Where did this week go? Sorry it's been so long since my last post. I can't believe the weekend is here again already. I am really starting to enjoy both my retirement and our empty nest. Who knew you could clean house on Tuesday and it would still look spiffy on Saturday?
While I still get a little lonely at times, I can honestly say I am loving my life right now. Thank you for praying for me during this time of transition.
I hope you don't mind me showing you a couple of little dresses I put together this week. I have fallen in love with my sewing machine again and just can't seem to pull myself out of my studio.
I hope to clean up all the strings and restore order in there this weekend. It promises to be a sunny couple of days and I want to take some pictures of the whole studio to share with you. I was smart enough to take before pictures this time so you will really be able to see the transformation.
Besides sewing, I went to see The Descendants with two of my BFF's this week (aside from George Clooney, it was a hard movie to sit through) and I have finally finished reading Ann Voskamp's "one thousand gifts" nearly one year after I started it. I think God knew that I would need it more now than earlier and he held it for this time in my life on purpose. It has been transforming. If you haven't read it, find a copy and be blessed.
My oldest daughter is in town and is taking me to lunch and to see "The Vow" today, so you can see it's been a very full week.
I am so thankful for what I have, not focusing on what is gone, looking forward to what's to come and exceedingly full of joy and it feels wonderful.
Spring is definitely in the air.
