Good Morning and Happy Sunday! I know that it is mid-August, and it is supposed to be sweltering. Have to admit I am loving the cool mornings. The forecast says temperatures will be in the nineties all week and I am not looking forward to it. Hopefully it will be the last of the super-hot days and we will slide softly into fall.
Things are holding steady as work with preparing winter files for the proofreader and reviewing the spring files that are coming in. A few changes happening and I am hoping to still get to work on the photo shoots. There is one in a couple of weeks, so fingers crossed.
This was a braid of Frabjous Fibers that I picked up at Webs last September. The fiber blend is 70% Blue Faced Leicester and 30% silk. I plan to chain ply it to keep the colors together.
As for me this week has been a slow slide into routine. Somehow the days have more time in them, and I don't feel rushed. There is always more to do and more to learn. Maybe I'm being more deliberate with the use of time, and it makes me feel that I have more. It is interesting how the words you use to describe something can also influence your reaction to it. I was going to say that I have indulged in some self-care over the last few days, however it was not an indulgence. This self-care was needed and wanted, doing things that fill up your cup of self are never indulgent, they are necessary. The worries will always be there, taking care of yourself makes them easier to carry.
This week! Move-in at RPI for Amanda, the first full week of classes for Serra with the hopes that she feels up to it tomorrow. Me? A pattern to write, work to tend to, and dreams to ponder and keep aiming for. Breathe, glow, smile, be, Love, take care of YOU and I'll be back next week :)
