Lots of changes

Well no I have not fallen off the planet. :O).... I have gone back to work outside the farm and am still trying very hard to keep up with all my farm work as well!

I am back working in a field I worked in for years before the move to the farm 9 plus yrs ago. Interior Design. I am enjoying it.... but whew its been a HUGE adjustment :O). I am doing my best to keep up on the farm and with honeyman and work.

I am starting to feel like I have leveled off and am getting a bit of a groove with it all.

Being a fabric-a-holic myself .....working where there are 100s of bolts of home decor fabrics hanging and then seeing new pieces coming in daily to the work room to be made up into beautiful window treatments, duvets, dust ruffles, pillows etc. or going on furniture in the upholstery department... ewwwwww ya that's fun seeing all that fabric!!! I have been a part of making some stunning window treatments at the shop and have so enjoyed that! It feels good to work in a creative manner again and I get paid for doing it! :O)

I have been missing for a while from blog land and can't make any promises as to how often I will post. I read you guys blogs as I have time :O), though I don't  leave comments all the time. :O) ...

I am still swimming and loving it! My new job is at a Design Studio about 5 minutes from the gym I go to! Tell me this wasn't meant to work out.  I am still running but not as much as I am swimming :O).. though I can say the swimming is making me a much stronger runner!  When I ran this morning I thought to myself.. man that swimming is so paying off! I have my sights on a triathlon IF I can get in enough training time before this next March. That is a big IF. I still have to get in some cycling time to make it all come together... We will see how it all works out :O)...

Honeyman had some scares recently medically but all has turned out super... and we are very grateful for this! He is good, he is better than good :O)... We are so grateful!

Keeper is doing super! He has adjusted well to me not being with him every minute of the day. He is the best thing!

That about catches everyone up on where I have been. :O)

Texan,

Congrats on going back to work. It's going to keep you real busy trying to juggle both work and the farm.

I'm sorry to hear Honeyman had medical issues but happy to hear he's well.

Keep up the good work and give Keeper a scratch behind the ears.

Yay for you! You have been missed but we all understand. Thanks for the update. You might have seen my post about a family member that just did an Ironman...it's unbelievable to see those athletes, I'm impressed you are working toward that goal. You go!

All the best to the rest of your homestead, human and animal! :-)

Congrats on the new job! I loved my time in a work room. And yes, do a triathlon. A mini is a good experience for trying it out. Thanks for checking in on us. We keep moving forward,

So glad I followed the trail to your blog . . .fiber animals, fabric and fabulous fellows - what more could a TX born (east coast raised) fabric/fiber fiend ask for?

My aunt is an interior designer in Dallas, and when I visit and we hit the fabric stores I am temped to push my loom(sss) into a ravine. There is SO much gorgeous fabric - why weave?
