Exciting Times

Isn't it exciting to see all new Spring growth! We had a very mild Winter here, so lots of plants survived. Very excited about that! We have new tomato plants growing in the garden and in some grow bags at the side of the house. And there are figs growing on the tree. On the lower right are some orchids that have rebloomed for me. Thank you. And amaryllis I picked from the yard.

I made some pimiento cheese the other day and Mr. Muddling and I had a sandwich for lunch. This is a reminder to me of childhood. Our mother made those same sandwiches for us, but with white bread.

And this is Buddy's attempt to hypnotize me into giving him at least some  of that sandwich! He makes me laugh all the time.

And....... believe it or not, I finished a quilt top! I talked about the beginnings of it here. I've altered the pattern a bit, both deliberately and accidentally, but I think it turned out pretty well. We'll see how long it takes me to get it quilted. No promises.

Another page from my Mary Engelbreit daily calendar, and so true. Friends ARE the icing on the cake of life! Thank you for being icing for me. Even if we never see each other in the flesh, I still count you friends and I appreciate you!

It is a beautiful, very warm day here in Houston, Texas. I hope you're having a wonderful day in your world!

Hugs and kisses,

You know, this is really true! It is so often up to us whether or not we are happy. There are always bad things in this life, but there are also always good things. I'm trying to look at the good instead of the bad. How about you?

It makes me very happy to see these beautiful eggs from our chickens.

I am very happy, too, about the blackberries growing on the vines out in our very own back yard.

God has been very good to me and I am thankful. And happy!

I hope you are, too.

Hugs and kisses,
