Beautiful, busy weekend!

     Wow, this past weekend was FULL of activity and wonderful weather!!  Sooooo much to do and so little time to do it but with my son Jonathan's help, we got it done!  AND we managed to enjoy the lovely weekend as well.  Here is my weekend in bullet points:
          *  Friday night-collaspe cause I haven't been feeling very well--allergies, cold/sinus,
          *  Get up early Sat. morning, price the many items I had for the antique mall, clean house (well, at least try!)
          *  Take items to antique mall as well as newly painted shelf units,
          *  Work on booth at antique mall until 1:30pm, visit with fellow vendors,
          *  Go start to HAAM to volunteer (this is a resale ministry where I volunteer on Sat. when I can)
          *  Go home at 7pm and watch church on computer then collaspe (still feeling pookie)
          *  Get up EARLY Sun. morning, load items for shop in Winnie/go to Winnie with Jonathan,
          *  Work on shop at Winnie with Jonathan until 1:30pm
          *  Go home to play with my grandson Brayden (he and his mom, my daughter Brittany, had gone to Dallas for the weekend to visit my oldest daughter, Jennifer)
          *  Run to buy groceries with Jonathan before Brittany has to go to work at 6pm,
          * Come home, put up groceries and dress Brayden for the pumpkin patch,
          *  Go to the local pumpkin patch and take pictures of Mr. Brayden--he is so cute!!
          *  Go back home, fix dinner, put Brayden to bed and COLLAPSED!!

     THAT was my weekend and now back to the real world and my job--whew, do you feel sorry for me yet?!?

     I am so grateful for my children/grandchildren for all the help they give me in my often very hectic life.  Jonathan is my strong arm, my traveling buddy and my companion!!  You are the coolest, dude!!

     Well, hope you aren't totally exhausted just reading this crazy schedule--please say a prayer for me as I am still a bit under the weather and not feeling quite so 'fresh' right now.

     Love you all and will be posting some of the christmas projects I'm currently working on soon.  God bless all and any who read this,

Hope you enjoy these pic's of my sweet Brayden in the pumpkin patch!!

Really Cookin' Now!!

     Ok, two days in a roll---I'm really cookin' now!!  I can't believe I actually remembered to post something, anything, today to get into the habit of blogging again!!  Yeah me!!!!!!

     Isn't it funny sometimes how a mere 24hrs can make such a difference in one's life?   I find myself tired and listless today, just wanting to go home and do NOTHING!   My sweet grandson Brayden couldn't sleep last night--he has allergies/cold/runny nose and his mom had gone out with friends, soooooo----I was the designated babysitter.  Poor little thing kept waking-up with coughing, runny nose, etc.  I just held him and comforted him as much as I could.  He tried so hard to go back to sleep but he was just so restless.  I finally got him up and gave him baby Tylenol.  He cuddled for a few minutes then went absolutely CRAZY with laughter, giggles and joy!!  He was a totally different baby--just so cute and sweet, laughter at anything I did.
Well, his mom came home and took over at that point and I went to bed, tired but happy my sweet grandbaby was better.

     So, you might wonder why the above would make me so listless?  Because my daughter had informed me earlier this week that she and Brayden were going to move to Ft. Worth the beginning of next yr!  The thought of not having my Brayden around, seeing him everyday, is just almost unbearable to me!!  Ft. Worth is at least 4-5 hours away, just not close enough for me!!  Could there be a move in my future?!?  We'll be continued

God Bless all and any who read this,

"This is the day......."

"This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it"  Ps. 118:24
     As some of you probably have noticed, I'm NOT the best blogger!  I let things, issues, LIFE interfere and before I know it, days, weeks, MONTHS have passed and no blogging has occurred!  Well, this is a new day, a new dawn and it is a day to rejoice and be glad, just like Ps 118:24 declares.

     So, this is my goal--to blog AT LEAST 2-3 times each and every week, to share a scripture and a little part of my life and my business with you each time.  Please be patient with me while I work on this part of my life!!

     My wonder grandson is now almost 8 months old and crawling!  AND he is starting to pull up on furniture and stuff!!  They grow up sooooooo fast--we must enjoy them each and every minute of the day!
My business is on an even keel right now.  I've gone back into the antique mall--sales are slow, but it's starting to pick up.  My shop at Winnie is doing very well.  To see more on my shop go to my shop blog - and get a little look at life at the Remade Life Emporium!!  And I've recently started selling at a local flea market and boy, is that different!  It's really amazing how each market can be so different from the other.  It really keeps you on your toes!

     Well, that's it for this morning.  I hope you will 'hang' with me as I learn about life, art, business and well, everything!!
God Bless all and any who read this,
