Reading, Knitting and Relaxing

After a hectic 2018, I had made a promise to myself that I would slow down and relax more!  I have accomplished that so far! 

1,  My new job is much less stress (started that job 12.03.18), so that makes my days much less hurried and stressful. 

2.  I knitted a cute snowflake hat for Owen.  It turned out really well and now I'm working on one for Jack.



3.  I'm reading again.  I am almost done with the Christmas book I started in November.  I have also listened to The Bastard by John Jakes.  I am going to start listening to The Wife, which was recommended by my sister.

4.  I have started dieting and so far I have lost 4.5 lbs.!!  I walk almost every night with John after dinner and that has been very relaxing for me. 

5.  I really don't get too worked up over getting projects done by a specific time.  I work on  my projects and get them done but I don't make a specific date it has to be completed unless it is a gift.

Basically I am not going to let things bother me, or get to me like I was.  I really think it was because I had so much work to do at my last job and I was very, very stressed out.

I hope you all are having a wonderful 2019 and remember take time for yourself and relax!!  Hugs!!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
