It is May!!! this is a very exciting thing, Softball has started.. I have been able to walk... two days in a row and gardening... so busy pulling weeds and mowing the grass.. and sewing... I feel that a large part of my day  is spent sewing. I hope to be done with all of these extra projects soon so that I may work on some stuff just for my family. Also Jodi is in a play this weekend and Jacob has been practicing for the talent show contest... ... I have been extremely busy this last week. So busy that I couldn't even find time to write something on my post but I must get back to this as I have found this to be great for my soul..

The little boys and I are going to try and memorize 1 bible verse a week. This weeks verse is Isaiah 9:6 "For unto us a  child is born, Unto us a son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. This sounds easier than it is, as I don't find that I am all that engaging... It is something I have to work at as I would often times rather be stuck in a book or a project and to come out of my shell isn't always that easy, but that is a very selfish thing on my part and I must work hard to not hold myself so close as to hold others out...

On the book front I just finished a book called The Wolf Gift... by Anne Rice. It wasn't that good.. it was throuoghly perposterous and not that enjoyable. I made myself read the whole thing and when I was done I was like why?   So now I am reading the Hunger Games.. This is a much more engaging book that I am enjoying and having no trouble sitting down and making a huge amount of progress on. I am liking it so much that I have already put my name on the book two...Catching Fire. Also I am reading a gardening book that is enjoyable.. It is called Quarter Acre garden... How I kept the Patio, Lost the Lawn and Fed my Family for a Year! The title made me laugh and it also is something I strive for so I am enjoying it.... I love my library.. they have a little bit of something for everyone. I actually think it is the most happening place in town.

On the quilt front.. I have finished my whole cloth quilt and I gave it to my secret sister. It was great to be able to finish a project and I have enjoyed the whole process so much that I am going to make a second one that I will get to keep. I also enjoyed making the label based on a tutorial by the Fresh of the Spool blog. Thank you for your great tutorial and the great idea. I also will be busy working on Four-H quilts and so nothing of my own will get finished, but there are only so many hours in a day and my babies are more important than what I make.
