Been Busy Busy

The last few days have been really busy.  My mom's birthday was Thursday and we had a family get together on Friday.  All of us kids took care of the food and cake.  My sister made a yummy carrot cake.  She always makes tasty cakes.  Also on Friday, I went to my mother-in-laws for a quilting lesson.  She is teaching me how to make different kind of blocks.  So far I have put together a 9 patch, churn dash, jacob's ladder and I am working on a bear paw.  My mother-in-law is the sweetest mom a daughter-in-law could have.  I love her to death.  Saturday, I have been dejunking the basement.  I have so much junk.  I have a car load of stuff that I am taking to the Humane Society's store.   I am taking 2 vacuums so , now I am down to 3.   Just couldn't let go the third one.  I need to go through all of my books.  I probably have over 700 hard back books.  I going to donate them to a small library we have here in town.  Today, I went to church.  I enjoy going to church.  It makes my week go better.  I did a hour or two of scripture studying.  I try to study the scriptures at least an hour a day.  Really helps with the depression.  This coming week is going to be as busy.   Hope everyone has a good week. 


  1. good for you for dejunking!! I bet it is a good feeling to get rid of some of the stuff you don't need any more and know that it will help others down the road!

    neat that you are learning to quilt, my mom did some quilting. I think it is neat that you have a good relationship with your MIL.

    wow 700 books!!

    I hope it is a good week for you too!

    thanks for the prayers for Koda :)

  3. You were busy - whew - you know I have always wanted to learn or know how to quilt. That is so cool. ANd I love carrot cake and cleaning out the house! sandie
