happy friday lovelies. has it been a lovely one? this week has been a good one. it had moments i was wishing my way out of and ones i wished didn’t end. and, between all of those minutes, there were dishes, desserts (which i should have passed on), laundry, snuggling and cat fights (no cats involved, only children). it was good, even with the bad, because it was life lived. hard, and good, and true.
i picked up my knitting needles this week. they’ve been hiding out in my closet for about 4 years, and every time i run in to grab a sweater, they whisper my name. i have no project or purpose just an urge to use my hands and find another way to relax. i picked up some leftover yarn, and am now in the middle of making a (probably half) scarf that, likely, no one will wear. however, roccco thinks its a blanky and it just might work as that, for a stuffed animal. i just wanted to get the feel of it again and see if i would remember. i did. when i’m ready for a project i think i might make a blanket. i like the idea of doing something relaxing to create more rest and relaxation. if you have any patterns (on the easier side) or fave place for yarn, do share.
it’s still frigid here. snow falling. snow blowing. antartica looking. school was cancelled again, and by the looks of it, might be canceled, again, next week. this usually results in baking and tv watching. thus the muffins above.
happy weekend, i hope its just what you need it to be!
A FEW OF MY FAVES THIS WEEK +
01 / instead of asking, “how was your day?,” ask the right questions. loved this article.
02 / easiest DIY ever that i think i’ll try.
03 / a new travel site – the exploress. i want to be one of those.
04 / do you take coffee with your dessert? i do, but i’d like to try it this way.
05 / do you have mice? i’d be ok if a few came and lived with me.
06 / i’d like to encourage a little relaxation (and hopefully not covetousness).
