I get a little introspective as the New Year approaches. I have just spent the last twelve months zooming through the days to this day.
Then there are the many photos of our yard and landscape. We had snow and ice, beautiful daffodils, tulips and irises all in succession.
Then the beautiful summer flowers in the front flower bed, from gladiolus to Russian sage to Purple coneflowers and daisies.The many pictures of yarn and projects in process including the craft fair.
There are many photos of family and trips to museums and lovely memories to share but I will not bore you with all of these photos. I have been graced with a very full year. We moved one person twice and three people once, if that makes any sense. We moved our daughter home from college at the beginning of the summer. Our son and his wife moved into their new apartment. We moved two of our kids back to college and finally we moved my mom to her new apartment. So those were huge moves and took time and attention. I just cleared out the last box of sewing materials from my Mom, yesterday. I am working on cleaning up in the studio after all of the busy time this Christmas season.
Things I am looking forward to this year include the Use Your Stash Challenge, doing a craft fair or two, some time spent fluffing the inside of the house. Here is my list for the future.
- Prepping for a craft fair this June
- Creating some new products for both shops
- De-cluttering my house and studio
- Finishing up about ten works in progress
- Finishing up the tree skirt. I want to add some trim to the edging and possibly a decoration or two.
- Clean out Christmas decorations that we haven’t used in years
- Do some dog training. We have four in the back yard right now as we are watching my brother’s dog.
- Make a menu and grocery list every week
- Our oldest daughter is scheduled to graduate from college this next school year. So while it she officially doesn’t graduate until 2016. I know the year will be full of getting her prepared.
This is fairly busy list. I know that we will be driving our daughter back to college, and also bringing her home. She has a wedding this summer to go to and we might take a vacation. I would like to work in the yard and get some things cleared up. All of this in addition to living life and home schooling our youngest. The days and years just seem to get shorter and time seems to be a more precious commodity.
Talk to you later,
