I always get like this right after Christmas. I believe the intense everything of the holiday season gets me on the hamster wheel and I have trouble getting off. When you are busy “doing” you aren’t “being”. I am working on the “being” part right now. The living in the moment and enjoying every moment. I have caught myself a couple times this past week looking ahead. For me, that is bad form. I am much happier and live more completely in the moment when I don’t look forward as much. Oh, and the weather hasn’t helped all that much either. It’s cold here. Grover and I go out in the cold and walk. He is happy at 10F. Me, not so much. I was lamenting that I don’t have a balaclava (not the Greek dessert;-P), but when I looked at them online I decided it was too late in the season to buy one. Sometimes, I wonder what planet I live on. Even here in Middle Earth, January is still early winter. We have at least February and the first weeks of March before we move away from winter. It seems I need to go buy a balaclava next weekend.
These are the first socks I ever knit for my Mom. I found the picture in my files that came from my oldest computer. I loved those socks and they looked darling on her feet, but they got holes in them and I don’t know where they ended up. Ah well. I have the picture to remember them by. They were soft as could be, too. I’m being nostalgic because I keep forgetting to take pics when the sun is out.
My soundtrack for today is Dave Mason and Mama Cass Elliott. They made an album together and I heard some songs this weekend and it triggered some great memories. Plus, those two sounded great together. Here they are with “Pleasing You”.
Have a great Monday!!!
