I seem to have gotten off into some kind of cul-de-sac and ended up going around in circles this last quarter. But I am back on the main path and headed down the road once again.
I have spent a bit of time wondering if I should turn around and try to do some of the undone things that got dropped along the wayside behind me. I have decided to only scoop up a few dragging projects but for the most part I shall move ahead.
But I'm not the only undecided one. Strange season. Very cold, wet and late. Then the poplar fluff started flying and I'm sure there is some dandelion seeds floating around as well. I have never seen the seeds from the cottonwoods this heavy before. The ground is coated. Of course, the really hard frost last night and the night before is adding to the whiteness and the wetness so they are quite stuck in place. oye, more weeding ahead!
We'll have to see if the fruit trees can survive this late frost.
Speaking of fruitful, our household has increased by one more person and a small 3 pound Chihuahua! :0 More stuff and my own stuff needs to continually be addressed. :( This seems to be a constant challenge.
I knew I would be changing the format of daily journaling. I really liked the 52 cards in a deck idea but I am not at all ready for that so I will pursue 12 handmade books. The first one is made using Teesha Moore's tutorials. I may try a different way each month because doing them all the same doesn't really inspire me to do my best.
I also need to get back on track with my classes. I do enjoy them and when I was was considering my options I had to 'kill' my power button to keep from adding any new ones. sheesh!
I shall sing that song- "same song, second verse; a little bit louder and a little bit worse!" as I paste all the projects for the second quarter of the quilting Finish Along into the third quarter. I have to. I have no place to put the stack I have gathered! lol
I am continuing to finish up the home deco projects. The table top is not cooperating and I was ready to say good enough but my dsil says he'll come back next week and sand it down again. I need to turn my thoughts to the two book cases for each side of the stove. I think I want a lighter inside but they should kinda blend into that wall. Maybe something similar to the chairs! Gold outside and that yellow white on the inside. Then the accessories will be the items that stand out.
I do like blogging. It helps clarify things. Who knew there was such a curve and so many bumps in the spring journey but it is okay to "pick oneself up, dust oneself off, and start all over again!".
Hi Ho! Hi Ho! Its off to work I go....
