First order of business, the giveaway.
There were 60 comments, but 5 of those were doubles.........I know you're just trying to keep me on my toes. So I used 55 as the total. The random.org spit out number TWENTYONE, which means that LONA of Farming in the Shade is the winner.
Please go to my web site, Lona, and pick out a dish towel, and email me with your address and I will send it right out to you. Congrats!!!!!
I know that today is typically a resolution kind of day, but I am not going there. Resolutions are made to be broken mostly, at least that's the way it seems.
Instead, I prefer today to make observations, and then take them forward into the horizon of the new year.
Some of the things I have taken note of in 2013:
Pain is a great leveler, and puts so much into perspective. Teaches humility.
Having my three daughters was hands down the best thing I ever did. Best. Thing. Ever.
I will never be a "master weaver", and that's ok. I just want to explore my own natural propensity for playing with color and texture, and see what happens. I want weaving to be like a song in my head, one that brings joy.
I don't need another job. Working non stop is highly overrated. Taking time off is necessary.
Friends should be chosen wisely, to prevent serious disappointment.
Pleasing myself isn't as hard as I thought. There are so many ways.
My gene pool is just fine, in fact I am mostly grateful for the one I got. Wildly intense DNA or not.
I hate having two houses. I want to live and weave in just one house. Someday it will happen.
The length of our lives is a crap shoot, it is time to plan for that eventuality. Put it in writing. Set it down for the future.
I love my Nutri Bullet. I plan to take it with me wherever I go. Green shakes rock.
Dogs belong on the bed, or the sofa, not the floor. That's just the way it is.
Babies make everything better.
Happy New Year everyone........may 2014 be incredibly awesome.
