Good Afternoon Everyone,
We had a surprise this forenoon when it snowed so fast the grass, trees, and everything outside became white in a very short time. But soon after lunch time the sun came out a little and the new snow all melted away. Changes in the weather keeps the winter interesting.
Is everyone getting into their winter routine now that the holidays are past? I think I am and I believe the winter will go by pretty fast.
Last week the church Ladies had the monthly sewing day and they knotted 9 comforters. Hopefully those will help keep some needy person warm.
Greetings to all our great friends,
I guess this would be a good time to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I always love this time of the year with closure of the past and dawning of the new. It always brings memories of my late Dad. With Dad you never had to worry about the calendars in the house being changed from month to month because he would always go through the house the last day of the month and switch all the calendars with anticipation. I just loved that about him, always dreaming about what's coming and what could be better.
Some of the lessons I hope to learn from the past year.
--Enjoy the process of change because it's a part of life.
2014 was a year of change for my family, a big one being the expansion of the Ashery. Change is something I often find myself trying to hurry through so I can just get back to a new normal. Sort of like diving into a pool and holding my breath. Just get this under the water thing out of my way so I can enjoy the swim once I come up for air. Once I realize that the whole process of "under the water" can be enhanced with goggles, the time under the water becomes much more enjoyable. So much that I might even consider strapping on an oxygen tank so I can stay under longer.
It's exciting to start 2015 at the Ashery with a new expansion and lot's of new things to be developed. And we couldn't possibly experience it with anyone better then you.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon. It's been a little chilly but I hear this weekend it's going to feel like a heat wave. Come on out and see us.
