Busy as a Bee
It has been ultra busy around here as of lately. I have been gleaning ideas from a lot of the blogs on here, big mistake! I feel as though I am in creative over load right now! I started a blanket last month and thought for sure I'd be done by now. Just teaching myself how to crochet took a little time and practice, but I think I've got it down now. The blanket is thick, very warm and I can't wait to finish it up.
Problem is I keep adding more projects and they are now building up on me. As Penni says - "Make her Stooooop!" I laugh every time I hear her say that!
I have been trying to put together a year long curriculum for the Sunday school program at church to make teaching the little ones not only easier, but a blessing to both teachers and students as well. Not to mention I have been teaching on Sunday mornings again and that is pretty time consuming as well. I started a cross stitch project that is going to take a while to finish up and I hope I still want it after I am finished with it. I have been scrapbooking some more with friends and also was given a really cool gift I am duplicating for future gifts. I am going to post how to make it here soon - it is adorable! It is in the picture above with the ribbons hanging off the ends. Made out of coin envelopes. Thank-you Julie!
I have a stack of books I can't wait to finish up but have been working on study questions for the book we are doing together in our reading group.
Today I am working on a care package for Alison and her room mates and it is adorable - would love to share pictures but she reads this blog so not showing that one...lol
Sometimes it's hard for me to see the big picture and I tend to single out what is wrong with my life...not organized enough, to many things to do and not enough time to do it in, missing the kids around here all the time, time going by way to fast, overwhelmed by the paper work of our business and the office etc, etc, etc....
But I am learning to recognize that I will never be able to get this time back; I must enjoy every single day. I am finding myself not longing for the good old days as much anymore, because these really are the good old days, right here, right now!
So for now, I am truly enjoying this big pile of fun things and dropping the overwhelming feelings of not being caught up - for today anyway.
