taking 5

Have you ever just needed to take 5?  Or 10?  I sure have.  As I sit writing this I am reflecting on a summer that literally passed me by.  I am not sure what I was doing that was so important but I missed summer 2011 altogether.  The winds of fall are blowing with a little sprinkle in the air today and already making my bones ache a bit.  Lord I dread winter. 

I haven't had much time for personal creativity this past month due to setting the program for my chapter on Monday.  The prep work that goes into these programs can be all consuming.  I bow down to all you program chiefs out there.  I don't know how you do it from month to month to month.  All hail Education VPs!

And, lastly, I will shortly return to prepping the budget for my EGA chapter next year.  I can honestly say that I will NEVER never NEVER volunteer to be treasurer for any organization ever again after learning how much work it is for even my small chapter.  All hail Treasurers of the world!  After October, I'll have two more months of treasuring to look forward to before some other lucky duck gets to take over. 

Well that's my 5 kiddos.  I hope this finds you all well and tucked in somewhere stitching.  I'll be on retreat next weekend with the girls so I'll plan to update you on that in about two weeks.

Take Care!


  1. Take care and enjoy yourself at the retreat! Can't wait to hear all about it!

  2. Agree with you about taking 5 ....catching my breathe, looking back at summer, enjoying fall and getting ready for winter.

    On a new project I finally tried silk floss. It's wonderful!!

    Hope you enjoyed your retreat.
