Yee Haw!!!!

It’s been one heck of a ride. Looking back through my posts of 2011 actually made me tired. It has been one crazy kind of year. I’ve accomplished a lot and learned many things. I supose that’s all a person can really ask for.

My hope for the new year? Just a tad bit of serenity. I don’t see it on the calendar so I’m going to start penciling it in. Next week, for instance, do not call, write, or stop by. I will not answer. I have a week-long date with the loom room. If you bother me, you’d best be bleeding profusely.

After that, all heck breaks loose again. I’ll be back to school part-time. I’ve committed to blogging for GRIT magazine at least once a week. My son is graduating. My daughter is getting married. And that, of course, doesn’t’ even begin to include life here on the farm.

Buckle up and hang on, this ride doesn’t stop.

Happy New Year, everyone.

Oh, me!! I hadn't thought of Grit since I was a kid!! Always loved when it came, cause I'd read anything I could get my hands on. I'm looking forward to your posts there, as well as here.

Happy New Year!!

I'll have to remember to pencil in some serenity for myself too! Have a lovely date with the loom.
Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year, Christine. Congrats on the Grit gig. Maybe we can do a retreat together this year. Would love it. Will you be at Billie Creek this year?

Enjoy your quiet time in the loom room and congrats on the blogging for Grit, guess I will have to check it out, with so many magazines I have avoided that one ... so far.

If it is open, Karen, I'll be there. That's a big if.

Yowza...you *do* have a lot going on. Sheesh. I need a nap after reading that long list of BIG EVENTS (*love* how celebratory they all are, though!) fast approaching in your life.
Okkkk....I was totally going to drop in next week, buuuuuuuuttttt, since you told me not to (and I'm not a fan of bleeding profusely), I'll reschedule for another time.
lol

Christine, if BCV is open, let me know. I have that herb garden to work on. Be on the lookout for a retreat not too far from home.

My oldest sister would say to her youngest daughter (a bit of a middle of the night whiner about EVERY LITTLE thing)don't bother me unless there's blood....well of course one night she fell out of bed and busted her head open. My sister hasn't lived it down!
