Caught my breath!

It has been one busy fall. I needed to take off my quilter cap and put on my caregiving cap.
While I manage to keep up with commitments on a day to day basis I could not keep up with every thing. People I loved needed more of my time. And it is an honour and a privilege to give.

Enough said.

2017 what does it mean to give ... well after a week or so in I know it is going to have lots of change in store.

Postitive Change!

Exciting Change!

Scary Change!

While I have chosen my word of Balance , I am kind of viewing it as a kind of Tetter totter word.

My world has never been totally balance. I have a love hate relationship with change and excitement. 

But I am trying to do is change my thinking patterns to a more positive approach. 

I tend towards the dramatic. An all or nothing approach. Or actually I am a great starter and beginner but I kind of lose interest quickly. 

So what have I planned for 2017? 
Small goals for bigger projects. 
Eating better
More reading! And not feeling guilty about it. 
Continuing with my embellishment small group at my house. 
Work away at my dreaded WIP's - list to follow. No more new quilt patterns until 1/2 are finished! (big statement) 
Walking more. 
Making more art. 
Just starting! 
Figuring out my lightroom program. 
Playing on my tiera! 
Spending more time with good friends... 

So I am developing a plan right now... (Remember I am good at plans, bad at carry through!) 

And this all has to be fit in around our families big news of becoming a grandma in July and Dear Hubby retiring in May. 

Lets see how I carry through.

I am still trying to mull though this past year. So many things in my personal life have occurred that once again I feel at a loss.
Blogs are to me to be inspirational. Mark your mile stones. Entertain. Teach. Share.
I am at odds of what I want to do, what I can do and what I should do.
January is going to be a month to regroup. Make plans. Take care of myself. Figure things out.
Until I have got that sorted I will hibernate.....

It is my hope that 2017 will be a year of peace.

My word for the year is balance. Until I can find some I don't think I can be the blog person I want to be.

May your 2017 be a year of balance for you too!
