Making: I have been working very, very hard on a design for
little Omi. Designing is really hard for me, but I am catching on.
Seeing: A little more sunlight today. The last week has been really dark and overcast. I love the cold, but the darkness really bums me out. Its bright and sunny, so little and I are off to the park to soak up the vitamin D.
Smelling: Nag Champa.
Tasting: Coffee! This cup is from Columbia, dark and chocolatey.
Hearing: Julian singing a little song to himself in his room, complete with piano accompaniment.
Feeling: I struggle with seasonal depression (see above hah). I have dealt with it my whole life, oddly even as a child. This year it seems to be a little more intense, maybe because there has been no snow to reflect the little bits of sunlight we do get in the midwest winters. Today, I am feeling better!
Loving: Staying home, this past week I have really appreciated the situation we have.
Reading: Those awesome vintage books I picked up from the thrift store before Julian was born. The one with the dog in the egg is called, "How Fletcher was Hatched". It was printed in 1969, the year my mother was born, and she actually had the same book as a child. Im waiting on the beloved Elisabeth Zimmerman's Knitting With Out Tears, to help me construct this seamless bottom up set in sleeve baby cardigan! (Im crazy, I know!)
Praying: For direction for this blog, for my creative endeavors, for big decisions for our family. It seems like everyone around me is announcing a pregnancy, or welcoming a second, which makes me sort of miss being pregnant and snuggling a tiny baby. I know that right now is not the wisest time for our family to start planning for another, so I have been praying for patience, foresight and provision for our family and especially my husband.
How is your friday?
Thanks for reading!
