Guess what! I finished the wedding shawl and it is blissfully blocking and drying in a spare bedroom. The casting off took 3 hours. Phew!
I don't know what your weather is like but we are saying good bye to cool breezes and hello summer weather once more. Hopefully it will be a brief breeze by hello. I do like the cooler weather, I might think better and my knitting productivity goes way way up.
This week was kind of all over the place with scattered thoughts. I've had some minor stresses and that puts such a wrench in my day. Above all I chant 'this too shall pass' and realize that this moment is not going to be the ever lasting moment.
In these times I find just allowing myself not be so focused on productivity and trying and to be content with whatever I am doing while I'm doing it.
If I'm cooking or making dinner, I try to be present in that moment. I'm not sure why but just allowing a day to be non-productive is productive! I feel renewed.
I love this time of year for photographing. The leaves never look the same as they turn year to year. Today I noticed the maple tree in the backyard that is slowing turning a brilliant shade of deep gold.
As always thank you for visiting and reading this space.
