Blogger has finally caught up with me! I've reverted to the "legacy versions" every chance I had.

But as of yesterday, it is not longer and option! It will be interesting to see how this plays out. 

So many options are not available to me anymore. I've already lost my ability to check for posts that don't come to my email. So if you have posted something and you don't see it, well I'm sorry I can't approve it :-(  I just don't understand why they have to change things when they were working fine. Sigh!

Losing it

Ok, I admit it. I am slowly and consistently losing my quilting mojo. It has been more than just what this year has brought. More like the love of quilting has gone out of my heart and life. I am considering moving my fabric stash out, and I need to sell my HQ Sweet Sixteen quilting machine. 

Amy (Diary of a Quilter) had some good suggestions of where things could be donated. Amy is such a generous soul and shares some really good ideas.

If you know anyone who is interested in a practically new HQ Sweet Sixteen, please have them contact me for the details.

Your Hospitality Personality

"Hospitality is a gift both given and received."

Your Hospitality Personality by Morgan Tyree was a delightful insight into why hospitality is an important part of our lives. Finding your personality type opens a path to opening your home and showing you how to maximize your ability to being a host.

"Hospitality hurdles can stop you from being inclined to host, but they don't have to. They can instead motivate you and help you to grow as a host."

With the onset of the Covid pandemic, it's been hard to gather together with friends and family. Yet we are created to connect with people. It's a natural flow of fellowship, whether for a meal, coffee or social media. We can't all model the perfect hostess, but this book helps to define our hospitality personality, and guide us in discovering our strengths and weakness. Learning how we respond to the pressures of hosting, this book will help  you develop tools as a host.

Take the test. I think you will enjoy finding out what your hospitality personality is.

I received a complimentary ebook copy from the publisher, through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

Day of Remembrance

Today is a day of remembrance,
a day that we've counted no more,

the lives that were lost one September morning
as our country woke from shore to shore.

The innocent men and women
who entered eternity's gate,

the pain that our nation encountered
as we beheld their indescribable fate.

A day that changed us forever
as we wept and mourned the loss of an age

we watched with horror at the ruins
and stepped into a new centuries page.

This time in history will be remembered
for the grief and unity held,

by a Nation free and proud to be heralded,
America! God bless you we yelled!

So mark this day one of memory
of a time God held us together

We will never forget,
God is still in control of our land,
let us hold that in our hearts forever.
