(Although I fully support Think Write Thursday, there are some weeks when the topic doesn't quite work for me. Sometimes it's a challenging topic that I just don't have the time to thoughtfully consider, sometimes I lose steam, and sometimes I am just not in a creative mood. For those weeks, I rely on my old stand-by: Three Things on a Thursday. Please do check out today's Think Write Thursday posts here.)
Ugh. That photo is my garden in March. So bare. So brown. So quiet. (But no snow this year, so that's a bonus!) Yesterday, the winds just howled here all day long, whipping up the long grasses Tom cut down and neatly stacked a few weeks ago (waiting for our yard waste company to begin its pick-up service again next month). Yesterday, in the wind, the grass clippings were just flying around the yard, and lots of them ended up on the patio. What a mess. (And they also kicked up my allergies - because I am allergic to grass.)
I am now deep into Week Two With No Knitting. Nothing on my needles. No inspiration. Not really missing it. My knitting-mojo has definitely left the building! I am working away on an Alabama Chanin stitching project, though. And painting. So it's not like my hands are still. But . . . I don't think I've taken this long a break from knitting in . . . years!
The Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction long list was announced yesterday. (You can find it here.) I always look forward to this book list. It serves as my reading inspiration for the rest of the year, as I challenge myself to read all the long list books. (I've never completely succeeded, but I usually come close.) This year, I've already read one of the books on the list (Do Not Say We Have Nothing by Madeleine Thien) . . . so 15 to go!
Enjoy your Thursday!
