It seems every year around Christmas time, I tell myself I’m going to do better next year. I tend to make plans and dream about what I want done before next Christmas. I had several quilts I wanted to whip up, along with several other things.
So, it’s October, and this is the only one I’ve completed.
I’ve made a little progress on my redwork Santa. I’ve found a regular time of each day to work on him, as my friend got me interested in a couple of soap operas before she passed away last month. I catch myself saying “this is so cheesy, this is so stupid” , but I keep going back. Sewing while I watch the soaps, makes me feel a little less guilty for watching. 😁
I drove to Mississippi with my dog and visited this girl for a week. I really had to push aside some anxiety and trust in God to make that trip. It went well and I’m so happy I visited. ❤️
And I can always find time for reading, as my 15 year old Sweet Pea keeps me close by her side these days. I picked this book up on a whim and it wasn’t anything like I expected. However, I loved it ! It was about a young family in Alaska and the anxiety and heartbreaks of a young mother, trying to hold a family together while her husband was commercial fishing. It stayed on my heart for a couple days after I finished reading it. I couldn’t decide if I was “grieving about” or “satisfied with” the ending.
If any of you have read it, I’d love to know your thoughts. It’s an older book, and if you are anything like me, I forget what I’ve read a few days later. But let me know if you’ve read it!
