How do they do this?

I love looking at quilts.  Someday I would love to make one like this.  Not this dark. I love how it flows.
I know my kids will give me a hard time about my rainbow look again.
The time, the planning, the material, the start of this whole project must have always been the center of this quilters world.
I have never started or finished a project this big and probably never will.
Found this picture on a blog and it was taken at a quilt show.

Where have you been lately?
What are you doing today?
Whats new?

I miss you!

Imagine someone important to you sitting in this chair.  
What would you say to this person that you've never SAID before?

This is a writing challenge.
Write as much as you want.

Tell it.

Read, Reuse, Recycle

 Have you ever seen this?  
When I first saw it in the parking lot of the grocery store, I had to go back and take a picture.
These are usually used for old clothes.
 I wonder where they really end up?
Do they get sent to other countries?  Or are the sold in a used book store?
I guess I will have to look more into this.
To bad it's not a tree library, that would be so fun.
This box is so full.
I hope they all find there forever happy home on a shelf with other great stories!

April Photo A Day

Here's that list to follow along with.
I'm already a day behind...story of my life.
For yellow, I was thinking about polishing my nails yellow!
Looking down, funny how I'm always looking the clouds, to talk to someone, the top shelf always has the best stuff and to see where I'm walking!
There is that bridge with all the freeway traffic..good idea.
So my goal will be here every day, I will be back later today to get started.
Tell your friends about this and let's do this together.
If you know how to show me your pictures that would be even more fun.  I don't get any comments so maybe you can help me figure out how to get that working.  You can email me at
Or maybe my bonus daughter will help me again, she is simply amazing!
Have a great day.
Happy picture taking!

April Fools on the mouse

I have one of those funny kids's in my life.  When the mouse doesn't work for me I know to turn it over and dust it off.  
So today when I turned it over to solve this problem, I found I had been fooled...oh haha
Then when brother sat down in front of the computer..hahaha...he yelled out..Oh you're funny!
I hope this is her only joke.

That grocery store game

 At the grocery store I shop at they have this game and you get a game piece for shopping there.
Well, you have to buy certain products and you get them that way.
As you can see I am two away from becoming a millionaire.  Seem to be the story of my life.
But, I keep going back shopping, in hope's to find that one lucky game piece.
The other day I was standing in a line that wasn't moving to quickly.
I started talking to a man who was in front of me.
We made small talk about the covers of the magazines,  He said he reads the covers to have something to talk about.  I laughed and said, "Me too!" 
:The line moved and as he was about to leave, I said, "It was fun talking to you".  He smiled, and handed me all of his game pieces and said,"Good Luck".
I was so excited and thanked him.
He gave me 20 game pieces. They haven't made me a winner but, I feel like I missed out on having a new friend, just from making small talk.
