Good morning my blogging friends! Since it's been forever, I guess I should say Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year! I have had quite the hiatus, but I am happy to say that I am finally starting to find some balance, and am looking forward to visiting here more often.
Do you wonder just what I have been doing, since I haven't been blogging? Well, plenty I can tell you! I am finally starting to get the whole picture, of my job as a hospice nurse. I was totally unprepared for what I was getting into, but I love what I do. I am putting a lot of miles on my little car-I never bought the SUV I was hunting for, my little Prius gets such good mileage, I couldn't give it up. I am all set up with a traveling office and medical supply in my car, it's coming together.
Another recent event is having an aged family member move in with us. I think this has been a greater adjustment than my job. We have all pitched in as a family, taking care of my father in law. There is still a big learning curve here, but we figure it out day by day.
Have I done any crafting? Yes! I was able to actually complete a couple of scrapbook layouts over the holidays, while we were snowed in. It's been a long time since I completed a layout with journaling and all, I was long overdue for some paper time. I haven't taken any pictures to post, but nonetheless, something complete.
And, I have completed some cross stitch! I had a piece I was anxious to complete before Christmas, and I did. My project was for my son and his wife, and they came up from TN to celebrate before Christmas, so I had to rush the last few days. I was very pleased with the final result, and I think the kids were too
It was not easy to get a real good picture, with such light colors, and the glare from the glass. This was a wedding sampler, with the kids names and wedding date. I found the frame and mat at Hobby Lobby, they really set off the sepia tones of the threads. I loved doing this piece, but I was happy to move on to something with a little more color after this. Later this week, I'll post my other finish, the first for 2014!
I am happy to be able to be back and post a quick hello and update this morning. However, it's time to fill my travel cup, and hit the road. It's a little foggy this morning, and I want to give myself a little extra time traveling the dark country roads.
Hope you have a wonderful day, thanks for stopping by!
