Try It Out Tuesday

Be careful that no one fails to receive God's grace and begins to cause trouble among you. A person like that can ruin many of you. Hebrews 12:15
 Surfing the internet is one of my past times. On occasion I share with you what I find.

Just found this Praise Him Thank Him every day! There is so much to do and learn on the internet.

Looks like this is a blog geared towards fun projects to do and include your children or grandchildren. I definitely want to try this one out in the Fall! I don't have any large leaves available to me currently.


Do you get cravings? I sure do!

Happy wonder filled Tuesday!

Sunburned Sunday

Be angry, and do not sin. Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still. Psalms 4:4
I got sun burned yesterday on an otherwise mostly cloudy but very humid day here in Southern NH. I went to Saturday church yesterday, for three hours, which is held outdoors with limited shade. You stand mostly. I wasn't thinking and forgot to put on suntan lotion. By the time I got home I had the dry heaves and blood sugar problems. It was very high sugars for me at one point it was 214. I learned a lesson. Wear suntan lotion even when it is cloudy, bring my own water bottle or coffee when it is cooler out and lastly eat breakfast before I go. I normally don't have these problems. I need a cart and a seat.

I watched the Olympics last night. Men's and women's swimming events plus men's gymnastics. Go USA Go for the gold! I used to be very competitive swimming, diving, tennis. and gymnastics. Of course I was a teenager then. Now I am a much older woman who does good if she can keep up with a walking routine. I am seeing these lovely 66 or 67, 68 nice low temperatures in the mornings now. I will be taking advantage of them as soon as I recover from yesterday.

I have no set plans for today. Other than to recover. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate, eat well and rest. Slather on the healing lotion on my burned face chest shoulders and back.

My feel good Nana feelings are going away! I hope I get to see my grandsons soon not just in pictures. Although I am grateful for pictures. I want to do another scrapbook page of one or both of my grandsons. Maybe I should do a baby scrapbook page of my younger grandson whom is only two now. I haven't done one yet.

Super Duper Saturday

At my first defense, no one came to my support, but everyone deserted me. May it not be held against them. 2 Timothy 4:16

Yay it is cool 68 and not raining yet. I am supposed to go to a Saturday church event. Walking to get there. I am bringing my rain poncho just in case. Not much to do but that today and some household chores.

I watched on TV the opening ceremonies for the summer Olympic Games in London last night. It was a very nice show. I like summer sports more than winter well except for ice skating.

I have a messy desk and really need to organize it. Maybe I can at least get that done later on today. Laundry and dishes too.

I have a spark of energy to create so this is when I should be working on my grandsons scrapbooks. I have found some great supplies for scrap booking/card making on Ebay and Listia. If I could I would jump in a car to go to Michaels but I don't have a car. So I do most of my purchasing online. I almost have enough of a variety of supplies that I may be able to open my Etsy store again. This time offering supplies and tools. I am just not sure if I want to have the expense for so much work. I love what I am doing now. Making things and sharing them with my swap partners on www.swap-bot.com

My grandsons the other day at the beach in MA Lots of fun throwing rocks and sand!

I miss these guys so much. I hope and pray I see them soon.

Wow Wednesday Already

Even though as apostles of Christ we could have used our authority over you. But we were gentle with you, like a mother caring for her little children. 1 Thessalonians 2:7
Wow this week is moving right along. I must be staying busy and occupied. I have been I have plenty of links to share with you. The last two days have been windy and cooler some what. It is 75 degrees out at 1 PM EST I know because my front door is hollowing.

Oven baked smores got to love this one. I love to camp but this would be second best. I have made them with a gas stove in my kitchen before.


Would you live in one of these tiny spaces. I thought my little space was small but these are really tiny.


Looking for something refreshing!


Have a wonder filled Wednesday and the rest of your week!

Love God With All Your Heart

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
The temperatures have been 20 degrees cooler than recent days of the past. It is 76 this morning. The humidity is less too. More like New England ~ Southern NH should be at this time of the year. I am loving it. My body feels better and I can breathe.

When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You. In God, whose word I praise, In God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can mere man do to me? Psalm 56:3-4 In response to Aurora CO horrific cinema theater shooting incident Pray! God didn't do it man did it and we all of have choice between being good or evil.

I am finally going grocery shopping with friends this weekend. I have household chores and organizing of my desk to accomplish this weekend. Laundry too! I always forget to get quarters for the machines. Hopefully I remember today. I am about out of clean shorts and shirts to wear.

I made some Christmas in July packages for my friends. I need to get them sent out early next week before then month of July is up. I put together some neat little packages of things I have been gathering to share with my friends online. I am all done with mail swaps for now and plan to concentrate on scrapbooking.

In the art world there are such things inchies and twinchies Ever wonder what they are?


Well now you know what they are. Have a wonder filled day wherever you are!

Even HOTTER Today

"And let us not be weary in well doing; for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not." Galatians 6:9

Oh it is supposed to be even hotter today. I have to run errands early I hope. What 97 today oh wow!

I am so grateful for fans and A/C. I once lived in FL with no A/C for a couple of years.

I have been taking it easy a mini vacation from my computer at home for about a week now. No pressures of swapping on Swap-bot.com I am only signing up for art journal pages when they become available. Listia will always be somethng I do. I love to win things for free and I am a fierce bidder HA HA HA I play several games of Scrabble online. This all keeps me busy each day. Along with household chores. I get a workout on this keyboard typing notes to friends online. I work on my art and I am still making two scrapbooks. My DIL has been giving me some more great pictures to use. She and my son are going to be so surprised when I give them the scrapbooks. Gosh maybe I will get them done by Christmas. This weeks project is to clean off my work table so I can start all over again and make it a big mess. No I hope to continue to stay more organized. It makes art and crafting a whole lot more fun when you can find everything you need. For example when valentine's Day rolls around everything related is in one place all together. So I can look through my Valentine's section and see oh I need cupcakes or hearts. I would love to have all my ribbons displayed but I have no where I want to do that here. They need to be protected from the common areas of the home. I took some pretty pictures of flowers on the way to Helen's funeral.

I love to photograph flowers and these are all copywritten. You do not have my permission to copy any pictures in my blog. Created by Glenna Normyle Southern NH

Just Another HOT HOT HOT

I have not written in my blog for over a week. I have been busy and also I have processing the recent death of someone who was dear to me, Helen. I finally let her go to where she belongs and that is in Heaven. A part of her will always be in my heart forever!

If you are like me you save all of your scraps of papers too. Here you will find a great way to use your paper scraps!


I walk with Him Do you?


My Pinterest boards are so much fun to do! Check it out I have a group on mine.


I hope the above connections interest you! I strive to provide new pictures and new content daily in my blogs. I have been gathering some more summer 2012 content and taking summer pictures to share with you.

All the brothers here send you greetings. Greet one another with a holy kiss.1 Corinthians 16:20
81 at One PM EST here in Southern NH no sun grey and cloudy YAY but muggy and it will rain today sometime. The weather report says so. I talked to my older grandson on the phone last night and said Hi! I love you's! He is four, I am so blessed to have him and baby brother too. Praise be to Him thank you so very much!

Finally Friday

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. 2 Timothy 3:16
TGIF this week has been a tough one. Seems like it is dragging on. I had a viewing Monday and funeral Tuesday for Helen my grandsons great grandmother. Then back down to see family for Fourth of July The fireworks were beautiful. Lots of family time and it was good. I watched the fireworks from my place a day early on the 3rd. I have been busy. I did my grocery shopping yesterday. Today I need to run errands and possibly go out to lunch. I called my friend but I have not heard back from her. She might be sleeping. It is 10 AM Friday in southern NH Already it is 74 and supposed to go up to 91 today and 93 tomorrow. I am praying for all those people who are suffering and still have no electricity and triple digit temperatures. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Praise Him it looks like some relief is right around the corner for you in the MidWest USA. Some rain and lower temperatures. Out of the triple digits.

What is behind the record heat?

There are less bees among us these days. So people are coming up with ways to repopulate bees.


I have a fascination for handmade paper. Here is how one way it is done.


I have a vision for my future but it is all part of God's plan. If He wants me to have nice people in my life He will put them there. It is for me to pick and choose the right ones. He put Helen in my life, she made it amazing to share my grandsons with her their great grandmother and I am going to miss her. Family events will never be the same. RIP Helen.

Angels Among Us

A friend loves you all the time, and a brother is born for a time of adversity. Proverbs 17:17
I attended Helen's wake today from 4 to 8 PM. Helen is my grandsons Great Grandmother. GG they called her. She lived a wonderfully full life. Poor Grampy her husband of 57 years was there and Helen's daughter my DIL's Mother and her brother plus literally a hundred or more family members and friends arrived prior to that the veteran's paid their respect. Tomorrow morning is the service at the funeral home and then a formal burial nearby. Helen looked lovely. She is at peace finally. Her soul up with our Heavenly Father! I love you GG and I am going to miss watching my grandsons grow with you. One of the last things we talked about was how much fun it is to watch the boys playing. We laughed and enjoyed that. Helen you were an angel among us. We are going to truly miss you and we will all take care of Grampy.  
Today was a scorcher 84 and hot in the sun. Cool in the A/C. Well I am pretty tired so I am going to call it one long day.
