A belated HaPpY NEw YeAR

Hope you all had a great start to the New Year and have a safe & happy 2011.

We saw the new year in laying on a blanket under the stars, star gazing. Our first day of the year was soooooooooooooooo hot that we spent most of the day in the pool. I was slathered in sunscreen, had a hat and a 3/4 sleeved collared shirt as I just get sun burnt so easily. We had 3 different lots of visitors to help us enjoy our pool.

So whats in store for this year. I really don't know but God does, I just need to trust him in the hard times and give thanks in the good, read his word daily, pray and be open for his guidance especially in areas that he needs me to change.

My plans are to continue to make as many presents as I can as well as aprons as a fundraiser for SECET. I also would like to quilt the 5 tops I have completed and continue to work on my UFO's.

At work we are calling 2011 the year of the positive & I would like that to be a part of all areas of my life. Putting aside all failures and start anew.

I am soooooo thankful that with God I can start anew everyday he doesn't remember any of my failures once I have confessed them. I need to work an letting go of how others have failed or hurt me. looking at every situation with new positive eyes.

So here's to a great 2011 THE YEAR OF THE POSITIVE

Happy New Year Gail, I hope 2011 is a wonderful year for you and your family.

We spent New Years Day at the beach and I did get sunburnt bad, starting to peel now.
