Gosh this week has just flown by…. It’s Sunday here already and it has been four days since I last posted, although it seems like only one or two! Life is soooooooo busy for me until Christmas, my schedule is jam-packed, and between today and the 25th I have ONE day off (typing that gives me a strange urge to hyperventilate…) and for many of the days I’m running from one place to another! I’m quite enjoying it though, because apart from two days of working in a shop, I’m doing things I am passionate about, so no resentment here! (Apart from the dreaded shop work….. that’s resentment central!) Life became a frenzy about two weeks ago, so I haven’t managed to sit down with my knitting much, and haven’t felt inclined to get too involved in any crochet projects, (or sleep) but my second raglan sweater is coming along nicely and I as I had a mandala emergency situation in my office the other day, I did manage to whip up this burst of colour….
Did you know that a mandala emergency could even exist? Well it can…. I bought a lovely new pot plant for my office because I am addicted to house plants, I love the energy they bring into the home and love the ones with the biggest, greenest leaves…. want to see my new pot plant?
It’s only quite small, I usually buy the little ones because they’re less expensive, then plant them in a nice big pot and let them grow big. So I potted it and put it on it’s new spot, on a little table next to the window and it was all wrong… the Feng Shui just was not working for me and I could barely tolerate it just sitting there on bare table with no colourful magnificence….. So before I used the office again I made this beautiful mandala to brighten up the space and send some loving evergy swirls up through my pot plant, into the room!
And as soon as I put it in place, the room was more complete!
Pot plant + Mandala + Crystals = Fantastic healing vibes
OK then lovelies! I’ve been sorely neglecting my blog friends lately and am looking forward to seeing what beautiful things you’ve been creating! Then I’m off to finish that Raglan Sweater… I’ve found some lovely new patterns for baby knits lately and am itching to start them using the other colours of that beautiful Perendale wool I knitted the first Raglan from! That’s if my nausea subsides…. yes… I’m suffering from morning sickness today…. KB and I celebrated five fantastic years yesterday and I ate so much last night at dinner, then a ridiculously decadent dessert afterwards that I’m suffering from a food hangover (I don’t drink alcohol remember, so that was not an influence!)… Have you ever had a food hangover? I’m going to have to drink some herbal tea and have a lie down before anything else I think!
I’m going to attempt to cook up a storm for the next week after all that (if I can face the smells!)….. Madras chick pea curry, vege lasagne, lentil pie…. it’s all happening here today….
Wishing you many wonderful things today, have a lovely rest of your weekend,
