I have been doing some tangling and of course some coloring. I also have been painting some rocks. I did this years ago and sort of lost interest. Now the interest has returned. I am using them to decorate my house plants. Here is what I have done so far. Some are a bit off center but overall I am pleased and definitely having fun. And where do I find such lovely rocks? On the Amazon. Well, not the Amazon, but Amazon either way.
As I mentioned in the last very long ago post, I am trying to declutter. That will be an ongoing project for probably forever! Or so it seems. I have cleaned out my brother's room. Very hard for me to do. But now it is what I am calling a study. Or eventually will be. I have move the stationary bike in there, some plants and hope to one day own a recliner.
My BIG project has been to have my front porch repaired and screened in. I will probably write about that next so you can expect a LOT of photos. It is what I have always dreamed of and if I say so myself, it is really great looking. To say I am pleased is an understatement. It did take a while to get there - more about that and the saga of the stairs in my next post.
My life have changed a great deal since the loss of my brother. I have coped with things I was certain I could not. Grown in ways I find unbelievable. I still grieve. I think perhaps I always will. Not in the same way. The emptiness does not go away. It changes you and everything around you. I am happy though. I have met a lot of new wonderful friends and have had some new experiences. I would go back to where I was in a heartbeat, but since that cannot be done, I move forward. Sometimes not so steadily but still forward.
I will leave it at this today. It feels good to be back to writing. Sort of like talking to an old friend. I hope you will get this post. I hope you will read it. I also hope you will drop me a "hello" in the comments so I will know you are still out there. I won't swamp you with posts - promise. I just want a place to sit and chat for a bit. Thanks for all the time you spent with me before and I hope you will find something now to bring you back around occasionally. Have a wonderful day and next time you can find out how many steps my front porch had to have! It is quite a story.
