Life

Hi! It's been a while since I last wrote... Can't seem to get in a schedule!
I have been working two days a week since September and have started to learn some floral design now! Pretty exciting, but it can be a little overwhelming. I am constantly learning something new each day at work and I enjoy it. With winter coming, so is the busy time of work so I am waiting to see how that goes. I can't say that I want to be a floral designer but I do enjoy it.
Today I canned some pears for the first time. I don't know what they will be like...but I am sure they will be fine. I am planning to put a batch of pears drying when I finish this.
Thursday I am going up to my sister's Elisa's house and stay with another sister, Marissa, while Elisa and her family are gone. It will be a nice change...
I bought myself a sewing machine but haven't really had a chance to figure it out... I started to sew a dress but haven't had a chance to work on it in a while. Not sure how that will turn out... I haven't been working on much crocheting or knitting lately, but have been doing more scrapbooking. I am hoping to start teaching myself more about piano playing though...I haven't tried to learn anything new in a long time... Our piano isn't tuned though which makes it harder to want to play. Maybe with winter coming things will slow down so I can take time to try learning something new.
Sunday we had a church potluck at my sister Mindy's and that was fun! I enjoyed laughing and talking with my nieces and nephews... us girls went for a walk which my nephew Dustin accompanied us on, we sat on the front porch and visited, played Spirit of America (a trivia board game) and just laughed and reminisced. All my "little" nephews are bigger than me now which they think is funny and spend quite a bit of time teasing me about. Pretty soon those "little" boys will be men, but I will always see them in my head as the little boys they were and sometimes still are...
I guess that's all I really have time to say.... I will try to write again soon....:/ We'll see how that goes...
God's Peace,
Marita
