What a wonderful day.

Let's just pretend I'm posting this yesterday....what a wonderful day I had. My DH and I went to Michigan, boots on and ready for the field...I went and got gourds. I love getting gourds...stinking, moldy nasty things, but I love it. We were lucky as the rain in IN hadn't made it there yet so it was just crisp out. I ended up with 60, that should keep me busy for a while.

Then we went to visit our friends in Niles, how wonderful and giving they are, not just generous, but generous of heart. She is a wonderful watercolor artist, and the peaceful view, just sitting in her family room, drinking Pete's coffee (try it WONDERFUL), and look out into the woods with a beautiful pond and cascading water garden...tranquility at it's finest. I love finding moments like that. We are very lucky. AND she generously let me pick off her wall a painting of my was like CHRISTMAS all day long, but better, there was no expectation of the day, it just was, and wonderful it was at that.

I did find time to work too, in the truck on the drive, I'm almost done with 12 of my new little gals.
Smiles to All,

tired thursday eyes

Once again, I cannot believe another Thursday is here. I had a wonderful birthday this week on the 16th. Full of joy and kindness. AND...with age I have discovered the wonderment of "uneventful" and how fullfilling it can be!!. I do have enough to send out, just need to phot and pack them up, also, print out the new cards to go with each doll. I will post as soon as my rear is in total gear. Smiles to all. Brenda

I slept with my window open (just a smidge, but open)

Happy Thursday.

First off thanks to Saucy Chick for the great comfort dolls! It looks like I have enough to send out. YEA!!!

Yesterday I saw my first Robin of the season, I actually saw 3 of them. For those of you who don't live in the Midwest, that is our signal that Spring really is on the way. Nothing like the uplifting feeling the sight and the song of the Robin.

I was thinking about the Project last night, I had a wonderful evening with a dear friend. Somehow we got on the subject of being emotionally sensitive. I'm not talking about the crazies, I'm talking about that some people are more in tune with emotions and feelings that others are. It then led me to the phrase that (and I'm loosely quoting) "We are not human beings pursueing a spiritual life, we are spiritual beings pursuing a human life" It makes me wonder. If I look at it like that, then how wonderful this opportunity to be human can be, and should be, and it's my responsibility to be my best. No one else's best, just my best. Just thoughts that I have had in the past couple of days.'s so fun to come out of hibernation. I've included a pic of the glob of things I've been working on...I don't seem to be able to work on just one thing at a time...the creative it!

Thursday and it's Sunny in my neck of the woods

Hi all,
I have just been busy. (Not really with the comfort dolls, just with my life)I am busy finishing up the last batch of dolls I started working on. I decided not to start the art doll project until I cleaned up this last work (a foreign concept for me, actually finishing a project before starting a new)

I have not sent out our first batch, as I really want to send out a variety of dolls when I send out. I will say, Ann, my gosh! She has sent in, let me count.....over 45 dolls, they are wonderful...I'm waiting simply for variation. I hope you understand....Come on folks... Ann is kicking our bootees.

Smiles to all
I think I will make Thursday's my "Definetly joining to Post" Day
