PRAYERS UP!

Prayers for Carter
 
I spoke to soon.  I think most of it was wishful thinking.
Carters surgery is scheduled for
June 17th, where the surgeon will remove a
small portion of his skull and chiari  decompression.
 
Please include his mommy Jennifer in your prayers
Jennifer said to thank you all, the out poring of prayers and concerns has really spoke to her heart about how good people are.

NO NEWS ON CARTER

No NEWS!

I have found I was waiting for news on Carter before I posted.  Shame on me.
At this time there has been no cause found and Carter continues to be a happy boy. I am thinking, at this point, they will never know.

I have also been so busy, with the quilt process.
I set a goal for myself, to get both quilts to Patty, my lady with the long arm.  at the same time.

So here is where I am at this point.

Chloe's quilt.  I need to get the binding on, pick a backing and it is ready.

One block from Zoe's quilt.
All the blocks on Zoe's quilt are different, so we will see how that goes.

As soon as I am ready, I will pick the binding and backing for this quilt, then off they go. 
So, that is where I am right now. I will do better at keeping my postings.

UPDATE

Nothing yet

I wanted to give you all an update on Carter.
Also, to thank you for your prayers.

No findings so far.
I am wondering if they will ever find the cause.
The good is, the bad things have been ruled out.

Carter is such a trooper


Thank you so much for your prayers
Carter can use a few more as he goes
through this.

ASKING FOR PRAYERS

Carter needs prayer

I am asking for prayers for my sweet, sweet
Great grandson Carter.

Carter started having seizures with
no known cause.  They are looking for
an answer, so as he meets with the
neurosurgeon, I ask that you please keep
Carter in your prayers.


Thank you

MY MAINSTAY BOOKS

BIBLE FIRST
Then the two books that have become my constant companions  are:
This is a recent gift from a friend.
I have noticed that the same statements
read at different parts of the day
have completely different meanings. 

The next book, was one recommended by
the speech therapist.
It has answered so many questions for me.
 Brain injury does not always come
from a stroke. It can come from any
head injury.
Steve:
The point that he is right now, he 
is not helping himself. If he learned
any words, it is "I can't".
Most of the time he will not try.  Even meds 
do not seem to help. I believe it to be
 mind over matter. You have to believe you can.
I try to be positive and encouraging which
is all I can do.

My garden.

Look what I found at an amazing price:

Hard to tell from the picture but
it is huge.  This will be the needed focal point
for the shade garden.
I was thinking statue or bird bath then
I came upon this. Next step, plant 
something in it!!

Plus:
I snagged a 6x8 carpet! it fits my porch/deck/   

Need to do some work but
it's a start.
I wish I could wish the green away.

I AM BLESSED AND THANK YOU

So Blessed

Thank you all.  I am so grateful for the suggestions of ways to help Steve.   I am researching many of them.  

I also know, I am blessed in having a home. Yes, it was hard leaving my little brick house.  In a way, this move
really requires me to stay busy.
Drusilla, is not crazy about it.  She can not come and go as she pleases but must be trained to a leash!  
Won't that be fun!!

Now, the yard!  
My box wood shrub continues to get yellow tips.
I have fertilized, and watered, maybe it just needs more time. I might just dig up the two troubled ones and plant new ones.

The large rocks and little rocks around it
are now gone.

Would love a suggestion.

START IN THE FRONT

Welcome

I want to start in the front entrance, so my little home will be welcoming to guests.
Also will welcome me home.
To do that I called in some help. 

Where to even start?

The previous owner did not have a good idea here.
The landscape rocks, or what ever they are called, were pushing the boarder out into the walk way.
This, was on both sides of the walk.

Not going to be fun!  

There were several wheelbarrow loads full that went to the back of the property.
Why would anyone think this was nice?

I have saved this pile of rocks
at least so far. There are some very pretty rocks.
Maybe some sort of rock garden?
Just not sure yet.

As we dug into the mess, we found a layer of landscape cloth, then the small rocks, then the larger rocks.
It is no wonder the plants were dying.
I am hoping I can now water and feed
the shrubs and have them grow. 

 Suggestions about paint color are welcome. 
Also Angela, I am thinking positive.
Won't that hedge of box wood be beautiful??
