This week has been an interesting one, filled with strange highs and lows. The force which emotions bare themselves still takes me by surprise. I am trying to re-introduce more meditation and mantras into my lifestyle. I want to be a calm, centred woman, not just for me but for hubby and baby rabbit girl, who is going to be born in 4 months.
Three days ago I decided to take on a simple crochet project to help my brain and emotions focus on mindfullness and staying centered. Its working 🙂 I am working on a rainbow blanket of treble clusters (more commonly known as a granny stripe). The pattern is from Lucy of Attic 24 fame and can be viewed here. Here is my progress so far;
I love the simple colour scheme, it makes me so happy! The yarn is just cheap acrylic. My goal is to make one in cotton, but at the momet the money needs to be spent on other things, so acrylic it was! My hope is that it can be finished before baby rabbit girl arrives. I have to be careful working on such a large project as my RSI (repetitive strain injury) flairs up, so frequent breaks and exercises are a must.
Part of my breaks have included going for walks with husband and the Gladiator (my dog). There is something so soothing about walking in nature hearing the birds sing and breathing in the stillness. Yesterday our peace was interupted as I almost stepped on a brown snake O-o I don’t think i’ve ever moved so fast, thankfully the little guy was sluggish and did not appear aggressive, even better was that the Gladiator did not even see the snake! We quickly turned around and high tailed it back home, very thankful for the near miss.
After that close call I won’t be walking down the bush track anymore, even if it is winter. My first aid skills are very sketchy with snake bites and I don’t want to put myself, the rabbit girl or the gladiator at risk of a bite and loosing either one. Hubby and I would probably be fine as we could make it to the end of the track and call the paramedics to get anti-venom, but an unborn baby and and old dog. Not a chance.
