Five Things Friday…

It’s been a while, let’s see if I can get back into this shall we?

Walter’s obsession…

1. Walter LOVES watching the birds at our feeder… we are absolutely plowing through bird feed in these cold temperatures and with snow covered ground. I think we’re going to have to start purchasing industrial sized bags or something! I filled it to the top this morning and 2 hours later it was empty. This is Walter’s favourite hang out and entertainment of choice… starlings, chickadees, crows, and seagulls all add to his entertainment value.

Current WIP (work in progress)

2. I sidetracked from custom orders today to sort some fabric scraps and kept a wee bit for myself. These being some of them, aren’t they lovely? I’m working on this project now, so it will be done tomorrow with photos. It’ll be up on my FB page if you’d like a peek, otherwise i’ll share soon!

Part of my wrap around deck…

3. I miss sitting out here relaxing… reading, doing puzzles, bird watching, soaking in the sun, hanging out with my youngest as she loves being outside as much as I do! I really can’t wait for spring. I will need to add another coat of paint/sealant to the deck as the salt has done a doozy on it this winter… *sigh*

“Cross Stitch for the Soul”

4. I have the BEST sister, bar none. She noticed this book sitting on my Amazon wish list, for like 2 years, *blush* and just found it at Goodwill for 50% off! She thought of me grabbed it for the huge price of $2.50 – Score!! I’m so excited to receive this book and finally see it in person! So thankful! Made my week!

“Ghost Doctor”

5. It’s the little things. My husband downloaded the “Viki” APP for me as he knows I love to watch K-dramas & have been wanting to watch “Ghost Doctor” with RAIN in it. I don’t watch much tv, but K-dramas are fun and I love the storylines. Anyway, i’ve been wanting to watch this since it came out, and now I can! I’m 4 episodes in and enjoying it so far!

Ok, that’s 5 things! I’m off for now, hope everyone had a great Friday!


I’m in a bit of a rut lately.. i’m feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and uninspired. I have no time for myself. Therefore, that means no time to write a blog, no time to read a blog, no time to read a book, no time to watch tv, no time work on a personal hobbies/crafts, etc… just no time.

My day is consumed from morning till night with work & simply trying to keep up with everything that needs done from the moment I wake up, to the time my head hits the pillow at night again.

I’m sure, this too shall pass… I just wish it would pass sooner than later.

Too busy…

A row of pretty pastel project bags…

I’m wondering if I bit off more than I can chew with restarting a blog after so many years…

I’ve been busy with custom sewing, trying to create new RTS (ready to ship) items, like the beautiful project bags above, preparing for a new monthly auction group I’m in, *exhale* & then the rest of “life” entwined into all of that.

I sometime feel that every post has to be something “grand”, or at the very least, informative & entertaining, but I suppose that’s not really true is it?

It’s just after 9pm here now, I have an hour & a half until I can go to bed. So I’m reading & resting until then. The days go by far too quickly lately & there’s never enough hours in the day to accomplish all I want to, and squeeze in time for things I’d like to do as well.

Tomorrow I think I’ll try to catch up on my blog reading… oh! A question for WordPress bloggers please! For the blogs that I follow, since I read all the posts on my APP, is there a way to not get all the emails as well, or is that a pkg “deal”?

Have a great night! 🌙
