With January behind me, I am getting ready for Valentines month, and have completed my new Valentines quilt for 2010. For a small table quilt it took me the month of January to complete. I did get a little side tracked because I signed up for a class in January and had homework before the class. Well unfortunately the class got cancelled after I started the homework. So returned to my valentine quilt and finally finished. One of my many favorites!

My husband helped me hang a design wall last night and I started to hang the quilt homework for the class I am taking in March. This quilt is not going to keep anyone warm, but display on my wall. Can't wait for the class!

Check out my family as I update my blog for February, they hang out with me in my room.

Hope you have a heart filled month in February!

Action Take 5:

Here my list, the five words that will keep my focus this year. They are not in any order, just key words to remind me. Today I was tested with # 3 Chill. Why you ask, my son comes home from school with lots of homework and I have had a long day. Dinner needs cleaned up because my dishwasher is at dance. Laundry needs done or we are going to run out of towels. My favorite shows are on at 9pm and I want to get everything done so I can watch them. Thursday night is really the only night of the week where I love to watch TV. Faced with all that needed to be done, I needed to CHILL abit and think about the important stuff and do as much as I can. Happy to say I didn't scream at him, just did one thing at a time and guess what it all worked out because it's 8:47 and I am getting my blog updated while clothes are in the dryer, everything else done and ready for my show. Good night!

Happy Birthday to me!

Yeap another year as gone by and looking forward to another year! This week has been my official take it easy week to celebrate my Birthday. My New Year doesn't begin on Jan 1 like everyone else, for me it really begins today. The way I look at it, is that this is the start of when my life began, so why not start fresh each year and make new goals and wishes as I blow out my candles for a fresh new year of goals and wishes to a super year. So today (actually this whole week) I celebrate my 45th year past and reflect on all the good things that happened that I have to be thankful for. I am healthy(with a few medical scares this year), have my job(with the threat of losing it), my kids are behaving (at least I think so), and my husband still loves me(I know so cause he shows it and tells me everyday).

So as I roll into tomorrow the first day of another year for me, I am looking forward to new adventures and things that I will be thankful for. I have made a list of 5 things that I will try and keep focus on. I don't want my years to go by where I wonder what did I do all year. I don't want it to be about work and home and work and home. So I am going to give the 5 things a try and see where they go.

PS. Got my favorite Carvel Ice Cream cake, and my favorite Carmel Creams. Lovin my new iPhone too.
