Storage Wars and other random thoughts

Hello internet...

I am sitting here watching the Storage Wars.  It's a crazy show were people bid on storage units that have been abandoned with the contents left in.  Some times the stuff that is left behind is crazy.  Cars, pictures all sorts of things..if you have the chance to watch it give it a try.

I am working on an embrodiry project for my daughters room.  It is silver pillowcases with disco balls on them I am about half way through the first one and really enjoying having a project to do again. 

I very excited to start the 30 days of list projects.  I am going to make my book for it this weekend. I am thinking that I will use binder rings and card stock and different coloured pages...I am hoping to have some pics of my work this weekend. 

I leave you with a shot of my Granddaughter....Have a great weekend everyone out there.....

30 Days of Lists

Good afternoon Internet,

It has been awhile.  It's crazy how I always have good intentions to post here at least once a week but then life runs away one me.  I now have a reason to post more often.  I have joined the 30 days of lists challenge.  It sounds like a lot of fun. 

If you have not joined the challenge yet I encourage you to try it out

Have a great day everyone..Talk to you soon

Good afternoon Internet,

How are you all doing out there....Hopefully the weather is a wonderful for you as it is for us here....The sun is shining and has been for a couple of days now...Sooo Awesome...

Today my husband and I are going to go pay for our lighing for our new house...Sooooo exciting.  They have said that we are a bit ahead of schedule so we may be in our house sooner then we origianlly though.  Which is AWESOME...I am sooo looking forward to the new house...the size of it alone is going to be perfect...

I will be starting one of the projects from my emboridery class this weekend.  I am thinking it would be a good thing to teach the girls.  It is a neat little lantren made out of a mason jar.  I will put pics up when it is done...

That is enough for now have a great weekend...

Rainny days

Good evening Internet,

Today was a pretty good day. I had a meeting with my boss she is going to help me figure out what I want in life. It's crazy at 36 years old I still have no idea. All in all it was a pretty good day.

Still worried about my daughter she is so in a place she doesn't want to be but has no idea how to get away.

I ordered a couple of things for embroidery today. I got a little carried away. Got some thread and a couple of tools.. I am very excited to get them in the mail. I have just about finished the project I was working on then I'm not sure if I want to start a new one or wait until mollie's class starts...more then likely I will wait cause I am still very slow just getting back at it.

So I ask you Internet what would you do with your life if you had nothing holding you back?

Have a great night and remember "Don't forget to be AWESOME"

Hello Internet,

I have joined a couple of different projects to try this month.  The first is a 30 day journaling challenge (which i am behind on already but I will be getting caught up this weekend.  I have done these a couple of times and it is a lot of fun.

The second is an embroidery class that will give us ideas on how to be creative with our projects.   I am looking forward to getting back in to embroidery again.  I haven't really done any projects for about 20 years...holy...not sure why I stopped. probably time.  so with the class I signed up for I will be learning a few new things.  :)

I will try to keep you updated on all the projects that I have going on.  In the mean time.....DFTBA

Today I am wondering "Where did I go wrong? Did I give her to much love? Did I not love her enough?" My daugher is 18 and pregnant again.  she has chossen to keep it and get married to the father.  I know that she needs to find her own way and that I need to let her lose but it is extremely hard. I love her with all that I am.  How to leave them to fall when you know that they need to and then know that they will come back to you.  One of my biggest fears is that he will take her away from us completly.   

Anyway enough about that I am going to go into a dark place if I over analyse it.  And that will not be a fun place to be.

THis weekend I am going to our cabin.  We are taking our granddugher with us so it will be a fun weekend.  I am looking forward to the nice weather and the good company.  I just wish my daughter was there with us. Oh well what can you do?

Well Internet have a great weekend....and...

Good morning Internet,

This weekend was a busy one....Cake...Cookies....Cake...Cookies...with a smattering of Mickey Mouse in there...

My daugher was asked to bake a cake for a Girl Guide event so we started the process on Thursday night with baking the cake.  Then Friday the fun started.  Yetikid started the decorating with the last bit of cake was put in the oven to bake.  We had lots of fun hanging out with both Izzy and Yetikid.  Our efforts were well received. I was sooo very proud of her.  There were things that we will have to change for the next time she does a cake like this but all in all it was awesome.  You can see for yourself the pictures below.

We sold cookies at Canadian Tire with our Pathfinder group this weekend.  It was crazy cold and snowy.  We were all in winter parkas and long johns cause it was so cold were we were.  We are outside in front of the building and there is no sun only shade so it feels about 10 degrees colder then it acctually is outside.  But even with the cold we did not to bad we sold 31 cases which is just able 3/4s of our cookies we need to sell.

House Update
Our house that we are having built is moving along pretty well.  My husband and a few of our friends were there this weekend doing the low voltage wireing.  They managed to get it done in 2 days. According to my husband that is only step one of a 7 (I think) step process.  The rest of the house is ready for insulation so that should be going in soon.. Man do things ever feel like they are going crazy fast. 

Well all have a Great day

Today I am feeling restless......I am not sure why...thinking it is because I have not done anything creative for a couple of weeks.....I find that doing creative things center me...

So to you out there what centers you what calms you when things are crazy all around you?

Hello Everyone....

It's been a long time since I have been here and I know I say that almost every time I am here but this time will be different.  I want to make an effort to write at least once a week.  I figure if I make an effort and want to I should be able to do that.....

I have been sick the last couple of days.  Got a head cold from my granddaughter.  She is getting better I am getting worse but I know it will get better soon.

I have joined picture inspiration with Tracy Clark she is a great photographer and I think it will help me with my self esteem issues.  I would love to be able to be a photographer and in order to get there I need to be willing to put my work out there.  This week is all about you...I haven't taken my picture because of the red nose that I have been sporting for the last week but that will change soon....

Any way I will leave you with this......

Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.
