Speaking of Spring, I think it's started to be that time of year that I go through the house, cleaning and rearranging, sorting and tossing, and otherwise going in circles itching for some color in my environment. The desert here gives us green or brown, depending on the season, with a few bits of glorious color when the land is in bloom. Now mind you, the sunsets here are probably some of the most mind blowing displays of different colors all in one setting you will ever come across. I know the sunsets are one of the main reasons I moved us out here. You have about half an hour to as little as 15 minutes to get out and see the whole display each day, but it's worth the effort to get out to them.
Here are a few pictures that I have manged to dig up off of the computer of the sunset's here....
I'm going to work on getting more of them this year. It's a peaceful, quiet part of the day that I look forward to. A point of time where I can stop and know that the day is done, the world is still simple, and that I have enjoyed another day of life on this little ball we call home.
Now, bringing the house rearranging and the sunsets together...I decided that I needed to have some more color in my house. How do you do that?? Bring the stash into the front room where I can see it;)
This has been my project for the week. No new projects. No cutting. No sewing. Just sorting, folding, stacking. We had to rearrange the front room area, or should I call it the "common" area, so that I could do this. (I really love my hubby for understanding and encouraging me with my craft!!) I was getting frustrated because the stash was in the bedroom and it has been an issue because he works graveyard and sleeps all day. Whenever I would get an idea, I would have to (out of consideration) wait until he got up to go digging through all of it to find things. That, and that washing fit I had left my stash in such a disarray that I literally had no idea anymore of what I had.
So it's out (mostly) of the closet, and ready to be used. Some quilting, some sunsets...life each day is good.
One more thing before I go....and thanks for reading all of this;).....
the hubby's beer....
It was a success!!! He loves it so much that he said he may not be able to drink store bought beer again;) I'm not a beer drinker myself, but I smelled it and compared to all the other beers I've smelled, this one is pretty darn yummy smelling. He'll be making more soon;)
So to all, enjoy the upcoming week, and Happy Quiting!!
