February has been the month of doom at our house. From colds to colic to more colds and more colic … lets just not talk about it. Between bouts of screaming, crying, whining, packing, hot tea, more coffee than I should admit to drinking, and desperate prayers for just a hint of spring, I have been keeping busy 😉
I’ve been knitting a few things, felting a few things, reading books and magazines made of paper (old school, right?), and I finally finished up my first “for sale” dolly.
We will be moving soon, and I am fairly preoccupied with that. Packing with two littles underfoot is not a treat.
I picked up a new rotary cutter for sewing that I am dying to try out. And I think I have completely forgotten about the Art Journal project I was working on. I should check to see how behind I am in that one. Life never stays on that even keel you find when you sign up for things, does it?
Ah well, no worries. I have goodies coming in the mail! I am having so much fun getting back into sewing and knitting bigger projects, add to that the awesomeness of packages in the mail, and I think I can probably deal with just about anything. I may have to do more of my shopping online. Would that make me a shut in? I do go out for groceries … and coffee when it is not -20 (we all need the exercise when we can get it).
I have also become addicted to the magazine Taproot. I may subscribe after we are settled in the new house. I am in love with the simple life. I like that even in a busy city like Calgary, I can live at my own pace. I have discovered that that is what is keeping me sane out here. I don’t need everyone around me to live the small town life. I can do it in my own neighbourhood on my own block.
Well, it’s time to get dinner going – have a coffee on me 😉
