Each week I try to link up with LeeAnna of Not Afraid of Color for our weekly I Like Thursday posts. Taking the time to find things that I am grateful for, the things that spark joy, provide inspiration or provoke a chuckle can always make me realize how great life is.
I am beyond grateful to know that my two oldest great grandchildren have recovered from their cases of Covid. Mason has severe asthma so was not able to be vaccinated. Nov-Lee is still too young to be. Both are recovered and testing negative and are able to return to school and preschool. They have been left with a bit of a nagging cough but otherwise are back to normal; busy, active and always hungry!
I’m starting to get busier with my Guild. We are being optimistic that we can hold our annual Spring Fundraiser (which had been cancelled for 2 years) even if we have to hold it outdoors. I get to meet a small group of volunteers (3-4) to sort and organize all of the donated goods. In April we will start gathering volunteers to dig up, split and pot up garden plants (it’s almost a battle to get any of these treasures) and then the baking will begin for our tea room. We now have enough tents (several are loaned by our members) to be able to have everything set up in our yard.
Here’s a few photos from past fundraisers:
With all that is going on in my circle of family, friends and throughout my country, I’m finding that keeping busy is my best option. I am so grateful to have an adequate stash to keep busy. I’ve been working on some hand sewing as well as quilting projects, have done several pattern tests for designers I enjoy. My EPP projects are progressing. I’m trying to put the little shapes together. My stitches are showing a bit, but with much more practise will get better, I’m sure. I just keep reminding myself that it takes time to learn new skills. I’ll have photos to share soon. 😉
In closing I will share something that made me laugh:
Thank you for spending some of your time with me today. I do hope you have a wonderful Thursday and your week has been filled with fun, laughter and many things that make you happy. Do pop over to Not Afraid of Color to see what happy things our friends are sharing today. 😄 Carol
