This month was supposed to be the month of ‘me’. So far, it’s the month of everything else! Some things are unavoidable, so, I’ll just extend this 4 weeks for myself into February! I’ve been on the go since May, so I thought January would be a great time to take some down time and focus on pampering myself and spending time doing what I love.
The December Enlightenment Course went super well, so well that I am working on something new to be unveiled soon…yummy! And we have a number of other projects to work on: the kitchen renovation project will start in April so we’re in the midst of deciding paint colors, tile, flooring and lighting. Another project crowding my brain is planning the trip to Scotland with grandchild #2. I’ve been there before so it’s not a complete scour, but still lots to figure out. The book is starting to coalesce into something with a real direction, and that is scary and exciting at the same time!
Right now I am still quilting the second quilt, which was supposed to be done for Christmas 😦 but I am making some fabulous socks!
This shot was taken in the car on our way to CT…aren’t the colors amazing! Here’s the finished sock:
These are going to be great for wearing on the cold mornings. I can’t believe I have fallen in love with something I resisted for so long, sock knitting…..second one is half done!
I have to share my favorite Christmas present…..this precious tea cup with it’s own strainer and lid….LOVE!
I use it every day for my chai.
I have started another sweater for myself, having not finished the last one yet….did I say it was the month of me? 🙂
The blog was on the backburner for December as I was busy with the online course and the December scrapbook, but look for more regular posts from now on!
