30 days of happiness::doing my thing

Finishing up sweaters and getting ready to do some felted stuff...maybe the adorable acorns that Bluebirdbaby did?

I haven't posted in a bit...I didn't decide not to, I've just been steadily, quietly busy. Which is a new state of being for me. Usually when I have a ton of stuff to do my heart races and I feel this little bud of panic in my chest...but that little bud hasn't been there lately....I haven't done anything to remedy yoga, deep breathing, eating better, avoiding caffeine...none of, I don't know what precipitated the change...and I don't know if it will last...all I know is I am enjoying it...damn! it's nice to be happy :)

Note to Briana: I know, I know, I am tempting the gods ;)

So, I have been working on a steady stream of orders for dresses and coats, cleaning and organizing, GOING TO IKEA...that activity is in caps because it is a MAJOR one...I love Ikea, but boy is it an exhausting experience, especially if you are buying furniture...which we did!!! I FINALLY got a bed, a real bed, my dream upholstered bed...I am very happy about it and will show you the finished room makeover very soon...hooray!!! I have also been canning the huge quantity of green tomatoes from my parent's and in law's gardens...made piccililly...pretty good for my first try, I think ! And you know what else? I have just been stopping and looking at my family and soaking them in...that is what feels like the most important thing for me to do.

ah, the tomatoes....

Look at this closet! Mike put up these shelves and racks and now we have so much more storage in the kitchen...


  1. 'Ah' when that chilled out feeling hits you then all you can do is go with the flow.
