New Beginnings

It's already January 2nd and 2008's officially begun. People are back to work and sighing with relief that Christmas craziness is over for another year. At our house, we keep holiday lights up through at least old Christmas, January 5. But like the lyrics in Redneck Woman--"I keep my Christmas lights up on my front porch all year long-" so our side porch, where we enter the house, will always has some welcoming lights strung around. Besides, the intense colors of Christmas lights fade with time so the porch lights now all look pastel!

I feel hopeful for 2008-hopeful that we'll see good changes for our nation and personally, that my new venture, the Quilt Studio, will develop for me as a teacher. But if I had my way in 08, I'd unsubscribe from cable TV, what with presidential elections on the horizon. My husband was horrified when I proposed a cable dis-connect-imagine wresting the remote from his hand! True story: he was once flicking through channels at a rapid rate and I got irritated. "Don't you want to see what's on?" I challenged and he replied without missing a beat-"No, I want to see what ELSE is on."

In the meantime, as we sail off into this new year, I wish for you and yours health, love, and peace and of course, happy quilting.

You write so well and I enjoy reading all the blogs.
