I've been waking up at 4:30 a.m. each morning because of the time change that I haven't quite adjusted to as of yet. I've been taking advantage of my early risings with journaling and a bit of knitting. For over a year, my go to color for notebooks has been red, I see no change in sight.
Yesterday was rainy, drippy and all over wet. Frodo and I walked about the yard missing the crunch of the oak leaves. The scent of fall was in the air - earthy and sweet. Funny how I look forward to fall, leaves dropping and then I wait for some snowflakes.
This week has been good to me. I've slowed down and focused on the essentials for contentment and peace. I started a few new projects to knit, rewrote my Christmas list and to do lists. A big pile of books are waiting for me to start reading as soon as I finish my current read. Daily walks (unless there is rain), a bit of yoga and some vegetable eating overload.
I thought I'd share some links that I loved this week:
-under an english sky is revamping her grocery buying habits, you know I find this fascinating.
-mothering with mindfulness wrote a lovely letter to her son celebrating the essence of motherhood.
-Amanda has started a series about writing as work, part one and part two. The posts are interesting and I appreciate her thoughts.
Have a lovely weekend!
