Memorial Day

It's Memorial Day so go and Thank a verteran. We belong to a small church so I did go up to the one member that servered and thanked him. I wrote on Facebook to a few of my adopted cadets that graduated VMI and are serving our country now. They servered and serve to give us the ability to go to any church we choose. They don't get much respect now so I think we should honor them when we can. So if any of you reading this are a veteran than Thanks. Pass my thanks on to those you know. Have a great day. God Bless America

So I bought this one plant a few years ago for about $11.00. I have cut it back after the blooming season yearly. I have to admit I'm going to dig it up before I move. I'll plant it down at my sister-in-law's house in Salem. I'm hoping it will survive the move.

Pink luggage

So I WANTED I didn't need well I guess I did since I need a big suitcase to go abroad. I saw a pink one and I had to have the pink one. I went to TJ Maxx and didn't buy one I saw and it was gone the next time I visited the store. So I went to another TJ Maxx and found this. Now suggested retail was 340.00 so picking it up for 69.99 was a steal! I just have to find out the size for carry one because it does have a 21" to match. I'll have to send my sister-in-law to pick it up for me if it's still there. Oh and I'm almost finished Kimberly's bag and I'll post as soon as I'm done.

She's home

She's back home.
Introducing Diva.
Pretty little thing I got back in 1994.
She helped Erin at the quilt retreat.
When I go aboard she'll be helping my sister-in-law Linda.
I've got to get back to Kimberly's bag.
Have a blessed weekend everyone.

Today is the 59th Annual National Day of Prayer

I got this from Selvage Blog

The Bible says that if we will humble ourselves and pray, He will heal our land.
I think we need it.

My flowers are getting ready to burst open. I love this Clematis that I found at my local Southern States a few years ago. I’ll post as it opens to its entire splendor in a few days. I just noticed the Peony’s are getting ready also so I’ll snap those tonight. Love this brief window when God’s garden starts to bloom.

I forgot the cord : (

I forgot the cord (you know the one that goes from the camera to the computer) so picture posting will have to wait until tonight. I got a package in the mail from Em and it's beautiful so make sure you check back latter.
