I tried and tried... but I just couldn't do it.... 31 consecutive days of blogging, that is.
With weather like this in December in upstate NY...
who could blame me????!!!
A failure is not always a mistake,
it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances.
The real mistake is to stop trying.
-B. F. Skinner
Failure is really a harsh word isn't it???
I have made many mistakes this year
but I now realize that
it was really simply the best I could do at that moment in time
Those mistakes are done
and I need to focus on the joy of the present moment!!!!
(this was my word for 2014... I am working on one for 2016, how about you?)
And yes, there were presents lol!!!
This week, I couldn't blog about my latest projects
because these projects were under wraps (so to speak)
... or should I say, wrapped!!!
There was a pillow to commemorate a beloved pet...
cookies in a jar to layer...
pouches to fill with junk...
a shawl to knit and knit and knit...
cookies to bake....
(wait!!! I didn't bake those cookies!!! the kids did!)
Even with all the hubub going on here,
Amazon left a new house for Olive...
Now that those projects are in the hands of loved ones,
I can move on to the myriad of unfinished
and unstarted projects
and I will surely have plenty to blog about!!!
Wishing all of you peace, joy, love, and new projects this holiday season!!!
