My March Update Blog

Saturday, March 16, 2013

Countless things happen when you least expect them and sometimes I guess you expect them. I am at that crossroad right now in my life where so much is coming together in the middle of the 4 way road that I am just exhausted with trying to sort things out and do the best for all involved.

I have been running around like a chicken with its head cut off just trying to keep up. I feel it is taking a toll on me but I have to continue to do it or it will not get done. I want to make sure that I cover all bases before I lie down each day. Just letting one or more of them go can cause a ripple effect making life even more confusing.

When it comes to winter I was so sure it was mostly over until this morning. I woke up to snow….not your little snow but a full blown white out. Beautiful to look at yet hazardest to your health. I did want to stop by and share a few photos and things going on around here.

My early morning wakeup call!

I love doing this braid on my granddaughters hair.

Making friends isn't all that hard to do.

I can see my own reflection in her eye.

Whoa there girl you are already fat enough!

A touch of thirst is my latest creation. I worked on it for a few weeks.

Oh, I forgot to tell you I have read not one but two novels...which is a first for me. It's been ages since I sat down to actually read and I loved both books. Veiled Eyes was the best. I enjoyed it very very much.

I also got around to redoing my grand-daughters website. I just sat down one night to do the updates she wanted and decided to give it a whole new look so I re-did the complete site and will be adding to it. She was a little upset because she liked the prior one, but once she saw it she got excited using her horse for the background. Take a look and let me know what you think.
(I had to come back and correct the typo to the site, sorry)

Have a wonderful day and may all your dreams come true. I have missed so many of you.

    Hi Joanna,
Your old friend in Florida here. I did lose you for quite some time.
I'm no better at this Web Site searching that before Ha I lost a lot of time riding
my horse this winter ~ the weather was perfect !! :-( I finally dicided that my not
riding was more due to weight gain, and not "old age" Ha So, finally got back on the
Atkins Phase 1 and have lost a quick 6 lbs. I hope to stay on it for several weeks before easing up on Phase 2. I gave my horse a bath yesterday and am starting to feel like ... all is not over yet Ha Have you recooperated enough to ride at all since last summer? ~ I know you do a lot of the chores, but how about the fun part?
Missied You

    The first picture is breath taking. Sorry you had so much snow though. I love the braid you did on your granddaughter. I will have to show that to my DD. She loves doing braids. The goat and horse, too precious. Love your painting as well.

    Dear Joanna, Glad to read your recent blog. Now is the time to stop and smell the roses (except there aren't any now!!!). I was thinking of buying a electric book reader thinking I wouldn't have to go to the library- but found out all the new books weren't available - you would have to buy them. So I'll order and send my husband to pick them up as I'm still unable to drive/walk. The operation on my back was supposed to help but instead I'm still on the "fhritz" Love Silver

    Joanna, it's so good to hear from you. . .I've missed you and glad you let us know a little how things were going. It sounds like you've accomplished a lot recently which must be an awesome feeling. Just be sure to fit in healthy eating and a good night's sleep as you always seem to have more to do than one person should have to. I only wish I had your energy but truthfully I don't. The pictures you posted are all so beautiful and you are quite a talented artist, and it's a really really good one and spoke of gentleness and peace. . .Take good care of Yourself my dear friend.

Love You,
