My, my, my…

Well, I am back! After what feels like ages, I am tapping at the keys and here to fill you in on what a busy – insert the word “unfocused” here – person I have been.

I have finally finished some carriers for my Etsy shop: Petz Couture. They are awesome and I hope they find a good home soon!

A good friend of mine is about to have her third child. A little girl this time and I’ve knitted and crocheted some darling dresses for her. I absolutely LOVE making baby things! They are soft and small and will be filled up with a sweet new baby. Yes, I love babies and, no, I don’t want to have another. I look back on my days with five small children and wonder now how the hell I did it?! I know for sure I can’t do it now. I like sleep way too much to go back to those sleep-deprived years.

BIG NEWS: We have decided to move somewhere warm. It’s been something my husband has talked about over the years, but I was resistant…until now. I think I’ve hit that age where I realize I’m not getting any younger and life is to be lived in the now. Putting things off is so easy to do, yet sometimes the day never comes when you actually fulfill those wishes and wants. So we are living in the “now” and planning our next adventure. Details to come…

But what I am most looking forward to at this very moment is a vacation with one of my daughters to Florida to see family and soak up some sun!!! Spring break on the beach is a dream come true. Can’t wait until it’s just a Tuesday on the beach, you know?! Soon it will be a daily event with my family. This makes me happy and excited for our future!

I will be posting some giveaways as we get closer to our move. I’m packing light and keeping it simple for this adventure. Plus, I like paying-it-forward when I can.

Wishing you a wonderful day and a peaceful night!




Busy! It’s the four-letter word that describes my life right now.

Man-oh-man, have I been busy! It’s one thing after another. Relationship difficulties, dog having puppies, children in a car accident(but thankfully walk away unharmed), sketchy neighbors, and more money going out than coming in…BUT, I have a roof over my head, good food in my belly, love of family and friends, and a smile on my face. So life is good even if I could write several novels about all the drama and feelings I’ve been through this last month. I can’t complain; I have my health which is better than money in the bank as far as I’m concerned!

Today I’m going to be thankful and focus on the positive in my life. Maybe by amplifying my focus on the good it will promote the great. I’ll let you know how that works out.
