Still here...

Oh man, it has been a long time since my last post. You see, I decided to get a 10 to 5 job and that stole eight hours of my day. Thank goodness my contract is over, now I have a lot (and I mean it!) to catch up. The house is a mess, the garden is a mess, I'm behind with my stitching and there is a ton of work in my office. It's overwhelming but one step at the time... hopefully by the and of the  month I will breath easier and sleep better.

The weather is awesome, I managed to go for a few hikes with Frosty:


Maybe tonight I will find a little time to curl up with the book. I have 'The Coldest Girl in Coldtown' by Holly Black on my list.

So long my friends,
Evalina

Saturday morning in Port Alberni

Snow, snow, snow everywhere... about a foot thick blanket of snow had cover Port Alberni over night. It was snowing yesterday but just a little, this morning I woke up to real winter-land. This is on my deck:


I tried to go for a walk with Frosty but I was sinking in the snow - maybe later I will drive with her to a place where she can have a good run without the leash.

In February we usually have crocuses and camellias in bloom (that's from February a year ago)


Thank goodness there is a rain in forecast.

So long my friends,

Goodbye 2016

Six more hours and 2016 will be gone forever. As always there were some ups and downs and, for some unknown reason, I'm looking into 2017 with real excitement.

Last January I started the year with minimalism challenge. The idea was to remove what wasn't adding value in to my life and to make room for stuff that is. And let me tell you -I have so much room now that I must to start 2017 with maximalism challenge (if such thing exists).

Definitely I have a lot of room for more love, more compassion, more friends, more money, more finishes, more fun, practically more of everything. I read very few books this year (just 33) and I made very few blog posts (56). Can you agree that I have plenty of room for more?

I'm not setting any goals and I'm not making any resolutions. Instead I'm making an action plan!

As for the stitchy part... I DID IT!!! I finished sixth page of my Guardian Angel and I'm ready to start another one. Here is the finished page:


So long my friends,

Merry Christmas!

How was your first day of Christmas? Mine has started awesome! We were driving to our friends for Christmas dinner and there it was... a Santa fishing on our beautiful Cameron Lake.


After dinner we were driving through Ladysmith and enjoyed festival of lights. In reality it was spectacular!



I'm not doing so good with my Guardian Angel and I do not think I can finish that page by the end of the year...

I guess this time Christmas got in the way of accomplishing my goal.

So long my friends,
Evalina
