This and That

I thought I would share a little of this and that today. Just some thoughts, questions, and other random stuff.

Business has picked up lately (Praise God) so I've been a bit busy and haven't had much time for posting. But I have been enjoying creating new blog designs and getting better acquainted with some bloggy friends.

I really need to give my Graphics Blog a bit of a face lift. It's looking pretty shabby these days, and I don't mean that in a good way. If you have any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear them.

I seem to have a serious case of writers block that I'm having a hard time getting over. Any suggestions? What do you do when you have writers block?

Just over a week ago I noticed that my guestbook had been signed by 99 guests so I thought I would do something for the 100th guest. The next day my bloggy friend Greg from Greg's General Store came along and left a message that said he thought it was time he signed my guestbook. Timing is everything Greg. It also just happened to be his birthday. So Greg, I will be sending you a little something. I do emphasize the word *little* so don't get too excited. :)

Here are a few photos of the girls playing bubbles. We got some of the big bubble wands and the girls enjoyed some time decorating the air.

Look at this little goofball. She found a pair of warm gloves and fell asleep with them on. Why she wanted to wear them in this heat is beyond me.

My friend Angela came over the other day with her kids and one of their friends. The boys got excited when they saw the hula-hoop. Boys are funny little creatures. LOL.
This is Alex, Angela's son.

Gunner, Alex's friend.

Sarah, Angela's daughter.

That's it for now. Have a great day!


A girl needs to be so lost in God, that the guy is going to have to seek HIM to find her!

It's that red car in the picture isn't it. You wonderful person. That is what you meant by little isn't it. Its a little red car like I always wanted. How did you know? :)

Just kidding. Having you as a friend is a present worth keeping. I really appreciate all your kind words of encourragement. Thank you so much for visiting my web page too. I agree that having a way with plants is my gift from God and I plan on using that gift to the fullest.

What great and fun photos!! Thanks for sharing them with us Edie. I so love you girl!!!

I have no tips for you on the blog as I think it looks great. I will pray for God to give you something great to do and I know he will!!

As for writer's block. Let me know whatever tips you get. I thought with the summer I'd have a good focus to write. It started out that way but I've been on the go visiting and fellowship and family stuff etc so I think the fall will find me more focused :)

Love ya!

Congrats to Greg!

Edie, I just love to get to know you better. Thanks for sharing your life and photos with your blogging buds.

Sometimes I've gone through times when I didn't know what to write. There are so many memes to participate in and I've done that and met new blogging friends. And very quickly, I find I have lots of things to write again.

I also love to write about what God is teaching me in each season on my life. Often others can relate and I always love to get a good discussion going.

Again, I want to thank you for my fabulous blog makeover. I simply LOVE it; there's nothing I would change. You captured me perfectly. Thank you for praying about the design and allowing God to use you in such a wonderful blessing. And of course, Lisa Shaw too. I love you two.

That Greg is special....we all know that. A little from Edie is a big blessing!

Way cute, the granddaughter conked out on the couch. You must be way too much f-u-n!!! :-)

Thanks for posting the pictures! So glad that business continues to keep you busy. I suspect that being busy for others makes it harder for other parts of your brain--like writing posts--to work as effectively. (Perfectly OK! CJ has a post about writer's block right now, as a matter of fact.)

Those Wal-Mart bubble wands make some amazing bubbles--and bubbles love hot weather. That's what my nephew had at the beach that covered our volleyball game.

You sound good; I'm glad you are well!

So glad to see you posting again and sharing your photos of the girls with us.

Isn't God good. He said He would take care of you and He is keeping His promise.

By the way if you would like to see our car it's in the video "My Family" on the left sidebar. Too bad I can't drive anymore.

Your Graphics Blog looks great. If your really wanting to change I'm sure God will help you with it as He's helped you with all of us. Maybe change the white to a color? Just a thought.
Luv u,

Hey Edie!

Writer's block? What do you mean? This does not seem like writer's block to me. It's great!

How much fun are grandyoungins!! love all the photos and especially the hula hoop one. Brings back memories of me trying to hula hoop. Notice the word TRYING. Never could get that thing to swirl around me..

Christy said...

My son does the same thing. Will find a pair of his gloves and wear them around the house. He will even venture outside. Crazy!


Oh - those Bubbles - now that should inspire some good writing!
Hum?!?!?! BUBBLES!

Fun post!
