How do I embrace the long month of January?
I fill it with all the things I love!
I light a candle in a pretty cut crystal candle holder.
I reread some favourite books to savour them once again
and discover new delicious details I may have missed before!
I get out my yarns and crochet hook and start creating with colour and design.
There is nothing more rewarding!
I like to feel the softness of the yarn, choose the colours by the mood I'm in.
Feel the smooth metal of the hook work its way in and out of the stitches
in a calming rhythmic manner.
Creating circular designs which have a beautiful harmonious feel to them
Mandalas too are full of flowing harmony.
Snip the yarn, sew in the loose ends.
What shall I make?
It doesn't matter for now.
Just create and sigh a sigh of contentment.
The pleasure is in the doing as much as in the foreseeable end product.
January can be a tad grey and windy and cold and wet or snowy,
but all these things are a perfect excuse to do everything I love doing!
Even photography is possible indoors
and although it can be more of a challenge, because of poor lighting,
it's time to get out that wide open prime lens and play with distance and angle.
So dear January
Do your best with wind and snow
I am snug at home!
