I’ve just finished my lunch. Eaten outside. No jacket on. Patches of snow scattered around the yard like little islands. February in New York. Pretty much unheard of. The last I checked the temp was 72 degrees fahrenheit. The sun is shining and I’ve just hung the freshly washed winter jackets on line.
I’m sure this string of warm days won’t last so I’m soaking it all up. This type of weather gives me lots of creative energy and desire to start new projects. It also has me dreaming of plants, road trips and all the good things that go along with warmer weather.
I finished up my Rosemont Cardiagn recently. I’ve only been able to wear the sweater a few times because it is very warm. I love it though. It feels like a big hug when I put it on.
A few days ago I started my Find Your Fade Shawl. It’s such a joy to work on. I’ve even dyed one of the yarns myself which I can’t wait to use. It’s going to fade from the green to a light yellow to pinks and end with a very pale pink.
And because I’m feeling called I thought I would share a little joy and gratitude list.
1. The warm weather.
2. Getting a haircut and highlight.
3. Starting a new book.
4. Seeing my daughter with a beautiful smile after having her braces taken off.
5. Dreaming of the warmer months ahead.
6. My orchid blooming.
7. Hamburgers on the grill.
8. Walks outside.
Please share something you’re enjoying.
