Comfort and Joy
How are you? Around here things are settling down in the daily schedule. All of my packages have been sent and I am officially done with holiday shopping! I'm looking forward to enjoying the lull between now and the New Year. I might do some Christmas baking, but then again, I might not.
These days what brings me comfort and joy are:
twinkle lights - slow and easy knitting - talking with the kids - a crossed off to-do list - sketching and doodling - knitting for myself for a change - knitting with really nice wool - simple dinners - bird watching through the kitchen window while I do some dishes - friendships in real life and on line - the kindness of others - outdoor holiday decorations - the colors red and green - fountain pens - journaling - aspirations for the new year - family living near by -
What brings you comfort and joy?
Yesterday we went out for an early lunch at a cafe in a local town, it was nice to be out - we rarely are out anymore and I have to say it will be many many weeks until we are out again. Of course I happened to be in a yarn store and of course I bought some yarn, as you do.
Frodo was out of sorts for a few days, I think he pulled a neck or back muscle - all he would do is sit and stare and refuse to eat off the floor, he wanted it handed to him. He's acting normal once again but gosh it was unnerving to have him stare me down. It was like he was trying to tell me telepathically what was wrong!
Holly is up to her antics, she gets super excited when it's time for bed and knows her nemesis will be coming up the stairs, she likes to hide and then jump out in front of him. He acts shocked every single time. Truly they are friends but at a huge distance and of course on the cat's terms only. Frodo never leads the friendships or interactions.
