Just like the Catholic Church, I'm in Ordinary Days. We are truly in the winter season and the wind is cold. I am wearing my wool socks and wool sweaters daily. Whenever I'm outside I have a hat, shawl/cowl and knitted mittens. I'm not complaining at all, I would rather freeze to death than sweat to death. My husband is withering away though, he loves summer and hotness.
Have you noticed the days are getting lighter and lighter? Truly one of the blessings of January and February. It might be cold out but the daylight lengthens and brings hope.
This week I've been focusing on lots of journaling and reflections. I find comfort in putting thoughts down to paper and mulling over all of my wispy threads on life and happenings. Along with daily writings, I've been meditating twice a day using the Insight Timer App, which I highly recommend. There is plenty to do that is free. I chose a year subscription to get to the courses. I'm sleeping so much better these days.
After the Bernie Meme and the craze to duplicate those mittens on Ravelry, I cast on a pair for my husband. While they fit my hand, they might be too snug for him. Sooo, I'm hoping that when I block the daylights out of them they will fit, if not the mitts are MINE.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with joy and peace. Thanks for visiting and reading this space.
