I woke up too early today and then found my brain suddenly full of worried thoughts – flitting back and forth from one worry to another. Of course, every worried thought is a projection, a ‘what if’…and before long they take over and you realize that you are certainly not living in the moment. I’ve always been a worrier. When I was a little girl I would lie awake at night worrying about school or what happens when I die or would I be picked last for a team in gym class. I’ve managed to let much of the chronic worrying go as I’ve grown older, but if I’m not careful…it can erupt again.
The sun has come out. That helps. And writing about it to my dear blogging friends helps. Thanks for being there.
On to Square #4:
I did this late last evening and it truly was free form. I hope it is recognizable as a lavender bird sitting on a branch. I was playing with satin stitch. These tiny squares are playing havoc with my eyes. I had to resort to a stronger pair of magnifiers – threading the needle is so much harder for me nowadays than in my youth. Now I have to figure out today’s square…
When our dogs go out the door to their ‘corral’ they go uphill on a little path. Currently, the path is plain old mud because we’ve had so much snow melt. Every time the dogs came in, their paws were covered in mud. Husband went out and bought some shredded straw yesterday and the path now has a layer of straw over the mud. Less mud = more vacuuming, as the little bits of straw are all over the kitchen. That’s all I can see – straw – everywhere. Off to vacuum.
Have a great day.
