I thought I'd share five things from my week. It's not been very exciting here in my house - then it never is, hence the title of my blog. An ordinary woman with an ordinary life lol.
I booked my trip home to England!!! It's really early to do it, but an airline I travel with was having a really good sale on flights. I ended up paying $600 less than I paid last year! Now Mum and I can concentrate on where we want to go when I'm over visiting.
Crafting - there hasn't been a lot of that going on here this week. Instead I have been cleaning up my craft room and the mountain(s) of cross stitch floss that seems to have multiplied over the house.
It is all nicely stored now. I have also sorted all cross stitch patterns, fabric and kitted projects and they are all easily accessible and in one place. I am sure there are more over the house, but when I find them I will be taking care of them. It does feel really good to have this done. I can easily find what I need!
Daughter and Shasta are settling in their new home. They went out and about on Monday and found a new trail to walk along. Hopefully I'll be visiting them soon!
Hubby and I bundled ourselves up on Sunday and went to Lake Michigan for a walk. We were tired of sitting in the house and as it wasn't snowing and the roads weren't bad we decided to go visit a State Park we hadn't been to before. It was really beautiful.
It was really beautiful and interesting to see all the ice formations. Such a fun walk. Winter isn't my favourite time of year but this year I am trying to see the beauty in winter. On this walk I definitely saw some beauty!
These books are on my reading list this week. I'm not reading them all the way through in one sitting. I admit I would have a little trouble reading and understanding them completely if I just sat down and read. But I am determined to learn how to use my camera properly this year. The Year With My Camera book goes along with a Facebook group and emails (you don't need the book to participate) and already I am loving what I have learned. Hopefully by my summer hols I'll be taking really, really good photos that I can be proud of!
Hope the week went well for everyone. I'll be popping around the blogs to check.
