Happiness Project

Lighthouse Alpena, MI

Marina Rodgers City

One activity that makes me very happy is going for long drives and talking. We did that last Saturday. I know that these activities are going to be limited with the increasing gas prices. I like the drives where we don't really have a plan and explore side roads we have never been on. It was a rare sunny February day, too nice to be inside!

Marian, look between the dock uprights and you can see the limestone quarry

I have been working very hard on several quilt projects. I am working on my  quilt book. It is slow going but making progress, however, no pictures to share. I have never tried anything like this so it is all new to me.

Much time has been spent peeling paper off the back of the Civil War Diary Quilt blocks. I have sashing fabrics and I am going to join up those blocks. The Farmers Wife blocks are going to take a back seat to the above projects.

All of these things make me very happy. The two themes are pursuing things that I am passionate about and spending quality time with those that I love.

walks and drives are great. With the gas going up, all you have to do it change it to, bike rides and walks....;-)

Good for you stepping out and doing something new - that book is an adventure I am sure. And peeling paper off of blocks - just know that each piece you take off is one more step closer to being done!! It is an adventure too!!

Have a great 'extra'day and a fabulous March!!
