Another great Sunday.  Although I didn’t get my exercises in today like I should have.   I did come across some fun quotes today which I’m including here.

P and I got to have a little special time today.  We got a few things needed from Sams Club, then she picked pizza and a soda float for a treat. We met a nice gentleman while enjoying our treat.  He had been a history and political science professor.  Our conversation started over my two cute girls, and included family size, homeschooling, God, business, etc.  I put business cards in my purse after that conversation; since he asked for one and I didn’t have one with me! 

Christopher made THE best wings EVER.   I don’t care for wings usually  but these were AWESOME.  Sauce recipe came from a blog I love to follow. Honey Glaze for Chicken  We think it would be  a great glaze for salmon as well. My first attempt failed since I burnt the chicken by being impatient!  But I learned how to do it from this video:  Indirect Grilling a Whole Chicken


I do enjoy sewing, especially my days I call fun sewing. I have been so enjoying sewing with this elastic thread and have a ton of ideas rolling around in my head. A few dresses for the girls below. I’ve also had fun sewing matching tops for my nieces (including L.H. :-).  


I quite often think/pray while sewing. Today I had the thought/vision come my way of having bolts of fun fabrics for girls to come and choose what they like and designing a top/skirt for themselves.  I’ve gotten to do this with my girls and some friends as well.  I think there is something special for a girl when they get something customized to their choice.  It made me think of the 80’s movie “Pretty in Pink.”  (Which also lead me to thinking about all those great 80’s movies I watched, which weren’t really such a “great” roll model to be watching.) But I did love how that character took some dresses and created a cool prom dress  🙂

Methinks it is a token of healthy and gentle characteristics, when women of high thoughts and accomplishments love to sew; especially as they are never more at home with their own hearts than while so occupied.  ~Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Marble Faun, 1859
