Can you have too much bling, or too many kind deeds - I think not







The colors for this card came to me while I was sleeping and 
just starting to wake up. 
I can't help it if I am so obsessed with stamping, it is a big part of my life.
I'm addicted and I really don't want a cure. YET

Stamping brings me a lot of joy
and I have been trying each day to give a card away.
I hope my cards bring a smile to the faces of the friends I give them too.


The weather is finally cooling down in the mornings here in 
Southern Nevada
So I have spent a bit of time over the last couple mornings
getting rid of the crab grass in our flower garden.

(My guess is the name crab grass must have come from the first person 
who tried to pull it and it made them "crabby" because crab grass 
is stubborn and thick!)



BEFORE

I knew I had to get rid of the weeds roots if I want my weeding to last.
 I got out the shovel and dug it up one square foot at a time.
I'm only about 2/3rds the way done but it's already looking much better.

This garden will always have fond memories for me
it's where our children got their photos taken the fist of every school year.


A FEW DAYS PROGRESS

While weeding I was thinking about the crab grass in my life
how some things can be allowed to grow into such an addiction 
and may crowd out some of the good things 
we should be making time for.

~ moderation in all things ~

As I read my scriptures and pray each day, I try and think about the things 
I should or could be doing to serve my family and neighbors.

While Mark and the boys were in Utah I decided 
to do something nice for each of them
I cleaned both the boys rooms and washed all the 
clothes they had left on the floor.

I left big piles of clean clothes on their beds for when they returned.

I also took the time to clean out Marks car since he had taken mine to Utah.

It's amazing what things we neglect 
when we are trying to make a living, 
and gain an education.



May each of us take a look at our lives
and get rid of the crab grass
and spend a little extra effort doing things that 
may bless our lives and the lives of others. 


AFTER A WEEKOF PROGRESS

Now it's time to start planting good things 
where the bad things were
to keep the crab grass from coming back again.


After all the new plants are in 


If sure feels good to see all this progress!
