Dogwood Season and Learning
The dogwoods are in full bloom this week. I'm lucky to have many trees growing wildly on my property. Once the dogwoods bloom, I can safely believe spring is here. Yesterday, Frodo and I took our daily walk in sunshine and warm breezes. No jackets required.
As I look out my windows, I see green everywhere! Last night, a neighbor was mowing for the first time and the hum of the tractor reminded me of summer time. Hopefully today, my husband and I will get the swing outside put up and ready decadent idleness. Before you know it, the pool will be opened!
This week had me struggling again with technology. I keep thinking I'm winning the war, but those battles are wearing me thin. Honestly. I sometimes feel like I'm missing something. However, here I am with imported photos and typing away so I do know enough to get by.
Always learning is a key to growing. I like that I have that stubborn streak that doesn't quit no matter what. I have been like that since forever. My mother used to be frustrated with my tenacity. I was a difficult child at times (who me?) especially when I was learning something new.
I get giddy with that overwhelming feeling of never understanding to the yielding of the 'ah ha' moment. When everything clicks, makes sense and gels together cohesively. Those learning moments are the rewards of learning new skills. I don't quit because I know the reward.
When I knit I'm the same way, I will stick to the task and keep at it until I get it. I take pride that I learned all of my knitting skills before technology. Books were my learning medium.
So while those dogwoods are blooming and showing off, I'm going to investigate, learn something new and apply my newfound knowledge.
