Oh well, I will just give you the highlights so I can try and keep the post length under control.
This year we were actually able to enjoy some of Paul's grapes that he has been growing. Last year the animals ate all the grapes before they were ripe enough for us to enjoy.
We have had several missions teams come and help us pass out flyers for our VBS week. They have worked hard and thousands of flyers have been distributed.
Kathy and I have been doing Weight Watchers for the past several weeks and we had gotten to a point that we needed to go through our clothes. We looked at each piece of clothing in our closet and got rid of anything that was too big. Three big garbage bags later we were done. We donated them to Salvation Army so hopefully someone else will be greatly blessed with these clothes.
I was feeling very overwhelmed with our craft room. Things were just not organized and I never felt like I could get control of it. So one day Kathy was kind enough to help me and we finally got it all put away and cleaned up.
Kathy and I made a sampling of Christmas cards to see if we could get any large companies to buy build Christmas cards for them to send to their customers. We haven't heard back yet if they are interested or not, but please pray if it's the Lord's will that we may get at least one company to buy Christmas cards from us.
Roz and Rachel came out to visit us and it's a good thing the craft room was clean because we spent lots of time in their creating cards.
This was the first card I received in the mail for my birthday this year.
We went walking at the park near our house and there were two people out flying kites. They were very unique kites. You can't see it real well in this picture but the one was red shorts with white legs coming out of the shorts and the other kite was an octopus.
Second birthday card I received... this one is from my friend who lives in the neighborhood across the street from us. She and I get together to stamp whenever we can fit it into our schedules.
The past four weeks I have done quite a bit of cat sitting which is wonderful because this family lives 1.5 miles away from me so when I cat sit for them I walk to their house which gets me outside walking. Every day I cat sit I walk 3 miles :-)
Rosalyn shared a Weight Watchers recipe with us... Angel Food Cake Pineapple Cupcakes.... they were delicious and super easy to make.
This is a sampling of cards Kathy and I have made in the past few weeks. Notice some of them are in Spanish. I am branching out and making Spanish cards also. I haven't posted any Spanish ones in my Etsy store yet but I plan to in the near future.
I flew to New Mexico for a missions trip with the Good Goers organization.
We stayed at this church and worked with the Pastor to help minister to a group of 5 siblings who needed to be shown God's love. You can read more about my trip here and here.
Kathy ordered some stamping supplies and when they were delivered it was like Christmas for me :-) I got all the items unpacked, organized and put away in the craft room.
I'm dog sitting this precious dog again. He is so well behaved it just amazes me.
OK you are now officially up to date with everything going on here...I hope the rest of this year I can do better with posting my Project 365 on a more timely manner.
Have a blessed rest of your week!
