The sun is shining briefly after a shaky start.
I have a playlist on to keep my spirits up. It was a choice of calming and soothing or upbeat and jump about crazily. I surprised myself and went for upbeat. Jumping about in amongst crockery stacks to sort my washing......looking like a right old idiot. Paint on my hands, paint flecks on my face and hair....and no matter how hard I try.....polly filler blobs on counter tops.
The chaos of my life at the moment should call for soothing music and calm moments (remember those New Age whale tapes you used to get? I should be playing those), but, the sun is out, and when that baby shines, it makes me feel productive. Grey clouds and rain make me want to hibernate. I always feel like a butterfly emerging from a cocoon when the sun dares to grace us with its presence.
My house is a T....I....P
It's laughable. I have to laugh or i'll cry! Just another couple of weeks and I should begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Not known for my organisational skills, I haven't planned well. Cups, plate stacks, pots and pans are scattered here, there and everywhere.
The Bears are fed up. Fed up with trying to find things to put their food on. I keep moving it all too, just to make it all the more annoying for them.
Painting, sanding, and coming up against hurdle after hurdle. It should have been so simple for a teeny tiny kitchen. Huh, who was I kidding!
To keep calm I have been working on the above bit of knitting. Having a
slightly unhealthy love affair with moss stitch, and seeing a rather gorgeously inspiring piccy on Pinterest, the above was born.
Once again, being bored to death with it. I thought it was a good bit of plain practice. My speed is getting up there and my tension is better and more consistent......but it feels like i'm getting NOWHERE! Grrrrrrrr, boy, do I LOVE the speed of crochet. I fear this may be a MAJOR drawback in the whole getting to grips with knitting thing. Really not known for my patience, i'm going to really have to push through this boredom factor.
However.......I will be in love with the above project when it is finished.......I JUST KNOW IT. I've already got my threads picked out and some fabric in mind too to finish it off. It might just be finished next year though.
So.....in the meantime......
Flowers.....well....because i'm feeling stressed.
A great stress reliever for sure.
Colour.....because I need it.
The glow of some early morning sun. It fills me with immense joy.
Apricot and aqua. A combination I LOVE
And Hyacinths, because I simply cannot get enough of them.
Right......I hear the spin of the washing machine end.......cue more stupid dancing....
