Wow, wow, wow it’s July! How did that happen?
Sometimes All the time I wish the summer months would go by at half speed, however they seem to pick up speed with each passing year.
June, here in northern Illinois, has been lovely. For once, no weather complaints from me. I’ve been going for walks almost daily and my body and soul like it a lot. That hour or so spent outside moving from one place to another is a meditation of sorts. It stops me from “doing” and opens my mind to creative thinking and praying. If my mind goes to a place of worry I immediately call it back to a positive and peaceful place.
Our feral kitties have been enjoying the beautiful weather and stick around all day long. The tabby, whom has been around since we moved into our house 9 years ago, has recently been joined by Morris, Orange-y, or Lion Kitty; he goes by all three names. He is very sweet, and unlike Miss Kitty, will not bat our hands (with claws outstretched). She can be quite impatient when we are giving her a snack. Naughty girl!
This past week most of my creative time has been spent knitting. Right now, I have three sweaters off the needles, and only one dress sewn. Last night, before heading off to bed, I stopped in my sewing room and planned three more sweaters! I am in the knitting zone, I guess. Hopefully, when I have finished knitting all these sweaters I can move into the sewing zone and make the dresses to be worn with all these little cardigans.
I hope you all are enjoying the start of July. Maybe yours will go a little bit slower than mine mostly likely will. If you have any secrets to slow it down, please let me know.
Bye for now, my friends. Thanks for stopping by today.
