I have been AWOL lately. Life has once again got in the way with my blog. But have no fear, I am back. The latest move has really taken a toll on me. I managed to get everything moved, a few rooms painted and ready for Christmas.
I must admit that with only a week between the arrival of the last of our things and family arriving for Christmas, December was more hectic than usual. I got to spend a week with my dad, sister, brother-in-law, and niece. This is the first time in long while we have all been together for Christmas. While there are still lots of boxes to sort through, everything worked out. And to my nieces delight, I was able to put up the big tree this year and not “The World’s Cheapest Christmas Tree“. It was the best Christmas I have had in a long time. The old saying proved true this year, “it’s not what’s under the tree but those around it.”
As 2013 comes to a close, I cannot help but look back over the past 364 days. Last year at this time, I asked “what is it that I do best?” Obviously, this is outside of my roles as wife, mother and homeschool teacher, but what is it that I do best. I still love to cook and my passion for that continues to grow. My interest in knitting is growing and my skills are improving. This is all due to your encouragement. Thank you for taking the time to read my post. For those who follow me, thank you!
I am excited about what the new year holds. So good bye 2013 and HELLO 2014.
