On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Pink Saturday

Today I'm linking up for Pink Saturday with How Sweet the Sound.

One of my goals each day these days is to get my DH out and about - moving around is key. So I'm thinking up things to do. I enjoy being productive, but I also am a homebody who enjoys almost nothing more than staying cozy in my chair with a book.

On Friday, together, we accomplished quite a bit and had some fun, too. After breakfast this morning, we got out in the yard and trimmed the PINK crape myrtle (which hasn't bloomed yet) and cleaned up the flower bed a little. I needed to run to Mardel to try to find a new Bible for one of our grandsons, so we both made our way there. Look what we found! I love it and hope he will enjoy it.

Another thing I had wanted to check out was the adult coloring books which I thought we could do together.

Isn't this lovely?

Bought my colored pencils.

Now this is proof that I am no artist.
My flowers and birds are pretty much the same color,
but hey, at least I managed to stay in the lines!

For the past few months, I also wanted something to hang on the doorknobs of a shelf in the bathroom. 

Aren't these doodads sweet on each side of the cross?

Next on the list, we made a stop at Nothing Bundt Cakes to pick up my free bundtlet for my birthday! Red Velvet. And just because I have to make myself feel better about taking something for nothing, I bought a carrot cake as well. Lol! 

We stopped at the nursery and bought a couple of star jasmine, a pink periwinkle and a wandering Jew plant, then came home to plant them. Very timely, since we had a wonderful rain this afternoon.

It has always been a mystery to me why this plant is called such, so like most everything else trivial, I went to Google. Here's the simplest explanation I found: "the Wandering Jew Plant and the Inch Plant. Both names are centered around its ability to spread and grow very quickly, with little care or intervention from people. The Wandering Jew is a legend which basically follows that a Jewish man was cursed to walk the earth forever, therefore like this plant the Jew will eventually go everywhere."

More pink! A new quilt for the pink bedroom. This is so sweet!

On our way home, we decided to stop at the new barbecue place called Hard 8! It gets high reviews from everybody and it is always packed out! Pretty good stuff for lunch.

Now, for the end of my pink Saturday, here I am in Charleston two years ago in April in front of these beautiful azaleas. It is hard to believe this trip is now two years behind us.

No matter what:

What a delightful post. Enjoyed everything, but especially red velvet cake and quilt. Quilts are my weakness. Have way too many vintage and new.

I would say you had quite a day, out and about! That quilt is gorgeous! It's so fun to have a day like that and when you get home you feel a good kind of tired because of all your accomplishments! Bet that cake was really good!

Hi Nonnie, so glad to visit. Some great items on this post. My favorite is the coloring books. I do those also. Have wandering Jew also and am limited in my activities. Two store bought years and age related aches and pains. I hate getting old but that is the normal progressing and must deal with it. Have had a very active and happy life.
