Sunday morning and lots to do~ and lots to procrastinate over! “Come on, Pascal, let’s go for a walk!”
We go for a walk almost every morning. Besides being good exercise, I find it a nice way to get my mind going for the day and get things sorted out, , especially if I’m feeling overwhelmed- which is how I felt this morning. I grabbed my camera and the dog and walked out the door. I’d rather have my camera with me even if I don’t use it, than find myself wishing I had brought it.
It was pretty foggy out, so I didn’t really expect to have much of an opportunity to use it, but as we started up the country road I couldn’t help but notice the interesting and beautiful effect the fog was having, masking everything in an ethereal cloud of dampness and quiet. Wondering if I could capture some of this strange beauty with my camera, I began clicking away, noticing how the branches of the trees that were in close range appeared strong and dark, like out-raised arms holding the fog at bay; in contrast, trees in the distance appeared soft & frail, their outlines blurred in the fog.
I was surprised to see how much of a start the spring grasses have had already. We’ve had a lot of rain so far this winter, but I hadn’t expected to see the grasses getting long so soon. Damp with the morning fog, they looked almost florescent-green against the foggy-gray backdrop of sky. The countryside had acquired an entirely different “attitude,” much as a person’s mood can be affected by weather changes. This “attitude” I was seeing was one of great beauty and I was indeed happy that I ‘d brought my camera!
Leaving the fog outside with the trees, I had a better sense of which project to work on today. I have been so excited about knitting little lambs. I just finished my fourth one and listed it on my website and in my Etsy shop and I’ve started knitting a new lamb~
After my walk, knowing I was going to work on my lamb today, I was excited; couldn’t wait to start; but first I had to get the last of the things I’d been procrastinating over, finished ; writing my blog post!!
And I’m off to knit! Have a great week!
