New Year - 2016

Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016.
There has been so many changes over the past year that have kept me busy beyond belief.

First of all, I had to go back out to the workforce world.  Not that I didn't work at home, because I did.  Between my craft & soap business, setting up and taking down the 'pop-up-shop' at all the numerous craft fairs and festivals all year, homesteading and taking good care of my family - I stayed very busy.
Financially, I had to do it.  My husband's job became so unreliable, I really had no other choice.
So in the beginning of 2015, I went back to work.
I have wanted to come back to my little space here so badly.  I enjoyed it more than I realized.  But that has not been possible.  The truth is, most of the time when I get home from work, I am done for.  I think a combination of my age, not to mention the fact that I have a terminal lung disease, and numerous other things like my laptop working only sometimes, hasn't been conducive of any photos or posts.  I do keep up on Instagram though.  It doesn't require a computer or much work, and I've made some good girl-friends on there that I enjoy talking to. 

Here I am today, squeezing in this time on my day off, when I really should be doing laundry or something.  Because heaven knows, I have laundry piled up and strewn around everywhere.  No joke. 
And if you know me in real life, you'd know that I don't roll like that - at all.  I do not function well in chaos and when my house is wrecked, yet somehow, I've been doing just that.  Weird.  I blame it on being too tired to care. :)

Christmas came and went, and to be honest, I was so very glad.  The blahs hit me hard this year.  Very hard.  I am thinking about sharing about it here, because if it could help one person out there who may be feeling the blahs too, well, then it would be worth opening myself up and exposing all that stuff.

(Isn't this mountain stream magical?  We found it on a Christmas day hike that my Hunny and I took.  I hope to go back in the spring with tripod in hand next time!)
I am on the up side of this year's blahs.  But there is one thing for certain.  I will order a new SAD light before next September, and I will use that thing all fall and winter long.  #SeasonalAffectiveDisorder
Happy New Year, friends!  May you be blessed abundantly in 2016.
