{ Day 10 of Quarantine/Day 5 of Shelter in Place - Full Day of Crochet }

The LORD is my light and my salvation - so why should I be afraid? The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?
- Psalm 27:1 -

Day 10 and I've lost track of what day of the week it is.  I had no clue it was Wednesday until my husband told me this morning.  *sigh*

How are you all doing friends?  I so wish I could give everyone a huge hug right now, pray with you, talk, and support each other through these next few weeks.

Times are changing, I think we need to realize that we are heading into a completely new era and a new way of life, and though deep down I feel that once we get through this, it will be better than ever before, I do also feel that things may get quite tough before they get better.

And so we're in this limbo, and I'm trying extremely hard to stay busy, find things to do and push through it.  Today I gathered my crochet hooks and yarn, popped on the TV and sat with my Marley for a few hours.

It felt so good to feel that yarn between my fingers, to hold that cold crochet hook and to watch my project take shape before my eyes.  I had forgotten just how much I enjoyed crocheting.  I've always found it to be so calming and relaxing, and if there ever was a time for me to get back into it, it is now.

This wasn't a huge project, I had a few granny squares already made and just laying in one of my crochet baskets.  Sitting there, waiting, beckoning me every chance I walked by, to pick them up and do something with them.

I didn't have enough to make a blanket, though I have to say that looking at the colors I picked, I think a blanket in this color scheme would be gorgeous.  Maybe I need to order some yarn in these colors again and work on a blanket, during this time?

Hmmm!!!

I don't have anything else to share with you today, I think when you blog daily, there will be days that are quieter than others, and today was one of those.  I just want to be able to document these times, on a daily basis.  I think when we look back on this months, years down the line, it will be interesting to see what we did, how we got through and how we felt through this historic pandemic.

As always, I hope you are all staying safe.  For my blog friends in New York, especially, I am sending you so much love and prayers.  I am praying for the day we are told that this curve has been flattened, that our economy is back on track, that everyone is back to work, that we can get back to eating out, shopping in peace, not wondering if we can find toilet paper and other essentials.

We will get there, I have no doubt about that.  Until then, let's all do our part, stay home, stay safe and keep praying.

  1. I love what you did with the granny squares, and the color scheme is indeed gorgeous! Reminds me that I have an afghan I could be working on. However, first I have to finish a crocheted throw I've been working on for years. I'd like to get it done for my daughter's birthday which is coming up soon. I have found this project, I won't say "boring" because I don't like that word, and the combination of stitches in the throw is interesting, but let's say I found it a bit monotonous. I'll be glad when it's done!

  3. As a born again Christian, I believe we are seeing the signs of the end times. I cannot imagine not have the peace of Christ in these times. Still, Jesus said not to worry about tomorrow so come what may we must continue on and trust that his promise to never leave or forsake us is true.
    Stay safe.
