Happy New Year-my reflections



Stopping in to wish everyone an awesome 2017

    As I approach 70 in just a couple more years-wow that is scary sounding lol-I am valuing each day more. I have always strived to accomplish something each day-but this year I will seriously continue to do that.
     More weaving, spinning, at least one quilt this coming year, a little gardening, reading-no longer feeling guilty about spending time for that-and just really take the time to take in and enjoy my surroundings that I too often take for granted-living here in the woods. Our deer visitors are back now that look for the corn I put out for them-we are up to a group of 5 to 7 now instead of just the mom and her twins of a year ago.
   I don't make promises in the beginning of the year to do things but I am seriously working on losing my extra weight this coming year which I am beginning to realize for most of us as we age just occurs but I will continue to fight that.
    I am up for jury duty from February through early May which already has me stressed out already with the chance of winter driving but hopefully that will go smooth and could turn into a new adventure.
    I will work more on tolerance and compassion for people that don't share my beliefs;for our country especially. wow this past election has really changed many people or perhaps just brought to the surface their very nasty side-we all have one for sure. I got dumped by a friend from yahoo 360 and multiply days-shocked I contacted her and asked why and she told me it was political--that is such a sad way to view life in my opinion. So instead of staying upset and taken aback-I am changing my views to try to understand as this is happening all over our nation between many.
   I have seen many elections come and go and I don't remember a time like this-such drastic view differences-mostly coming down to being independent and freedom from government interference or wanting the government to provide for you. My husband had a discussion with a 20 something person and was shocked with her views of wanting and expecting the government to take care of everything for her-free health free education and the list went on--wow she has no idea what that really means. anyways sorry I didn't mean to get into politics here at all but I think it is on all of our minds

   Happy New Year to all of you. Do you have any creative projects in mind for this new year??
