Feeling Thankful

Here we are, last day of the year, 2016 just hours away. Brad and I are enjoying sitting in our recliners, just the two of us, watching Foyle's War on Netflix and sipping spiced cider after a productive day.

We ran errands this morning and Brad took our 15 year old grandson to the indoor shooting range to shoot his .22 rifle. Our daughter and grandchildren moved to Texas from Virginia back in July and we are so thankful to have them close to us and to be able to be a resource for them.

Brad is enjoying being off from work for Christmas and relaxing after a busy year at Texoma Regional Police Academy where he is the Director. He returns to work on Monday to finish preparing for the next day and night Academy classes. It's been almost eleven years since  he retired from law enforcement as head of CID for Sherman Police Dept in Sherman, TX. Since then he has been involved in the Academy as well as teaching Concealed Handgun License classes at Red River Firearms in Sherman. As of tomorrow, January 1st, those classes will be License To Carry, LTC, instead of CHL to reflect the new open carry law in Texas.

I've done a lot of spinning, a lot of knitting, and quite a bit of weaving this year with a lot of finished projects to show for it. I will focus on continuing to de-stash both fiber and yarn thru the coming year and make an effort to make my studio less cluttered and more efficient.

We both pray you all have a blessed and productive New Year in 2016 with good memories to look back on this time twelve months from now.
