Fun fact – I wasn’t quite sure what “burying the lede” meant unto about five minutes ago when I finally looked it up and decided it was indeed what I intended to do with the photos I had 🙂 Also, I love that I can tag one of my mostly-regular TGIF posts with a title that doesn’t reference time. (and yup, burying that lede even more!)
Happy Friday y’all! and welcome to TGIF in this little corner of the internet.
Thinking about … how to balance stillness and connection as things start to re-open. When I wrote this year’s intentions, I was imagining a world that looked like most of 2020 … and it now seems like 2021 could be much different. I am wanting to be slow about saying “yes” (and “no”). I got used to the space that this last year allowed me and I’m not ready to give it up. Stillness and connection aren’t always standing off – sometimes they are at opposite ends – and yet when they intersect (centering prayer circle, FaceTimes with friends) I know I am where I need to be.
Grateful for … Marc and I have our first vaccine appointments next Friday. Georgia is opening up availability to age 55+ on Monday. I am especially grateful to my sister for letting me know Wednesday night that Publix was opening appointments at 7am on Thursday. I was there at 6:58 and had both appointments booked by 7:40 (the waiting is the hardest part).
Inspired by … the weather – yep, again! – to quickly finish this sweater so I might be able to wear it once! I just started the last color block on the body … and still two sleeves to go. I think this sweater could be the perfect top for 60-ish degrees … TBD if I can finish the body (30 rounds plus ribbing) and TWO sleeves by next weekend. actually, as I type that I realize yeah, not likely. still. we knitters are hopeful folks.
Fun! … I snapped the photo above at the end of our match yesterday. y’all we WON 6-3, 6-3. we were the only line to WIN without a tie-break. It was SOMUCHFUN! I stayed after our match to watch the two remaining matches and it was … almost like before times. except that I didn’t DO tennis in before times. We were outside, seated away from each other, sharing thoughts about the matches, and our coaches, and the other team, and it was fun! I didn’t even have to try hard to NOT complain (which was also fun).
and on that note – I sure hope you’ve found some TGI & F in your life this past week. I would love for you to share about any one of those things!
Also, wishing you the best weekend available to you! and love. – M.
