Praise !

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? I Corinthians 3:16
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.

Day by Day

Life goes along, quietly.  Praise God !

A couple of days ago, I spent many hours doing some cross-stitch that was printed on a couple of towels (accomplishing very little).  I must say that counted cross stitch is a much better project.  The  printed x's do not line up with the weave of the fabric, making it a much slower process to try to make nice even stitches. 


So yesterday I roused myself to go OUTSIDE and work in the sunshine while the ground was at a good stage for tilling
 I started the day with taking some photos of the beautifully colorful trees on my land. 


And I snapped a shot of my Rhododendrons that I finally got replanted in this big pot.  I love the beautiful red color that the leaves have changed to.


















And this Spirea is really pretty right now too.




My big surprise was when I found that my Elephant Ear was blooming........I have never had one do that before, and didn't even realize that they COULD bloom !



I got holes dug for my new plants, including another Rose of Sharon shrub that Rose offered to me. 

I also tilled up some beds along my boundary line, and planted the Irises that were leftover when I thinned the ones that were growing along the front of the trailer.  I get such pleasure out of that little tiller......so glad that I made (and was ABLE to make) the purchase.

Today was my yearly female exam, which went well, with NO mammogram, thank God !

I've spent an hour or so hand-quilting this evening, but there's not enough new progress to document with another photo yet, so I'll leave off for now.

I surely do miss my Kelley, Tim, Zoe, Timothy and Seth.......hope they're having a good week !
