Competition and Connection

Good morning and Happy Sunday! Scarves are drying and projects for April and May are getting finished which makes me feel good. Next up is creating a plan to get life rolling, but first some of yesterday and how today is not a normal Sunday here. Yesterday Serra participated in the State tournament for Science Olympiad. While she personally was not happy with her individual scores she did place in the top ten in all three of her events. Also her team at Preston placed 3rd! Another Preston team took 1st place and will represent the state of Colorado at the National competition in New York in June. I'm very happy that Serra wants to participate again next year as...

Happy Spring!!

Good Morning! Happy Easter, Ostara, Spring, Libra Full Moon or what ever else you might be calling this holiday of renewal and rebirth you might be celebrating today. As for me I simply didn't want to get out of bed as clean sheets, a gentle breeze and the green buds on the tree outside my window made for a cozy morning. What did I do this week? Let's see.... I finished weaving the purple tangle you saw last week. It is currently in the finishing/blocking pile along with a Monet piece, sample hat and silk shawl. Got started on something that I hope will work and become a unique part of my offerings. Susan and I are finally getting along...

Consistency and colors

Happy Sunday Internetland! I went to bed last night thinking "What am I going to talk about tomorrow morning?" and woke with a head full of possibilities. Wonderous what a good night's sleep can do. This last week's moods and accomplishments were much like the weather we had in the Fort, unpredictable. Some days bright and sunny, full of hope and potential and others back into hibernation and a bit of doubt with the mini blizzard we had. My moods don't always follow the weather but last week was certainly a reflection of them. I did finish the Monet inspired piece that Flynn was working on, got started on a purple piece with Rapunzel, delivered some finished samples to My...

Spring, a clear head and dreams

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It is a beautiful bright day here in the Fort. Maybe, hopefully, possibly spring has finally arrived, slept with the window slightly open and it was glorious. I hope that it sticks around for a while instead of instantly sunbaking us with summer. I'm also very glad to be feeling like myself again after an intense round of antiviral meds to take care of an eye infection. I think the side effects of the meds were worse than the actual symptoms but it's good that I followed my instincts and had it looked at as my vision is affected. So, what did I do this last week? Well in between bouts of naps from the...

The Mundane and the Magical

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! The laundry is spinning and clean dishes have been put away. Sunday is one of those limbo type days that sits outside of standard time for me because of how we spend it. Sundays are both ends of the circle here, finishing out tasks from the week before and preparing for the week ahead. Things have felt very cyclical lately and in some ways that's good. Routine gives balance and security that establishes an expected foundation. You always know what's coming. However I will admit that sometimes it's also horribly boring, especially when I don't see the baby step progress that I'm hopefully making. This last week was not one of those! This last week...
