Work, a bad Easter bunny and I'm charmed.




Wow! Working again really makes time fly by! I have super sore feet from standing all day, but other than that, things are going well. It is fun to work in a fabric store again..it is just filled with all kinds of beautiful stuff. Andrew has taken to Julie (my sister) really well and enjoys staying with her while I work. Olivia goes to school right before I work so I drop her off and then she rides the bus home. She is little "Miss social" and having a great time. She runs in after school, has a snack and goes right back out the door to play with all her friends. I still haven't finished unpacking yet, but I am hoping to get it done today. I also bought some really cute flannel prints and Julie and I are going to make pj pants. I am shocked by how low the fabric prices are here...I guess because it is so competitive...The flannel I bought would be 9-10.00 dollars a yard in Washington. I got it for 5.88 a yard less my discount. Amazing..and this is the good stuff. It has still been sunny with bright blue skies every day and I am so thankful for that! I wake up and feel like moving around. I do miss the water and all the green trees but the sun more than makes up for it and the mountains are so pretty right now all snow topped. They look like you could just reach out and touch them. As far as crafty things, I was invited to join a new art group and one of the themes was "evil
easter bunnies...I had to laugh. I think "Evil" may be too strong of a word but it is funny. I made a "Bad Bunny" atc for it....I also got the best package in the mail from Miss Amber Dawn! Black and White charms from her charm swap. They are all so pretty and I have been admiring them and thinking how pretty they are going to look on a bracelet. Someone even made this wonderful little bag to hold their charm. So much talent came my way in one package...WOW!

Hi Melinda

It sounds like you are settling in to your new home and community. I suppose you'll get used to being on your feet all day and it won't be so tiring. And the charms you received are, sorry, charming!
