Praise !

"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"

The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

Busy day !

I got up and washed all the Sunday dishes that I refuse to wash on the Sabbath, and started the laundry, even though I had to sneak things on and off of the clothesline due to the weather.  I cut out an outfit from an old doll-clothes pattern that I had saved from WAY BACK, nearly 30 years ago, when MY little girl played with me dolls. 
This baby doll that I bought second-hand, has a muslin body that comes all the way to her hands and her feet, so I was blessed that this patten included a long-sleeved top and pants.  She really needs a bonnet or hat, doesn't she?
The doll was found
at a local second-hand store, and it says da-da (with a stutter sometimes), night-night, I love you, and she giggles.  It's tiny, 12 inches, and Allyssia just loved it and tried to mimic it's voice.
During the making of the outfit, I heard the neighbor mowing his yard, and I thought that I should go and mow near the mailbox, so he could tell where I start and stop (he's been away for awhile).  I had to stop the mower for some reason when the hubby hollered at me, and then it wouldn't restart.  So I just headed right back to the sewing machine.  In a little bit, I heard the mower restart, and knew that hubster was waiting for me to come back to it.  He mowed last week, but then he fell again, this time at Church, and has been moving from the walker, to his cane, and now to a painful limp, so I had to take over the mowing chore.

I finished the yard, finished the outfit, and then made two aprons for the hubs to wear when he has his dinner in the recliner.   After visiting with family for an hour or so, I decided to cut out and make an extra couple of aprons for 'whatever'........good thing to have on hand.  The picture's terrible, but that's two of the purple aprons, and two tan and black for hubby.
I forgot to mention the other day that I had put out a 'garden'.  This is it folks....

.....it consisted of two tomato plants, and 5 marigold plants (the 'stink' of them is supposed to repel bugs from the tomatoes)  Yesterday,I found a volunteer tomato plant growing out at the mailbox garden, so I transplanted it today, to right in the middle.

  2. Lol, I love how your cat is always in the thick of things:) It's funny, we are thinking alike because I've been thinking of making some aprons too.

    I have a few marigolds near my tomato plants too. They do seem to help. Nothing tastes better than a just-picked homegrown tomato!
