the finishing line is in sight ...

Outside my window... cool and overcast ... winter is on its way :( ~ I am thinking... I can make it through this last week before term break ~ I am thankful for... understanding people ~ I am wearing... tracky daks and 3/4 sleeve top with vest ~ I am going... to try and 'release' all that is weighing me down ~ I am currently reading... the last book in the Langani series ~ I am hoping... that things will plateau out soon, hopefully some time away will help me regain my equilibrium ~ From the kitchen... Den is cooking Sunday lunch ~ Around the house... Hugh and Katie are quietly playing ~ One of my favorite things... having new scrapping kits to play with and time to read You can join the simple woman's daybook where every day is a blank page..... and participate in creating a list of the simple things and every day moments of our daily lives.

I am excited to share that I have been asked to make monthly contributions to The Artisan Notebook magazine. I always thrive on fresh new challenges, and one page a month is not a big ask. It's a nice read that I can download and read pdf on my ipad. So I will start in the month of May and I am on the "Song Writers" team ... using song lyrics in pages.

Hi Helen, Didn't know you were in the hospital. I hope you are recovering well. Good luck making it through the last week before break. I know how that goes. I can't wait until June to start our summer break. As for the itouch, my bostyn loves it too and she is only 2 1/2 years old. She knows how to use it better than her dad. Have a great week!

Hey Helen, how are you doing, I see you are out of the hospital. I sent you an e-card but not sure if you've got it? In case you were thinking that I have forgot about you, I didn't. Love your cool photo's specially the one of the bee. We are having lovely spring weather yesterday it was 22C !!

I hope that your health gets(fits) better and that you get back!!! Here the spring comes. The sun is more and more present and I have to admit you that that pleases. We can put our light shoes and spend time in the garden!
As usual, I admire your pages and your photos. And the post-treatment of photos also!
Take, please, care of you Helen and of your family! Hugs

Congrats on your gig at The Artisan Notebook, your pages will be a great asset to the e-zine. I love your photos (as always) but the one that really takes my breath away is the one with the bee ... wow! It's so beautiful, you can even see the detail of it's wings! Hope you're well on your way to being fighting fit again? How sweet of Den's "clan" to send you flowers and even sweeter stll is the image of Hugh making his own lunch (so grown up) and Chonk reminding you (like you could ever forget) that she loves you. Blessed. Truly blessed my friend xoxoxo
