things i have been looking at over and over:
this hat which i just can’t get off my mind. i might have to buy the pattern and knit a few up for some local women i barely even know who happen to be pregnant. just because that hat – it is making me crazy i love it so much.
are there enough hours in the world for all this knitting i dream of?
my lovely and talented sister in law has some nice photo’s up from the time they spent in aiken over christmas. if you want a sense of where we were for the last six weeks take a peek at the four leggeds and other sights.
i am wondering if it is overly ambitious to try this with my very young children. it looks so lovely, repetitive, meditative, and simple really (like knitting) and our juniper wreath is at the point where it really needs to be taken down but i am struggling to say good bye to it. i have loved this wreath. the scent. the way it was seasonal but not too too. the scent, the scent, the scent. love.
this post spoke to me of some of the things i have been realizing lately. i am too hard on myself. i set my expectations too high. i get frustrated with myself to easily when i feel like i am not the perfect parent, wife, home maker/keeper/creator. just going down the road reminds me of just because in some ways.
how sweet are these? i love the valentine idea. of course, then i’d have to let the kids water color. ok, scratch that! pea and paint just seems like an idea best saved for warmer weather when i can hose her down. and do the activity outside.
i keep thinking it’d be fun to do a “reader” meme where people share what blogs they follow on their readers? i try to keep my reader numbers low so that i am not on the computer too much. in fact, lately i decided i was only reading blogs that lift me up – mentally, emotionally, spiritually, as a parent, as a woman, as a person. that helped me to weed some out that i like but that were not adding to my life. you know?
anyway, i thought it might be fun to share what is on my reader and have other people share what is on theirs. would you do it? is it too personal? hmmmm.
ok, end of randomest post eva.
