3 Things Thursday

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.

Three weeks in

This #100daysoffiberandink project is really helping me to focus on TODAY. I have been enjoying some daily making time and an almost daily habit of getting ink on paper.

I ordered a bunch of photos (something I have had on my To Do list for too long). These photos are prompts for some of the memory stories I have been wanting to record.

And I am finally using this spring green yarn to knit a sweater. It is going quickly because size 11 needles and garter stitch.

So, 21 days checked off.

P.S. Check out this link from Amazon. The categories made me think of Mary’s Summer Book Bingo which will be here soon.

* I love my TODAY wood cut out, a gift the kind and generous Honore.

Three Things

I am declaring today, March 1, as the start of my 2018. Here are three things that I hope will help me relaunch this year:

  1. A new set of lunch containers to inspire my lunch packing,
  2. A new to me idea for keeping a notebook
  3. A new calendar of Pilates workouts and a monthly mission that is calling my name (the Sisterhood program is open for enrollment so if you are interested, take a look)

And a bonus idea for this first month of my new year, I am planning to take more pictures and excited about Michelle’s photo challenge.

*those little knitted chickens in the picture above were made by my daughter and I am thinking of carrying them in my pocket for some fun March photos

Magazine shock

I had some time between meeting last week and there happened to be a bookstore right there so I went in for a wander. I headed to the magazine section thinking I might pick up one or two gardening magazines. Have you seen how expensive they are? Yikes! I didn’t find one that I was willing to buy but I did see this issue of Paleo and with a coupon, it was a reasonable purchase. Guess I will go back to Pinterest and the internet for those gardening ideas.

P.S. my amaryllis is still plugging along. We have had the craziest weather – very cold and even snow but with the longer days, we might just have enough light for her to bloom before spring arrives.

#tinytinymoments

I appreciate people who remind me to pay attention to those tiny moments in my life. Michelle is one of those people. She recently asked this question:

What is it that I wish to cultivate?

Isn’t that a great question? I heard a similar question in Ali Edwards‘ One Little Word class. Ali wonders what we might be curious about this year. Great questions.

I have been struggling with my blog writing this month. And how did it get to be the last full week of the month? It was cold yesterday afternoon but the sky was blue and dry so we picked up our tiny person and headed to the park. This was grampa’s first time to get out of the house since his surgery last week and the first time to visit the park with us. It was very fun to stand back and watch these two explore.

And now I’m thinking, maybe Tuesday’s will be for #tinytinymoments. Maybe.

oh hello Friday

Up much too early today, my head swirling with the details of the day ahead. Classroom parties, parent group celebration, tidying up my desk so I can leave work at work for the next two weeks. Spent some time listening to Magpie Murders, knitting a few rounds, and writing in this beautiful Tumeric notebook. Time to make a cuppa and get myself ready for the day. Fortunately the Friday night wine and cheese have been acquired so the evening ahead will be a lovely way to begin Christmas break.

Happy Friday!
