First off, I'd like to thank CeCe for writing me such a nice, sweet email wanting to make sure I was doing okay. She said she missed my blog posts, and made me feel special! Thank you, CeCe!!
Now, let me tell you a little bit about what I have been up to these days. Forgive me if I work backwards, it is just easier for me to remember that way. (Yes, I'm weird, I know this.)
Since we have been having such beautiful mornings, we have been sitting out on the porch watching all the barn swallows play. We have been overrun by them, and plan on knocking their nests down as soon as all their babies fly off. They are keeping my hummingbirds away, and I don't like that.
Yesterday, McD and I had a date. I don't even know how long it has been since we've had a date, but we went to see The Lone Ranger and had a great time!
Saturday, July 6, we stepped out of the box. I think I have stated that we are members of the Church of Christ, and have been all our lives. This weekend, we attended Lifechurch in Oklahoma City. I loved it! I have attended Women of Faith, so it wasn't really too far out of the box for me but it was for McD. Lifechurch is having their annual series, At the Movies where they pick a few movies and relate parts of them to the Bible. It is really interesting, and it makes you think. We are even going back next Saturday. (Let me know if you are going. We are going to the Edmond campus next Saturday.)
To celebrate Independence Day, we went to our good friends house. You might know them, MM & Ree. We try to get there early to help out, but this time McD was helping with the sewing room so we didn't get there near as early as we wanted. Sorry, Ladd, it was my fault!
Previous to that I cannot put dates to things, they just kind of blend together.
McD helped me get all of the work out equipment out of the house, and helped me set up my new office/craft room. Now I have a place to leave my new sewing machine out, my projects half done out on the table, and a place to write (more on that in a bit).
We went to Red River, NM for the Annual Red River Family Encampment. It is a five-day Church of Christ family church camp of sorts. This was my second year to attend, and McD's first. We took Granny along with us, and we were able to run over to Taos and see our oldest, Jer. Good times!! I would encourage anyone I know to go.
I mentioned that I got a new sewing machine. In the next few days, I will show you photos of the projects we have made. I say we, because my friend Michelle and I have been working together on several projects. I can't wait to get started on my next project.
I've been reading, quite a bit, and tomorrow I will have a book review up for a really good, thought provoking book.
And lastly, I haven't wanted to put this out in the universe for everyone to know because well, then everyone would know. Even now, I am sitting here questioning myself. Do I really want to put this out there? Do I really want people to know? What if I fail? I would be so embarrassed. Here's the deal, I'm just gonna say it...
I'm writing a book.
There, I said it. I'm having a hard time writing these days though, and I thought if I put it out there I might actually work on it more. Because you guys knowing, might make me get back to it. Make sense? So feel free to hold me accountable.
Sigh! That is a weight off my chest.
Well, thanks for listening. I wanted to fill you in before I actually started back with book reviews, PinTested, and my daily life.
Feel free to say hi! I am going to try to start replying to all comments. (That's something I got away from for some unknown reason.)
Lots of Love!!
