Oh someone left me a comment today about about 4:30 p.m. Pacific Standard Time...Blogger deleted it before I even had a chance to read it :( :( :( So I don't know which one of you dear friends wrote to me....no fun when Blogger deletes comments left for me WITHOUT MY PERMISSION :( :( As soon as it reappears...I'll be able to write back!!!
Oh, there's so many beautiful blogs I don't know what to do with myself. The last few days I've found some really neat ones that combine my love of Jesus Christ, vintage, romantic, antique, rustic, country...etc...I'm on sensory overload..and my heart is so joyful I just can't stand it. One of the blogs I just recently found/started following is Brenda's over at Shabby Cats and Roses. Click here to pay her a visit. When you look at the header on her blog, you'll understand why I love it!!!! I love pink...and this, well, it's a lot of eye candy...all the pretty dishes and beautiful things. I love how she makes everything so hospitable and inviting!!! It's amazing.

Another really sweet blog is The Homespun Heart which is written my friend Monica. She's a really neat lady who has a heart for Jesus and her family.

I've been knitting quite a bit the last few days. I find it really relaxing. Yesterday, I started from scratch and finished to French bath mitts!!! I'll use them for washing my face and in the shower, too. It's funny...but I like to use a fresh mitt every time I wash my face or shower :) :) :) ...and those glass dessert bowels I found at a yard sale for $1...well, one of those is now my soap dish :) :) :) so pretty!!!!
My dad and I have been having silly spats today...but they end in forgiveness and laughter. We were arguing over whether or not it uses less energy to leave an appliance plugged in or not...Well, I'm obviously right on this one...:) :) :) ..hee hee hee...It uses less energy to completely unplug an appliance from the wall when not in use...especially if it's not needed...ie) when we're not watching television...it is competely unplugged from the wall. It keeps our energy bill low!!! Sometimes I wonder why we even have spats over silly stuff like this...but I love my dad, anyway...and vice versa :) :) :) So that's a good thing...and I'm still thankful for my dad!!!! For my married friends out there, is that what married life is like sometimes...silly spats and then forgiveness/laughter? I don't know...but I think living with my dad is teaching me some valuable lessons on how to think of others first before myself.
I had some other things I wanted to write about today...and I completely forgot!!!! WAaaggghhhh...if I remember, I'll write a new post. What sorts of fun projects are you all up to ? I love reading about all the canning, crafts, decorating etc that everyone does...you all are great and I'm the blessed/honored one to be able to take a peak into what brings joy to your hearts!!! Thank you!!!
That's about it for the moment. I'm off to knit...surprise, surprise. I'm also going to try making some lace edgings and try out this idea I have in my head for a project. Pray that it goes well...if it does, I'll take a photo and post it here!!!!
