Time to Rest & Dream, Camellia's, Thunder Bay, On

Now that all the presents have been unwrapped, and the big Christmas dinners have come and gone, some of us may be experiencing a mild meltdown with all the cleaning and housework and reorganizing that may need to be done. Unless of course, your family may be pitching in and doing it all for you..??!! Is that a disbelieving snort I hear in the background..??

I'm not going to spout about what the Trends are for 2012, or what Paint colours are coming in, or even mention the word New Year's resolutions....

I'm going to encourage you to do NOTHING..that's right...nothing. Take a break..relax, listen to music, go for a walk and enjoy the recent snowfall. It's o.k. to have a Lazy day , and to have a rest. We all know we really need a rest.

Look at the sunshine reflecting off all that snow...looks like diamonds twinkling....

What am I dreaming of? well, I am hoping to reorganize my sewing room, and get to piles of sewing and fun projects I so badly want to do!

Have fun just doing what you want to do!

Happy New Year from Camellia's!!
