New You in 2013

Church this morning was all about the NEW for 2013.  New Joy, new Life new You. . . I loved the lessons that I learned in 2012. . I wouldn't change a thing, hard lessons, but lessons I needed to learn.  Everything about 2012 is done and completely over. I am glad of that. The New Me (once the clearing out and cleaning of my house) is about to emerge, Free as a Butterfly.

The dance of 2013 was performed by Aminta this morning.  God is good and His Blessing rains down upon us.  She is in perpetual movement, some of the pictures may be a bit blurry.

Have a safe and Happy New Year. 
Many Blessings,

Andrew and Tambra
I was a Blessed Christmas Day.  The food was good, the company was terrific, and the day turned out excellent.  
God be with you and yours.   I am so thankful for the family I have.  Christopher is stationed in New Mexico and couldn't be with us this Christmas. He used up his time when his father passed last September.  Mom (Debra) needed him then.

Love and Blessings,

Becky's Party

A good time was had by all.

I am dressed with the Red sweater.  Yep, had to go out and find something red for all the Christmas parties. I am clearing out most of my house and I had given away most of my clothes. I hate shopping, but fortunately one of the grocery places (Target) had them on sale.  My beautiful daughter is standing beside me, long blonde hair and dressed in black (with lacy socks and bows).  Becky has the green sweater with Christmas Tree on the front.  She is so Special, she has become part of our family. Sometimes you can pick your family.  I am so Blessed with all my friends that have become family over the years now that most of my family has passed on.


Many Blessings,

Quilting Bee Girls Night Out Plus One

When the ladies get together there is a lot of talking. . . Vito, Marge, Dodie, Katy, Christina, Waynette and Janet

And listening closely are Waynette and Janet

Did you find the Plus One?  He is at the other end of the table.

When we take quilt bus trips, Dodie is one of the people who helps Katy coordinate.

Here is the Master behind all the quilt trips. She makes it look easy. She keeps us busy but not out of trouble once we get near a quilt store, it's total Bliss.

Our quilt Bee party was a success. We were homeward bound around 11:00 p.m. It was fun and the Plus One (Vito) help make the party quite a party. 

I happen to be on someone else's camera. So you won't see me in these pictures.

Red Sky in the Morning

Red sky at night
Sailor's Delight

Red Sky in the Morning
Sailor's Warning

We received that warning last night that today would be rainy, stormy and a cool front would be moving in.  The sky this morning shows that very clearly.

God painted the sky so pretty, but it is a warning for today.  I love seeing nature in all her glory.

Ducks are back

5 ducks in the water on this side of the road

Busy, Busy road.  They patiently waited for all the cars to pass and then crossed.

We have a straggler, any food?  Nope, back in the water.

I talk to them, they wag their tail feathers.  I tsk them, they are waiting to cross, so I watch and see if I have to jump out and slow down the cars.  Nope, as busy as it was, there was a break in traffic and off they went.  I don't know if it's hearing, the feel of the ground or seeing the cars whiz by. But then absolutely knew when to cross.

Full Moon 10 29 2012

It was a beautiful evening to walk to the bridge.

There was only one duck on my side of the bridge.

The rest of the ducks were on the other side of the road.  Go Figure!

Yogi Bear

1996 - 10/12/2012
Crossed over Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
