February Surprise!

I trust this find you and yours staying well.  And maintaining your peace and joy in the midst of our topsy-turvy world.

February surprise for the Talbots – COVID.  What we thought was sinus stuff turned out to be the virus.  The big clue was my loss of smell and taste – ugh!  But overall, we got through with minor symptoms and a whole lot of love from friends.  I was blown away by the kindnesses – love in action- that folks poured out.  We are starting to get our energy back – I’m still waiting for smell & taste to return.  I’m sure that once this wintery weather gets past and some sunshine pours down for a few days, the recovery process will speed up. 

We are so looking forward to new hiking adventures this spring and summer.  I want to visit family in Maine this summer and do some day hikes along the way.  If you have any suggestions for hiking places between here and Maine, we’d be interested.

As we have been house-bound, I’ve stayed busy working on yarn-type projects – sweater & cup cozies.  I’m preparing this wise owl design to upload to Etsy. It isn’t a new design, but I’m ready to give it to the world. I’d like to share a freebie of the wise owl with you. Click here and fill in your email & first name. This will 1. add you to my email list for future updates & freebies and 2. get you the 11×8.5 printable PDF file of this adorable owl and poem. There are new bookmarks in my Etsy shop, to include the customized one I told you about a few months ago.  You can check out all my printable bookmarks here.

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.  Relax, He’s got this thing!

Hugs & blessings,
