As the year ends, we are having another day of extensive rain. the lake (front yard) is being replenished.  If I get off the gravel in the driveway, tires just spin in the mud.  Walking to the mailbox causes shoes to become saturated, and walking the dog causes me to have to change clothes as I get soaked.  The good thing is that the Red Cross teams have been having a slow time, so I have not had to do much with data entry for them. 

My hope is to get back into my groove and start making more jewelry.  My granddaughter showed me what the students at Florida were buying; so I am making a different style bangle bracelet than I have been.  These take a bit of time, but we will see.  Also means that I hope to become active with HA again.  Posting, etc. 

May all my friends have a great new year for 2016.

John

Can't wait to see!  And glad you're ok, albeit soggy, with the weather you've been having.

And the New Year is Here!
Hope everyone is off to a good start on their new year!
Nice to see some faces that have been scarce, but understand when "life" gets in the way of hanging out here! Wishing everyone a year of health and happiness (and good sales) ;)

Good morning!

I've been having a great new year so far, and hope all of you are too.

On NYE, we attended a party at the house of friends, which we attend most years.  It was fun, as usual. 

We had a great time January 1... went to an open house party/gathering at the bee supply shop where we buy most of our equipment, and then that night we went to dinner at a pub/restaurant we love & there was a great cover band playing.

On January 2, we did stuff around the house, and were pretty low key, and then yesterday I did a body painting on Eric's back.  First time he ever let me paint him!

Today is work and home; I need to get out the minutes from the last EC meeting; I'm really overdue.  And I need to finish some other big paperwork.

Snowing here today, and forecast is that the next day we will have without snow is Sunday!  Good thing I have a quilt to work on...

Wow!  All we've had so far is about a minute and a half of flurries last week.  But today the high is in the 20s, so winter has definitely (finally) arrived.

... which means I can start worrying about the bees and chickens, of course.

Well we are all back from vacation and back to the daily grind. Spent time with Kimberly's family over the holidays  and had a good time. Hope all is well with everyone and here's to a safe and prosperous 2016!

Hurrah for sunshine! It's not warm but at least the sun is out today. Still fighting this miserable cold, so outside time is very limited. Doing chores and then resting.

I received my fabulous headband that I ordered from Sandi and I love it! It goes really well with my jacket and it's perfect for when I am out walking. Keeps my ears warm! Once I kick this cold I'll be able to use it a lot more.

Not much else going on right now. I need to let the dogs back in since I hear them barking up a storm in the back yard.

Hooray!  I am so glad that it got there safely!  Hang in there fighting your cold...  it's a nasty strain this time around but it does go away eventually.

Halloo!  We've got sun here too, albeit cold, cold sun.

Can we get a photo of you wearing the headband, T?  I'd love to see.

I've got a LOT going on.  One really big thing that may or may not pan out (body painting related, not bee or crafting related) that I'm not really ready to discuss yet.  We'll see how it goes.  But at any rate, it led me to ask for volunteers to get body painted over the weekend (no one was both willing and available, so I ended up painting E's back because he's awesome and sucked it up and let me)... which made a local journalist take notice!  So last night, we had a phone interview, and then I emailed her a bunch of photos, and she expects the story (a feature on ME!) to run this week!  It's a local online paper (like the patch, if you have that in your area), but they've got a good readership, and it's pretty incredible.  Just another way to better my business!  Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!

Today, I'm at work, and tonight I really, really need to finish drafting the EC minutes (I started last night, but got so tired I wasn't sure I could write in actual English anymore), and then just normal stuff at home.  We got a TON of mushroom mycelium transferred last night and have a bunch more to do tonight; it's growing fast!

The only other thing I really want to do is watch a new MTV show (I know, I know, MTV), The Shannara Chronicles.  It'll probably be cheesy as hell, but as a kid I read the whole Sword of Shannara series by Terry Brooks, and this is based on those, so it piqued my interest.  I'll see how the first episode looks and go from there.  I don't even know what channel MTV is on!  LOL

Good morning!  My day started off so good... awesome songs on the radio, made it in to work on time even though I got up late, three eggs in the nesting box... and then I got to work and found that the zipper on the lining in my new jacket got screwed up and I need to bring it to the store and see if I can make them fix it.  And found out that what I was working on at work this morning wasn't what the boss wanted me to work on first.  And one of my credit cards' website is screwy so I can't pay the bill yet.

I'm really hoping it picks up from here.

We've got a TON of mushroom stuff to do tonight and I'd really like to have a good day.
