First things first: a news flash! Jenn has started a toy knit-a-long! Yes, a knit-a-long for those who are making toys. You must join. We all must join. Let the parade of cuteness commence!
Spring time is always a chaotic time for me at work and in my community commitments. Renewal, rebirth, reinvigoration, and lots of work. In all the craziness, little things are really important to me; small pleasures that quiet the space around me.
Walking in the woods and listening to bird song: Sunday and Monday we walked in the high Pisgahs - the mountains of southwestern North Carolina - and heard many birds calling out for mates. I have a beautiful song! I can build a snug little nest! Pick me!
Knitting a little: in the car, a few minutes early in the morning when it is still very quiet, late in the evening when the pair of owls in our neighborhood are hooting. I like having a project with a destination, but no deadline. This will be a Green Gable for me to wear in the warm weather.
Tea: morning tea with the cats and the newspaper keeping me company, mid-morning tea with my co-worker, afternoon tea in front of the computer, after-work tea with the news... very hot, milky and a little sweet... I can't imagine these busy days without tea breaks.
Sew Green: It's a thrill to have a new source of inspiration. I am thinking of participating in the 40-hour drought... could you do it? I think I may drink more water in a day than you're allowed to use in the 40-hour period...
Watching the garden grow: these little sprouts will be radishes.
