A little "let-down" after a years work.

Well, well? The day has come and gone and no matter how each of us felt about it -we now have a new year facing us to deal with  as we see fit.

I have spent my new day playing catch up - or that is what it feels like. I caught up with the laundry basket and also the "putting - away" of all the laundry which can be a task in itself. Then I worked in the kitchen-dishes were piled up everywhere I looked and there was NO room for me to work. I was just TOO exhausted yesterday when we got home to tackle dishes and since DH is a grazer the stacks just got higher and higher. So, it took me about two hours to get them all done and pluck them from their hiding places.

 Then I moved on to making us a pot of fresh potato soup - which is one thing that DH loves.  Thank goodness for the fact that it is nice and simple and I still need "simple"!

Our snow showers has turned into snowfall of about 6 inches of the pretty white powdery stuff. It is very slick to try to stand up in -but I did get my chores accomplished-but fighting that ice cold whipping wind made breathing outside a chill that hurt. I was so glad to be able to come to the house and start all those chores.

I was feeling a little "bla" until my youngest granddaughter emailed me and thank me for her gifts! That really lifted my spirits! She was my Hero today .

So, if any of you are feeling that "bla" feeling and just need an ear -you are welcome to share it with me. :) I know for me -just starting to count my blessings - usually helps me so much.

Or right now at this moment - Miss Rosie the sewing kitty - has pounced upone a gift that she received from my Tenn. buddy. Rosie was sosoooo tickled to be remembered and she is throwing the little Santa attached to a string high in the air!I think she counts her blessings too. :)

So, Dash Away, Dash Away - Dash Away All!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Oh I know that your granddaughter made your day! I gave mine some dishcloths that I had made along with some other things including cash. I finally heard from 2 of them today that they liked the dish cloths! It does help to get acknowledged. Don't work too hard.

  2. It's amazing what a little thankyou can do. we don't spend our time making gifts to be thanked but it sure helps. Happy days to you.

  3. Glad that your granddaughter made your day. It sounds like it was a very difficult day for you. Do count your blessings...that will always perk you up.
