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 !
" 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
