A Lot Going On

It's been raining here all night and it's still raining this morning. I don't mind because I love the rain. Yesterday was in the 60's and today will be as well. Then, a cold front will be coming through and our high will be in the 30's tomorrow with a chance of snow on Thursday. We all have some really strange weather going on right now. Once again I have to apologize for being away for a while. My brother has had some vacation days during both Christmas and New Years and I haven't been able to take time to get on my computer much. I have enjoyed spending the days with him. I am finally unpacking my office boxes that I had in my closet this week. When I do, I will have a lot of projects going on. I will be doing coloring, scrapbooking, working on pocket letters, making jewelry and hopefully sewing. That's a lot for me to tackle at one time. Right now, I'm not sure exactly how much time I will be on myLot. I'm going to try and work it all out evenly but if I don't happen to post a lot of discussions, please don't worry. I am going to at least comment and visit other's discussions. I hope everyone has a Happy Tuesday!

I want to begin sewing soon as my daughter moves out. I want to make handbag that my loved ones can shop with.

That sounds like a fun project. I have my sewing machine in my closet and have to find a place for it in my bedroom so that I can start sewing again.

@simone10 My daughter should be leaving soon. I am going to sew in there until I find other options for the spare room.

@sharon6345 Once she leaves, you can really set up a good office or craft room.

Good to see you again Sharon, and we all use the site to suit ourselves. There's no obligation to be here.

Thank you! I have to get organized before I can do anything. I wasn't feeling well earlier in the week but I am doing better now.

I am so sorry to hear that you haven't been feeling well. Did you get that nasty old flu that is going around?

@simone10 Thank you. I got a nasty old head cold from my husband. I get the flu shot every year. I wish there were a cold shot!

That's a lot of projects. I only have one besides myLot and that is writing. Though I have been thinking about getting the needle and thread out again.

I need to do some writing too...actually I need to get started. I keep putting it off. I don't know if it's because I'm scared I might not be good enough or what exactly.

@simone10 When starting out, don't worry about what anybody else will think. Nobody but you is going to see it anyway, unless you show it to your brother. And he most likely will love it.

I sleep good when it rains too and I could sit out on my balcony and just watch it rain for hours. Not the sprinkle kind of rain but the steady rain.

@simone10 a little lightening does not bother me either as long as it is in the distance a bit. I have a rocking chair on my porch just for such evenings.

@Simone10 I wish I was living with just 60 degrees in stead of 85, and to sit under cool shower of rain.

Well, we got some really cold weather after that. Temps as low as 8 degrees F with a wind chill of 3 degrees F.

We got rain last week too, in fact it surprised me that we had almost a week of cloudy rainy days. I hope we don't get the same kind of cold you'll probably get, I couldn't handle it. I hope you have a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year

@rebelann You are so lucky! Over the last few days we had temps in the single digits and the teens. One morning it got down to 8 degrees with a wind chill of 3 degrees.

I hope you are going to consider writing as well, on the site wee discussed. But with all those projects I can imagine this will take a back seat. lol

Oh yes! I forgot the writing! That will probably be foremost on my list of things to do. I'm not going to put off writing any more. I won't be able to do all the things I listed every day. I'm going to have to work out a schedule so that I can at least do a project once a week.

@simone10 Me too, I now have to figure out how to motivate myself and Al to do our exercise every day without our classes, that will be challenging.

@BelleStarr Sometimes it is hard to find the motivation, isn't it? I'm having that problem with a lot of things lately. I know that I have been a little depressed lately over how I feel so I'm sure that has a lot to do with it. Usually after a few days, I am back to my old self.

It's hard when you have other things going on, isn't it? I don't get online at night because I am usually tired so the best time for me is early in the morning.

It's been very windy and cold throughout the day and night also here too. Now i wish it would snow out here in Jamaica. We have so much sun and rain and wind out here. Would be so good if mother nature could grant us some snow.

Pocket Letters are penpal letters in pocket format. Basically, you fill all the pockets of a 9 Pocket Page Protector (or similar) and send the whole page to someone who wants to swap or to your existing penpal(s).

It is a great thing you have so many things you want to do. Trying to fit everything in is not easy, but it is fun trying to do so.

No, it's not easy. I'm sure I won't be able to do everything every day. It's just find a way to fit everything in during the week.

Sounds like you have some fun projects to work on. I've been busy trying to get all the Christmas decorations packed away and sorting through my books to see what I want to keep and what I want to donate. I promised myself I'd get organized

I am trying to do things to keep myself busy. I do color a lot during the day but I don't want to do it all the time and need a break to do other things that I enjoy.
