Growing My Spirit



Outdoor canoe trip and picnic, gardening, pruning, weeding, sewing and quilting, lots and lots of time with family, quilting for charitable cause, helping and giving to others. Facing so many challenges over and over and over. But learning and growing from all of them, and from every single experience that I have in the process. These are the things that connect my soul and grow my spirit.

High 90's temps that make my loft sewing area feel like a sauna. Good thing my half French from my French mother is tempered by my half Finnish from my father. I grew up with saunas and steam baths to warm up in our cold Alaskan nights. And anyone who did that for fun can survive the 90's and still sew until the sweat pours down her body! And boy, it sure has!!

It's supposed to be in the high 80's today. I may need a cardigan as my body adjusts to the cool down!

#Peace and Love
Happy Birthday Ringo!
