New Dawn.....New Day.....New World

Well here we are another year is almost in the bag. Although it hasn't been a great year, it hasn't been all that bad either. Our Family is healthy, happy, relatively well adjusted to the world and life in general.

I am still working, beading, quilting, reading and feeling good. I haven't lost 20#, but I have gained 20# either.

Our computer crashed two weeks ago, but I had purchased a new laptop in July and we will be using it until we decide if we really need a new desk top computer.

Our life is stable, quiet and safe, just the way we like it.

I am ashamed of the conditions in our country and ashamed of the politicians we have elected to govern. Neither party is better or worse than the other, they just don't get the fact that they were elected to do the best possible job for The United States of America, not the political party, special interests or religious convictions that they personally subscribe to.

At midnight tonight, I will be wishing in the New Year with a prayer that God will guide, direct and bless my family, my country and my world. Love to All!!!!

What we've Been Doing....

Well here it is again months later, can't seem to get back into the grove of posting. But we have been working on a new room addition, so I do have an excuse. The following pictures are of the new sun room. We have been enjoying the room for the past few weeks.

The pictures are dark, because of the light from all the windows....dah! Oh well you will get the idea.....

We have two matching rocker recliners......don't you just love how OLD people think of resting and napping when they decorate.

The ceiling was fun to put up, barn siding, and all the trim match the rest of the house.

You can see what I plan to do in the sun room along with watching the birds.......

The following pictures are a few of the bead projects that I have finished in the last couple months.

Wow Time Really Does Fly

Can't believe it has been almost a year since I posted here last. There really isn't any excuse for the absence, now that I look back on the past 10 months there were things I could have written about and pictures I could have posted, but it just didn't happen.

The following pictures are of the items I have beaded in the past three weeks. All are from published patterns, either magazine or internet. I know I should give names and publications, but I'd have to find the patterns, and that would take time that I could use to write and add more pictures. Like the one of Tobis in his sled..... or in his Santa Hat......

First has a seat belt. Or should I say passenger restraint system.

Tobis is now 14 months old, he walks, talks and has more teeth than some people my age. He still has the big blue eyes and the huge smile. He is a world traveler, he went to visit his maternal grandparents in Denmark in September. And he knows the words for several things in both languages, water, shoe, snow and some others we won't talk about here. Hint....what are some of the first words you learned in a foreign language, the ones not in the books.

Can't promise I'll be back soon, but I will try to post more often in 2011 than in 2010.....
