Feeling blessed and alive at 55!

I am extremely blessed to be at a position in my life where I spend my time doing things that truly mean a lot to me.  It was a year ago this month that I took that giant leap to focus on what makes me happy. 

My days include spending time with my grandchildren, crocheting, knitting, walking, volunteering, reading, teaching, taking naps, making new friends and just being happy!

This was a weekend of firsts for me.  My first time walking in back to back 5ks, my first time doing a trail race, my first time being part of a team for a race.  

The view along the Geat Pumpkin Race 5k. Oct. 11. 

These are the pumpkin hats that I crocheted for my team members. 

In addition to the 5k I walked on the 11th of Oct., I also walked in one on the 10th to benefit my granddaughter's school district. 
  For Saturday's 5k, I placed in my age group!  

To finish the hats in time for the race, I took a break from other projects so this week I'll be back to crocheting hearts for The Peyton Heart Project.  For October the hearts will be orange in honor of Bully Prevention Month.  

Other upcoming projects include a mermaid blanket for my granddaughter, a bear for a daughter, booties for a customer and maybe another piece for an art show. 
 And anything else that my grandchildren ask for :)

I hope that you're getting to do what makes you happy!
