- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Ringing in the new....just in time
Hello friends and neighbors....
It seems like ages since I've blogged...as life unfolds itself in a very interesting way these days. I'm detoxing from the EX job very nicely, and the emotions of my last day behind me now. I went today for my exit interview and tohand in my id badge.
I'm settling in my new place, and feel welcomed and valued, a strange feeling as I have been berated and demeaned for years with the EX..my injuries are healing, and life has new possibilities and opportunities for me once more. I'm still working on that purse...I have to keep ripping it out...I'm going to finish though. It isn't that it is hard, but my focus is all over the place at the moment. Everything is still new, and as I ease into a somewhat normal life pattern of sleeping and eating again, I'm sure my focus will get re focused...
I'm not completely detoxed yet, and my thought patterns have to be adjusted as well as the speed with which I lived, everything was off kilter. I see that now. Clear as a bell.
Anyway...as I slow down, and I am on the road to simple, everything just fits now. God is good...he did answer my prayers that I said over and over again, he felt my suffering and anquish,and sent me a breath of fresh air, and a soft place to land.
I see why now...all the no's I received with all the "other" jobs, for he had this one in mind for me. I couldn't have picked a better one myself...
I'm rambling....stay with me though...I'll get back on track....
Moving the hook today...the starling purse I'll get it done.
I planted some Zinnia seeds, and they have sprouted...such simple joy...maybe next week, I can get out into my little garden, looking forward to that...
