How many times have I written the phrase “the last few weeks have flown by” or “life is super busy right now”? It seems like that is always true, I’m not complaining about being busy because life has been anything but boring lately but when I get stressed out by work or feel like there is no time in the day for important things like knitting…..I try to stop and focus on the little moments of fun that make up life here and now.
We went on an adventure up to North Carolina and got to experience autumn. South Carolina has a little nip in the air in the mornings but it isn’t enough to even need a coat yet and it’s hot again by lunch time. So looking at all the beautiful colours of the leaves both on the trees and covering the ground was breath-taking and so much fun to photograph.
I found this really cute post-card to send to my little brother at home in Ireland. The last one I sent him was from Myrtle Beach, he loved it but then took a notion and told me not to bother sending anymore and then changed his mind again (he’s stubborn but fickle – one of the many interesting and at times difficult facets of his special needs). But I knew he’d get a laugh out of seeing this little bear.
Boomer and I started running this week, which has been majoring eating into my evening time knitting but boy are we both sleeping well at night. I’m jealous of the naps he gets to take with his little elephant while I go to work though.
Thanks to the running I can almost justify the amount of bread I’ve been making (and eating) lately. With just the one soft white bread recipe I’ve turned it into baguette rolls, small round rolls and this delicious bloomer style loaf. I even made some little rolls with poppy seeds on top during the week which was fun. If I wasn’t running out of flour I’d probably make more this evening too!
So yep life here and now is busy but fun!
