Today in Arizona at sunrise it is so very cold outside and the fire in the wood stove is burning warm and strong.
It has been really fun around here lately , getting in some new colors of leather to play with and some new seed beads too! The goal is to work on some new projects. But in the meantime as usual we are creating one of a kind special orders.
Everyday something new is being created in my home. Beadwork , leatherwork, food , and on and on. Life is one big creative process making life interesting. Even when blogging you are creating something that you hope someone somewhere will find interesting. There are so many different peoples and interesting subjects all you can do is follow your heart and post what your interests in life are. Even in the garden there is a creative process that goes on. You never really know how it will all go in a year but the magic of nature is of course magical and honestly it is just part of the journey. In everything we do you can learn, in my opinion. Life is one big teaching like you are in school and you can choose to learn from your day or not. I have heard it called earth school. I can totally relate to that. In all the years I have lived on our beautiful Mother Earth I have done my best to learn from what life gave me that day. It truly is not easy but it makes sense and it helps you understand yourself and who you are. Especially if you can quiet yourself enough to feel what is happening right in the moment. Even that is not that easy to pull off. In the society we are living in everything is speeded up, in a hurry and impatience is on the rise. So I practice being patient although in all honesty some days are easier than others. There are those who really do push you to your limit to say the least.You see when I sat down to blog I had no idea what I was going to write about. This is where it all went so far. Starting with a couple of my bead projects.
Our beautiful granddaughter visited us this summer! Oh what a treat for us! Here we are in the garden with one of our sunflowers.
So that’s it for today! In our daily lives there is so very much to be grateful for. Things that bring us joy, laughter and grace. One thing I have learned is do your best to roll with it and let the river move freely with out resistance. One you start to resist stress accumulates. Do the best to steer your boat and stay on track but roll with it.
