The Rundown

Some days the ideas flow nonstop, one thing leading to the next in a mythical progression of inspiration.  On those days, I have a multitude of knitting project and writing ideas, feel inspired to take photos or sew and bake.

Today is not one of those days.

We had a great Easter weekend.  On Saturday there was sunshine and much playing and knitting outside, baking of strawberry rhubarb crumble, and I didn’t take a single photo.  I even resurrected a long-languishing lace project and enjoyed knitting several rows before returning to the ease of stockinette on my Rayonnant, which I’m still trying to salvage.  Then on Sunday we had an early morning departure planned, and I completely forgot to put together PB’s basket.  I got her some of these play silks and painted a story box, but again there was no photo. Soon, I hope.

On Monday the rain came, and with it a sense of domestic responsibility.  There was a lot of laundry and unopened mail to catch up on, and I spent my usual morning blogging time working around the house.  It was a dreary day all around, followed by a bit of a rocky night.  I’ve had a lot of coffee this morning, and my outlook is definitely improving!

I don’t know why I’m sharing all of this, except to show that blogging isn’t always as intuitive or timely as we might like.  Where I would have prefered to show you the colorful and crafty images of select parts of the past few days, I’m challenged to describe them and share the moments that happened in between all the blog-worthy activities.

I do have this photo that Sweetie took of PB holding a hand-carved bunny her grandmother made. Isn’t it great?

I hope you have an inspired day.

  1. you’re right, it isn’t always as straight forward as that. If I have days where I feel tortured about blogging, about content, about what to say, I don’t do it.

    The photo of PB is so lovely. Gosh she’s growing up. It makes me ache because I haven’t seen Alice for almost three weeks and it’s hurting. Only a few more days to go.

  2. You have my sympathy on the inspiration! Sometimes I just feel like I have nothing to say – makes me wanna just post a pic with my tongue stuck out in defiance.

    I think you did great –
    PB’s eyes are really something else – I love that dreamy far off look!

  3. Look at PB’s hair…it is getting so long and her eyes are simply amazing. How can you ever find time to write with her around? 😉
