Perhaps maybe, snow will fall this weekend. Since I was a starry-eyed teen, I've wished for November snow especially on my birthday. My mother would be beside herself listening to Christmas music coming from my bedroom at the start of Halloween. She thought that was too early. I disagreed and played my Johnny Mathis albums as loud as possible while singing along.
Perhaps maybe I will finish my super secret knitting. I'm starting to feel the crafting ennui in the project but I'm ignoring that feeling and pressing along. I see the light at the end of the tunnel. I am so very very close! Once I finish, I can cast on something for myself.
Perhaps maybe this photo of Frodo with his wee tongue sticking out is the sweetest ever. He hates to be photographed. Camera shy? You know who else is camera shy? Those deer that are in my yard, they scamper away every time I see them. I know and you know, I will get that photo shot, I always do.
Perhaps maybe I will continue my news reading diet. I found my mind was cleared of doubt and worry by not reading every blessed article that was on my phone. Such simple things really and yet they are far-reaching and pack a powerful punch of lightheartedness.
Perhaps maybe I'll stick to my self-imposed reading schedule. I'm thoroughly enjoying my history book (Alexander Hamilton by Chernow). This year, I read more non fiction and found that I'm liking the gained knowledge. We should never stop learning. My grandfather was a strong believer in self education throughout life, he read many books and his ultimate goal was completely the New York Times puzzle in INK without the dictionary. I am in awe......I'm still a pencil user!
I suggest you take a class, read something outside your genre or try a new craft. Stepping outside comfort zones leads to loving your comfort zones all the more.
Perhaps maybe as I savor being with my whole family next week, I'll remember to take lots of photos to permanently document our gathering. Perhaps maybe, I'll just be in the moment and set the camera aside. Let's hope I do a little of both.
I'm getting excited about seeing everyone all together in one place!
Perhaps maybe you'll let me know what is on your mind. I'd love to know!
