I'm still here.....

I never really went away.  I guess I've been on a break.  I hope you all haven't given up on me.  The slump hit hard and there may still be some of it lingering about but I am going to push through.  I am sitting here at work, hating the piles of files on my desk and dreading to do anything.  That's not good.  Work is just wearing me down. It will get better, I know it will, it has to.  I am so thankful to have a job.  (I am blogging during my break time.)  I have missed you all so much.  What can I tell you about?  It seems like so much has happened, but then it seems like things are normal as usual.  Easter was wonderful, Mothers Day was great, I had another birthday,  my kids are great, grandbaby is awesome and life in general is good. I'm still not crafting much.  I think I'm looking for something new to try.  I don't know what it will be but when I find it look out.  I do need to work on a couple of prayer shawls for graduates and a couple of baby gifts.  That might be what I need to get me kick started.  

So enough about work and the slump and whine, whine, whine.  Here is the newest addition to our home.

Hubby finished the keezer.   Isn't it gorgeous!  I can't imagine the hours he has put into building this masterpiece.  Lots of late nights in the garage.  Yes, hubby has skills!  I love the cherry wood he made the cabinet from.  The color is so nice.  I love the 4 kegs of home brew it holds too. :-)  Yes, this sits in my dining room and is probably the nicest piece of "furniture" we have.  It really is nice.  Hubby still has a couple of things to do to it before he considers it complete.   I will show you an updated picture when he gets that done.   

Thanks for waiting out the slump with me and checking in.  It means alot.
