A lot has happened in the last two years. I'm still working full-time. I still sing Alto II in the La Jolla Symphony Chorus, and I'm still a member of San Diego Creative Weavers Guild and Complex Weavers. We've had some ups and downs with my husband Eldy - he's still on chemo, and will be for the rest of his life, but he's doing really really well, for which I'm thankful.
For a year or two, I was on blood pressure medication, and it turned me into a zombie in the evenings. I hated it! Awhile ago, I decided to stop taking the meds. (I probably wouldn't have done this if I really did have high BP, but I just have a condition that can make it dangerous if I get it, so the meds were supposed to be preventative. I decided that quality of life trumps quantity. )
So I'm finally starting to emerge from the fog, and feeling like doing creative things again. Even better, I'm currently on track to retire this summer (94 days, according to the countdown app on my phone!) So I've been trying to get my ducks in a row, revive some of my previous passions, and prepare myself for that blissful time when I can spend my days doing whatever I want to do!
This post is about one of my re-organization projects. On Dawn McFall's blog (http://mffstudio.blogspot.com/), I drooled over photos of her studio, and was especially enamored of some wooden carts. I emailed her to find out where they came from, got a reply, and ordered one.
Here's my new spinning corner!
It feels so nice to have all of my spinning stuff nice and tidy in one spot! And since this is in the corner of the family room, I hope that I'll be more likely to sit down and spin frequently. That thought makes me happy.
