2014 seems to have a positive feel about it, not just with me, but with blog land as a whole and friends that I have spoken to. Everyone has such amazing thoughts and feelings about this year that come across as a new start and one to feel glad about. It lifts the heart and mind to have such positive feelings surrounding us all and encourages these thoughts to continue. I always think that if you surround yourself with positive people then nothing but good can come from it. Even the weather as unpredictable as it is, is not getting me down!
My first positive for this year was picking up my much neglected crochet hook. Within two hours I had completed a project! Yes, I surprised myself, but after receiving a Kindle for Christmas with the sole purpose of reading blogs snuggled up on the sofa, it needed a snuggly jacket. So with the use of some squares I crocheted last summer and a bit of imagination, I put together this little project in two hours. Two of my favourite colours, pink and grey.
In my last post I said that this was the year of change for me. So far it hasn't disappointed. I have had the advantage of two weeks' away from the day to day work, so have put a few things in place. Grandad Tom's book now has 550 words written, not many when I type this figure out but it has started and that was the hardest part.
Patience has paid off in one area of the garden, the greenhouse! Yes, FINALLY, my tomatoes are ripening!! It's January for goodness sake and the vines themselves are rotting but the red gorgeousness shone through like rubies as I went to get the bird seed. Yes, they are edible and taste even more sweeter that I can pick these off the vine in January. A positive thing indeed.
So with the decorations down and safely packed away until the end of the year, I am now hopping back on the hamster wheel of life and keeping positive thoughts in my mind as I look at my living room with Pinterest boards dancing around in my head and the wind and rain lashing against my window panes (which is pretty much why there isn't a lot on this week's blog - rain on a camera lens is never a good thing).
May I wish you a very positive weekend and week ahead.
