I hope you are having a nice Easter weekend or Passover week doing what you and your family enjoy.

It has been cold and rainy here in SC. My daughter, Mandy is here for a few days with her foster dog, Lolly that I mentioned a few weeks ago. Lolly is having surgery on Tuesday to fix her leg. You can read her story here.

We are just hanging out. I made a few family favorite recipes to enjoy over the weekend and dinner tonight we are making this recipe for dessert.

Something to Think About

Atomic habits and simple living.

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. – Les Brown

Keeping the quote above in mind, I always wanted to make a patchwork quilt using all my favorite colors and have put it off for years. I just started it – a simple one. What have you always wanted to do – big or small? Why not start doing it now.

  1. What I have wanted to do:
    I want to make a coverlet for my bed that has a hand drawn seashell on the top of the cover. I am still figuring if the seashell shoud be painted or embroidered.

      Hi Pam – What you are envisioning sounds beautiful. If you have the embroidery skills, I think it would look amazing. Enjoy the process.

  2. That’s wonderful that you’re learning to quilt…I’ve seen so many beautiful works of art. My SIL has been quilting for many years and I’m so impressed with her eye for color and pattern 💜
    My husband and I love to get out and walk/run with our dogs. This month we started a challenge to walk/run 100 miles in 30 days. It’s a fun thing to do together and great to have a goal!! We are getting close to halfway and feeling good!!🏃‍♂️

      Hi Lynn- Having a dog that needs to be walked is one of the many benefits of dog ownership. Good for their health and yours. Enjoy your challenge – I am sure you will excel and surpass your goal once you get going and start feeling the positive benefits. :-)

  3. As a long time quilter, I think choosing a Donna Jordan (Jordan’s Fabrics) pattern/video is a great choice for a beginner. Her videos are informative, easy to follow, and should give you great results, good luck!

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Thanks Martha – I am eager to get started on the quilt and of course will post about it once I get it done.

  4. Happy Easter to Ed, Diane and family. Enjoy your day – for a change, we are having a beautiful day!

    Hi Diane. Happy Easter to you and your family! Thank you for all the lovely sights you send along.

    I must say that I have a “thing” for seeing plates and frames on a wall. Things that are simple can be the most enjoyable, whether it be on a wall or table, a gathering of a friend or friends, displayed art, etc.

    Wishing you happiness and good health always!

  6. thank you for a thoughtful mix of interesting reads and inspiration. What have I always wanted to do? Write a book. And I have. And rewritten and rewritten. But I’m learning more and more as I go. Someday it will either be accepted for publishing or I’ll self publish. But I will accomplish my goal. I started working on it during Covid quarantine.

    As much as I’ve always loved reading, I now have so much more respect for all the work that goes into writing a book.

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Patricia – Have you had any editors read your book to give you suggestions or friends or family? Keep at it if you are submitted it to agents and publishers. Do you read the blog, City Farmhouse by Jen O’Brien? https://cityfarmhouse.com/author-page. She has written two and is still waiting to get them published. Like you, she keeps at it and stays positive. I hope you get yours published.

  7. Love the mix of plates on a wall!

      Hi Alison – We created a mixed plate wall in my daughter, Mandy’s kitchen with plates from Ed’s mom. It came out great. Did you have a fun day yesterday at The Master’s?
