Happiness Is

Receiving mail that isn't a bill. Thanks Mindy!



Fresh baked bread.


Oh so soft alpaca yarn.


Relaxing with my boys.


Never mind that I had to bribe them with a movie to keep them still.

I am going to take some time off to enjoy these happy things and many more. I know I've said that before and then posted the next day ... this time I really am going to take a few days if not a week (or two) to just be. I need to focus. I have too many balls in the air and it seems the more I blog the more I become aware of what I haven't finished and what I'm not doing. See, I sit down to write a post and I think, oh, if I had only finished that scarf; or, that hat that I've made DH 4 times over that doesn't fit him but Henry *still* doesn't look right; or, this fabric is staring at me waiting to be made into ... You get the picture. I just need to be. Be happy. Be content. I have so much to be thankful for. I am just going to sit back, relax, and enjoy what true happiness is.
