Perfect World

 

Wasn't this week a rollercoaster with what the weather would be! We has sun, we had warm, we had cold we had a bit of a dusting of snow. I think Mother Nature is feeling all the feels this week. It doesn't matter to me, each day we are one day closer to warmer days. I'll take the occasional blast of snow in stride.

There's been lots of journaling as always. I find it soothing and therapeutic. So that is where I need to be right now in this moment. 

For April I am suspending my 'haiku a day' challenge. I might be haiku-ed out with thinking up my poems. I did that challenge both for February and March. I'm switching back to sketching daily with a sketching prompt from Doodlewash, they are great for some quick sketching ideas. This is supposed to be fun so my perfectionism is being set aside.

If we were living in a perfect knitting world, I would be telling you all about how I finished the sweater. Well, I have 10 rows to go and then it will be reality.  I'm confident that tonight I'll be putting away needles and markers and making room in my knitting bag.

Frodo definitely knows it's springtime. He wants in, he wants out. He cannot make up his mind and it drives me nuts. I love him. To be honest, I don't think he knows what he wants either.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday this weekend if you celebrate Easter.

  1. Beautiful sweater! I’m sure you’re ready to finish it now with only 10 rows to go. Sometimes the “homestretch”takes the longest to finish. Your sketches are lovely and the challenge looks like fun. Doodlewash does have some great ideas. Easter blessings to you and your family.

  3. That sweater is going to be so beautiful!
    I admire your perseverance with journaling. I wish I could do it, but even for something personal like that, I suffer from perfectionism... (and also the fear that someone will find my notebook). Wishing you a great weekend!

  13. I wish we were neighbors. I'd love to be able to dog sit Frodo. I'm still sorely lacking in the bullet journal department.

  14. It was just such a gorgeous Sunday (I braved the wilds and went to our Easter service in the park and it just might have been the best Easter service I have ever been too!)

    Here is to a swift 10 rows on that sweater! :)
