It's that time again to focus on our "likes" this week! Here's my list for this week:
1. Retirement. Okay, I know that's pretty broad, but I'm really liking it right now. There are so many things to accomplish for the holiday and yet I want to take time to enjoy the sights and sounds of the season. Guess those 50 years of working are worth it right now!
2. Google search. All of a sudden I couldn't print from my PC! But, I just "googled" the issue and found the answer in seconds. I'm so grateful for this and the fact that people post solutions to so many problems. I'm still in awe as you can see.
3. Creative marketing.
4. Quilting friends. I'm not that much of a social person and over the years have only had a few close friends. About a year ago, I became friends with a fellow quilter from my LQS. She was 20 years younger than me and only quilting a few years but she really used every free moment to quilt and we enjoyed chatting. She was still working, was a mom and gramma. I say was because she passed away suddenly last week from a simple outpatient procedure! Our quilting group is in shock, but I am so grateful to have known her and shared our quilting obsession. And, we learned a lot from each other! It is so true that life is short, and we need to appreciate others now.
Well, I pray you are all enjoying your holidays, whatever they may be. If you have the chance to visit someone who is alone at this time, that would be wonderful.
I closed the sewing area up for the rest of the year so I can keep the bedroom clean while the family visits Saturday for lunch. We have a very small home and the only way to the back patio is through my bedroom/sewing room! (But, as I'm writing this I'm thinking I need to sew something to escape the Christmas blues)! Oh well. It's all a process.
I did just get a call now from my daughter that my grandson wants me at his school Holiday Show today. I am so excited.
I'm hoping Lee Anna's sight will be up and running this week so check it out for more "likes" at :Not Afraid of Color. She has had a really busy week scheduled already!
Thanks so much for stopping by here at my blog. I will take a break from blogging starting Tuesday and will probably not be blogging again till January 6th since I will be watching my grandson for Christmas break at his home. Yay!
Best wishes and take care of yourself! Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year!
