I think I'm back

It's been a long couple of weeks.  I haven't been doing much more than sleeping and getting a few things done.  I made a purse that I wasn't happy with, but my Mother in Law liked it so she took it home.  It was really inexpensive to make.  Thrift shopping rocks.  I got 30% off the ticket price!!

I have enough fabric to make another and it's actually cut out and sitting on my sewing table to make another one.  I learned how to make an inside zippered pocket thanks to a great tutorial.

I sat yesterday and watched the finals of the Tim Horton's Brier and made a bunch of earrings and a few other pieces too!

I'm still here

My depression has been brutal for the last few weeks...Here's a bullet post of things I've been doing!
  • Watching the Tim Horton's Brier
  • Sewing!  Pictures to follow soon
  • of the bad things about depression
  • We've had weekend company so that has kept me busy
  • My stove has been moved from one side of the kitchen to the other...that means the reno's have begun
There is more I'm sure, I'll update properly soon!! Until then here is something from my sister!

Read it, learn it, live it.

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.

Ten on Tuesday

Ten on Tuesday today is 10 Favorite Smells!!
  1. A baby just out of the bath tub.  Nothing smells sweeter!
  2. Lilacs.  Nothing says June like the smell of Lilacs in the air
  3. Any kind of baking.  The house smells delicious when anything is baking in the oven
  4. Sheets that have been dried on the clothesline.  A good nights sleep is almost guaranteed
  5. Fresh cut grass
  6. Coffee brewing.  I don't drink coffee, but love the smell
  7. My grandmother's laundry.  I don't know if it's a combination of her water, detergent and fabric softener, but her clean laundry smell is amazing.  I have a t shirt of my grandfather's in a zip lock bag.....
  8. Wood burning.  A fireplace in the fall or a campfire in the summer
  9. Roses, especially wild roses
  10. Mud...only in the spring.  It's the smell that tells me that spring is really here!
