- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Take your needle my child and
work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like that...one
stitch at a time taken patiently.

The thought for today....Not on my time...
Because this is a Chrsitmas Cactus, I thought it should have bloomed at Christmas..It didn't. But now, when all the decorations are put away, and looking out the window the colors of gray and white blanket the neighborhood, this little beauty has buds. Right on time..I have two of these, one is a Thanksgiving Cactus, it is blooming now also. No matter when I think they should bloom, when the conditions are right they will bring forth flowers. These type of plants require so many hours of daylight and darkness to bloom. They have to go through a process to produce the beauty which is their flower. Not on my time, but right on time. So I have to wonder to myself is it the same with our lives? When we think, and when it is are two different events.But it is always right on time. As with these flowers and all living things, there must be a time rest, renew and regrow, to produce the beauty which is the bud and flower.
It is not on my time...but right on time....
