I am desperately trying to put off fall removal at our house.
I do a spring cleaning and a ‘fall remov-ALL‘…every room in this house is jam packed with STUFF we can’t use either because of the season or someone is growing or I didn’t like that particular basket under the table and had to replace it and now I don’t know what to do with this basket so I am going to hide it in the closet ‘STUFF’.
So I am procrastinating in the only way I know how…by exploring my yarns and trying to decide whose next in line for a fall hat…
oh the textures, the detail of the colors and the softness of the yarns…
begging me to get out my knitting needles and ‘come play with us’ instead of housework
my friend Stephanie is quite the artist…very inspiring.
She always tells me to feed my soul.
well my soul is VERY HUNGRY this season and desperately wants to knit and take pictures and take the kids outside and go on long walks, grill out, listen to the band Beach Fossils really loud, dance with my kids in our living room, drink a beer, eat salted peanuts, have long talks with my husband, surround myself with good people …
I have been noticing a lot lately…there are two kinds of people in this world
1. people who make you feel great about yourself. People who make you feel like no matter what you do, it’s the right thing to do or that you are capable when you doubt yourself. Positive people. People who accept you for the crazy zany sensitive person you are.
and the other kind
2. people who make you feel ‘not-so-great-about-yourself’. The people who make you feel that no matter what you do, they could have done it better. People that point out your mistakes ALL THE TIME. People who seem to constantly want you to change and adopt their ways of life, because they are the real ‘happy’ ones. Negative people.
My soul is hungry for the first kind of people…of the positive persuasion. Cheers to those individuals who really love life and enjoy bringing other people up instead of down!
I can’t wait to dive into my pile of beautiful, bright, highly textured yarns…
I’M FEEDING MY SOUL
