Finally, after over a week of dreary rainy dismal weather the sun is shining this moring. It's still rather cool out, but that's ok. . . the sun is shining again! WOOHOO!
So my simple thing for today is the sunshine.
I had decided that I was going to try to make this year less stressful, try to eliminate as much as possible the things that stress me out. Well, nice thought, I don't seem to be doing very well on that so far. I did however realize something this morning and have made decision I began doing this year of simple things in an attempt to become more aware of the simple pleasures in my life, to be grateful for them and to fully realize the joy in them. Nice thought, except that some days I forget or don't have time to post, then I get stressed about not posting or recognizing my simple thing for that day, so I have made the decision that I will do it as it comes. I will not force anything and I will not stress over not doing it. I want this to be a pleasurable experience, not just another thing I feel like I "have" to do. And with that one small decision I feel liberated and feel that now I can have more enjoyment with this.
On the crochet frontier, I worked on my Seraphina Shawl yesterday and it is coming along quite nicely (Finally!). It has been a struggle, but I believe that the end result will be worth it. It is a very lovely shawl.
All of my plants look like death warmed over. I hope that with a little extra pampering that they will rally around. I lost almost all of my Streps, but it was my own fault. I got too busy and my plants got neglected. It happens. Oh well live and learn.
