words to live by.......

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!!"

Where did August go?

     Well, August is half over, and although the weather is some better here in Missouri.......it is still HOT!  Our poor horses have the pasture eatin to the dirt, and bails of hay are so hard to come by right now and the cost and arm, leg and your first born!!!!!  But, I love my babies so, in the words of my husband "it is what it is"! So, the hay search continues!!!!!


Some nights we put thier leads on and "walk" them like puppies, lol!!

    Tomorrow is my beautiful (and I am a very lucky mom I have 3 beautiful daughters) daughter Sami's 24th birthday!  She has given me a wonderful son in law whom I love to pieces (mostly because he puts up with me, lol!!) and an amazingly beautiful grand daughter Belle.
Sami about 6 months old
Sami always has a smile on her face, she has made me so proud.  I am blessed to have been choosen to be her mom!!
Belle, Joey and Sami
This is one of my favorite pictures of the three of them (the secret is, even though it is barely there Joey has a smile on his face, a very hard thing to capture with Joey).

     Have been sewing a little more, and that makes me happy.  My sewing room is my escape, when things get rough I take a trip upstairs, turn on my music and pretend its only me!!!!

     This was made for my July partner Doll Quilters Monthly!  This was a hard on to give up!  Most people know that red, white and blue is my favorite color, lol.......ok colors!!!!
     So, while I am sitting here trying to up date, we are getting rain......it is about time!  I hope it last awhile, but the bad things is.......my horses are in the pasture, but I really dont think they mind, it's been so dry so long I do even they beleive it is a welcome restbit!

     So with that said I will leave you with............
