Crocheting the day away....
For the past two days I've immersed myself back into crocheting, into beautiful colors and soft yarn.
Into the rhythmic motion of hook and yarn while I watch a favorite show or read a good novel.
It's relaxing and it's therapeutic for me, it takes away the craziness around me, the worries or the stress of life. I hadn't realized how much I had missed it until I made another granny square and sat back to admire the work.
My little blanket is coming along nicely, obviously nowhere near ready and I'm sure I'll be making granny squares for quite a while longer, but I'm enjoying it and I am already thinking about my next project.
Yesterday after getting the housework all done, I was able to sit on my couch, with my dear pugs laying next to me, and Little Dorrit on the TV. I watched the first 3 DVD's and absolutely loved it, have you ever watched the BBC Series?
It's a very interesting story, so much so that Curt ended up watching some of it with me and enjoying it too. I can't wait for the last DVD to arrive tomorrow.
This afternoon, I crocheted while reading my new book "Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict" which I got from Paperbackswap, along with some other great titles like:
Me and Mr Darcy by Alexandra Potter
Pemberley or Pride and Prejudice Continued by Emma Tennant
Darcy's Story by Janet Aylmer
OH and I also watched "Beyond Sherwood Forest" a movie about Robin Hood, another one of my favorite subjects.
The day ended with me in the kitchen whipping up some dinner which consisted of Spaghetti a la Philly, go on over to the Food blog for the recipe.
