Postcards From Heaven, Block 6, June

It's time for our June block of Postcards from Heaven!  Another of my favorite scriptures - I have a lot of favorites, lol.

Are you a morning person?  I am not...been a night owl since birth.  I do, however, love getting up around 4am, and get going on my day - but it hardly ever happens.  How well do you wake up?  I usually stumble around, looking for coffee and trying to remember how to make it, and wondering if I'm supposed to be somewhere.  With, you know, actual clothing on.  Clothing that isn't jammies.  It takes half a pot of coffee before I'm truly joyful, I'm afraid!

Jenny's gorgeous block - 

How I love her style!  Jenny will be uploading the alternate wording to her blog, so go check it out once her post is up - we try to coordinate our uploads, but there is a 10 hour difference in time to deal with, so please be patient with us!  Click >>HERE<< for her blog.

As usual, I've used the King James Bible for my scripture reference.  You can get this month's postcard from my craftsy shop, just click >>HERE<<.

Be blessed as you stitch!!

I admit it, I'm no good at waiting.  Once my mind is made up, I like to act on it, right then.  

But.  If a thing is worth having, it's worth waiting for, right?  Like, a house.  Sigh.  Still waiting on paperwork.

Reminds me of my Army days.  Hurry up and wait.

My sewing machine is packed away, which is a good thing, because I'm so absent-minded right now nothing would turn out right.  I'm working on hand projects.  Which is Allie-speak for "nothing to show you".

Mum and I went to visit our friend Shirley last week, it was so good to see her.  She had her 86th birthday recently, is still walking miles a day, and still moves like a young girl.  Her family bought her a new porch set for her birthday, it's just gorgeous - wouldn't you love to have a porch like this for morning coffee?

And a random pic from Mother's Day, because I have nothing quilty or stitchy to show.

Mum says "hi".  I'm taking her to the heart doctor later this week, her batteries on her pacemaker are almost done, so they're keeping a close eye on her.  Haha - my mom is battery-operated.

That's all for now, just wanted to pop in and say "I'm still here - well, most of me".  Not too sure about mentally.

Happy Dance!

Last night, I was finishing up a project - worked on it all day, and all night.  I finally finished, turned on my computer, and read an email from our realtor - read it again, and promptly burst into tears.  They accepted our offer!!!  We got the house!

I get my own sewing room!  Oh it has so much room - you should see us today, planning and scheming who gets what room, and we haven't even signed anything or had an inspection.  But we will.

When I read the email, it was 1:00am - whoever wasn't sleeping was still at work.  I had nobody to share the good news with!  I called my mom, as I knew she'd be up, and she was very excited...texted my son, who also got very excited...when hubby finally came home, he asked if there was any news.  I said yes, they sold the house....just as he got ready to blow his top, I said "to us".  Giggle.

As you can imagine, I'm going to be very busy for the next little bit, I may not be posting much or visiting.  Not sure how long we have to wait to take possession, but once we do it's going to be a whirlwind!  I can't wait to show you the house!

Hermione isn't very excited though....she's going to miss the wildlife in her tree.

See you soon, I hope!

Hi folks - been MIA for a bit - haven't been blogging, visiting your blogs, or much of anything online.  I do have good reason, though....

I've been taking lots of pics of my crabapple tree outside my sewing room window, as it may be the last spring I'm here to enjoy it.  We've put another offer on a house, and are in negotiations now.

We went again to view it today.  I like it....a lot.  We'll see.

Also, mum hurt her foot again.  Walked into a door, and sliced her toe on the bottom of the door.  I took her out to my aunt's today, so she could look at it, and my aunt thinks she'll be fine - and not have to go through everything she did last time.  WHEW.

Right now, I'm working on a project that needs to be completed by the end of the month, for a quilt-a-long that starts in September - so fun!  I hope you stay tuned for that.  I'm trying to get it done as soon as possible, in case we do move...not only would this new house require some work, but also the house we own now, as we'll be selling it.

Every time I think of all the work, I need another nap.

Fortunately, there's a new super food on the market.

I might be able to get through anything with that for breakfast.  (Yes, they're delicious!)

I'm also trying to finish stitching my postcard for June, as I'm sure May will fly by.  I spent a couple of days last week shopping with my son, he needed a suit for a wedding this past weekend.  May I say I LOVE shopping with boys?  No lingering, no drama, just "yes it fits, let's pay and go".  I can't believe I didn't get a picture of him in it!!

I'll try to get around to visit you all this week, although it looks like another busy one...so no promises.  But I miss you all like crazy and am dying to see what you're working on!  Don't finish too many things or I'll never catch up, lol!
