Today is the last day for our little students. The teachers finish up early next week and then my work schedule can be more flexible. I am looking forward to:
More gardening – My flowers are starting to bloom and it makes me so happy to see that color as I stand at the kitchen sink.
More moving – I ran a 10k last weekend and have a renewed energy about running.
More reading -I have three boxes filled on my bingo card and I’m closing in on number three.
Off to visit Carole for her Thursday link up.
I finished my Birkin last night and it is blocking now. I tried it on so many time as I was knitting it and I think this will be a go to sweater. I almost gave up when I read the many comments about the fit being off. I was almost finished with color-work so I kept going and I am very pleased with the results.
Now, reading time. I have three Books and need help deciding which will be up next. One is an audiobook so I could do two at a time but I also have a non-fiction audiobook I wanted to start. Want to help me choose?
This one that is waiting at the library, or this one that has been waiting on my Kindle, or this one that is on the PBS Great American Read list.
Be sure to visit Carole for more three things posts today.
Just dropping in to share three things I have been noticing (with thanks to Michelle for the prompt):
I am noticing that when he points, I need to pay attention. I love being surprised by what he remembers. Bird? I don’t see a bird but yes, that is exactly where we saw a bird yesterday.
I had to get my phone repaired yesterday and I noticed how unsettled I felt walking away and knowing I would not be able to text, call, or Google.
I am noticing the feel of a new pen on paper, the softness of my journal, the crispness of the pages of a new book.
head over to visit Carole today for more lists.
Today is the tenth day of the #100daysproject. It’s early here but I have already put pen to paper so it seems like a good time for an update and three things I have learned so far.
1. My original project name felt awkward so I have changed it to #100daysoffiberandink.
2. The fiber part has been easy- mostly because I keep my yarn next to my chair and can pick it up in the evenings when we are watching TV. But I also spent time sewing and sorting my fiber projects during spring break. Lots of fiber in my hands these first 10 days.
3. I am a morning person and on the days when I don’t pick up my pen early, it is harder to make that happen. Last week I ordered a bunch of photos to use as story starters. I am putting sticky notes on the back of each picture and will keep them in my knitting basket. That way I can write notes in between rows. It seems to have helped to stamp my journal pages with my TODAY stamp.
Off to link up with Carole and friends this morning. I’ll be back in 10 days.
You have to look past the drizzle and the grey sky but signs of spring are showing up in my yard.
- The yellow forsythia that mom bought for me 30 years ago,
- The heather that welcomes the bees,
- The green moss that I love even because that green is perfect.
Visit Carole today for more 3 Things lists.
- Trying this yogurt because so many antibiotics means it is time for some probiotic repair.
- Falling into this book – only about 25 pages in but I would love to sit here and read the day away.
- Caving in and casting on a shawl with this yarn because it is orange and was a gift from my sister.
And by the way, I took this photo at 7pm yesterday – the gift of daylight savings time.
Visit Carole with your own three things list today,
noun -a state in which opposing forces or influences are balanced.
I added this word to my “good words” list about 6 weeks ago when I was
struggling to find balance in the midst of feeling so poorly. I was thrilled to see
this word in Michelle’s morning email. And because it is Thursday, here are
three ways I am inviting equilibrium into my life.
