Another week draws to a close and this one ushers in a long weekend! Yes, Steve has Monday off and he is going to the car show with a friend.
Add to that we are more than half way through the month! Yes – in two weeks from today we welcome March! For as long as January felt, February is just flying by despite the weather!!
Thinking About – Dreams. I rarely dream, which may be a byproduct of insomnia – but recently I have been having the same set of dreams (some might call them nightmares) on a repeat track. The dreams are disturbing, and I am not sure why I am having them. However, it makes me curious that I can tell myself in the dream that it is a dream so thankfully there have been no repeats of me waking Steve with blood curdling screams. However, knowing it is just a dream has not stopped them from occurring. I am not sure if there is a message in the dream (or in any dreams for that matter), but I am more than ready to put this “dream list” on permanent pause.
Giddy About – A Monday Alone (see above!!) Yes, no meal planning, and really – no cooking!! Silly thing, but one I am really looking forward to, a day alone is the nicest of treats!
Inspired By – Empathy. This design is a “mashup of the four 2018 Pins & Lace patterns” and I have been unable to stop thinking about it since it was released earlier this month. It has been too long since I knit a Romi design and I cannot get this one out of my head. I think I am going to cast this on once I have my Shawl of Many Colors finished.
Focused On – Getting some sewing done today. I am ignoring my indecision and just doing it. Indecision is.the.worst!
That is all I have for this week! Have a wonderful (and hopefully) long weekend! See you all back here next week!
Hope your bad dreams end soon. . . it’s miserable to have (what I call) “theme dreams” — or the same kind of dream night after night. Ugh. As for the sewing? Just go for it, Kat. It moves along so much faster than knitting! 🙂
Have you tried writing down what is happening in the dreams and trying to figure it out? Often if I have a dream repeatedly, it’s an indication to me that I am trying to work something out subconsciously.
Hope you enjoy your bonus day to yourself!
I completely get the Monday alone feeling! It’s not that Steve and John aren’t great, but it’s also wonderful to have a break to be by yourself and do what you want, when you want, with no meal preparation. Enjoy!!
Happy weekend (plus Monday)! I do love the beautiful roses in your photo.
Enjoy your Monday with no cooking! That should be a good day for some sewing or some other project you choose. The roses are so pretty. They look like a Valentine bouquet. Oh and that Romi Hill design – gorgeous.
whoa – Empathy is stunning (and yay for the chance to try NFco!) … and how was the sewing? I am looking forward to getting back to it later this month – I have a lot of fabric and first need to figure out a plan 🙂
I’m sorry to hear about those dreams and I hope they stop right away. Maybe now that you’ve told us about them that will end them. Have fun with the sewing and your Alone Monday.
Happy for your MONDAY Freedom!
Oooh! I hope you’re enjoying the day! Those days have always been my favorites.
Hope you had a good weekend, and that your Monday is great! Our GK were at a car show, but in Chicago. This must be the time of year for them?
i seldom dream…but I sleep very hard. Hope your dream disappears or you figure its message out – anything reminding you of something you’ve been reading?
The roses are lovely!
I am having an alone day today AND I LOVE IT! Cooking only what I want, bingeing a little on Sherlock on Netflix (and knitting, of course)(actually, frogging), and doing the laundry during the commercials. Yay!
Dreams can be so weird-my only recurring one is that all my teeth break off or fall out. I also read somewhere that weird dreams meant that you were in a very deep sleep or maybe that was one’s you can’t remember. Either way I wish you peaceful sleep-so important for self care.
