Spring cleaning

Some people use the first of the year as a time to start new habits. While I usually resolve to do a thing or two around then, those resolutions often don't stick, which I am going to conveniently blame on winter funk. As the energy of spring grows, I start getting itchy to get into a new groove. Out with the old, in with the new. I procrastinate on everything, so why should new year's resolutions be any different?

Right now is a time for decision making for our family (gee, isn't being grown up fun?). A time to evaluate and re-evaluate. A time to clean out the proverbial (and literal) cobwebs. A time to prioritize. It's a good thing the days are getting longer. I'll need a little more energy to keep up.

Crafting is coming along, but I have nothing exciting (meaning no pictures) to share at the moment. I did make a pretty nice score of some new yarn to play with last night at our knit n sip, and I whipped out a quick one skein scarf last night (that may be a belt or something....not sure what to do with it yet. Maybe if I show some pics someone else can give me a clue) because I was so in love with the color of the yarn.

Baby girl turned 11 weeks old today and is now pushing a healthy 12 lbs. My, how time is flying. Two months from now and we will be getting ready to fly home from Rome. Anticipation is growing!

There are so many demands on us these days.. it's hard to make the resolutions stick. For me, I've seemed to have missed placed my will power and my priorities somewhere. Flyin' by ones seat of pants can be daring and fun, but for I'm getting too old for that. LOL.

Yarn Swap was fun. I thought you're mitred square idea was fab. More details in the meetup.

Happy 11 weeks, baby girl. You're growing up so fast. At 3 you'll be dating ... like my friend's little boy. He found a "pretty girl" in the supermarket the other day. It's all he can talk about.
