So today, I knew I needed to relieve some of the stress and concern and to wake up to this beautiful sunny day was the perfect start.
I then started work out in one of my gardens. This is the first day I've been able to get out there and start cleaning out the fall and winter mess. The physical work felt so good, and then to see the cleaned up garden and the green sprouts coming up just does something for your mind and soul. Then I sat on my porch swing for a little while and looked out at the lake.
The other hobby I have that totally relaxes me and does wonders for my well being, is "creating". I quilt, knit, cross stitch, and most recently blogging. Well, I just bought a new camera yesterday. We are leaving for San Antonio for my son (Brandon's) graduation from Air Force Basic Training next week (more on that on next post). Anyway, I finally came to the realization that I could no longer get by with a 35mm camera and got a new digital. I'm having so much fun with it. How did I live without it?
So what better way to relieve stress than to combine all my hobbies into a new project. I started a new blog page to showcase my "Charming Creations". I've had so much fun all evening working on this. I hope anyone reading this post will check out my new blog at http://mycharmingcreations.blogspot.com/ It was started and will continue as a constant work in progress for my own mental well being and new creative outlet. At the same time, I hope you enjoy.
My "babies", Ellie Mae and Fergie. Aren't they cute? They also make me feel good. Although Fergie, on the right, now 2, is still eating poop. And he doesn't care what animal it came from. Duck, deer, geese, or Ellie Mae. Isn't that disgusting? When and how will he stop that?
