Category Archives: Bucket List

Things I plan to do but I will not be upset if I can’t get it done in the time frame I have chosen; sometimes life changes things and you have to be flexible! God is in control not me!



I do really enjoy writing. I have allowed myself to become so busy that my blog got pushed back..way back.

You know how a mom is, want to do so many, many hobbies. I still love Plexus, I got really involved with sharing the products and my story!

I have been quilting!

I have been serving the Lord!!!

Taking care of my husband, kids, and grand-kids! Furbabies!

Now I have a new Bucket List to work on! My new word this year:

PURGE…deleting unwanted items from my home, deleting unwanted fat from my body! So far  slow but good. I am keeping tract so I can see the victory 🙂

Homeschooling is still going on and we are running at our own pace, each students 😉  The cats are fun to watch. 3 teen kittens and my older cat. I need to find pictures for you, being that I’m (sadly) just like a cat mom, I have too many pictures.

Plexus Facebook still going! Plexus website is new! Love it, new look check it out!   Health and Wellness! Who doesn’t want it?





Jumping/Leaping Cats or Kittens? Quilt


How do you figure out a name for a quilt?

I came up with JUMPING CATS  guess that was the first name that hit me!

Well I finished it 3 cheers!!!   Cheer….Cheer…cheer

Here’s the pictures, and it’s one off my BUCKET list makes me feel good, however, I am afraid I might be skipping #2 on The List (lose weight)

I am now working on #1  C’s quilt since he graduates in May and I need to get graduation finalized around here (homeschooling)

Time to get pictures ordered (we took some a couple of different days), announcements, cap and gown, diploma ,ect.

Back to the quilt…the list….

Here’s a few pictures of the Jumping Cats:
