Weaving in the Sun




Still weaving tote bags, in the warmest, sunniest place I could find. I was unable to get the Monitor heater going, and the repairman is coming tomorrow at 8am. Spring cannot come soon enough. I am tired of dealing with "heat" issues.

Feeding the birds is one of my favorite things, so I end up with a lot of sunflower seed bags. Here is what I did with the ones that were pretty. They make great totes.

I am knitting a Maltese hat. I had trouble in the beginning, because I wanted to visualize what I was going to do before I did it, but no matter how many times I read it, I could not see it in my mind. So I just started it, and very quickly, it became a hat before my eyes. Then, of course, it seemed absurdly simple.
My life in retrospect seems sometimes the same way. I look back at times that were so hard, and I wonder why I struggled so. The answers that I couldn't see, back then, are so painfully obvious now. I guess that is what they call "Monday morning quarterbacking".....makes sense, even though I don't entirely understand football. All I know is that I like my life the way it is. Boring, uneventful, for the most part. I have discovered how sweet simple can be. Sometimes, my husband and I will sit here in the evening, not saying much at all, and one of us will say, "We're pretty boring, aren't we?" And then we smile, and say, "yes, isn't it wonderful?"
I am grateful every day.

That's a wonderful idea for making further use of the sunflower seed bags. I go through a number of them each winter too. You're more creative than Martha Stewart! ;)

I can't imagine how you make those bags, but they're beautiful.
And simple is NOT boring.
