iPod update

I have posted this using my iPod touch. Just experimenting for future possibilities.

Memories Made

We had "some" of our family home for Easter and had a great time. We also got a lot done. Check out Becky's blog here "A Woman with Many Hats" and see her version of the time spent here. Thanks guys for making it special for us.

Final Class

We had the final class with this FPU group. 
The time seemed short, 13 weeks, but it was great!
So keep up the great work team!

Don't send me to Africa

Years and years ago, had to have been around 1981, a young couple (I have totally forgotten their names, but I'm sure that they would remember this) sang this song to Peter and I when we were pondering pastoring a church in Alberta. I had mentioned at the time, that I would likely never go to Africa, and they got this song and sang it at a church function for us.
I was looking through our stuff sorting what to keep, sell, give away, or garbage and found the paper with the lyrics on it and the letters SWB. I went looking on the net to find it and found this. Hope you enjoy it.

One More Sleeping Bag

I made this years ago, like before 1987. It has lost a few squares.

So I replaced them and made the quilt into a sleeping bag.
Now I'm done with that!

Where Is Spring?

Peter took this on Tues.

Thurs. we started a weekend Garage Sale, this morning we woke to this!
The yard looks so much cleaner than it did yesterday!
I don't know what we will make today!
You can see where the sign WAS on the lawn.

Sleeping Bag Number 1

My Mom made this quilt.

It needed some TLC!

She never made this one though.

I added a very long zipper.

Then added the two quilts together.

Using stick pins, unlike the nice Quilting pins my sister has!

Sewed the two together and made a sleeping bag.
This is one of the things I did today! The others things I didn't take pictures of. 
So what are they: We went for a walk and picked bottles - made quite a bit too! 
Talked to my daughter, and my daughter-in-laws and to Kirk 
and even got to say hi to some grandchildren. 
I also got Kirk to help me set up my computers to transfer files.
Talked to two of my sisters.

I've Been Busy

Last week was not only the first week with no job to go to, but a very busy one! That was probably a good thing. We listed our garage sale and then could only do it for one day. Then we went to the funeral.
It was good to go, and also good to visit with family again. Who knows, it will likely be the last time we see some of them until we get back from Rwanda. I was able to pick up two long zippers from Lloydminster. That was really good! Now I have a job to make two quilts into sleeping bags. We have more sorting to do and we will be having a three day garage sale this weekend.

Please Remember Rwanda

April is likely the most difficult month in Rwanda. This is the month where they will remember the Genocide of 1994.   On April the 7th 1994, the Rwandan genocide began, and over the next 100 days as many as one million people lost their lives. Please remember the nation of Rwanda this month and keep them in your prayers. I have read these books on the genocide, all very good reads:

I Lost My Sister-In-Love Today

My sister-in-law had been fighting for her health for a long time now.
Now, she isn't in pain any more!
We love you Gwen, we will miss you a lot!

Tooth Problems

It didn't take too long for the Dentist to extract it.

Yep that's the one!
We were driving around and I'm sure people thought I was a smoker with the gauze in my mouth.

Bible Reading

Okay, so it's not exactly Bible Reading so much as it is Bible Listening. I've been listening to DAILY AUDIO BIBLE a podcast that I found in the iTunes Store. I've been enjoying it and it's nice to have. Check it out, you might like it.

Blogging

I have been blogging now for 2 years! Wow, it doesn't seem that long!

Farewell Potluck, a set on Flickr.
Tonight NCEM had a potluck for us. Thanks everyone for the great food and fellowship. We have made many life long friends, and will be keeping in touch.

Blogger Space is small!

Well, to small for me, and my pictures anyway. So thankfully for family (Thanks to Kirk and LaDonna) I can once again put my pictures on my Blogspot without paying them any money!
Laaaaaaa! (In a singing type voice). Laaaaaa! again!
So that last post was a demonstration of using Flickr with my blog.
I am going to have a good day now!
