Just a little Monday musings rambling on about bunnies, beaches, blankets (quilts of course) with thoughts of avoiding boredom!
There is a historical marker in my community by Galveston Bay which reminded me that we, as both Texans and especially as Americans, are a resilient people. I dare say not a community across this great land has been spared of some sort of calamity in its past history – from blizzards to floods, fires… Continue reading Resilience
What a wonderful whirlwind of a month! Thought I'd stop to catch my breath and touch base with a quick recap of my August adventures, sew far (grin). Corpus Christi or Bust!

Ever notice how many cliches there are about rain? "Rainy days and Mondays always get me down"....according to a popular song back in my generation. "Saving for a rainy day" can sometimes result in all those rainy days coming during your vacation! Or what about "anyone who thinks sunshine brings happiness has never danced in… Continue reading Rainy Days and Mondays
We just returned from the Golden Triangle Quilt Guild Quilt Show and Market in Beaumont - what a fun weekend! I love quilt shows, they are like family reunions!

Over the weekend I posted this photo on facebook of me "shopping" for paint chips to consider for our reconstruction with the caption "think we will go neutral." I'm cracking up at all the responses! Everything from "Egads!" to "they all look like you." Yep, this gal loves color! I'm going to keep you guessing… Continue reading Monday Musings: Let’s Be Colorful
Today marks the 6 month anniversary of Hurricane Harvey's flooding of our home. My Monday musings are not focusing on what has been "lost" but instead the blessings that have come through this experience and the things I am learning. For example - it's people that are important, not stuff. Don't misunderstand, it's not a… Continue reading Monday Musings – 6 months post Harvey
