Here and Now
I just love the mood of the above photo, I snapped it yesterday morning to capture the green sheen of spring arriving and afterwards noticed the sunrise trying its best to break through the clouds. Isn't it funny how you focus on one thing and one thing only and there are so many other elements when you expand your awareness.
As you can probably tell, I've been diligently living in the now and ignoring the 'what ifs' of the future, well, I am trying my best to live in the now. Witnessing nature definitely places me in the here and now and I find it soothing to embrace the change of seasons. I'm grateful I live in the northeast where there are four seasons to enjoy.
I took an eight month break from sketching daily and now that I am doing it once more, I am loving it. I see so much progress from when I first started the practice. I'm confident as I continue showing up and sketching, my skills will continue to improve.
Now onto the Christmas stocking, I had enough yarn to only use one skein of red. I had less than 12 inches left. Talk about coming so close to losing yarn chicken, but the exhilaration I felt winning was exciting. All you knitters and crocheters know exactly what I am talking about.
I'm gearing up mentally to declutter my house. I haven't started yet but it's going to happen because I am writing lists of what areas need to be thinned out. We have closets to go through and the garage is packed with 'stuff' (his not mine...). It's time to jump into spring cleaning mode.
I hope you have a lovely weekend and thank you for visiting and reading. I enjoy your comments and friendships.
