The Morning Star at my Door

Felt like I had a good start on the blog. And how many months have gone by without a post? Ah, well. This really is for me, my personal journey.

So, I have been struggling a bit with time management. I really want to have time for antiquing, reading, gardening, exercise, bible study, blogging, biking, crafting(want to start a penny rug!), regular facials(and by that I mean more than 2 a year), baking, yoga, weekend day trips, housecleaning/decorating, staying healthy and WORK.  What I seem to make time for is Facebook, Pinterest and laundry(washed, dried, but not folded and not put away).

On the positive side, I was successful in making it to the last Allegan Antique Fair of the season with my friend 2 weeks ago. My front door is now adorned with my “find”. This symbol in Latvian pagan times is called “Auseklis”, an 8 point morning star that was thought to ward off evil. It’s made with old fencing. I love it! We also went apple-picking at Crane’s. Nothing like an apple dipped in caramel dip or turned into homemade applesauce.

Hello! I am a daughter, sister, wife and mom. My proud accomplishments include being married to a wonderful man and we have raised two kind boys. I have two older sisters and we are first generation born Americans since our parents immigrated to the U.S. from Latvia in the 1940's. I rely on my faith in the Lord to help me keep putting one foot in front of the other.
