Speaking of changes....hmmm.....

Well folks....As I've always said..."Everything happens for a reason." We may not always understand that reason as first, but it always presents itself eventually.

I start off with this saying because....My company closed it's doors and everyone working there is now out of a job....including moi.....

Some things just cannot be helped and as always, I remain 100% positive...because I feel as though this will lead me to another new and exciting path in my life. I look forward to whatever door (or window) God chooses to open for me now...and I will willingly accept whatever He throws at me with an unending smile! :)

After all....variety is the SPICE OF LIFE!!!

Knitting and "K"Netting.......

Well, I'm excited to announce that I've officially turned into a 65 year old spinster....I'm taking knitting lessons starting this Saturday! LOL...ok, just kidding about the "spinster" part...it'll be fun. I'm taking the lessons with my mom and we're both excited about making all of our Christmas presents this year.........Did I just hear all of my friends and family groaning???

So...the "k"netting......I've been under attack by mosquitoes in my home for the past week!!! I hear them buzzing by my head when I'm sleeping, see them hiding in corners and dive-bombing me when I'm getting out of the shower! They are ruthless! So, I'm thinking I may need to get some netting to go around my bed.....I can always just pretend that I'm on a safari in Africa...and there are elephants and tigers outside.....just chillin......in the jungle........ya know....cause that's what they do......

Cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-Changes!!!!!!

Well...I feel as though I've been expending my energy into objects and desires that are not worth the effort lately. I've been stressing about little things and letting small issues get me down....Well....LOOK OUT WORLD...cause I'm about to overhaul my soul!!!

First change: I began my intense yoga program! I'm going to try to go at least 4 days a week, but would really like to go 6 or 7. My schedule doesn't always allow that, but I'm going to try my darnedest!

Second change: After many years of being "church-less", I've found a new church to call home. I'm excited to get involved in their programs (they volunteer a lot around the neighborhood) and they have LOTS of social events for singles!!! Man, oh man...I would love to meet a good, Christian man.... ;) And, who knows...I may start singing at church again! That would be fun!

Third change: So, the first 2 sort of focus on me...the 3rd deals with the people I love.........I will pay more attention to communicating my thanks and appreciation to those around me. I will go out of my way to help friends and family....and let them know how dearly they mean to me. Life is so short and precious and we mustn't take one minute of it for granted....

So....wish me luck on this journey for the mind, body and soul! :)

Canton Trade Days...

Man, oh man...Do I LOVE Canton Trade Days or WHAT?!

Ok, for those of you who have never experienced the wondrous magic that IS Canton First Monday....imagine being surrounded by handmade furniture, jewelry, purses, greenery, candles, knick-knacks, clothes, the smell of funnel cakes and corn dogs, couples wearing matching outfits, beautiful Texas twang speech, people pushing strollers for either a baby or a dog.....good, Christian, ALL-AMERICAN people.....who don't mind sweating like a pig to find killer deals!!!

Unless you've actually experienced this miraculous event, you can never truly know how life-changing it can be..........(ok...well, maybe not life changing...but, it sure is FUN!)

Yes, it is a "flea market" if you want to put that label on it....but, it's the best darn flea market in Texas. And, in the months that the weather is cooperative....it's pure Heaven.

The only way this day could've been better is if I had gone to Sam Moon..................oh...wait.....I DID GO TO SAM MOON TODAY!!!! :) ahhh....doesn't get much better than this.....nope...
