Good morning Friends,
I hope you are gently unwinding from the Christmas holidays, and hope your new year celebrations will be nice ones.
I want to thank everyone who follows my blog, and all who leave comments. I look forward to new year of visiting with you at your blogs and sharing what’s happening here in our little compound.
The ‘aromatherapy tree’ has turned brown, and will come down tomorrow. It was a nice treat while it lasted. Glad it wasn’t in our cottage dropping needles like crazy. Our little indoor decorated tree will come down on the 1st. I left it up because I really love the lights and sparkle and sweetness of the ornaments. It will be nice to get it all packed away again, and won’t take any time at all this year.
DH painted more floor tiles in the caravan yesterday. He took a break this past week. He also did some tree trimming yesterday and there’s more to do as this is all hanging over our driveway from the neighbor’s trees to the east of us and it is getting out of hand. They are lovely, but they are a pain in the rear, and they just keep on growing and growing.
Today is my last day of work for this year. I am so thankful for my job and that things are doing better there. Thank you for all of your prayers, they are much appreciated. We are hoping for a better 2012.
I’m crocheting, learning needle tatting, looking forward to being in the TAST project, am ready to embroider and bead again. DH has helped me set up a spread sheet so that I can keep track of materials, etc. for my little Etsy shop. I’ve got to take pictures, edit, upload, and list of items I’ll be selling in there and that’s going to take some time. Gardening is never done down here, so there is plenty for me to do outside.
Here are some pictures, which may be the last ones posted for this year.
This first few pictures are of Mm. Laurette Messimy.
I blew this up and loved the look.
May you all have a wonderful 2012 filled with many blessings.
Love and hugs ~ FlowerLady
