I’ve taken so much time away from blogging! It’s a sign that I’ve been very busy and that I need to get back here to let everyone know I’m still here. After being away for so long, it’s hard to get back into the motion of things but I’m ready to poke my head out.
Our little corner of the world has been a beautiful mass of snow since Christmas and I’ve so enjoyed this winter more than ever. But I’m ready for a break in the weather. For one, the builder has not touched our home since the end of December. It was too cold to pour the footer and everything came to a screeching halt. The builder says they will resume the project the first of March. And number two, I’m ready to move into our home like yesterday…Is it done yet? So as much as I’ve enjoyed the winter and the pretty snow, it’s okay if it goes away for now. It’s a sign that construction will recommence!
Here’s my little desk aka the end table right next to my recliner. I enjoy keeping inspiration in front of me, this is the source of what I’m currently drawing as my background for now. It’s a sign that I like to constantly study my subject even when I’m not drawing.
I just love the way advertising has a way of reeling me in. The thing is – this page is just where I stop. I know exactly what I would do if I had a box of those in the house. Let me be very clear that I could not just eat one! That’s my sign to leave the box on the shelf.
New growth amazes me. The little poinsettia my neighbor gave me after the holidays is still flourishing. I love that word flourishing – flourishing with new little leaves, isn’t she so cute? I think it’s a sign that she likes me.
I wrapped up my little pansy project a few weeks ago and this little thing is currently on her little voyage to India. It’s a sign that I keep my word but a very poor way of executing this on time. I still remember Hubby telling me that I was biting off more than I could chew at the time.
Our days have gotten just a bit busier as we’ve been meeting with our builder more often. We had a meeting with her last week and we have another little meeting this evening. We’re delighted with the progress and we are right on schedule with deadlines and where we need to be at the moment. It’s a sign that we’re moving in the right direction.
Valentines day is a fun day but no different than any other day of the year. I’m blessed with a man that truly treats me like his valentine daily. When asked by a friend if I got anything for valentines, I replied, yes, I have him and hubby replied we celebrate valentines every day in our house. We did enjoy a nice dinner and I had my chocolate for the first time this year! I selected a huge chocolate chip cookie with warm fudge in the center with a dollop of ice cream drizzled with fudge and Hubby had the key lime pie. It’s a sign to eat like that occasionally as I was up a ½ pound the next day. However, I’m celebrating nearly a 40 pound weight loss and I wouldn’t trade those little up’s on the scale for all the tea in China.
I’ll try to remember the signs out there as some of them can be very deceiving and others pointing the way ever so clearly. Sometimes it’s necessary to stop and adjust for the moment but most importantly see the good and enjoy the path with a thankful heart.
