Slow as a Snail - Fast as the Hare

The last couple of months have been everything but what I would wish - can't we all say that??  I have been busy but yet feel like nothing has been done.  I revisit the same problems over and over even if they come in a different form... I am questioning all my beliefs yet believe that my all my questions have been answered, just not in agreement with them all.  My Oh My what is this gal to do????

I regret not writing until now but I truly did not have note worthy topics that I could share and most of what I have been a part of is not my story to tell.  I miss the days of sharing the adventures of my farm and the sweet souls who lived with me.  I hunger for note worthy ideas that might assist someone in their own muck and mud.  Instead I have been going round and round on a merry go round of people's drama that never seem to have an end or answer.  My New Motto is " NOT MY CIRCUS, NOT MY MONKEYS"  It seems to sum it all up.

Now before you think I am in doom and gloom I must stop here and say - I have been creating wonderful items that have gone to their new homes, getting a bit of my two living spaces to resemble more of what this gal loves and feels comfortable in. taking massive loads of on line classes to get a clear picture of my business goals, personal insights and future adventures and blessed to have some snuggle time with a stray cat I have named Elvira ( great job Conrad for coming up with the perfect name) - she is a god sent...

See what a pretty kitty - black and such a purring machine.  I can't tell you how much I miss having animals in my life that are not a emotional mess... 

One question I had of myself when I came here was could this gal be herself without her animals and farm.  The answer is Yes and NO...  Who I am has always been a animal owner, lover and caregiver.  I have always been independent and ran my own show without really having to think twice.  I have learned many lessons these past months some good and some not so good.  What I can really say is "Grace does Grace and really will not be anything but that - Even if no one likes or understands it"  So what does this mean???  Good question and I will start sharing those here again.  I have also missed all of you and your wonderful comments, sharing of stories and insights that you have given me over the years.  \

So for today I hope you might share something that you have been up to in the past couple of months so we can feel connected again. 
Love and Light All - hope to hear from you

I have been on hiatus all summer as well - too hot then too busy. Just getting back into making shrugs, spinning, and soon to teach a spinning student & a weaving student. I think it is good to take a break & come back with renewed energy & creativity. Love my animals too!

Hi Grace,
So nice to see you back again! Life is always full of new experiences, and learning isn't it? I guess if we stop learning, then there is nothing new to look forward to.
Love your new motto ... I DO NOT under any circumstance allow drama in my life. I use to think it was a teenagers game ... but, so not true! Sad really.
Anyway, hubby purchased a shop and opened his business in July.
With him being a, well aaaaa guy, he never has a plan. So we sat down and thought about where WE and the business want to be in 5 years ... so now, we have a business plan. Everyone, should have a plan, I know that somethings life throws us curve balls, and that making a plan, may mean we will have to readjust, but a plan is a must.
I know you will succeed, you can't help it.
You know what they say, if at first you don't succeed try try again! and again if you have to.
I'm sorry you are not able to have your animals. I don't know what I would do without an animal of some sort around me. Got to run and feed the girls ... tomorrow skirting this past springs fleece, to send out.
Anyway, nice to see you back up again. sorry about my delete!
Take care!

Hi Grace! So good to see you back in this space. Well, we had a rough couple months with some animals passing and an ongoing illness, but we also had a new baby!! So I suppose things balance out, and I'm feeling more positive these days. Been poking around your etsy shop - trying to find the time to get knitting again, and once I settle on some patterns, I'm going to need some of your gorgeous yarn :)

I always enjoy reading your posts. My life has been in total turmoil. Sound familiar? LOL Anyway, I think of you everytime I drive up to Denver on I-25 and pass the Larkspur exit. I never did get to see your farm and your animals, but your blog posts made me feel as if I had. I hope you are finding that life is opening a whole new wonderful chapter for you.

Sounds like you have all been busy with life and even when things are not the way in which we might want or planned I know I am surrounded by amazing folks who keep me going with their tales of life. Thanks for being in my world you keep me standing up and moving ahead.... Love and Light
