It really is the little things in life that call to attention the awesome beauty and amazing potential we have. Little things like a kitty kiss, or making the green light, or catching the elevator.
Little things like seeing a leaf on the ground and crunching it.
Little things like feeling the wind in your hair.
Or seeing clouds in the sky.
Or eating a healthy supper.
Or buying yourself flowers because you've done well.
Or hearing someone say "you're doing such a good job of taking care of yourself" when that's really become the theme of things around here...validation is pretty amazing.
I like knitting, weaving, and crocheting with little things too...mini skeins, samples or whatever you want to call them. We sell them at work, but I was buying the Tosh Tea Cakes well before I started working here.
I have finally collected enough to start on my scrap afghan(s). I'm making a hexagon crochet afghan to start and am currently about 1/2 finished with the tiny centers. So cute...and so fun...and so little.
See, it's the little things.
People at work have asked me how I "manage" the mini skeins. I wind them into cakes. I just tie the ends together and keep going. I try to make them random but they don't really have to be because I choose random balls and only work from the outside yarn. When I get to the join, I cut, and grab another ball and keep going.
I also like to bring in all my extras from the sock yarns I have so I make a little ball of them and use them up during all of this too. It's really quite fun...
Little things. Stop and look around and appreciate them because they are awesome.
