#1839 More New Projects

What a beautiful and busy weekend we had! There is something about the nice weather that just makes us want to ‘do’ things, isn’t there? Even though Friday was a rather dark and dreary day, with heavy rain for most of the day, things calmed down by the evening and both Saturday and Sunday were…

#1838 Happy Mail and New Projects!

I’ll begin today’s post with some news that I just found out. My photos source for all my blog posts (Image Box) just informed me when I signed in that it is “closing” as of June 30th. Even though I haven’t been blogging much lately, I used to do so just about every day, so…

#1837 Fun With New Projects

As I try to achieve my goal of getting back to blogging more often, I wonder if showing you all the piles of wood that I cut interests you all. I wonder if they all begin to look the same to you or if it is really something that you enjoy seeing. Since much of…

#1836 Growth Spurts

Little by little, I am trying to get back into the habit of posting here on a regular basis. I find that I have been missing talking to many of you and when I don’t post for days or weeks at a time, the task seems daunting because there is so much information that I…

#1835 Finding a Balance

It seems like just about every morning I intend on writing a blog, and then I get distracted. By the time things settle down, it is usually too late to write a post. I suppose it is just part of the business growing, and that is a good thing. I do, however, miss talking with…

#1834 Lots of Fun New Projects!

I am finding that the greater amount of time between blogs is directly related to the amount of information that I want to share with you all. But that would follow common sense, wouldn’t it? It seems that it is harder for me than I originally thought to get back in the habit of posting…

#1833 Some Big Changes

As our small business gets larger and becomes more diverse, we are continually making changes – small and large – to accommodate expansion and keep everything running as smoothly as possible. This is one of those things that often goes by unnoticed by our customers but takes a great deal of time to accomplish. If…

#1832 Progress Report

I am trying to keep my promise to myself to get back to posting when I have made progress on some of my projects. With that said, I had a pretty productive weekend and wanted to share some of what I did with you all. I spent most of Saturday working up in my shop….

#1831 The Process

It’s funny how we fall into and out of habits. There are times when this happens with little effort or thought, and other times (usually when trying to develop positive habits) that it seems like a chore to follow through with things each day. There are also times in our lives when things change unexpectedly…

#1830 Brushing up on Organization

Those of you who know me realize that I am an ‘Organizational Junkie’. Yes – I am actually very proud of that fact. I grew up with very limited means and I was taught to respect and take care of the things we have. Throwing them here and there only causes them to get lost…

#1829 Changes

It seems so long since I have posted, that I almost forgot how to do it. (Not really – but you get the point!) The past month or month and a half have really been quite a change for both myself and my business. It is a good thing, but something that takes a bit…

#1828 – I’m Still Here!

It seems like it has been forever since I posted a blog. As a person who posted a new blog nearly every day for over five years, it seems that I have been quite lax lately in keeping up. I apologize about that. It isn’t that I am not busy. Quite the opposite is true….
