• Creative in 2016

    There are few different things I want to work on this year, and being more creative in 2016 is one of them.  I’m learning a new way of knitting, I have a class to learn tatting, I want to cross stitch more and work my photography. Do you like taking taking classes for learning new crafts?  I’ve joined Craftsy and I am already taking their Continental knitting class, and I have their Tatting class waiting for me.  But I’ve also found some free, online classes for my photography.  I much prefer free.  😀  I want to start doing more things like this to relax, decompress and just rest. Right now,…

  • Are you creative?

    I read an article last week about adults who color and how good it is for us.  Yes, as in using a coloring book.  The article suggested that it is not only a way to be creative and use our imaginations, but it helps with our stress levels too.  I can totally agree with that statement, because I do love to color.  I have adult versions of a color by number, I’m on the second out of four pictures on that one.  And I have a straight coloring book for adults, though I want to get more.  This is the page I just finished coloring. Now personally I prefer using…

  • Simple Woman’s Daybook ~ 3/29

      FOR Sunday March 29th Outside my window…Blue, clear skies with a slight breeze.  Much better than yesterday when we were in a dust storm warning.  Yes, this time of year we get real bad winds, between 30 – 50 mph, but we also have a lot of farms that have been recently plowed.  When that happens, we get dust storm warnings and possible road closures.  We never open our windows on days like that. I am thinking…About my blog posts I want to write for the week, what photos I want to share and what I should make for dinner tonight. I am thankful…For friends.  We finally made it…

  • Simple Woman’s Daybook ~ 3/22

      FOR Sunday March 22 Outside my window…Bright blue skies mid 60’s.  I am really enjoying this weather.  I think I’ll get outside and take some photos today. I am thinking…That I need to make more time in my life for photography.  I’m really missing it, but my days seem to fly by.  I need to slow them down and enjoy my hobby more. I am thankful…That Paul blessed me with photography equipment a couple of years ago.  Though I don’t always use it as much as I hoped I would, it’s so great that it’s there for me whenever I want to use it. In the kitchen…I made corned…

  • It’s been hot lately

    Yes, I know, terrible title, but honestly, I just couldn’t come up with a fun one.  🙂  But that statement is true, it has been hot lately.  Then we got a couple of cooler days, and today was a scorcher again.  But we are in our cooling off pattern now.  Where before we had weeks of mid to high 90’s with the occasional 80’s thrown in, we are now in the pattern of 80’s with and occasional 90 thrown in.  But it’s still beautiful weather, and I do enjoy the 80’s.  Warm enough to do fun things outside, but not so warm you need the a/c.  🙂 The kids and…
