God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
---Muhammad Ali

"We are driven to create at this deep wordless level of the soul because we are all fashioned in the image of a God who is an Artist." - Michael Card, Scribbling in the Sand.

Wow busy day. I had trouble getting to sleep last night so got a late start this morning. Didn't get up to mom's till after 10 a.m. We went to Parkersburg and looked at wallpaper and stopped by Crafts 2000. Mom needed yarn for an afghan and I picked up 2 more of the plastic containers I use for embellishments I wanted one for my bling bazzill and also the scalloped Bazzill. I was also out of room in my metal container so I'll divide it up so that it will stay closed.

After we got home I helped mom price the wallpaper she liked on line and then came home and took clothes off the line and also striped and washed my bed.

Since about 7:00 I've been sorting my scrap book paper. I had such a mess. I sorted out all of my patterned paper in a new system. I kept together paper like a complete line of Basic Grey but if I was down to say 2 pieces of BG I sorted it into it's predominant color. That way if I need say a piece of yellow patterned paper I'll just be able to go to that cropper. I also got all of the scraps out from the full sheets of paper. I've got 4 cropper hoppers full of scraps I am going to sort it by color and then I'm going to make sure they are at least 3 x 3 inch squares, if they aren't they are going in the trash.

I need to get a handle on the mess of my scrap room. I've not scrapped in 2 weeks and I'm going into withdrawl or I should say not my normal type of scrapping! I have not been happy with anything I've done lately either. I so need to get out of this funk. I'm going to see a friend the end of September and doing a crop to support Breast Cancer cure. I'm hoping it gets me out of the funk.

Otherwise I need to just hang it up.

I miss being with Mikaela so much! After spending a week and a 1/2 with her I feel like a piece of me is missing. I'm going to have to drive up one day this week. I just can't take it :)

Well I better get off of here and finish sorting the paper. I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Love and Hugs to all,
