4)  I was feeling creative the other day and although my inclination was to run out to Hobby Lobby and buy new stuff to craft with, I considered our fiscal situation and used my ingenuity.  And my stash of craft odds and ends.  And my backyard.

It’s not Rembrandt, but it makes me happy to look at because I made it and because I took time to be creative, which is something I don’t do often enough lately.

5)  I can’t believe it’s Daylight Savings time again.  That was fast.  Although I hate giving up an hour of sleep, I’m glad to see more light at the end of the tunnel day.
