Annie time...




Yesterday I had a few blissfully free hours of an afternoon at home. I filled it with so many lovely things! I did laundry, hung up autumn decorations, rested, sang, wrote, prayed, and enjoyed an outdoor adventure time with my Annie girl.

One of my favorite things to do is spend time outdoors with my dog Annie. She investigates the surroundings, pays close attention to smells, and keeps an eye out for cats. I watch my lovely brown eyed buddy roam around the yard, gaze at the songbirds, squirrels, tiny plants, tinier bugs, and the vast expanse of sky. There are so many intricacies to notice outdoors. There are so many things to appreciate! It is beautiful. It is especially beautiful to appreciate afternoon adventures with Annie now that I spend so much time indoors at work and school.

So, Annie and I captured a little of one of our adventures on video and a few photographs to share with all of you.

Happy Friday, everyone!


P.S. In case you were wondering...Any time is good for Annie time.

Math dreams and creative things...

This is what my mind looks like tonight. I am currently studying for my first math test and my brain is a mish-mosh of numbers, words, and thoughts. I've studied and studied and studied today. Now I do believe I will head to bed early. I will curl up under blankets and rest my tired mind.

In some ways it is hard to believe that I haven't posted anything in this space since August. On the other hand, it makes total sense. Life is very busy right now. I am working part time at a job I truly enjoy, taking a full course load of classes, and I am striving to make good grades which means that I am investing lots of time into studying. I do not have as much time for creative outlets such as this blog and my craft projects. But, never fear! I am still taking time for creativity and I am not giving up on this blog. However, I'm coming to realize that this blog space isn't as high of a priority right now.

I would like to thank those of you who still read this little space of mine and leave comments from time to time. I hope that the little bits I do post in this busy season will bring a smile to at least one person's face and encouragement to at least one person's heart.

Before I go I did want to share a bit of creativity I've been able to enjoy recently. My dear friend Sara Beth is getting married! I have the privilege of being one of her bridesmaids and I recently helped her with some wedding related things. We tea-stained white lace dresses for the bridesmaids to wear.

I wanted to share a quick picture from the time and I hope to share pictures of (at least) my dress once I get it back. I am also currently working on headbands that the bridesmaids may wear. Even during this busy season I am finding time to be at least a little creative.

Now, off I go to curl up in bed and dream dreams where math equations swirl in my head.

Thoughts to ponder-

Does math excite you, tire you, or a combination of both?
How do you find time for creativity during busy times?
