Things I Used To Enjoy

Thur 1/3 Blog Prompt
New Year, New You #3

Is there something that you used to do and enjoy that you would like to start doing again? Tell us about it

1. I would like to start quilting again. I haven't had a chance to quilt in a long time. I thought I would be able to quilt when my son started school but that hasn't happened.
2. I would like to start doing web design again. I have forgotten everything that I have learned so I will have to relearn how to design again. :(
3. I would like to start making grapevine wreaths again. I haven't made one in a longggggggg time. I enjoyed going to the craft store and picking out things to put on my wreaths.
4. I used to enjoy baking cookies during the holidays but I haven't done any baking for a while. Every since my Dad died in Dec of 2001, I just can't seem to get my holiday spirit back. The holidays used to be one of my favorite holidays, I enjoyed decorating the house and baking cookies. Now I feel like I'm just going through the motions. I try to make it magical for my son but it is hard.
5. I used to enjoy traveling and seeing the sites. I used to fly places. go on cruises and just taking day trips within California. Now I just want to hole up in my house and not go anywhere. I would like to take some trips and show my son some of the sites before he gets too old to want to do that. My hubby tries wants us to fly back East during ski week but I don't know.


  1. Making wreaths & quilting sound good to me. I hope you do get around to doing some more trips with your family.

  2. Quilting looks beautiful but it looks so hard! I can do basic web design but I wouldn't mind learning more stuff. Luckily we are able to do a lot of traveling since I have some commitments to fulfill for the next 2 years. Good list!

  3. Those are all really great things to put on your to-do list! I hope you get to do them all!
