I can’t believe that October is almost over — what with Halloween just around the corner. Wow. And before you know it, we are celebrating Christmas and then bidding the year goodbye. We always find ourselves caught unaware although the passing of time and the arrival of the end of the year is a given.
Life just takes us over. So back to the Monday ritual of writing random thoughts here. (I know, I’ve fallen silent yet again.)
My Art Journal: A new beginning. Yay! I’m trying to keep it small and simple — and I’m working off of upcycled paper. (Size: 5.5″ x 7″). I managed to create the cover page and completed around five 2-page spreads to journal in later. I am determined to get this going before the year ends, and I think for the first time in what must be around a half dozen tries, I’m going to get one going — FINALLY!
Granny Square crazy. I thought I would do this project for spring next year, but now it looks like I’m going to finish my sweater in a week or two. My crochet needles have been put to good use and if I could only start taking photos, I might actually be able to complete a post in the craft blog about it. (Neglected space… I am not proud about that.. but will get to it soon.) Crocheting has been very therapeutic for me, and I’m already on my 6th or 7th project for the year. (Three hats, two triangle scarves, one still in progress, and now, a granny square cardigan.) My hands have been busy, and I just love what I’ve come up with.
Back to meditating. One habit I’ve been trying to get back into is meditating — but sometimes it can be such a struggle to find the time, but at least I am trying and will hopefully get back to it with more regularity. Not because I’m particularly feeling stressed– I just want to get into the habit consistently. Fingers crossed.
