Just Life

Sometimes Mondays.

… are for catching up. I certainly didn’t set out to skip a week here. Every day, I thought about it. and every day I gave myself permission not to. In the meantime, I finished a pair of socks and a baby sweater, started a new sweater, finished a fantastic book, kept watch over the amaryllis, treated myself to a manicure, and enjoyed a few delicious meals (with wine ♥). I also spent time reflecting on next steps, making lists, and just being. It was a wonderful break!

and it’s good to be back.

Here’s to a great week, my friends!

    How nice to have a break – and glad you are back. Love your flower photos, we do not have any as of yet and I did search for snow drops on yesterday’s walk, they tend to be the first to arrive.

  • Bonny

    I know the feeling; sometimes you just need a break from blogging. But it sounds like you used your time wisely and creatively. It looks like spring in GA with all the flowers!

  • Honoré

    All work and no play makes (insert name here) a dull girl! Glad you had a colorful and productive time away – tho’ we missed you…

  • Vera

    You were missed, but it sounds/looks like we all understand the need to step back at times. Looks like you’ve had a great week (loving those Florida/Flamingo socks!!). Nothing blooming here (outside) yet, so your photos are very welcome! 3:20 p.m. and I’m ready to head home to a glass of wine (not quite yet…but I’m ready!!).

  • Kat

    Just sometimes, that break inspires creativity and it looks like that is just what you found! I am eager to discuss your read with you! I have not wanted to depart from that very incredible place.

    I’m getting ready for my Lenten break but I think I will keep blogging – just signing off Instagram and facebooks. I have a lent devotional and an idea for a tactile practice and of course Sarah Bessey’s great list of 40 days. I am looking forward lent this year.

  • Sarah

    I’d say you’re entitled to a week off if you want or need one! I’m glad it was a good one — you certainly got a lot of stuff done!

  • Karen

    Always happy to see you back, but I’ve come to the conclusion that a blogging “schedule” just doesn’t work for my lifestyle right now. When there’s time, it happens, but many days are just too full. It’s good to take a break—and you were certainly productive! That’s a lot of beautiful knitting!
