Thank Goodness it is Friday!!

Guess all teachers feel this way, but I especially like to see Friday come. I get to stay home for two days and do some of the things I can't do otherwise! Plan to try to clean and organize my crafty space. I am so lucky to have a beautiful space to do my "thing" as my cousin puts it. He took my garagae and made it into an air-conditioned/heated studio for me to use for anything I want. Formerly it was my dad's workshop and when he passed away, my cousin redid it for me. It took a while but it was worth the wait. The problem is that I haven't had much opportunity to use it with work and life happenings getting in the way. I am looking to spend a lot of time out there after June. It is detached from the house and is so nice and quiet.So, if all goes well tomorrow, that is my plan. Might even get some sewing done!

Well, this is a new experience for me, one to celebrate a new phase in my life that will be starting soon. I am retiring as of July 1 from 27 years of teaching. I will finally have time to do the things I love to do - sewing, quilting, crocheting, knitting, etc. In other words, all things crafty!! In the past summer was the only time I could do these things.

I have been reading and yearning to do lots of the things I see on other blogs and now I will have the time. I hope to keep up this blog with news of what is going on and what is happening in my life and that of my family.
