Today I felt like having a cup of coffee and just talking with you. A little woolie blog time before I start to hit the door running. I love early mornings watching the sun come up, catching up on my email, checking out my Pin site for fun new ideas. My dear friend Robin is an early bird and so when I texted her at 0515 in the morning...she called. Life can be so challenging. In the same week she lost her mother, she also lost a nephew. Please keep her in your thoughts and if you pray...pray for relief. Life is so wonderful but it is peppered with moments of shear heartache...and so, it is those moments of calm and sweetness that you must roll around in it like a pig in a mud puddle. It reminds of a story years ago...I let my little dog Yoshi (9lb toy poodle) out the front door for a little romp in the front yard. We lived on a cul de sac and it was safe for dogs and kids. When he came back he was literally covered in dog shit!!!! As in matted, stinky grin on his face....or rather excuse my French...shit eating grin dog face! I was horrified that someone would grab my dog and rub excrement all over him. Not being an experienced dog owner I called Robin...blabbing that I was gonna find the $%^& who did this to my dog. Robin explained that dog like to jump right into a big pile of $%^& whether it be horse, cow or big dog...crap! We can take a lesson from them, sometime you gotta just roll right in it and come up smiling!
My redwork is coming along...I am so excited about this project...LOL...I think I say that about every project! But thankfully to my future DIL Emily who last night on SKYPE told me I could watch season 2 of Downton Abbey on the Internet by going to PBS I was able to get another area stitched.
The Woolie blog is not only to write my ramblings and share my world...both quilting/wool and non quilting but to also share what I discover along the way. With that said I have added 2 new blogs to the blog list on the right hand side for yours and my pleasure. The first is La Maison de Maristella who hails from Verona, Italy. I love expanding my world both in creating and connecting. She has a google translator bar so you can click and read in English. The second one I added was for my own guilty pleasure...Beyond Kimchee Korean food is not only extremely healthy but very savory and I want to learn to make more dishes at home since in Bend, Oregon...I would have to travel 3 hours over a mountain to find a Korean restaurant or store! Both of these blogs are now added on the right hand side of the Woolie blog on the blog list...Enjoy!!! Let's meet tomorrow for coffee again!
