Gotta Get Moving

So, a long time ago, in a far away place, I used to love to do crafts.  I learned how to crochet, did cross stitch and tried my hand at various other crafty things that included glue guns and burnt fingers.  I even sewed a quilt with my mom and made a few pillows.   It seems that in the past 7 or 8 years, my crafty projects have taken a back seat to Facebook and the internet and reality TV.  I want to change that (she types on her blog on the Internet, ha ha).  I've got lots of yarn to to crochet and several projects started.  So, this week I am declaring an all out war on my time.  I'm not going to spend it all online, I'm going to spend some time with a hook and some yarn. 

I've pinned so many fun crafty ideas on my Pinterest boards.  Have I done any of them?  That would be a negative answer.  Do I want to do a few of them, yes!  I have photos that I want to put up on my walls, a stairwell to decorate. 

So, I'm going to start this plan tonight.  I promise.  I'm going to go get some yarn right now....

The first post of the new year, finally!

Well, posting in the new year certainly hasn't been something I've excelled at, now has it?  It's been a strange start to this year.  We've had rain and snow and a leaky roof.  I've worked from home as much as the office during all the storms.  Today it is in the 40s and I wish this would stay like this.  But the calendar tells me there are at least a couple more months of winter.  Thankfully the leak only lasted a day and today's temperatures and B's shoveling has given us a clean roof.

I finally put my nativity away yesterday.  I still have a few snowmen out, they hate to go back in their box til at least February!  Today I've been watching the US National ice skating competition.  I was so bummed to learn this was going on in Boston!  We could have hopped the train and been there!  Darn ice storm.

So, what else can I tell you about 2014 in this very random post.  I'm walking on the treadmill, counting calories and doing a 30 day squat push up challenge.  My resolution was to floss everyday again this year.  I blew it last year, so I thought I'd try it again.  So far, so good!

2014 holds three trips for us that we know of.  We sat down a couple of nights ago and wrote down some things we want to get done this year.  New doors, new fans and lights in a couple of rooms.  It's going to be a busy year, but it promises to be a fun one!
