Have you not heard???

the Creator of the ends of the earth." Isaiah 40:28

A new day and a new look on the blog

I made a few changes in the look of my blog........guess I was bored with the same ol'-same ol'.
I think that this new look is kind of kicky and fresh, and goes with the newest quiltie picture, so that's a good thing !

Other changes........I signed up for new car insurance today.  Had a little oopsy occur back in November of last year, when I accidentally backed into a parked vehicle on the parking lot of my church.   Insurance paid $519., no big deal, seems to me,.........but when I got my insurance renewal invoice, they had nearly doubled my premiums !    That may be understandable to THEM, but it is not AFFORDABLE to ME !  

So Geico is out, and Nationwide is in.  Let's pray that there are no more incidents OR accidents !   Plus, now, I have roadside assistance, although, again, I hope I never need it !

My middle grandchild turned 7 yesterday...........Happy Birthday to Timothy Daniel, Jr. !  Wish they wouldn't grow up so fast, so far away !

I have forgotten to mention it, but I found the c.d. I had, to download Image Zone 4.0, so I'm back to using the great photo editing program that I loved !  Turns out it came with my photo printer, I think.  Praise God in all things, great and small !

This is one of three beauties that bloomed together in my backyard.  I forgot that I moved some bulbs, so they were a beautiful surprise to me.......and so big !   I trimmed back all of my monkey grass today as I noticed new growth in the middle.   My Violets are regrowing, and already blooming, my Rhododendron bushes survived the winter and are bursting open, and my Tiger Lily is coming up.  There are lots of things that I don't even recognize, but it all just gets me so excited to watch every year !   God's handiwork is just so very awesome.

My daughter and I talked gardening long-distance for an hour or more the other day, and it just makes me wish that we lived close enough to share yardwork !


  1. Daffodils, the first happy face on spring! I like your bright swirls, Dolly's Home is a nice place to visit, always ~
    I had my first-ever-accident, and I did not think to ask for any witness to help defend my cause. My rates are increasing ridiculously, so I will be doing the same thing as you, shopping for a better rate...!


  2. Love the new look and the word "kicky"! It's so cute

    Glad Spring is springing somewhere, here in Indiana we're haveing lower than normal temps. Blech!

    A man ran a stop sigh in January and pulled out in front of my husband. Totally his fault, not my hubs...but our car was totalled out...we had just put $2300 in repair work into it to keep it going...thankfully, we got a check that helped cover most of the cost of a replacement (that needs work!).

    Hang in there. This is just a practice run for Heaven!

  3. Thanks for the newsy post! I need to do some insurance shopping too - premiums are so different across the agencies! I still like that brown beauty (with colorful diamonds...but I'm wondering about those borders...
    I think I will put up my window flower baskets again this year. Did not do last year with so much going on in the summer, I knew I could not keep up with tending them. Keep those flower picture coming (YAY for finding photo editing disc)! I can't wait to see the many different blooms that are coming up at your place.
    I'm happy to see you are enjoying quilting!

  4. Sorry to hear about your accident...its behind now...and thats the good part about bad stuff I think. I feel thankful as I check off Dr. & Dentist visits this week. We had such a fun shopping trip yesterday, I will post about it but not yet...hubby is waiting on me to go for groceries. I got the prettiest quilted table runner yesterday...well.... square shaped and Love it! Your new blog background is oh so cheerful and the daffodils are the most beautiful spring flowers! Yes..yes yes. Happy day to you Dolly. I'm off to the cold world of snowflakes.....again...lol.


Thanks for stopping by !
