You know this life is so hard mentally.  I have lived all my life trying to do what is right.  But seems that on every turn I just get shot down.  My mom and sister used to always put me down.  I do not even think they even knew that they were doing it?  Or maybe I deserved it.  I am 67 years old and I am just tired of trying to do what everyone wants me to do.  I was born into the  LDS religion and I have never felt like it was the right religion for me.  I was always expected to do all these jobs in the church and I thought that was what God wanted me to do.  But I felt like they were taking over my life.  I want to make my own decisions about life.  At this stage of my life I just want to live a very simple life with simple things.  I do not really need people just my family.  Why is it that I can always read between the lines?  People say one thing but I interpret it as they want me to do something for them.  Is that wrong?  I think I should just act stupid and ignore my interpretation.  It is all mental.  I think way too much.  I am not going to do family search anymore because it seems like I am always doing something wrong and someone tells me about it.  However when I get into the records I find things that are wrong and I try to correct them.  the only person that I care about pleasing is God.

Well it has been a few days.  I have been busy worrying about two of my great grandsons.  They have been through hell and now are living with their mother however she needs to get her act together.  I feel that they are very damaged but hopefully with time and counseling they could come out of it.  I have tried everything with my granddaughter but she keep falling into the same pile of stupid people,  I do not understand, she was raised so different.  Are stupid genes hereditary? Because I know her father come from a gene pool of stupids.  She was a whoops child of my oldest daughter.  Oh well I will turn it over to God and do my best to help.  The last few days have been quite warm but not as warm as before.  thank goodness.  I have been working on another quilt.  It is another cross stitch quilt.  I have decided to make a quilt journal.  Or maybe just a project journal.  who knows.  Well better get on with it.  Tomorrow is coming soon.

Whew what a week!.  Mr and I went on a little trip Monday and Tuesday then Wednesday was spent watching out for fires in our back yard as all our neighbors were shooting of fire works.  Tug does not like Fire works so he was all nervous and that was another story.  Good day though no fires!  We worry every year as our back pasture gets really dry. 

This is how I get my exercise.  I go up and down these stairs at least 20 times a day.  That is the bad thing about a two story house.  The funny thing is Tug (who is at the top of the stairs) wont go down these stairs but he will go down our back stairs.  Maybe they are too slick for him.  Who knows?
 These are pictures of my sewing room.  Messy I know.  Do you think I have some sewing todo?  But you know it is a little organized.  I just have a lot to do. 
Oh well I would rather be busy than idle.

Good Start to Saturday

Well If finally did it! The snowman quilt top is done.  It will make a cute snuggle quilt for someone.

 
Now to decide what color for the backing.  Decisions Decisions.
Tug my Pom buddy is back at his old tricks.  He likes to play like the pine cones are balls, however they make him cough so I have to keep them pickede up.  With the wind we have had lately that has become another chore.  Oh well.
Well this is enough for today I have to go get my meds from the pharmacy and run an errance for a friend.  
Hope to get more sewing done today.

whew another busy day.

Well just got back from driving down to visit my sister,  She is fine just so you know.  We live about 85 miles apart and you would think that we would get together oftener.  The weather here is so hot and we have wild fires all around us.  I am going to post my sewing room mess later.  I cannot believe all the sewing I have to get done.  I think I could hide in there for a week and never be missed.  Oh I take that back someone would miss me around eating time.  I am looking for some easy and fast recipes if anyone has any please lead me to them.  Well see ya later today.

New day.  Just got back from trying out the New IHOP.  Mr of course had to complain about something but his coffee wasn't it this time.  It is nice to finally have a good place to go to have a good breakfast.    Got lots to do today.  Cleaning, mowing and sewing.  I have quilt to bind, one to finish and some tea towels to put tops on.  Who says retirement is boring.  My daughter and granddaughter went to go to the movie last night cause it was $5 night.  Lesson learned.  Everyone else though the same thing.  The movie we wanted to watch was sold out.  So we ended up going to get a snow cone and coming home.  Good times and lessons learned.  Here are a few of my flowers in my yard.  Nothing is doing very good this year as it is has been so hot here. 

You know this life is so hard mentally.  I have lived all my life trying to do what is right.  But seems that on every turn I just get shot ...
