Life is Good

Sometimes I’m asked how do I start my day??? Lots of caffeine and a quiet request for help throughout my day.  Then onto the task at hand.  I love to play, I love to create I love to hand sew and I love to write.  I walk Mr. George cause that’s equally important to me. Our walks are slow and we talk , we share secrets, his secrets always have something to do with chasing squirrels. I talk out loud to him especially when we see deer. He loves to watch the deer and seems quite respectful especially after a doe stamped her front leg as he approached her offspring just being curious.  We see birds , we count the ducks in the pond, we talk to neighbors especially the ones with 4 legged friends.  We look for new smells and places to mark.  It has to be a leisure walk because when I’m rushed and hurried that’s how the day goes.  If I make a conscious decision to be deliberate and serene that’s how the day unfolds.  Let me tell you the sky could fall and there is nothing more important  than time away with God and nature for me.  So that’s how the day starts.  Then I take quite a bit of time to say hey to all of you and thank you for just being you, being giddy, being playful, sharing and giving each other salutes and acknowledgement of a job well done whooping it up on facebook and twitter.  (Pinterest I’m coming….) I mean it nothing in this world moves me more than folks helping one another and you all do it everyday.  Someone said our customer service was the very best, she was referring to all of the friends of Sis Boom who helped her locate a fabric.  🙂 You guys rock and make me feel so blessed to be part of this community of loving peeps.  So come join the conversation you will be welcome with open arms!!  So playing yesterday and I can not stop!!!! The birdies may be sold in kit form what do you think??? The collage is me sewing to paper,  I am addicted, changing and filling bobbins like a pro..move out da way!!

    What a beautiful way to start out the day! George is so adorable. I have been doing the same thing lately, well except I am running and without a beloved. But that’s where I find God. He’s everywhere but I see him there the most because I am not distracted. The squirrels run across my path, birds are all a twitter, the smell of cut grass, wildflowers popping out. Oh I can feel it and smell it now! That’s living the good life indeed. He is good!
    Oh that bird is adorable! I’d buy a kit! =D And look at you go sewing on paper! I think paper piecing rocks!
    There’s nothing like the community you have built girl! Nothing!

    The small things in our routines are often the very things that keep us grounded when the days threaten to spiral out of control. It’s during the moments of quiet that we hear the still,small voice.

    I’m having my caffeine and quiet right now. Looking forward to sitting with my Sis Boom stack and dreaming up new things.

    Sounds like the perfect start to your day. I can only imagine.
    I find so much inspiration, motivation in the Sis Boom community…the reason I keep coming back for more and more. I have never met so many positive people, makes Sis Boom even more special than it already is.

    And thanks for inspiring me through all that you do.

  7. Thanks so much for sharing your morning routine with us. I start almost every day on my yoga mat for the same reason. It sets the perfect pace for the day–not that I always honor that, but I’m trying.

    Someday, I’d love to hear about your creative process in developing all of these gorgeous prints.

    Currently working on a project with Girls Vibe. It’s so like my Casey Scroll. I just love it!!
