This and That!

We have been doing a little of this and that around the Watts Villa. We are gearing up for a fresh start and a new school year. So we are doing a little organizing and cleaning out of clothes that no longer fit, school books no longer needed, and toys not played with anymore to donate. We have been bike riding around the canal in the mornings when it is cool, but we have left the cameras and all that sort of stuff at home and just enjoying what we see tucking it into our memories. We have also still been drawing this and that in our nature journals enjoying and remembering all that we have seen this summer. Noah also today set up a habitat for his green anole that he caught since he would like it to stay for awhile. I have been tying up some loose ends of things I have needed to do for the children's ministry, and also sewing some clothes for the fall. So as you see a little of this and a little of that.
Here is what this and that looks like at our place.
Painting shelves for all Anna's friends!

Shelves up and all her friends have a place. Wow Anna has alot of friends lol!

A sweet surprise in my sewing pins from Liam....

Sketching in my journal.

A Symphony of circle skirts for the Fall!! Made out of heavy bottom weight material that I got from Joann Fabrics on clearance for 2.00 a yard!
One long pretty plaid skirt that I think will look nice with my brown riding boots...

I really enjoy being busy in the home and I am very thankful for these quiet summer days filled with this and that together with my family.

Let us acknowledge the LORD, let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth. Hosea6:3


  1. Dear Heather, You have been busy...oh, but I know that this kind of busy is the good kind ;)

    Your skirts look so lovely! All of them are so nice and they could be dress up or down. Now, all you have to do is sew blouses to go with them...

    Many blessings to you dear friend...may Our Lord Jesus Christ, continue to guide you and fill you with peace.

  2. I loved your this and that photos and your skirts are just lovely. I love your daughter's friends. It is so much like my daughter's. She is twenty-five now but still has her stuffed friends. They take up her spare bedroom! One time she was pulled over for speeding and when the police office looked in her back seat he noticed that her stuffed animals were all fastened up in their seat belts! HA! He let her off and gave her a friendly warning!!
    Blessings as you enjoy the rest of your summer!

  3. Dear Heather,

    Glad to hear you are keeping busy doing fruitful things. How thoughtful of Liam to leave you that sweet message made with pins; love your skirts; love your sketches.

    God's grace and peace be with you.

  4. I love the skirts!
    Enjoy these few weeks of summer that are left!

  5. Heather,

    Your skirts are very beautiful. It sounds like you are having a lovely summer!

    Love, Heather

  6. Dear Heather,

    It looks like you have indeed been busy! I love the skirts; they'll be wonderful this fall and winter. It's hard to believe that summer has almost slipped away again, isn't it?




Thanks For leaving your thoughts...Have a blessed day!
