Crazy as a Loom

Into the weekend.

I had another cat at the studio yesterday.    This one didn't shed.

It was a good day at the studio.
Time for reflection. 
Settling in.
Being grateful for all of it.
Knowing that acceptance is still the answer to all my problems today, as it has always been.



 Then we took Roy for a walk.  The weather has been just beautiful the last couple of days



 Roy will drink from the river, but notice that he won't get his feet wet.
That is out of the question.
 The sunlight was lovely.  I needed it.  I am still somewhat in shock after last Sunday.


 I have continued to feel better all week.
It has been such a gift, that I have refused to let anything get me down.  Hopefulness sustains me, after two years of tough going.


I just put a bunch more dish towels on my web site, and found a new pattern that I LOVE.
What do you think?  Is it a keeper???




 I will weave it in several colors, and eventually I will anticipate every shed.
In a totally zen kind of way.

 For the first time in a long time, I am looking ahead.
Staying in today, but with a lovely anticipation for the future.

 It doesn't have to be complicated. 
It really doesn't.

So glad to hear that you continue to feel better, H. That's one of the cutest kitties I've ever seen. :)

This post makes me feel happy. I really feel like something has turned a corner for you; something very positive. What a Christmas gift that would be for you, Hilary. Sending a big hug to you and that sweet kitty. Deb

I love your new kitty! She is adorable. (You have some beautiful grands!)
I am so happy to hear that things are improving, even if the going is slow. What is it? Slow and steady wins the race?
Continued good feelings to you...enjoy those grands of yours, they grow too darned fast!

Hooray! So glad to hear that things continue to improve. I have to laugh at Ray, horses to will do some amazing contortions to avoid puddles, but then you see them rolling in mud...go figure!
Love the new draft! Which loom is it on if I may ask?

Very nice! Glad to hear both you and your loom are humming along.

I feel such hope coming from your words! Hope for you means encouragement for me :) Took my time perusing Brant's site. Was it hard to schedule a healing with him? I couldn't quite figure out how the process works? Would love to hear more :)

YAY!!! Whatever works, I say. That, and there are more things in the heavens and earth than are dreamed of by most men (and women) - ok Shakespeare said that. ;-) The old ways are often powerful.

And yes, I love the new pattern. Wanna share the draft?

glad to hear and see it was such a good weekend ... letting go of worry/stress can be a freedom we forget to embrace

So good to read your pain has lessened.
That pattern is a keeper.

I popped in to catch up on the last 10 days, and I'm so happy for you! As I was reading along I suddenly realized I was literally holding my breath waiting for the other shoe to drop, expecting the smasher would return. I know I don't "know" you, but I have happy tears in my eyes. Just breathe and Live.

Welcome to my world.
