JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 279 joy is shopping

14 Oct


Ah, the joy of shopping! That is how this blog began and where it brings me today. To shopping for a blanket. Not for me. Not for Justin. Or anyone else I am related to. No, today, I went shopping for the dog. That’s right, Brady. 

Brady keeps trying to steal my blanket. I have to admit, it’s a really nice, furry, warm one from World Market. What can I say, this dog has great taste? But this blanket is mine and I want to keep it that way. So I made a special trip to Marshall’s to find Brady his own really nice, furry warm blanket.

Sunday shopping success! Now Brady has his own blanket and so do I. So both of us can be warm. 
And that brings me joy. 
More tomorrow… Lovemore,

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 31 :: the joy of completion

31 Jan
{so crafty}

In the DIY category, I’ve always been more of a painter. A calligrapher. An ink on paper sort of girl. But this year, it seems that yarn is calling my name.

And do you know what is full of heaping amounts of JOY?

Finishing something.
Putting the last bit on a project.
Placing the final ribbon around it.
The pièce de résistance.

For me, on this night, it was this. My first blanket. Pup included!

This project is complete.

They say the journey is what we should enjoy most… enjoy the ride!
But I have to admit, I kind of like marveling at the finished product.

Oh, joy.
More tomorrow…

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 301 :: drive and determination

30 Oct
The seasons are changing…. and if you needed any proof of the dropping temperatures… I give you Brady.

Who somehow climbed up into this chair and wrapped a blanket around himself….all by himself…

And then plopped down to get comfy in front of the heater. On the chair.

I guess winter is coming!

More than anything it reminds me of drive and determination. If you want something enough, or are in enough pain you will find a way to make it happen.

Peak performance?

More tomorrow.
