It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood....

Wow...I woke up this morning to overcast skies and thought for sure we would be getting rain. To my surprise (and enjoyment) the sun has decided to break through the clouds and shine, shine, shine!

We had the most wonderful surprise yesterday. Our grandbaby came to visit for a few hours. Of course, Mom and Dad had to drive him, so we got to hug their necks too, but those baby snuggles....mmmmmm! Sawyerbug sure is growing up fast...it's such a miracle to see how much he changes in just a few short weeks. Here's my snugglebug sleeping on my shoulder...oh yeah...I've still got the Mama touch. Two seconds on Gramma's shoulder and he's out! haha

Look at my little bichon baby, Prissy! She snuggled up with us and took a little nap too. :-)

I did get through most of my list yesterday...I think I might need to make a to-do list every day to keep myself on track. How about you? What do you use to help you stay on track?

Today's to-do list:

sew and stuff new dollie
sign up for Dixie Redmond's Izannah Walker Workshop YEAH!!
Package and ship my lovely Ellie to her new forever home
more laundry (ugh)
work on my new valentine pin idea - not sure about the logistics of this project yet.

That's enough for one day, right? Wishing you a happy and blessed day today...Susan

Hi Susan!
That little grandbaby of yours sure looks content and sooooooo

Good for you getting those things acomplished.

There is no method to my madness.
Some days I just pretend I have all the time in the world to get things done. Ha!

Have a great day!
Hugs, Audrey

Hello Susan,

Sawyer is a sweetie-pie! And Prissy is so very sweet, jealous I think ;) Fur babies become our babies with there are no babies to love ;)

I should have a TO DO LIST Everyday, then maybe I would accomplish something! I am also like Audrey...some days I act as if I have all the time in the world.

Have a great day, Susan.

~Tonya said...

Oh I forgot, I had a looksy at your class, I am sure you will have an AWESOME time.

Susan Walker said...

I hear ya Audrey...some days are tougher than others to get going around here. This to-do list seems to give me something to aim for though. I hope I can keep it up!

Love, those baby snuggles...I wish they lived close enough to see him every day. Those snuggles fill me up. :-) Good luck getting 'em from your 14 yo, Stace. I can hear him already "gross Mom...you're squishing me!" haha

Thanks Tonya..I am so excited to get started. Dixie has done a wonderful job putting this all together...so detailed and the forums are awesome. :-) You are so talented with clay..come join us! :-)
