I am thankful that although it has been very cold, and it was very cold when I was at work - I took my happy scrappy squares blanket with me to sit under and work on and I was very grateful for it! - we haven't had any snow this week.
Photos first, then a bit of catch up chat!
Isn't a thick frost just so beautiful!! I love these photos. I love the others I took too, but these were my favourite five, especially the one of the rosemary - second one down.
It has been a busy week, I am still not back into my "routine", whatever that may be, but I feel as though I am getting there a bit more. Time seems to be whizzing past and the to do list is ever growing. We are getting there though and starting to feel rather more as though we know where we are heading with things. That is good, as I like to know what I am doing and obviously things have been rather topsy turvey lately.
My happy scrappy squares blanket has been receiving a lot of attention. I don't have the mental focus for anything else right now, but I do have the need to crochet so the blanket is coming along really well because of this. In fact it is coming along so well that I have a bit more border work to do and I hope that by the end of the weekend it will all be done. Yay! Something finished for the first time in a long time it seems.
The socks that I have been working on - not even sure that I have mentioned them here? - have been put aside for now as they need too much thinking about.
Hubby and I are, of course, feeling this big odd shaped hole - a father in law shape! - in our lives right now so we are trying to fill it up by doing things that we haven't had the time or energy to do for ages, so we have had a date night, we are working together on clearing out cupboards - yes I could do it alone and so could he, but we both have such strong opinions on our "stuff" so it is easier to do it together. Things are being cleared out - and donated - or replaced, moved etc. We are also considering some travel plans and some other longer term things too. Right now anything is possible!
I have been reviewing what to do with my Etsy shop and the things I made for it. Right now I don't think I will be making any new things, but I have lots of lovely things that I made for it before things happened with my father in law. So I have decided to list them as a "sale", you can see them in the post that I wrote yesterday if you are interested in them. Hope you don't mind me mentioning it.
That is where we are right now.
Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoy Five On Friday - you can find the other posts, and add your own link, here. Have a great weekend everyone!! Stay warm or cool depending on where you are.
