i don't know where the days go............
seems like just yesterday it was last week & now it's already the end of this week!! saturday after the church stamping workshop, i came home & planted 4 rose bushes & 2 irises in the front/side flowerbeds, had the "field" mowed by some mexican guys who were mowing a yard down the street, pulled weeds in the back flowerbeds, watered the grass, washed the car, did 3 loads of laundry.....and i had a security system installed because the day before my neighbor's house was broken into. they took ALL their electronic stuff -- 2 tv's that were bolted to the walls, etc.....AND they found the car keys & drove the car right out of the garage!!!!!!!!! the police said they were "professionals" because they didn't leave a single print!!!!! i've lived here 22 years without an alarm system. the area's still one of the best in houston, but that's getting a little too close to home - literally!!!! i pray every day when i leave for work that God will protect my home - & i trust Him, but still, it feels good to have something to scare them off with. i know it's just STUFF, & it all belongs to God anyhow, but still, it's stuff He's let me have & i don't really want some jerk stranger taking it without my permission!!! the bluebonnet field is gone & the yard is back!!!!
old young-at-heart ladies from church!!!!! (sorry, girls, just HAD to do that!!!! i mean it all in fun---you're not old, you were just born before me!!!!!!) gonna have to find a cute name for our little threesome!!!!!! maybe we'll be "the sam elliott stampers" because we've started watching sam elliott movies while we're stamping!!!!!!!!!! it's so cute to watch them swoon over him!!!!! but he's MINE girls!!!!!!!!
