Dear friend, In the past, I may have taken a quick glance at the flowers, or smelled a rose, but for the most part, I took it all for granted. Now, through the lens of my camera and pausing for the time it takes to capture the shot, I see the true beauty nature offers, and I often gasp in awe at its flawless design. To my humbled surprise, even a weed is truly beautiful! So, before we chat a little more, how about a tiny tour? I'll name it, Gems of Spring!
So, there you go! :)
It's 5:30 a.m. and I've been up for a while, seeing my oldest off to work another day at the voting polls. I can hear the soft sounds of the birds who are up early with me; sweet chirps, that break through the dark, cold morning. Most of us in the house have colds at the moment, so this might be a slow day, and there will likely be more soup made. My husband called in sick and that rarely happens. That's when I know, there is something going through the house!
I've been doing a little crochet and a little knitting and enjoying the slower pace really. I ditched the first doily pattern and found another with clearer instructions. Since I don't crochet often, it takes a little work to figure it out, especially with a small needle, but the process is fun if the pattern is well written.. The scarf progress is continuing as well. I think I'll be working on this today, while sipping nature's cure all. Sweet, hot tea!
Yesterday, I made myself set up my sewing machine (at the dining room table), even though I didn't really have time, or should I say, energy, left at the end of the day. I had tucked my machine away at Easter. I didn't sew anything yesterday, but just setting it back up will get me sewing soon I'm sure.
Before we part today, I have a wish….
I wish…you are happy and that you feel peace in your heart today. May the path you take, always lead you to a happy home. Jeannine:)
