Been a long time comin'!

We finally took the plunge!!! The last time we bought a brand new car was 25 years ago. We've owned a few used ones in those years, of course. But now that used cars can cost almost as much as new cars, we decided to finally take the plunge and buy a new vehicle!!! There was only one non-negotiable that I needed wanted and that was a remote starter. I've been spoiled since my husband surprised me with one a couple of years ago for Christmas in the car we just traded in :(   So, in these cold Northeastern winters, you can see why I'm spoiled and why this was a non-negotiable!!! Can't wait to pick her up this week!

Holy Moly Batman!

I love that phrase!!!!!! I say it quite a bit. I also say WOW, I don't get it, Arghh, you can do that?, you've got to be well as other phrases on a regular basis. I say these things when I'm excited, frustrated, confused and a variety of other emotions.

Tonight I'm saying Holy Moly Batman just because I can't believe I've finished another ornament to get ready to ship in between working, laundry, and a zillion other things. (I wonder how many zeroes there are in a zillion?)

Here she is!

Can It Be?

Can it really be November 8th already? My last post was about longing for a simpler pace of life, enjoying quiet time, spending more time doing what I love. Hah!!! The only thing I can think of is "wishful thinking"! The more I want things to slow down, the more things tend to get hectic and frantic!!!!

On a better note, I was able to spend some much needed time with my grandchildren. That is what helps my life slow down. They are 100% of my focus, I forget everything else around me and have a reason to PLAY!!! Truth be told though, I wear myself out - not getting any younger you know :) So after they left yesterday my day was spent not leaving the house, spending time resting and relaxing, trying to nap (that never works) and I did create a little ornament for a swap I'm participating in!!!

So, truth be told - my life was simpler if only for a few hours!

Here's a pic of the ornament I finished yesterday. You can find purchase info by clicking on the photo.
