Crazy as a Loom

Freezing rain this morning.
More snow tomorrow.
Reminding me not so subtly that I don't want to be here in March either.

So drinking my coffee, I am thinking of sunshine, think sharing some photos of that would make you a lot happier, and I know it will make me a lot happier.

While I overall did not care for Florida, I did love the sunshine.
So did my kids when they came to visit.

My grandsons are almost 14, and almost 17.  I can't believe how big they've grown.

My grandaughters are only a year apart, but one is tall, the other tiny.
They love each other so.

Daughter #1 and daughter #2, having fun at the beach.

 Someone is a drama queen.

Hmm, when your 10 year old daughter carries you piggyback, the world has shifted.

 Now there, wasn't that better than the frigid view out my window??

I long for spring, and just hope that we don't launch right into summer, without having a chance to warm up slowly.  Watching the earth do that is very special.

This morning I emailed a customer, and said NO to some custom rugs they wanted me to make.
I have been mulling it over for days.
Finally, I woke up and it was clear.
The order was too picky, it wasn't going to be fun, there wasn't enough money in the world to make it fun, and I don't want to do it.
Stop cheering, Lois.
Yes, you were right.

The ability to just say NO is the most liberating thing.

Your family is so beautiful. I hope it warms up soon enough .. and slowly like you said. We don't need flooding.. there's still that much snow around here.

Good for you for you NO decision. Picky is never fun.

Hilary, I just don't know how you do it ...
how you Crack Me Up when you yourself are trying so hard
to Not crack up! Good on ya, gal !!
And an excellent decision it seems, to Not make those rugs. Keep on the straight-and-narrow towards feeling well & strong ...

All best wishes from a rainy, gray, and very Muddy tiny Washington state island - thrumming fingers for spring over here, too ;>/

I am cheering too!

At your decision, at your photos, at the happiness here.

Take care, Hilary ~

yay ... good on you for not taking on an order that would be less than fun to produce .. toonman is learning this as well ... he often gets job requests and takes them then procrastinates about getting them done because he is not 'feeling the love' ...
