Hello All

I am deep in my mid Winter doldrums. I am not a winter person. From November through the end of March I want nothing other to sleep ALL day long and I would if I could. I find little joy in anything during this time. My poor winter baby ( who will be 17 on January 8th) is the only time I felt half alive in the winter. Though he did have to deal with a very drowsy mother. I think I overcompensated with him when he was a baby. Being born 2 weeks after Christmas in the middle of a Colorado winter and the 10th Grandson in a row without any girls. (There are still only 6 girls out of 23 grandkids) I think we were the only ones to be excited to see him. So I called him "The Baby" until he was almost 4, I don't think he knew his real name until he was 3

Ain't he cute?

Though on a better note ,that is the winter I discovered the Internet. I have had the same email address for 16 years. Though there were so few people on that I don't think I actually got a non spam email for about 4 years. LOL

I have some RR commitments due. One is due tomorrow and I haven't even started. ( Don't listen to that Gerry!!) I know I can get it done I just need to get off my sleepy butt. I have even hit all the stores ( Joann's , Michael's, Hobby Lobby. Wal Mart and 3 other local stores)and haven't even seen anything I wanted to buy. Man !! I must be in a slump

Here is a pic of the kiddos at Disneyland. I'm off to take a nap

Hey Lauri, thanks for visiting my blog hon, and your work was beautiful. I really liked that leaf garland. Good looking family you have there...and don't worry it will be spring before you know it!

Hi, Lauri, hope some sunshine comes into your life soon. It sounds like you have that light affective disorder big time! We need those windows like they have in scifi movies - the ones where you can make it show anything you want - or maybe a holodeck where you can sew and craft in whatever location you want. =)
