This week I was going to be organized and finish things, celebrate with family and friends, but still clean out closets, find new recipes to cook in 2015 and move forward on lots of things that aren’t paycheck work. But instead I did something that I forgot I love, I meandered.
We had lovely celebrations some at a big table over food, some sprawled over coaches and chairs with movies. In between I baked, I spent time with the kids cleaning their rooms, I read four books in a week, I made pom poms for a door decoration
And I knit some handspun into lace for no other reason than I thought it would be beautiful. I picked a pattern so easy I knit it at a movie theater and at the Nutcracker. It will block to almost twice the size and it will be a ginormous loopy scarf when it’s done.
There is still work going on, but lots of people are off or just working at a mellower pace. No big deadlines, just slowed down and meandering.
I hope you all had a restful week and I wish you a Happy New Year!
