Blog Surfing And Rambling

 Think the song of the Beach Boys " Surfin USA." This is what came to my mind this morning as I was SURFIN blogs, I though Bobbi Jo's a sufin the internet for some fun blogs. Okay so as I am surfin on my swivel desk chair swinging back and forth at a slow constant beat I found this blog by Debbie of Ribbonwood Cottage and Count Your FarmHouse Blessings  had started a cross stitch project of the daily blessing that she had followed from Amy's blog Counting My Blessings . I am way late finding this but these two lovely ladies and their blogs have inspired me to do this in my spare time.This is a cross stitch project that you make a sampler of the daily or I guess it could be the weekly blessings that are in your life. I love this idea. I do have some material to do it but I am not sure of how big I want to make it so I will be figuring this out then getting the material on to work on this project. I have done many cross stitch projects in the past and love to do it, other than my eyes are the over 40 and the eyesight isn't the greatest in the world. he he
 I have also started working on a few Christmas sewing projects. I will be sharing more later when I get a little more accomplished.
 Enjoyed this morning talking with my beautiful oldest daughter, Coco for an hour and 20 minutes on the phone. Good thing it is free minutes, OOPS! Time fly's by when you are having fun. I love to hear the sweet little grand babies in the back ground makes me feel so blessed to have such a wonderful family that I love so much.
 Later today Faith, Gabby and I are going to work on vision boards. They have already started on drawing some pictures for theirs. I had on that I made when I was in massage school and it truly did help me to focus on my goals. If the girls are alright with me taking pictures of theirs I will share them with you.
 Some more of my rambling would be that my squash plants have been killed due to squash bugs! Warning If you are a little like me and don't like bugs don't look at the link!!!!!!!!  The four yellow squash (croak neck or summer squash) and my zucchini plants were all infected with these creepy little creatures and sucked the life out of them. The last 2 mornings I have been spraying the remainder of  the plants with soapy water to kill off all of the little pests. I was so mad! Anyway, I am dealing with this and working on the winter garden planting plan. We have to wait till nights are a little cooler here in Queen Creek, Arizona to put in plants. The heat is so nasty hot during the day and the evenings aren't much cooler so just waiting with big hopes of growing  all the yummy things that I can this year. 
 So this is how my day is going having a good one and keeping busy. 
 I wanted to share a picture of some flowers that Hubs had on my desk when I got home. He knows how much I love flowers so I am frequented with flowers of all colors and varieties.  

 I just love the brightness of the colors! 
 Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Darn squash bugs! They got to my squash the last two years. Fingers crossed we'll make it through this year without them.

Your flowers are so beautiful! I love the idea of blessings done with cross stitch. I've been making a list of blessings occasionally on my blog...for over a year now. Haven't quite made it to a thousand, which is my goal, but I'm pretty close. :) blessings, marlene
