APRIL 2016

Oh, my- have not updated in a while. But, I have been so "busy"!! My daughter uses that word as an excuse for anything she does not want to do - me thinks.

But, I have been prioritizing all the things I want to do. Love my knitting group, but am planning to meet only once a week for a while - Monday afternoons.

At church, we have started a Christian Book Fellowship and are going to be reading Watchman Nee's book, The Norman Christian Life. ...

At church, we have started a Christian Book Fellowship and are going to be reading Watchman Nee's book, The Norman Christian Life. We will be meeting every other Tuesday evening.

Also, starting to quilt a bit again. Finally got a small area set up in my bedroom for my sewing machine, iron, and a place for sorting and cutting. Will be fun.

And, finally, have decided to renew my membership at the Club 24 - with my daughter and son's prodding. Was going to just cancel, but got a good deal for the next year. So my goal is 4 times a week. Will see how that goes.

Looking forward to a warm, sunny Summer!!

thanks for your visit this morning... Our Albertson bought our Marketstreet/United Supermarket and as my daughter works there going on 10 years now I am a big fan... so Market street had a three day special on the chicken... but we have a Walmart ,too . So we are not so different. I love lazy Sundays... you have yourself a great one !

l'm glad your weather has warmed up Barb, ours was supposed to but it didn't materialise!
We're supposed to hit 70 degrees next week but it will probably be in the south and not up here.
lt's been raining on and off all day today and it's had a strong cold wind with it...we seem to have had an awful lot of rain and wind this winter!

The garden's looking more Spring like, the daffodils have been out a while and there are some lovely big buds on the tulips, some things are a little early like the violets and primroses whilst others, like the marsh marigolds should have already flowered and haven't. Mother Nature is nothing if not fickle.

l'm feeling a lot better now so my friend Ruth and l went to a big garden centre this afternoon, l wanted some little cacti plants for some pretty pots l was given on Mother's Day...it's a long while since l've had any cacti so l thought they'd be a bit different and look nice, l chose four different very prickly ones. DH planted them up for me and they look very nice on the conservatory windowsill.

Your leg sounds sore, you should have gone for stitches, l hope it heals well for you.
Well, l think it might be bedtime,
Take care emoticon

Hi Barb,

Nice to hear from you, l haven't been on here much myself lately mainly due to time but l've also been quite poorly with a bronchial chest infection. l't's been three weeks now but l'm feeling a lot better, just a chesty cough left and an intermittent voice which disappeared last Saturday and is just making a comeback.

The weather has had some nice moments but it's been a really wet and windy winter. Spring seems to be showing her face though we are getting some quite frosty mornings and last week we had two days of snow, it didn't stay long but it was certainly cold.

We've had a couple of walks around the local nature reserve but David's having quite a bit of pain in his leg and groin from a hernia so we've not done a lot. He's seen our GP and has been referred to a specialist but he's still waiting for an appointment. lt will probably mean an operation and doing nothing for six weeks afterwards...l can't wait...lol...he's not the sort to sit around doing nothing!

l hope you and yours are well, your quilt sounds nice, l'm trying to finish a sampler for a nephew but not getting very far as l've been looking after Joseph five days a week for the last six weeks, l hope to get back to it after Easter as he's starting nursery school so l won't be needed.

Have a wonderful week emoticon

sometimes just hanging around, poking through blogs is enough to eventually motivate me to pick up the "spark".... glad to see you
