I’ve been embracing the buzz of the creative spirit. I’ve been thinking about the owl design. It needs to be perfected and hopefully a plethora of owls will follow. I have a bunch of jewelry designs bouncing around in my head. I have been thinking of that lovely lavender yarn I purchased about a month ago and how I really should knit a little gauge swatch with it so I can cast on the cardigan. My knitting has been focused on that baby blanket lately, a project that requires little thought. And as much as I love watching it come together, I need something that challenges my mind a bit more. And lastly, I need to finish the brown dress. I decided to pull out a bunch of stitches on the front between the bodice and the skirt to re-work the gathering. Tonight, I’m hoping to re-attach those two pieces and move closer to finishing. And, I need to figure out what pattern my gorgeous kelly green fabric will emerge as….
I’ve been taking a little longer to stop and smell the roses, both figuratively and literally. Rosy and I have enjoyed more walks, breathing in the variety of blooming plants in the neighborhood. I have allowed my brain to go still for (slightly) longer. I have listened to the lyrics of songs more, marveling at the way the words are woven together forming a verbal tapestry. I’ve written thank you notes to those who offer blessings to my life. I’ve been better at savoring every minute. I love the stillness of summer, the possibilities a more open schedule affords me.
