" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31

"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4

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.


  1. Dolly, I love reading about your little corner of the world and share it with friends and family. My mother in love is now a faithful reader of your blog. You always make me smile.

    Hope hubby stays on the mend and NO more falls!

  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!

  3. The thing about your BLOG is like you never left, i see my fabric in all that you do and that brings memories!!!! Take care


Thanks for stopping by !
