Thankful Thursday

I wasn't planning on blogging today but I saw Rebecca's post and felt inspired! 

1.  This journal: 
I bought it probably about 6+ months ago. It's been sitting on my desk staring me in the face since. Today is the first day I actually wrote in it.  And it felt good.

2. The rain today. Mother Nature watering my pepper and tomato plants.

3. My challenge group for July:
the ladies in the group keep me motivated & inspired to workout every day. 

4. It's only the 6th day of the month and I already have two sales in!  πŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎ

5. One week of work and then it's vacation time (and it helps that I'm close to quota so perhaps I can relax and enjoy my vacay and not worry {too} much about work)!

6. The outlets opened near my house a few months ago - so me and along with everyone else in Montgomery County were there spending (literally) the day away on the 4th. I'm grateful I have the funds to do so and now I have a bunch of cute things to wear on my vacation (and to work).

7. I'm grateful for this quote: "Today is a good day for a good day". I have it hung on my wall so I can be reminded every day. 

What are you grateful for this week?

WIP: Midwife Blanket

Hello Friends!

I'm getting some crochet mojo back! I've been slowly picking up my hook and getting some stitches in here and there, and it feels good!

One of my goals last year (which I failed to do - so I'm taking it on again this year) is to create & donate some blankets to Project Linus.  

I am determined to donate a few handmade blankets before the end of the year. I did make one last year and tucked it away somewhere...(aka I put it in a safe place and now I can't remember where that safe place is). I've started a second blanket I intend to donate called The Midwife Blanket

Have you seen Call the Midwife? It's a great show! You can binge watch on Netflix right now! 

Meanwhile I'll keep on hooking!
