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.

Paper and elements allJennifer Balding/Scraps by Jenn Terms of UseFarm Fresh @ The Shaker BoxFont Times New Roman

I’ve been so bad about keeping my blog up to date! Don’t know why but I have been.

Summer has come to Ohio heat and lots of rain, humidity has been really high for days. Today it’s a little cooler but we have major thunder storms. We had one storm this morning that shook the building when it banged.

I have been doing some digital scrapping and no paper. Tonight I’ve got to go home and clean the bathroom and scoop the kitty litter. Tomorrow night is the living room and start the kitchen and then Wednesday I need to mop the kitchen floor. Thursday, M comes to stay with me till Sunday. I can’t wait to play with her for the end of the week. She’s growing so fast and she will take 2 or 3 steps and then decides she’s not moving fast enough and drops to her bottom and starts crawling.

On the weight front I’ve lost enough weight that I’ve went down a size in slacks. I’m finding it hard to believe but working on the Wii fit is the only thing I’ve done that is different. So I’ll credit it to the Fit! I didn’t know I would love to do step aerobics but boy do I, I think they are so much fun!

Well not much else going on but I’m trying to close my programs for the yr. I’ve got 3 balanced and 3 not finished so not doing to awfully bad. But, 2 of the three that aren’t finished are real pains. Typical year end and year opening stuff going on, the phones are so busy you have trouble doing anything else.

Well I better get off of here and get back to being busy. Just needed a short break to refocus. Some days when the phones are busy like this you need to step away for a few minutes and regroup.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy week.

God Bless,


Wooops almost forgot! You need to all get signed up at The Shaker Box we are having a big blow out crop the first 2 weeks of July to welcome the new owner!
