Always a kid!!!

Thursday, March 28, 2013


I'm always a kid at least at heart. My body will no longer allow me to do the things I used to do. But I do plan on trying a zipline this year!!!!

    I like to play like the other kids do but you won't find me on a zip line! Not anywhere on my bucket list. Good thing because I'd probably kick the bucket trying and would never finish my list.

    I'm a kid at heart. Think that I am more or a kid than my kids are. I would like to zip line one day!

The Lamb

Wednesday, March 27, 2013


I am a Christian with a Jewish history. Won't go into any of this as it is hard to explain. But picked out this rug to hook a long time ago. I bought it on ebay and not on my favorite rug backing and was drawn so small that it made it hard to hook. I'm what you call a primitive hooker so I hook in a large #6 or #8 cut. This little rug should have been hooked with a #3 but I managed and finished it before Easter. It reminds me of Jesus and His sacrifice He made at Passover many many years ago. I think the lamb also reminds me of spring and all the new birth in the world as well.

I thought this was pretty funny. And really can relate to it. I think this is going to be my new motto. "Did I eat that?" And say it before everything I eat.

    Now I have to change from, "I wish I had not eaten that" to "will I eat that?" If I stop to ask, I may not eat it! emoticon

    Thanks for the laugh; BUT that really is an excellent motto. I think that would be a great sign to put up on my refrigerator as a gentle reminder BEFORE I open that door. Always think twice before you put something in your mouth!!
PS your work on your Spark page is beautiful and I love your cute little dog. He looks like the Easter bunny! emoticon
