Winter is here

The last three weeks have turned into a blur. I worked my butt off at work doing overtime, got a small chest cold, took a week long vacation in Washington [state] with my boyfriend, and now back home with a lingering cold. I’ve had my blog in the back of my head, but I was distracted and unfocused. But despite being sick and winter looming here in Alaska [it snowed while we were out of state] both my boyfriend and I are doing well. I even set up a corner for my beading with a table I found at Goodwill last night!

The vacation was much needed, though my boyfriend thought he’d be bored all week. In the end he had a great time and clicked with my family [minus my sister, but that’s a story by itself]. He even danced with my aunt Wanda who doesn’t dance. It was a lovely visit. Though I wish more of my family members could have stopped by to say hi. I carved several pumpkins and roasted the seeds next to a warm fire pit outside. The one person who I really wanted to see ended up being too busy and I was getting sick again , so we’ll have to try again next time.


My corner of peace,

Next to the window and in front of the fire,

Beads aligned with needles near by,

Every color imaginable plus more.

Fresh needles and thread and a place for finished earrings,

My spot draws me in and I am happy to bead again.


I’m so excited to have my corner! I’ve been wanting to create one for awhile now. As well as beading, I am wanting to write more letters, so I have the supplies in the corner as well. Life is well.
