New month, new day, new season....

Morning lovelies!

Pray you all have had a marvelous weekend. I spent most of Sunday watching mysteries, making yummy homemade spaghetti sauce and enjoy some yarn therapy.  Found a bag of goodies I'd forgotten I purchased, so since I had the yarn winder out proceeded to make lovely yarn cakes heehee.

Today, is a new day and I purpose to focus on improving myself. I shall not dwell on what I had nor what I don't have, yet be thankful for what I have and rejoice in who I am today.  With that, I shall begin my next art study and I thought I'd share it with you all.  Enjoy and have a fabulous day!

I'm back...maybe!

I took a walk down memory lane on my blog, oh my how my life has changed since 2009. I've tried to keep up with my blogs and have failed miserably. I want to so much for I miss the networking, sharing and joy of being a part of the blogging community. I'm going to go slow, will not post everyday, but will try to at least post weekly.  There is a lot of new things happening in this single woman's life.  My kiddos are grown and there are grands. I want/need to return to a simpler lifestyle and enjoy the habits of being home. Coming soon ~ pics of my recent knitting and trip to see the grands.

Pray you all are well.  Be blessed.

Its a wintry wonderland here in RVA.  I'm excited for the land has been given the icy rest it needs to kill off bacteria, germs and other unwanted pesky things.  Now it can properly prepare for the coming season.

I thoroughly enjoy this time of year because I too am allowed a rest from being on the go.  I take the time to relax, reflect and simply enjoy each moment slowly.  Just like this morning, I took time and care to get ready for work.  No rushing, no hurry, just simply taking slower steps and being conscious of my surroundings as I prepared for my day.  I admit that I have been truly spoiled the past 15 years or so with not having to get up early or leave home at all on inclement weather days.  However, I did learn to appreciate taking things slow so I enjoy the process and change that has occurred.

When I get off work, I plan to leisurely return home ~ to avoid having an accident as well as just take my time, then make some hash browns, bacon and drop biscuits.  Love comfort food.  After eating and cleaning up, I shall simply rest, ponder and knit.

Have an awesome day all!

Good Morning. Its cold here on the east coast, however, it is not as cold where I am as some places. Thank you Lord. I've been continually reminding myself that it could be colder, it could be worse so just embrace where you are and celebrate.

Today I will be working on my weekly schedule  then I have a base for my daily routines.  Need to establish routines so that I can accomplish more as well as spend time simply being. Once the weekly schedule is outlined it will allow me the freedom to decide just how I want to incorporate old and new ideas. Definitely must include weekly knitting and reading for they keep me sane. Who knew that even without having a full house of people to manage, you still need to have routines and plans in place.

On the knitting front, I've recently completed a hat and mini mitts set for a little girl, a team colored scarf for my boss and have a pair of Angry Bird socks OTNs.  Next up is a couple quick headbands and a hat for a co-worker.

Time to get the work done.  Have an awesome day!
