to mend.

all of my resolutions begin the same way…

-finish projects.

-write more letters AND post them.

-complete x y & z before beginning anything new.

i’ve been more house bound in the past days. the windows being washed with wicked wind and rain.

the cold has moved in and i’ve plopped myself down on the couch with a blanket, the laptop, and the remote control to the t.v.

i picked up my camera only for a photoshoot (that i’m not too proud of. sigh)

and i’ve  just gone right back to hibernating and… lazing.

but i’ve been itching to create. to do something with my hands… to make something. to let my mind wander while i busy myself, rather than staring out the window.

so i pulled out my embroidery hoop and a bit of material and yarn… and only just realised how many pieces i have left unfinished-thread and needle still hopelessly attached.

my mind already wandering to the ideas of making a blanket, learning to crotchet, knitting a scarf, painting on a big canvas with some acrylic.

…and then i remember my ‘resolutions’ and how i never follow through, follow up.. complete a project. always left halfway, or just a few more minutes away from being complete. sentences left unformed, drawings left unpainted, letters left unsealed. legs left unshaved.

good intentions just… pushed to the side.

hmph.

how do you pick up where you left off?

what about resolutions? do you set them, and follow through?

what are some resolutions you’ve had that you accomplished, and what do you still have on the back burner?

without words

yesterday was supposed to be my ‘grateful daily‘ (er..why do i call it daily, when it’s only four photos-to represent the week? i clearly didn’t think anything through)

i have so much to be grateful for this week, but i simply haven’t picked up the camera… (i will make up for it. i plan on making up for it. waiting for some dry weather or… inspiration or… something.)

the winter weather is pushing itself in with such a force-which is both yummy, and.. oh i don’t know. it makes for a long, miserable winter… it is sure to be dark, cold, and never ending.

how uplifting. ha.

emotional roller coaster with this fertility treatment. some days, laying on the couch-with a blanket wrapped around me is all i want to do, and then the next day i’m right back up and happy and wonderful, ready to get dressed and go do something.

….

in other news, my best friend just arrived in the united kingdom yesterday-and we’re already planning for her trip to come visit me here. i am so excited to see her, to have a bit of home.

i’ll try to share more when i have more words. right now, all i seem to have is silence.

so much love.
