Happy Family Day!

First off... 

If you didn't see it on the Balanced Needles Knitting & Quilting Facebook page, we didn't make the Top 10 for the MOMpreneur Award of Excellence 2013.  However, the experience was still amazing, and we are so grateful for all the great support shown by everyone.  Best wishes to all of the business women who participated in this year's competition.

And now for something completely different...

Happy belated Valentine's Day too. I'm so glad it's Friday, and that this is the Family Day long weekend, which means next week is February break!

I realize that not everyone gets the week off, I'm just lucky to work in an industry that does take the break.  The discussion around the staff room this morning was all about how many weeks until the next break, which really made me wonder if it has been an unusually busy six-week stint since we came back from Christmas, or if we're all just tired of winter and looking forward to the short break at Easter means we're looking forward to spring?

Plans around our household for the upcoming week include a lot of studying, Russ is working on his Masters and is taking a few distance classes from University of Tasmania, and sewing, I need to finish my sample quilt(s) for the "Bargello for Everyone" class I'm teaching at the Saskatoon Quilters' Guild Inc. Spring Retreat (May 10-12, 2013).  Unfortunately, this means that our 'tit nounours will still need to go to daycare for part of the week, but we should get in some good "mommy and me" time in later in the week.

Busy times, but all for the greater good.  Right?

Until next time,
