During COVID I have managed to learn new skills, watch quite a few webinars to learn new skills and information, as well as crafting for my own pleasure. I am knitting a worsted weight sock in a white superwash yarn that I plan on dyeing when I’m through knitting it, like a treat at the end. I’m also using some of my yarn samples to knit a hap-type shawl.
Through the events of COVID I am being given an unprecedented opportunity to learn, be encouraged to apply for a new job, as well as spending some time with my sibling when they visit to take me to my surgery. I have found some boxes of memories that we can go through together so that when I get a full-time job I do not have to worry about moving these memories to a new space, my sibling can take those that are important to them and I can keep those that are important to me. Those that are not important can move on through the world to bring joy to someone else.
I planted a victory garden with vegetables that I enjoy, it is a joy to see these little green things grow and meet each new day. Tomatoes, peppers, pumpkin, spaghetti squash, butter lettuce, and more. It is certainly a joy to eat a salad made with lettuce leaves from my own garden. My pleasure in using the rain barrel I set out to water my garden is unprecedented. I love knowing that this water collected is being used on days that it is not raining.
These days are frustrating and confusing however looking at each day as an opportunity to advance more on projects, personal, crafting, professional, I am able to find a joy in everything. A friend of mine has reminded me that I enjoy Gaming, StarDew Valley has become a new hobby, and that I am as enamored with technology as ever.
I’m going to finish this post with a photo of the spinning I have been working on. My surgery to repair the ligament in my left wrist is scheduled for 2 weeks hence, I hope that I can maintain the freedom of movement I have recently discovered so that I can continue crafting.
