Wow! So much has been happening around here! First, I have been knitting some new patterns lately...

Called the "Simple Cable"

"Lace Stitch With Pointed Border"

"Lace Stitch With Scalloped Border"
And, we have been gardening and working with flowers a lot...

Lydia in the garden.

A bouquet of flowers that I gathered for a tea party my mom went to.
The Garden we've been thinning out is called "Micah's Garden"

We've had a hail storm...

We walked around in the Greensboro Museum. That was a lot of fun! What was really cool is that they had a picture of my Great-Grandfather, who I never knew but my Dad has fond memories of...

That's Pappi!
He was a fire chief in Greensboro.
Sorry, this is not the best picture of a picture of him.
I got out my Dad's train from when he was a little boy.
It's really a cute little train when it works properly.
 This is a paint-by-number that my brother started way back when?
Josiah, you need to finish this!
Well, that's all for now! Hopefully I'll get around to telling about today's babysitting experience some other time;) A family of seven, nine and a half hours, bunches of boys, cute little girls... Come back later, whenever later is;)

Our Great God!

Psalm 39:4
"Lord, make me to know my end,
And what is the measure of my days,
That I may know how frail I am.

Psalm 40:2-3
He also brought me up out of a horrible pit,
Out of the miry clay,
And set my feet upon a rock,
And established my steps.
He has put a new song in my mouth —
Praise to our God;
Many will see it and fear,
And will trust in the Lord.

Creeps Crawl Up My Feets...

This is an unedited picture of a spiderweb that I took the other day. Look carefully into the web and see if you find anything strange...

 Tell me if you find it and have fun looking!

Isn't our God an awesome God? Look what He has made!

Last night's rain left everything refreshed

Go out and see all the beauty that your Creator has made. You will be amazed!

It's a mystery...

I once read a book called “Just For the Fun of It” by Carl Goerch.  It was written in 1954 I believe. Anyway, this is just one of the many riddles and fun stories he had to tell. 

Her Name Was Margaret 
Hal Trentman, of the Occidental Life Insurance Company, put this one up to us:
A man by the name of Brown left Chicago and went out to the Pacific Coast. He stayed out there twenty years. Then he returned to Chicago on a visit. The second day he was there he ran into an old friend on State Street. They stopped and reminisced.
“By the way,” said the friend, “I’ve got married since you left Chicago. This is my little girl: I’m taking her into the drugstore to get her an ice cream soda.”
Brown turned to the little girl and said: “What’s your name, Honey?”
And the child said: “My name is the same as my mother’s.”
Whereupon Brown said: “Oh, your name is Margaret also, is it?”
The child nodded and said: “Yes, sir.”
Now then: in view of the fact that Brown did not know whom his friend had married, how did he know the child’s name was Margaret?
It isn’t a catch problem: it is perfectly logical and there is a perfectly logical answer to it.
See if you can work it out.
