I hope everyone is as excited as I am for the beginnings of 2013! I consider New Year’s Day a do over. So, anything that wasn’t accomplished in 2012, here’s your chance 😉 I was able to accomplished ALL of my last year’s resolutions. The reason I was able to complete such a feat was because I was resolved not to have any resolutions. This year, I do have a couple, I won’t bore you with the details, but I do have them written down to give myself atleast a little accountability.
There has been a lot going on in the Ottaway household. And as I type this, my D.H. is hammering away in our kitchen. Yep, the remodeling is well under way and David is doing a beautiful job! I’m telling ya, he’d make an awesome contractor. He’s very meticulous in what he does and has a good eye for detail. There doesn’t seem to be much that he can’t do. I really admire that quality in him EXCEPT when he’s paying attention to what I’m doing. Then? Not so much!
Also, I celebrated a birthday this month. I thought I was turning 46 and come to find out I was turning 45, so its pretty awesome to gain another year. The above photo is a present that I made myself. It’s a black cord wrap bracelet with stone(ish) beads. This bracelet took many hours to complete, but man this thing goes with everything. As a matter of fact, I’ve made myself quite a few pretties that I will be posting soon. The big joke around the house is that it was my birthday month, because every time David or Alana looked at me I was either making myself jewelry or painting my nails, reading or something. It’ my fault I guess. Alana asked me why I was beading so much and I told her I was making myself presents for my birthday….
Well, I guess that’s about it for now. I hope you guys have a wonderful start of a new year and I wish you all good things!
****This post was written and the picture was taken on my new Galaxy Note 10.1 that David gave me for Christmas. I’M IN LOVE! Sooo….if this doesn’t look right, I’m still trying to figure everything out and I can’t find spell check ,LOL
Be Well and Happy Tuesday!
