Someday I will live on a large farm with wide open spaces where the kids can roam free and birds chirping and kids squealing with glee will be all that I hear. Okay, that and maybe a little bit of fighting now and then.
That is my dream.
Here is my reality.
We live right smack in the middle of the city in a noisy townhouse complex. It is busy, it is loud, and sometimes it is not very pretty. It is hard to be inspired here, so I use Etsy and Pinterest to give me inspiration.
I make time to nurture my passions (read more about how I nurture my passions on my post at the Homeschool Classroom). Granted, I don’t have as much time as I would like, but I am really working on making time to do the things that I love. Projects take much longer to finish than I would like, but they eventually get done (or they sit patiently waiting their turn in line to be finished).
I started out crocheting a blanket for my living room, but it wasn’t speaking to me, so I pulled it all out and started a bag for my wool. Did I mention that I don’t use patterns? I showed it to my friend Jenn and she loved it so much she asked me to make one for her and one for a gift. I didn’t have enough of the right yarn in the house to make 2 more, so I made one more and I parted with my first bag.
When Jenn came to pick up the bags I still hadn’t taken the pictures of them. I was sad to see them leave the house without a picture of them. Being the awesome friend that she is, Jenn snapped some really nice pictures of the two bags on her way home from my house.
Now, I need to get some yarn so I can make another bag for my yarn. Oh the irony.
I would love to hear what you think.
