Poor excuse for a blogger...

Well its been awhile since I posted on my blog.  No excuses.  I just didn't.  I really need to make
this part of my routine so that it becomes habit.  With that said, I think I'll just talk about
what I did do. 

Martha's influence visited my kitchen in the form of organizing my cooking utensils in a few
different pitchers.  I think it looks pretty cute.  It took my husband well over a week to
realize that I had make that little change.  I guess it felt huge to me.

Since I last blogged, I also finished crocheting an afghan and actually sewed together an
afghan that I knitted over a year ago.  It felt great to get that bag of yarn out of our office
and out into the family room to actually be used.  I have such a huge stash of yarn that I
hope to make afghans out of all of it until its gone.  You know its bad when you have
to keep your yarn in the attic because you have no other space because of all of your
other crafting supplies all over the house.

My husband and I have the most unique anniversary, Valentine's Day.  This year
we decided to go away to a very nice resort, The Alderbrook Resort in Union, Wa.

We had a very nice time.  It was very relaxing and peaceful.  The food was wonderful and so was
the service.  I highly recommend it if you are need of a night or two away.  We even woke up to a beautiful rainbow, which was very nice considering all the rain we have been having (of course we do live in the Pacific Northwest and that's kind of par for the course here).

That was enough to put a smile on my husband's face and mine too.

But as with all things, our little escape came to an end and it was back to reality.  My next focus is to
work on cleaning up my beading table/room.  I have a Bead Soup that needs to get cooking and I don't think I have any space to do any work.  Although I will say that I find it equally challenging to create in a neat area.  I need to create an organized, clutter that feeds my creativity and lets me walk around my bead room without tripping over things.

I am vowing to write again. tomorrow.  Til then......

Sounds like not only did you accomplish a lot, but you have a lot still on your plate! Take time for rest!
