Stop Pinning and Just When I Think...
Y'all, I think I have a problem! I see so many things, on Pinterest, that I either want to make or do, but I never get around to the making and doing part! UGH! It is driving me nuts! I say, every morning, "I am NOT going to turn on that dang computer until I get something done!". Yeah right! I get my morning chores done and then sit down for just a minute and before I realize it, I am pinning away! Do you have this problem? Did you have this problem? How in the world do you "Stop Pinning & Start Making"???
On Saturday, my Mister and I, took the granddaughter to the "Black Buggy Day" over in Chouteau. I always enjoy seeing all the Amish folk in their plain but pretty attire. If I had my way, women would still dress like that but alas, I do not always get my way! Ha! The granddaughter
kept complimenting the ladies on their dresses, especially the ones who wore blue (her fav color) and their "hats". They were gracious enough to simply tell her thank you even though they are not supposed to try and be "pretty". Doing so is seen as vanity and pride which is against God. Try and explain that to a six year old who is used to complimenting women on their clothing, hair, jewelry, etc. Her mama is a hair stylist, her other grandma owns a boutique with all kinds of beautiful clothes and her great aunt makes jewelry! I just wasn't even going to try to teach her that the Amish girls aren't like us, in that way. That is a lesson for another time but she had a blast at the festival and that's what matters at six years old.
Just when I think summer is almost over, we get slammed with more hot weather! We've been enjoying low 90* days and cooler nights but, the weatherman said, the upcoming week is supposed to be back up into the high 90's with the heat index into the 105* - 110* range! Perfect! Not! I have several things I need to get done outside but I'm sure I will stay inside for the better part of the week. I'm sure ready to open the windows and doors, again! I'm not really going to complain, though, because before I know what happened, it will be winter and I will be hauling warm water, out to the animals, two or three times a day!
Well, I think it is time for me to finish this last set of boot cuffs and then hit the hay!
Grace & Peace,
