A few facts on Friday

Hello again,
 So what did we do on our sabbatical you ask?  

Well - believe me - you sure have more hours in the day when you don't spend most of them admiring things on Pinterest.

I read tons of books: 
The whole Cat Who series as well as a good number of the Mrs. Murphy Mysteries.
I also read a series  the Ocean Breeze Novels by Sherryl Woods

I cleaned my house up real good and worked on some of the front yards landscaping issues

I even did a little crafting;.

I bought this paper mache mannequin at an auction the summer of 2012  - I finally got her finished

I made this super cute fairy outfit for my grand niece, for her birthday.
They said she loved it.   So I'm glad

And if your wondering what Genghis did. - - just take a look at the top of this picture.  He would just wear himself out snoopervising and have to catch a nap or two or three.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Back to School

Hello everyone,

     I know!   It's been awhile since last I posted - but that doesn't mean, I didn't think of all of you.  I was taking a sabbatical from the computer.  I really needed to set better boundaries and priorities for myself.  Spent too much time on the computer and not enough time on anything else.  For now Genghis and I are back on a trial basis - to see if I can avoid all the distractions the Internet offers.  You know what I mean - Like Pinterest to name only one. 

     School started yesterday - in my neck of the woods - so I thought it only fitting that my first post should be along that same train of thought.
