Pansies are for Thoughts

And a few thoughts going out for a good day and pleasant weekend.  We started the day with thunder and heavy rains, at least I don't have to water the tomato plants today.  They got their fair share and will again later today if the weatherman is correct.

Our son left on Tuesday, to the other side of the country, preparing now to go overseas the beginning of next week.  Quiet has become a close friend at the moment.  Quietly in the evenings I am stitching, cross stitching.  Preparing some autumnal designs for display this coming Fall.  Helps to clear the mind and relax.  Also looking for some cute and sweet holiday designs and finishing techniques.  I want a few pillows of the larger type designs and ornaments for the smaller.  Right now I am attracted to the "smalls".  They are quite lovely.

I'm still finding problems with blogger so between that and my quieting, blogging has been cut down quite a bit.  Hope to resume more frequency shortly.

Blessings to your weekend. 


  1. nice to hear from you again...Welcome back.......

  2. Nice to see your post, Gloria. Hope you are having a day filled with many blessings. :) As for Blogger, I've been having troubles with it for quite a while too. Somewhere I read about using Windows Live Writer and have used it on my last few blog posts. I think I am going to like it. Blogger has been such a pain lately with the pics showing up out of order or uploading multiple times. Being that I am on limited bandwidth, that is not a good thing. Windows Live Writer lets you make your post, and make sure all is well with it, before you post it to Blogger.

    Tonight I'll be hanging out with Clayton and Adelyn for a bit while their parents do their own thing. :)

  3. Thinking of you at this time i can imagine how you are feeling. But sewing is such a relaxing thing and i agree it really does quite the mind. Take lots of care and enjoy your projects, dee x

  4. Hi Glor, it's nice to hear from you. I'm sure you spent wonderful quality time with your son. Moments of quiet are always a good thing and crocheting or cross-stitching is quite soothing for the soul. Enjoy! Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

  5. Enjoy your quiet times my friend!

    Big hugs,

  6. Missed your postings, but totally understand needing to spend some quiet time......kind of been doing that a little myself. So glad to see you are stitching (sorry about getting you pulled back into that :)) What's new on your hook? I've been on the dark side lately (knitting) but still working on the crochet daisy afghan from time to time.

    Wishing you a wonderful day and blessings to you and yours always. :)

  7. That's great to see you again! I do hope you had a lovely time...
    Take care and have a happy day to you! xoxo
