Happy New Year to all!
I am greeting you with nature's own light show, photos taken from my living room window.
The first photo is in the early morning, last week.
We have no snow here this winter - strange indeed - but we had some days of fog, and night frost left the world decorated like an iced cake.
Adding the pink mother of pearl morning light it was spectacular, as was the sundown the same week, sun reflecting in clouds and remnants of fog.
A friend of mine said the other day that I am an everyday person - one who celebrates the small moments in everyday life, like spectacular light in my neighbourhood, a candle, a cup of hot tea, a thread without tangles, and yes, I think she is right. It gives me a lot of pleasure to notice the small good things in life.
2006 was not very nice to me health wise and I am hoping for a surgery date very soon. I have been told that I am in the January-February group on the waiting list and I hope to know a date soon, real soon.
A colostomy is a huge change to the body, but I am ready and as prepared as can be, after 3/4 of a year being sick and housebound.
All that can be tried are tried and a colostomy is the last and final solution.
I am so ready for a more active life outside my own home!
Cross your fingers for me for a date real soon!
I am not one for New Year resolutions but I have some goals that involves finishing my Nearly Insane quilt top. It is 98 blocks, and I have 9 - hmmm - should keep me busy for a while ;-)
The Watermelon quilt will be finished hand quilted in 2007 and I have a Snowman Collector BOM with all the applique done that I want to have in my guild's biannual show in October.
The before blogged angel BOM will also be started - maybe today.
I also will like to end 2007 with less fabrics in my shelves than I have today.
My first, last and most important goal is to have fun. Girls just want to have fun, right? ;-)
I really appreciate all my blog friends and I am looking forward to spend creative time with you all in 2007!
