Feelings, February and Food.

My mosaic blanket – The Queen CAL.

Have you ever had a feeling that something bad is about to happen?

That feeling that sticks in your gut? It is nearly like you’ve been to the doctor and you are waiting for your test results. And it tends to stick, at least for a day.

I get that quite often, and I’m not sure how to interpret it. Is it normal anxiousness? Is it my sixth sense warning me about something I’m too dense to see?

I should probably start writing down when it happens and for how long. Maybe I can then pinpoint what triggers it, and if it has any validity. Other than that it does ease a bit when I take deep breaths, so at least I get enough oxygen for that day! I don’t like it when that happens, but today is a glorious day, so I will not let it spoil the day for me.

It is already the last Friday of the month. Monday is not only the start of a new week, but also of a new month. Have you had a look at your calendar yet? February is a perfect month this year. A beautiful, exact 4 week month – Mon. to Sun., four times. 🙂

I have at last finished my mosaic crochet baby blanket, as you can see from the picture above. It is one of the most enjoyable items I’ve ever made, and even though thousands of people have made much prettier and larger versions of this same blanket, I am quite proud of how it turned out. I will most definitely crochet a much bigger one in future.

I feel like something yummy to go with my afternoon coffee today, so I’m thinking that I’ll make a different version of the loaf in this previous post – I’ve got oranges, so I’ll swop the lemons for oranges, maybe add some rosemary to the syrup for an extra touch. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

You guys must have an awesome weekend, stay safe, stay happy!!! I’ll play you out with one of my favourite songs! Enjoy! 😀

Myday. :)

Gerbera, up close.

So, my SO* left around three this morning – and here I was, all alone on a Sunday. 😦

Sunday is not my favourite day of the week – never had been. Alone on a Sunday, I like even less. But I’m starting to get used to it now. I think I will change it to ‘Myday’. I will from now on, on a Myday, do totally what I want to, even if it means I do absolutely nothing for the whole day!!! And I’m going to do it without feeling guilty about it. (Yaaaa right…) Unless I want to do something, of course…

Today was spent mainly trying to finish a mosaic crochet blanket that I started a few months ago, and other things kept distracting me from it, like beanies for my son and granddaughter, a waistcoat for my mom, and the fact that I’ve run out of yarn, and couldn’t find any for a while because of – you’ve guessed it – Covid!!! I also took Daisy for a longish walk, and I watered part of the garden.

I spent some time catching up with my youngest in Ireland, which was the best part of the day 😀 , and I had clients wanting to look at some plots and houses – on a Sunday, a Sunday afternoon…. Oi! Hopefully something comes out of it.

Now I’m going to seriously sit down and try to finish that blanket, then at least I have something to show and tell for tomorrow’s blogpost!

Enjoy the rest of your day/evening, chat again soon. 🙂
