Welcome February! Finally the worst of Winter seems over(at least here!) and we have Spring to look forward to. The air seems softer, more and more birds are starting to sing and the first daffodils are popping up in the grass. I cannot tell you how relieved I feel because the days are getting longer. Can't wait for Spring to arrive!
January always seems like a month of breathing in and breathing out again. You know what I mean? After the hectic Holiday times, the darkness and the cold, and all the new resolutions, giving everybody the best wishes for 2014(even the people you'd rather slap in the face. Which in fact I secretly imagine myself doing as I shake hands. Ha!) life gets back to normal. F or as far as that's possible anyway. So...how was January? Well...
* We ate cupcakes and caramels on coffee dates. Because there's almost nothing a good coffee can't fix. Let alone cupcakes!
* I had to pull out more than half of my knitting because I made a mistake. My fox sweater is coming along nicely though. I'm almost finished with the knitting before I can start working on the fox pattern that will be on the front. There's nothing better than knitting the cold nights away! I've now even reached the point where I can just sit and watch movies while knitting. It doesn't always work out well though, hence the mistake I made!
* We enjoyed Pebbels company even more after we had to let go of our 16-year old cat...so so sad....We gave him a nice cat funeral with flowers, last kisses and cuddles and lots of tears.
* We made shadows on walls with Lego Chima. I am amazed by how easliy he seems to build these Legend creatures at the age of five when the box states it's suitable for ages 7 up! I don't have to help at all. He just grabs the intsruction manual and starts building. He's doing so well at scholl with the highest possible scores on tests, that the teachers decided to challenge him more with extra mathematics and starting reading already. I guess I won't have to mention how proud I am of that!
* I had a first try at spinning a thicker yarn. It's not even yet, but it looks very soft and fluffy which was what I was aiming for. It's still waiting to get dyed some hot pink, yellow and turquoise!
* I scored some nice black boots.
* I found that drawing patterns can be very soothing for the mind. And it wasn't as difficult as I imagnied it would be. You should try!
