"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"!

the lure of the ocean








I'm off for a much anticipated weekend at the beautiful Oregon coast.  Most of my bests will be with me and how wonderful is that?  Of course my favorite people in all the world will be here holding down the home front so that I can go galavanting for which I am truly grateful!  I've packed this cute little free pattern along with some scrap yarn.  I'm throwing in some muslin, embroidery floss and hoop.. and of course I will have my Bible and my camera..  Deep breathed sigh.. eyes closed.. smile..  See you Monday!

Blessings, Debbie

  5. I long for one of these sorts of weekends.

    You know what it would be for me? A day or two just to "unwind" and figure out what I need to/want to do...and then as many days to "get er done".

    Enjoy!
    Blessings back at you.

  17. I loved seeing the nooks and crannies of this room. I'd like to sit in that chair by the window and embroider. Wishing you a lovely time by the sea. I hope it's sunny.

  18. Debbie,

    Oregon coast...sounds so beautiful!

    I wanted to let you know the book on Church History is a very enjoyable (easy) read. I did not mean to imply is was not. Like all history books it is full of dates and names, therefore, I find it helpful to pick up and read in small doses from time to time.

    Tee Hee...
