I have REALLY enjoyed getting my blogging mojo back.
It has been great to feel like i'm getting back into a rhythm again.
At first I wasn't sure how sporadic my posts would be, but I think I am aiming for at least a weekly post. A little weekly reminder to myself how my world has been
if when I look back at it.
I have spent this week in a whoosh. Is 'whoosh' the right word? Yes, I think it is. It's like someone has blown me along this week at an alarming speed. I've been here, there and everywhere. It's been a week where I haven't stopped to think and make plans. I seem to have lurched from one thing straight into another. I find these types of weeks hard, especially as I am a dreamer.....and procrastinator. If I don't get a fixed dose of these each week, I cannot seem to function at my best. This week, has actually been a week when I have needed that more than others too. I have needed to be able to have time to just think, and it's not really happened.
It has been a tiring week. The weather has been a mixed bag. We had big thunderstorms this week. We haven't had a good thunderstorm for quite a while. I do love them. I find that there is something so fascinating about angry weather. I do love to watch those programmes about the storm chasers. They are crazy dudes but I get their fascination and drive to be there in the middle of some really ridiculous weather situations. I was a tad irritated though, that it came right when the final of the great british bake off was on. Sit by the window or watch the bake off?
I feel like I have achieved a little bit this week though. Cake bakes made for school....laundry done (I loathe the monotony of laundry, and how whenever I get every last drop of it done and put away, I turn around and the piles again behind me are monstrous! Ever get that too?)......I posted off the Innocent hats......I donated blood.....I was a HUGE taxi service to my children this week (I felt like I practically lived in my car).....I got a few rows done on my blanket and made a start using the turquoise yarn I bought a few weeks ago.......I made a couple of pot holders......I ate space rocket crumpets with jam......I sorted china and blankets.....happily watched the rising sun glow across my dresser.........and loved viewing snippets of colour throughout my house.
I guess, I have achieved a fair amount. It's funny how you don't think so until you stop and make a note of it. That's where noting down these things pays off. I don't feel so rubbish about my week now! I've got little bits done here and there on the crafty front, but it all feels quite itty bitty.
I do feel though that I would really like to start a project that I have given quite a bit of thought too. I feel like the last 10 projects have been things sort of started on a whim without any proper thought. Well, except for the baby blankets. I did actually give those more than a few seconds thought.
I guess, I would just like to start something that is not started on a whim, as most of my projects seem to be. So I am on the look out for something to really get my teeth into. I do have a long list of things that I have been wanting to make for like, EVER, but I just would love to make something that really grabs me.....and truly absorbs me. Hummmmmm, I might have to spend a bit of time on Pinterest searching for some inspiration to start the project of all projects.
Having said that though, this is not the time of year to be starting big projects really. Now is the time when I start to get twitchy, and the stress levels rise slowly. It all just gets manic from here on in until after christmas. I usually dread this all. I cannot seem to change my thought on it. Maybe i'm thinking, a project might be a good distraction or de-stresser. We shall see. Maybe just searching for inspiration and finding a project that I think I would love to start will be enough, rather than actually starting it.
Today though, I am not alone. I have Baby Bear at home with me, feeling a tad under the weather. So we are having a snuggle day. I Like days like those. The coffee pot is on and gently wafting its aroma over the house. The lamps are on. The hot water bottle is filled. Books are beside me to enjoy whilst Baby Bear snuggles and drifts in and out of sleep. This will be my day.
I hope that you all have a beautiful day, wherever you are and what ever you are doing....
