New Year New Challenges

Trying to be a better person, better mom, Mimi, wife, etc. Spend less time on computer and more time on projects. New project this year is moving into the back of our business. A few things have to be done to make it a home, W & D connections (no more lugging sheets back and forth), kitchen, and a tub/shower. Some fencing and a storage building are a must. When we are done it will be great. Will sell the big house and save lots of money. It will give us more time to travel and see those dgs's more.

Seek and ye shall find. Just when you need it he'll answer you.

Psalm 38 (New International Version)
A psalm of David. A petition.
1 O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath.
2 For your arrows have pierced me, and your hand has come down upon me.
3 Because of your wrath there is no health in my body; my bones have no soundness because of my sin.
4 My guilt has overwhelmed me like a burden too heavy to bear.
5 My wounds fester and are loathsome because of my sinful folly.
6 I am bowed down and brought very low; all day long I go about mourning.
7 My back is filled with searing pain; there is no health in my body.
8 I am feeble and utterly crushed; I groan in anguish of heart.
9 All my longings lie open before you, O Lord; my sighing is not hidden from you.
10 My heart pounds, my strength fails me; even the light has gone from my eyes.
11 My friends and companions avoid me because of my wounds; my neighbors stay far away.
12 Those who seek my life set their traps, those who would harm me talk of my ruin; all day long they plot deception.
13 I am like a deaf man, who cannot hear, like a mute, who cannot open his mouth;
14 I have become like a man who does not hear, whose mouth can offer no reply.
15 I wait for you, O LORD; you will answer, O Lord my God.
16 For I said, "Do not let them gloat or exalt themselves over me when my foot slips."
17 For I am about to fall, and my pain is ever with me.
18 I confess my iniquity; I am troubled by my sin.
19 Many are those who are my vigorous enemies; those who hate me without reason are numerous.
20 Those who repay my good with evil slander me when I pursue what is good.
21 O LORD, do not forsake me; be not far from me, O my God.
22 Come quickly to help me, O Lord my Savior.
New International Version (NIV)

It's been a while. New Year Resolution

It's been a long time since I blogged. I am going to try to keep it active. Beginning with "What Kind of Sweater Are you?" This is sooooo right on. LOL.

You Are an Argyle Sweater

You are contemplative, brainy, and serious.

You don't take much lightly - life is too important for that.

You are a very determined person. You don't let anything stand in your way.

You think out your actions and act deliberately. You don't waste time, money, or resources.

4th of July, finishing, and newest of DGS

Work has started and the tiling is done on the back patio project.

Didn't do much for the 4th. Cooked gardenburger Barbeque Chicken, potatoe salad and corn. And had a great cake the DD2 made us. It was decorated like a flag, had blueberry's for the stars and strawberries for the strips. Yum Yum. Watched fireworks from our balcony for a little while.

I got my KAL Menehune Cobblestones done yeahhhhhhh.

Got some bamboo and wool plyed. Really turned out well.

And DGS is getting way to big, too fast. I am missing so much.
