Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

Friday, June 12: Lunch Time equals Pillow Time!

Lunch time= pillow time, and I don't mean nap time...although I could go for a few Zzzzz's right now! I went home a sewed some snazzy lumbar pillows for the 2 side chairs of the dining table. I thought we needed a little punch of color so I went to my favorite little fabric store the other day and picked up a few yards of a bold geometric print...premier prints are my favorite fabrics because they are so bold and HAPPY!! I like classic furniture in neutral colors so I can pop accents (also because my artsy-fartsy side gets bored easily and it is a lot easier to switch pillows then to switch sofas!) So here is a picture of my creation...oh and that is one of our new dining chairs! I adore them! Also here is a painting I finished painting last night for one of the dining room walls. Everyone loves granny smith apples...right?! This painting reminds me of my Grandma Marilyn's famous apple pies!

Have a great weekend....before and after pix of the dining room are coming soon. Repainting the molding is taking much longer than anticipated.
