In Need of Coasters

Please tell me I'm not the only one who just got Christmas all put away? Please. I have a terrible habit of leaving it up FOREVER. One year it was March before I actually got it all put away. I know, pathetic. Not sure what my hang-up is about it. But, this year, I did manage to do it while it was still January.

This morning I realized that I no longer had a coaster to put my morning coffee on. I had been using the fabric Christmas ones that my mother had sewn up for me (which are awesome). But, alas, they were all packed safely away. However, I knew that the thing I needed to do to fix this dilemma was to drop everything (except the coffee) and grab my yarn and hook. I found a multi-colored cotton yarn in my stash and proceeded to whip out a small wagon wheel big enough for my cup to go on. I love the colors and my mug fit nicely on top of it. Dilemma solved! Now that I've got my emergency mug wheel, I can think about stitching up some variations. "ADD THAT TO THE TO-DO LIST!!!" Ha!

So far, on this overcast Saturday morning, this and two loads of laundry is all I have accomplished. Oh, yes, and I also managed to get out of bed :). Now to think about the rest of the day. Looking forward to spending a late afternoon/evening with my B.F.F. and our two families.

New Year

Happy New Year!!!

The family and I went to an amazing New Year's Day brunch at a good friend's house today. It was startling to realize that another year has passed and my oldest is now 8 years old - yikes!

As with every new year, people keep asking me if I have made any New Year's Resolutions. To be honest I haven't and I'm probably not going to. I'm going to trust in God to refine the parts that need work and make sure I'm in His Word daily so that I'm open to His prompting. Not a resolution - just a willingness.

Tomorrow, we start back on our full schedule of schooling and regular activities. It will be nice to get back into the groove of things after having a whirlwind of a holiday season. They were enjoyable, but a bit exhausting. Now we can buckle down and focus on our studies and think of fun projects to add to the mix. 

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and continue to have a wonderful New Year!
