Whats Been Happening

      This is a picture of my son the day he moved out.   for some reason every picture I took at that time is blurry and shows motion in the picture.  
      My son moving out has had some different effects on me.  I began learning about perspective and how we as people chose to look at the world.  This new way of understanding, I think has helped me through my son's decision to move out at 18 before he finished high school.
       I could not remember my log in information which is why I have not blogged in a while although I have had info to share and crochet projects that I have been working on to share with my crochet friends and followers.
       I am presently working on obtaining my bachelors degree and my projected date of completion is August 2013.  The crochet projects have really taken a back seat because of the continual progression through classes and the choice to spend some of my time on other projects and casual computer gaming.  
       Some of the projects I have been working on are: landscaping, redecorating, and cooking.   I have been working steadily on my favorite backyard project the dry creek bed.
      The redecorating is going on in what used to be my son's room.  I have patched holes and painted the walls with primer and scraped the popcorn off the ceiling.  I am envisioning a mild yellow paint and a complimenting yellow and large art deco style print wall paper on one wall.  The curtains for the window I have not yet been able to pin down.  Of course I also plan on redoing the adjoining bathroom the same color but have not even primed the walls yet.
        Cooking,  I am watching Italian cooking shows and have enjoyed cooking some of the dishes that have made my water.  Fanny thing is my husband who would never eat an artichoke heart has!  I had made this dish with stuffed shells and it called for cutting up artichoke hearts and putting it into the mixture of meat and cheese and stuffing it into the shells. 
      He loved it,  so I am having a good time with that and I am still in school making straight A's and constantly working on my perspective. Gardening which is a passion of mine and something I do even when crochet has been my other hobby full time.  I am a giant kid and I never want to grow up, I enjoy doing the things I do and I believe this is how I need to live my life.  Who wants to be so bogged down in a job that tires them to the point they are unable to do the things they love?  That is no way to live, just saying.

  1. Hi all, I am at the point of completion with school because I will graduate October 6,2013. I am super excited about beginning a new chapter in my life.

    The new chapter is working a job I will enjoy and find a lot of pleasure in doing.

    On another note, I am scheduled to show case some of my crochet work for sale at an upcoming event in Lakeland.
    My dry creek bed is also posted on Pintrest and it is almost finished. :)
    I also wanted to mention to anyone who is interested: that the Boktower gardens is having a plant sale Oct 19 2013. there are plenty of walk ways and scenic views at the Bok Tower Gardens and I suggest if your interested in flowering plants and butterflies you should definitely go.
