I woke up rather emotional today. I’m sure you can relate. As the country song goes “some days are diamonds some days are coal.” I struggled to wrap my brain around this isolation thing ~ I mean, seriously, I have worked from home the majority of my life, so why am I finding this so… Continue reading Fine Dining ~ At Home
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
The title of this post could be multiple choice (a) chasing rainbows (b) rough roads and rainbows or (c) follow your dreams. Actually it is a tad of each. Warning Will Robinson, transparancy ahead, proceed with caution! First Things First - Chasing Rainbows It all sorta started Sunday morning heading to rehearsal prior to the… Continue reading Chasing Rainbows
At the speed of lightening...or so it seems as we have had more than our fair share of lightening lately! Forgive me dear readers, it's been 15 days since my last ramble...and I promise I've not been muzzled (although some may wish that could happen every now and then)...life has been a whirlwind (and thankfully… Continue reading How Fast Can The Quilt Rambler Ramble?
March winds. Looks like change is in the air. Or so the saying goes. For this rambler its been a crazy month ~ as a friend just texted me "you seem to be on the cutting edge of faith-testing." Here's what's been happening in and around The Quilt Rambler studio this past week... A Good… Continue reading On a Wing and a Prayer
Happy New Year! I realize it's the close of the 3rd day already, but it's never too late to wish someone a Happy New Year is it?...well, maybe there is a point when it's time to refrain from the greeting ~ probably before the next big holiday I'd imagine. Who writes these rules anyway! Regardless,… Continue reading I’ve Got A Planner and I’m Not Afraid To Use It!
I love turning over a new calendar page, and today, December 1st isn't without exception - the only exception is it has come too quickly! Sew much to do, so many things that will be left undone simply because there "isn't enough time". Such is life! Yesterday was a day of reflection as my thoughts… Continue reading A Moment To Reflect
Many times we refer to a decision to change as a do-over, turning over a new leaf, or a second chance. Sometimes that second chance isn't by choice, but by the mercy of God, and we are grateful that there is a second chance. Things just happen for a reason. We carry on! I can't… Continue reading Second Chance
Or so the sign says! It will be a stress-free zone once it's in full operational mode. Yep, today we began moving shelving and totes from the storage unit to the studio. As our youngest son commented "Its good to see the rooms cluttered with things instead of debris" - that was certainly a welcomed way… Continue reading You Are Now Entering A Stress-Free Zone
But having a bucket proved to be useful! Especially when I discovered water rising in my lower level studio about 7 PM Thursday! Short and sweet version instead of the usual ramble as this has been a long night (it's actually the wee hours of the next morning as I write this). I was working… Continue reading Not Exactly on My Bucket List
