Right now I'm sitting in my family room with Frodo writing this post. The weather is freezing cold out there, brr. I like winter and snow - now I have to remember to bundle up and bundle Frodo up. I don't think there'll be a daily walk today. How are you? How are your wintry days going along?
My husband and I have been huddled up in the house. I am a homebody and loving it!
Right now, I've been squeezing in more reading during the day which squeezes out other creative pursuits. My long list of what I want to do can never be accomplished in a given day and I'm okay with that. I'm being realistic.
I came across an interesting saying that I thought I'd share with you:
You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can stop them from building nests in your hair - Chinese Proverb
I've been mulling this one over and over again. I plan to do a creative art journal spread with this quote in my big notebook sometime today or tomorrow.
Right now, the husband's first sock is at the heel turning! It's a nice project for these cold winter days and completely mindless enough for TV watching.
The photo below is where I sit and look at how I am trying to balance all the books I am reading. I keep moving things around to get the best scenario. That gray basket is flimsy so I'm swapping it out a woven one. At my old house I had a bigger side table that housed MANY books, yarns and stuff. This small skinny one is lacking space but I love the way it looks where it is. The black and white Vera Bradley tote bag is all of my current knitting projects (just two right now), circular needles and knitting tools.
Where ever you are I hope you are toasty warm if you have the winter season. Thanks for visiting and reading - have a wonderful weekend!
