Time Again

Can you believe it is time for Twyla on Tuesday again?! These weeks roll around so fast. We have a very busy week this week. Lindsey is having a birthday on Saturday. Her 21st. We are preparing a big celebration! Also, haircuts and Dr. appointments are filling our schedules. Not the kind of things I like to do with my time.

What do I like to do with my time? Well, my No. 1 favorite thing is to be roaming through antique stores finding treasures. Spending time with my kids, playing with my puppies and knitting are all things that I enjoy spending time doing, too. I can't talk about what I spend time doing without mentioning the time I spend on the computer visiting all the wonderful friends and inspirational women that I have come to know through the world of blogging. I don't feel that any of the time I spend at the computer is wasted because I enjoy it so much and time spent doing something you enjoy is never wasted.

There is an old comedian's adage that says 'Timing is everything.' I try to live my life by that saying because I believe it wholeheartedly.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything beautiful in it's time.

I love this picture of my little boys playing. They look like they're hugging each other.

My friend Sarita wanted me to convey to everyone how touched she was by the prayers that you so lovingly said for her. She is feeling better, but is not back to her full strength yet. Thank you all so much for being so caring. We have the best readers!

I hope you all have a beautiful week! Twyla

Yay! I get to read Twyla On Tuesday while I'm still in my jammies and drinking my coffee!!

I agree with you- I don't see computer time as wasted time at all!

Your clocks are so cute, Twyla! ☺

Can't wait to see what you have planned for Lindsey's B day! I can't believe it's her birthday again already...

My Adrian turns 28 this month. Weird... His Birthday always startles me!

Have a great day today. We're off to the city. ♥

First of all- an early Happy Birthday to Lindsey! 21, huh? Whoohoo!
And secondly, I'm with you, Twyla, on the searching for treasures at antique stores, and I'm wishing I could spend some TIME with you doing just that!
Did you make that adorable felt clock?? Oh, it is just the cutest, sweetest thing!

Those clocks are so cute, and so are your little boys!
I bet Lindsey's birthday party is going to be something pretty special, and you'll probably be working on it all week, won't you?! Our daughter is turning 21 in December. Time does fly, indeed!
Glad to hear that your friend Sarita is on the mend!
Have a great week!


Morning Twyla,
Love the photo of your boys!!
21...I remember those days. A young bride,working full time...who knew what changes would come down the road.
Let's go antique shopping when you get here :)
Have a good day.

Oh Twyla!
Time does fly quickly doesn't it?
My Heidi Girl has already hit 30 and has 2 girls of her own. Seems like only yesterday. Your Lindsey 21??

I love the little antique clock. Is it a planter? I have one that had a music box to it. It was a gift when one of the kids were born. I believe there is a little elephant on it.

Thanks for sharing sweetie. Have a wonderful day. Country hugs, Sherry

I agree--I have so enjoyed meeting so many amazing women through having a blog--why didn't I start sooner?! I love the images you've posted--that clock is just fabulous! Have a wonderful day, and Happy Birthday to Lindsey on Saturday!

So happy to back in the neighborhood again! What a wonderful time you had as well on Halloween. Today's post was so much fun for me. I still just love that little felt clock and plan on making another with the colors another crafter used. Thank you for your well wishes on the wedding. It was such a special day! E

Here I sit tonight taking time to read blogs. It's a highlight of my everyday, connecting with you. As I type I have a chihuahua on my lap who is kissing me. Life is good!
Those little clocks are so cute. I'm just doing my bathroom in pink and white poodles! Yep! Its a poodle post, coming soon!
