Have you ever stopped to think about where your journey through life is taking you? To meet new people, to make new friends. To learn new things and practice the old. To be a good mom, wife daughter, sister, neighbor, parishiner, employee, role model. To lead and to follow. To be the best person you can be each and everyday. To love and be loved in return. These are some of the characteristics of my journey. I am happy to be able to say that I am having a most wonderful journey thanks to all the wonderful people I come in contact with. I wish all of you as wonderful a life as I am having. May you travel through your journey of life sampling all the wonderful gifts of this life and be a blessing to everyone you meet. Have a wonderful life!!!
It has been almost 5 months since I have posted anything here. Not because I have been away or lost access to the Internet (actually I did for a while) but because I don't make it a priority. I get concerned that I won't have anything interesting or catchy to say. So what have been doing for five months?
Stitching wise I have been participating in two RRs and three exchanges. Personally, the school year was very busy, my DD came back from London, and I am enjoying having her home for the summer. I am working this summer both teahing and in my new capacity as an undergraduate coordinator. I am also doing household projects I didn't get to do during the school year.
I have gotten a book on how to modify your blog so I will look to update the look of mine in the next couple of weeks. I also am doing the 101 things to do in 1001 days and will probably publish my list soon and track it.
I signed up for three BNU courses and realize that three is too many so will probably only do two. When they offer the third one again I will sign up again and do it then. I was concerned that they wouldn't offer them again and I can tell from some of the comments that courses are offered multiple times. i also registered yesterday to go to CSNF in Toronto this coming October. I am really excited to be going because I will get to meet and see so many of my online stitching friends and hopefully take a couple of classes with TW and JAS.
So as you can see I keep myself busy. There are three weeks left to my summer then Freshman Orientation starts at my university and the school year begins again. I am going to enjoy each and everyday of the remainder of my summer and head into the school year with great expectations and a high level of excitement.
Since I have been away for so long I will have plenty to post so I will get started tomorrow with my blog renovations and showing you some of what I have been up to . Have a lovely day!!!
Some of my favorite things are my family, teaching, sunshine, warm weather, books, chocolate kisses, my husband's kisses, my children's and grandchildren's hugs, cross stitching, needlepoint, and other needle arts. My goal this year is to continue developing my fitness so I can enjoy my family , my work, and my hobbies. This is truly a wonderful life and I want to savor it each and every day.
