Back in the saddle again...........

Treasures arrived!  Yesterday I was exhausted and I did some chores and took my walk and went and "early voted" but that was about it.  I'm trying to plan my garden and how to arrange to work on all the other projects around here.  I know it's healthy to have a lot of interests but there are only so many hours in the day and only so much energy that I can muster up! LOL!  But I am slowly "getting it together" and the weather is dreamy with sunshine and high 60's low 70's F and birds singing their little hearts out. 
So, tomorrow starts the Prim Village SAL at Fat Quarter Shop which I am participating in.  I just got the pattern today and the floss needed the other day.

 It comes with this sweet little charm too........
I had material for it already in my stash and I cut it to size and zigzagged the edges.  Now, where did I put my floss bags? 
 Yesterday, returning from my walk, Sue, the former book fairy and now the cross stitch fairy, pulled into my driveway.  She had a whole bag of cross stitch items and a book on botanical dyeing!
Who can't use cross-stitch fabric?   Thank you, Sue!
I've taken my walk and now I'm off to work on the craft's room and hopefully find those floss bags!  I also need to do some planting!  But before I go, here are your "tidbits"
I was just talking about "dump cakes" the other day and lo and behold...........here's the recipe
I'm not a beginner but I feel like one here in the south!  I am determined somehow some way to grow my own produce and can this year.  I had best get a move on too!  Do you garden?  Here's the link
 Hmm...this looks familiar............
Happy Trails!!!

  1. Such a cute cross stitch. The little charm is adorable too. I have never made a dump cake but have eaten them. So yummy. Good luck with the gardening. It has been years since we had a garden. Unfortunately, we do not have any place for one now. Loved your chuckle for the day. I can relate.

    4. I have been married to my wife for 6 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she doesn't love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like I always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to Dr Emu. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true. You can contact him via email: Emutemple@gmail.com He will help you in anything you need and quick to answer once you contact him through his whats-app number: +2347012841542

    1. A big thanks to Dr James for reserving my ALS disease with his effective herbal formula. I was diagnosed of ALS disease 5 months ago of all the horrible experience, I was bitterly in pains. My symptoms progressed so fast that I couldn't eat proper, walk, work, breath well, it was my worse part of life then. On this fateful day, I came across a post just like this concerning a patient who used Dr James herbal medicine herbal formula to reserve her ALS disease for over 4 years now. I was skeptical about it but I had no choice than to also contact this dr James I visited his blog site and made my orders. To cut it short, I used the herbal formula for six weeks as instructed and today makes it 7 months without no symptoms. I am also making my testimony about this miraculous did. I have been given 3 years ALS disease reserved guarantee after which i will make another purchase for another 3 years span again. Thank you very much dr James. For those who needs help, you can reach him via email on jamesherbalformula@gmail.com or WhatsApp number: +2348102574680 . Let's share this and help everyone. Don't judge until you give it a try

  5. We do garden. This year, just as in previous years, we are planning to cut back a bit, so.... We'll see. I am feeling the urge to dig in the dirt! I love your "Dear Journal..."

  6. I am the cat too...I slept so long after an early supper that now I am awake! I saw someone dying with avacado on facebook that must be a natural dye. Oh you will have fun!
    I have an adventure tomorrow I have a shawl to block I have the foam blocks so keeping my fingers crossed it goes well. It is for my sister in law.
    It snowed here today so I am REALLY jealous of your warm temps! :)

    1. Yes, I have been saving up the skins and the seeds from avocados that I eat. When did you make a shawl? You never said you were making a shawl! Where are the pictures? Oh, probably because it was a gift and you didn't want her to see it! Don't forget to take pictures though so you can show us AFTER she gets it. Good for you! I am enjoying this weather but by the time you get your Spring it will probably be hotter than Hades down here! LOL! I will pray that you stay awake today and that your blocking goes well!

  7. I'm sitting here listening to the wind howl at about 30-35 mph at 10:00 at night. Why does it always sound worse in the dark? We had a warm, in the 50's day, but the wind is supposed to be ushering in a cold front which is forecast to bring some rain/snow later in the week. We'll see.
    I think your cross stitch is really cute but my favorite is that sweet, sweet charm. I always have them all over my projects as progress keepers, even when I don't need them because they make me smile. We can always use more smiles can't we?
    I'm sticking fairly close to the hosue these days, only going out when I have to because of that nasty virus up here in Washington. Most everyone is getting paranoid about it.
    I can relate to the cat. I would like to just sleep all of the worry away. :-)
    Blessings,
    Betsy

    1. I would love a windy, howling night! I think that is the coziest but we have zero wind here usually unless there's a tornado! LOL! I love that charm too but I think it is too heavy to use as a progres keeper. I would like to make one of those cross stitch project bags and use it as the zipper pull. I know, I heard about the cases in Seattle. Remember, there is no sense worrying about things over which you have no control. All you can do is be as prepared as you can be and pray. Remember who's in charge. I will pray for you not to worry.

  8. I love your SAL project. Those little houses are so cute. I'm glad you're back in the saddle and that you had a visitor who brought you lovely and thoughtful things. I have a small garden with lots of lovely things in it but at the moment, it looks a little neglected. What with the winds and the rain and the cold air, I'm not feeling it!!There's a programme on BBC called 'Gardener's World', I wonder if you can get it? Once it's back on for the gardening season, in a couple of weeks, then it spurs me into action. You can grow almost anything from anything. Plant up some seeds of whatever you fancy,i.e. herbs, vegetables, flowers in empty eggboxes (cardboard!)and place on your windowsill. They'll soon come on and when it's time to transplant, just put them straight into pots or planters and the cardboard will break down in the soil. Hope that helps.

  9. I love BBC and I can get the news sometimes on You Tube. I'll see what else I can get. I'm also thinking of subscribing to Acorn which has lots of good programs from the UK. I love your shows....ours are trashy! I love a good mystery and read Agatha Christie as much as I could. We have a noxious weed here and neighbors that spray chemicals so container gardening is what I do. Unfortunately, my egg cartons are plastic but I have been saving toilet paper tubes! LOL! And for a person living alone I have quite a collection! LOL! Not sure what that says about me but at least I have plenty of little biodegradable pots! LOL! Thank you for the tips though! I put organic soil in my pots and today will be lettuce and radishes and maybe some flower seeds going in! Spring is so exciting! Thank you again!

  13. my husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr jeffrey can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr jeffrey . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. This is his E-mail:
