Brrrrrr it is cold out there!

Temps dropped in our area again and it started to snow once again! This was yesterday by the way. Today we woke up to a very cold day once again but it is a beautiful sunny day : )
I have so much going on at the moment, thought I would stop and jot a few lines down before I plunged further into the day.
On my, purging, cooking and sewing. Spring cleaning comes early in our household!
I know it will feel so much better when I am done but for the moment it is a mess! Funny how I have to make a bigger mess as I am cleaning the mess that has collected in our homes to get it cleaner, organized.
Jess and I have been enjoying the Austin movies we have collected so far. It is such a joy to watch them with her! Her favorite so far is Northanger Abbey.
Well I best get back to my "work"

My first finish of the year!

I just finished these placemats for my mom and I found them to be a quick project. I love the pattern.....I just might make myself a set!

Now I am itching to do some needlework! I have sooooo many projects lined up! Question is should I do some cross stitching or embroidery? Hmmmmmm

A new year

The start of a new year! I love sitting by candle light in the evening the last few days of the year....sipping a nice hot cup of tea, reflecting on the past year and what possibilities will come in the next year. This year has not been different.

My personal goals are the same typical ones I hear others write about, more time and a closer relationship with God. Better health choices, more know the typical list : )

My biggest desire aside from getting closer to God and really hearing and knowing His direction in my life is to live life in a more determined way. I want to cherish my time with my family and friends.....really stop and be there for them. I also desire to become a better helpmate for my making home a sanctuary from the chaos of the world....I want to incorporate some of the old way of living into our home. Simple hard work but so satisfying!

Our Christmas was nice and relaxing even though I worked the night before and had to cook as soon as I got home in the morning! My favorite time of the day was in the evening when we all sat down to watch some movies and just relax! Dear hubby had to work that evening tho and he was missed! Sadly we all forgot to take pictures!

New Years Eve found me at work again! Thankfully it was a quiet yet busy night in the hospital.

So now for the organizing, planning of a new baby! baby is due next month and we are very happy and excited to become grandparents! We can hardly wait to spoil this new lil wee one : )
Later today I will be ordering some yarn so I can start crocheting some blankets!

My other goal is to be more consistent with the blog writing! : ) Well tea is getting a bit cold so I better go and relax and shop! Thank goodness for online shopping : ) No need to trudge out in the cold!
