May 1st...

Spent all day yesterday shopping with my mom. We had a very nice and very tiring time. We hit the the outlet malls in St. Augustine. It was nice that the crowds were very low yesterday so we did not have to fight for parking or through throngs of people.

Today we attended church. Bro. Paul gave a really good sermon as usual. It is so nice to have a pastor that we enjoy hearing. We went for so long being unhappy with the last pastor and were very worried that we wouldn't get a good one when the time for change came.

It is raining today and suppose to continue all day. A good day to hang out and watch tv. I need to be getting some scrapping done, but can't seem to shake the sinus headache I woke up with this morning. Not only do I need to be scrapping, I need to be getting Mother's Day cards ready to mail and my sister's b'day gift ready to mail. I have got to get this place and myself organized so that I am not at the last minute trying to get these things done. I use to be so on the ball to get things done, but not anymore. I hate not being organized anymore. I use to be sickeningly organized, then I had kids and we moved several times. My organization went out the window. I miss those days.

  1. HOw is the job search going? Hope the kids are doing better too. I know what you mean about wanting to be organized, as I am a "wanna be" in that department. I buy all the books and mags and make tiny baby steps and then LIFE happens and I just live from mini crisis to mini mishap.
    Have a great day!

Guess who is Sewing...

Look what I made!!! I have not done anything creative in a very long time. Don't ask me what made me decide to give sewing a go again because I have no idea. The pattern for this bag is from Alicia Paulson and is called Jane Market Bag, you can find it on her website for only $6. It was so easy to follow the instructions. I would definitely recommend that you have a larger cutting surface and ruler to make it easier to cut the pieces out. My little 12x12 cutting surface and 6x13 clear ruler made cutting the pieces slightly difficult but not impossible.

Don't you just love the red fabric! I purchased the fabric at JoAnn Fabrics a couple of years ago to make an apron and since I had some left over thought I would use it for my first bag. The pattern calls for the use of 4 different fabrics but I decided to just use the 3. The inside of the bag is lined with the same black and white check fabric I used on the handles. These are so cute & are a great size so I will definitely …

Holy...Hot Flash... Batman!!!

It appears that I am definitely in menopause at least according to my recent blood test. I've been going through perimenopause for the last several years. You know hot flashes, night sweats and crazy cycles, etc. In the past twelve months I've only had 2 periods and the hot flashes have been worse than ever!

Life On An Even Keel...

On An Even Keel is an idiom that means - calm and not likely to change suddenly, balanced. This is how I want my life to be. It use to be this way 15 years ago and I'm not sure exactly what happened to change that position. Everything about my life feels completely out of balance & so crazy and I cannot take it any more! Some way, some how we have got to turn things back around and get on an even keel again!!! 

My plan for 2011 is to find that balanced and calm life again. I am working on cleaning out and getting rid of stuff. Only keeping what means something to us. I want to get started working on decorating our house and turning it into a HOME and not just a house. And I want to get our finances in a better place. As always I am open to any suggestions anyone may have to assist in this change.
