What I Did On My Christmas Vacation


It is back to work tomorrow. I had a week off between Christmas and New Years. I am not ready to go back, but ready or not, back I go. So how did I spend my vacation? First I got to read a few books. I had been in a dry spell of not reading so it was nice to get back to the books.

 And I watched a few old movies. I love old movies and stayed up late watching them.
 I dug out my hooking and have started back on this huge rug again. I need to get this finished.
 and oh yea we became grand parents!
We also got to visit with friends and family. So as you can see we packed a lot into one week.
new years resolutions??? Well the same as everyone. Lose weight, get organized, save money.
But what I really want to do is: have more people in for rug hooking and tea,
I want to be known as the best hugger ever.
I want to send more hand written notes to friends and family. Just to say hi or I was thinking of you today.
I want to laugh out loud every day.
 I will drop every thing to have fun.
I will count my many blessings everyday.
When I have to chose between things I will chose by saying " On my death bed will I be happy I chose this?" Because in the end that is all that really matters right?
I will finish this rug!!!!
Welcome to all my new followers! leave me a comment so I can find you.
A very happy new year to you all!!
