My Home and My Soul....

We had a fairly quiet holiday weekend....and we actually got some RAIN on Sunday!! That was a very nice surprise. But it came with lots of thunder and lightening so the computer was off quite a lot.

I managed to finish a couple of scarves for my Love Reaches Out project. You can see them here along with a WIP.

The house if officially off the market as of a couple of days ago and I feel as if I can breathe again! We will most likely try again at a later date but for now it's finished. I'm a little disappointed but also relieved. We want to move and have a quieter lifestyle but maybe this isn't the right time for that. Things always happen for a reason and I'm ok with staying here for now. I'm sure when we do move it will be the right time and the right place.

Since you know I love quiz thingies here's another one for you. This one came out just right for me!!! I got it from Debbi.

What color is your soul painted?


Your soul is painted the color purple, which embodies the characteristics of sensuality, spirituality, creativity, wealth, royalty, nobility, mystery, enlightenment, arrogance, gaudiness, mourning, confusion, pride, delicacy, power, meditation, religion, and ambition. Purple falls under the element of Earth, and was once a European symbol of royalty; today it symbolizes the divine.

  5. The thunderstorm moved up your way, I see - when I was at my daughter's on Friday, they got way more rain from it, than we had - we mostly had the lightning. Though I'm sorry things didn't work out as planned, I'm glad you're feeling ok with it and able to relax for a bit now, till the time is right.
    And how cool that your soul is painted in your favorite color! Gotta go take that quiz and check out your scarves. Hugs

  6. I truly do believe that things happen in their own time...and the same will be for the selling of your home. Does this mean you may be able to come to Arizona after all?(she says with her fingers crossed)
    Your scarves are fantastic..and that baby blanket...I love it!
    I hope the temps cool down soon!

  7. I'm sorry that things didn't turn out how you wanted... there has to be a reason. I'm glad that you'll be able to relax a bit now and even make some mess if you feel like it. I always do the little tests and I always (ALWAYS) have the same result as you. Isn't that interesting?!?

  8. Hey Janet...I am

    Your soul is painted the color grey, which embodies the characteristics of elegance, humility, respect, reverence, stability, subtlety, wisdom, strong emotions, balance, and cancellation. Grey falls under the element of Water, and symbolizes the moon, tide, ebb and flow.

    Cancellation? Is it am american thing? LOL! Is it like stopping a ferry ticket?

  9. You are DEFINITELY a purple! ha ha! I would love to move and yet the stress and work involved is surely daunting. I'm glad you're staying put for a while. Things that are meant to be will happen...what's that movie quote from Anna and the King? "Everything must happen in it's own time."

  10. I'm glad to hear you got some rain and like you I don't like to be on the computer if it is storming!

    Too bad about your home being taken off the market but like you say all things happen for a reason!

    Like you I do like to take those quizes and you can

    Color me Brown

    Your soul is painted the color brown, which embodies the characteristics of calmness, depth, nature, stability, tradition, poverty, roughness, down-to-earth, uncertainty, and neutrality. Brown is the color of the element Earth, and represents soil and, to a lesser degree, fertility of the Earth.

    I don't know that I understand all of this one but they are fun to do!

  11. Ah, and I am to the surprise of no one, Blue for my color. That is just right for me, and isn't it a relief to have a life again? Good for you guys.

  12. Good afternoon Janet,
    I took the test and I am Blue..You would have to be purple...it's just you.
    We are raining here also. We needed it too.
    Not selling your house at this time only means it isn't time yet.
    The market is really shaky right now. Just settle in for winter and enjoy each other.
    I come to see you everyday.
    As always so creative, I just have to get my Janet fix of the day.
    Big Hugs, Mary

  13. Haven't heard from you for awhile and tracked you down to say hi. Love the scarves--I'll have to get out the yarn as soon as it starts to cool down here.

  14. You are SO purple Janet. We knew you were!

  15. I am glad you and HB have decided to take your house of the market for now. It sounds like the time is not right for you at the moment.But I am sure when the time is right it will sell quickly and the the amount of $$ you are asking.

    Why am I not surprised your soul is the color Purple ? he he....How could it be ANY other color my Purple loving friend?

  16. P.SI found it interesting that our friend Zorana and you have the same results when you do these quizes. I think that is because you are both wonderful women with a similar outlook on life xoxox
