YES IT IS!
FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH!
Had I realized it earlier I would have put off trying several unsuccessful projects today. Especially those online tasks that just went bonkers and locked me out. I really need to pay more attention to the days and dates. Since being off work for 7 months I regularly don't know the day or date :( I need to get more involved with living and not just existing .
Two weeks ago we found out that my husbands job would be gone March 6th....outsourced to another company. ( It's been hanging over our heads for about 18 months now. ) We found out 2 days ago that the new company has hired him....pending background check and drug test... Which should not be problem at all.
He is actually getting a promotion and a raise out of it so it's good. Just a little scary after 16 years with one company and at our age. Hopefully we can both relax now and enjoy life a bit more.
So there hasn't been very much art in the past couple of weeks... when stressed I either go into a frenzy of art or just lock up.... this was a lock up event .
What I did get done is the background for my DreamWheel that I will be creating on the Spring Solstice.
It's on a large poster that will go up on the wall in my art room. Replacing the one I did for the year 2013..... my years run from Spring to Spring :)
I drew a circle on a grocery store add and painted it ...to this I will add photos and words that relate to my goals and ambitions for the following year.
This week I also decided to challenge myself by knitting a hat instead of crocheting one. I haven't knitted in years and was never very good at it.
It took me four evenings and believe me there are a lot of mistakes. Thank goodness the yarn hides them well.
This one took me one evening to crochet and felt. So most of the hats will be crocheted for sure... but I'm challenging myself to knit at least one a month .... maybe 2 if I'm feeling energetic.
Random thoughts for today ...
