In Memory of....

Remembering The Green Beans

click on the button and read about Heidi.  Hard to believe it's been a year.  I remember the call saying she was gone so vividly.  I can't imagine how much more vivid it is for her mom and dad.  Lauren and Josh my prayers are with you today and this whole next few weeks.  May God grant you grace and peace as you hit this year mark.

A relaxing weekend

John had Monday off so Saturday we hooked up the trailer and hit the road.  We headed south to the Gulf to our favorite area,  Padre Island National Seashore.  We have never camped here before but enjoyed our stay.  The sites were primitive meaning no water or electric hookups.  Not a bad thing unless your pipes in your trailer froze and the filter canister and a shower knob were blown up in the process ::note to self ..... winterize the trailer next year even though you live in Central Texas::  Actually it turned out fine as the campground had running water we just had to go fetch it.  We walked the beach several times a day and each one was a different experience.  We found starfish, jelly fish, shells, crabs, sand dollars and dead fish.  Apparently there was a huge red tide that happened a few weeks ago and stuff is still washing up.  I need to upload pictures.  The weekend was very relaxing giving the whole family a time to forget about mergers, school, appointments and the like.  Our good neighbors watched the dog for us and she got a glowing report as well.
Photos to follow tomorrow later

twenty ten

Happy New Year!
Starting the year off with some deep cleaning and organization.  School starts back Monday and the teacher isn't ready!  On the other hand my craft room got a bit more organized, I finished off an entire spool of brown thread, and finished up two projects.  I will be ordering my walking foot off amazon so I can finish another project without stretching the fabric all wonky.  When I finish my other task on my to do list I will post a pic of the kids in their jammies that I made them for Christmas.  Off to organize school.  Inputing 5 weeks of 3 cores into HST+! YIKES!!
