Happy 1/1/11

New Year's is a time to reflect and look forward. 2010 was a great year for me! We welcomed Colt Bryce McCall into the world (and what mention of my cutie-pie grandson would be complete without the obligatory photo to prove it?)
Or two...
I was fairly productive this year in the sewing department and hope 2011 continues in that vein. I am trying to be more fiscally responsible in the fabric aquisition. Most new fabric has had a fairly short shelf life, but I still have some pretty nice cuts waiting in the stash.  No ban on second hand fabric...Linda makes sure I see the new stuff when I visit my favoritie thrift store! I plan to grow a great garden this year. I'm running out of home grown canned green beans and I need to re-do my strawberry bed. I divided my rhubarb this fall and if Scrappy the squirrel doesn't ruin it by burying peanuts in my rhubarb bed, it should be okay. I extended out the raspberries to a full bed and soon as the weather warms I'll till in some chicken manure into my raised beds. I would like to keep a perpetual salad bed going this year so we can have fresh salad every night. Other than that, my goals for 2011 is to enjoy life, continue to prepare for retirement and spoil the heck out of Colt! That's a resolution I'm confident I can keep!
