mission accomplished.

done. finished. complete. terminated. accomplished. executed. etc. 
I started it about 2 years ago and then I forgot about it. About a week ago, Rachel reminded me of it and I decided I should finish it, and now it is done! Woohoo! Yeehaw! :) I feel a sense of pride in my accomplishment. 1 project down, 1 million more to go. At least that's what it seems like. 

My hands were shaking when I took the photo, so that is why it's not centered. ;)
Now to finish my school. If all goes well, I will be finished at the end of July. Gotta catch up on all the school I missed at the beginning of the year. Thankfully, it is raining so I don't actually want to be outside. 

Rachel came across this adorable picture and I couldn't resist putting it up...

I have been doing really well lately. I've been busy with school and I'm in the midst of doing a whole bunch of projects. I'm crocheting a baby blanket that looks like this:

I'm doing it with Rachel and the colors are blue and green with white trim. Canucks colors. So far it is looking pretty awesome. 
I'm also in the midst of sewing a 4 block quilt/wall hanging. I'm almost finished with it. I just have to sew the back and the trim on. I'm feeling really productive with all the stuff I'm getting done. 

45. Seeing a bird sitting on the back of a horse.
46. Sheared sheep. This marks the beginning of the summer for me, even if there is no sun.
47. Baking cupcakes and icing them with Rachel.
48. Being homeschooled. When I get chemo brain I get to read all day. :)
49. Psalm 27.
50. Rain. It makes doing school during the summer all the more bearable.
51. Thunder. It makes rain all the more endurable. 
52. Betty-Ann. 

Ok, so this isn't me obviously, but I found it and I thought it was pretty epic.
