And the rains come down

Well yes it has been raining, but this is western Oregon and I would rather have rain than snow. At least on the road when I have to drive 25 miles to work. So yes it is almost the end of January, my oldest son will be 39 the end of this week. Don't have any idea how that happened. I thought he was just a kid. Well, guess it is all relative, in more than one way. Even though it isn't spring yet, this time of year makes me yearn for spring. We are starting little plants in the greenhouse and planning a spring full of beautiful pots and baskets of flowers. Which will be followed by lots of yummy veggies and altogether lots of work. Neasie and I are working on some new ideas for Oh My Gaudy designs that will fit wow everyone in the new season. And Rhett and I are slowly learning how to use our new (to us) embroidery machine and software. We are slowly getting the hang of this and plan a lot of CRON shirts and hats for this year. Of course I have other plans for beautiful Quilt blocks and embelishments for garments also. My mind is so way ahead of my body on most of this. Am starting to do a little sewing again, as I slowly recover from my health issues. But now, I must get ready for work, so have a great day, and my the snow only fall on the mountains in your world.

And we thought winter was leaving...sigh

Here it is nearly the end of January time is really flying by. We got 6 inches of snow during the night and it is still coming down. Very pretty outside but I am more than ready for spring!

Our new embroidery business is coming along nicely and keeping me busy when I am not at my 'day job'. It is a fun and rewarding business and allows me to let my creativity run rampant which is an important and a necessary part of my life. I can't quite imagine not sewing, crafting, knitting, crocheting and the like....that would just not be fun.

So, heres to winning at least a part of the lottery to enable me to spend more time being creative and less time working for someone other than myself!!!

Well hey , it sounds good right?

A new year

Here we are beginninga new year, and possibly a lot of new challenges. Personally I have chosen this year to be a year of wellnes, of body, soul and spirit. Starting with body, I have had some health issues taken care of and am now looking forward to a healthier physical year which should help me to achieve more wellness of soul and spirit. So, with that in mind, I shall try to focus on all those small important things that make this life worthwhile. I wake up each day with the opportunity to choose how the day will effect me. This year I choose to be as positive as I can and try to face each day and challenge with grace and confidence. OK there is my resolution. Now the hard part, trying to actually live up to that. Well we all set goals and if we didn't set them, we could never reach them . So that is my bit for now. Talk again later. Linna
