Many weeks back during the job-drama, I became maudlin about not doing enough for myself, for my personal enrichment... I spontaneously enrolled in a pottery course - Pottery for the Soul - and this begins next Tuesday and runs for 10 weeks.
I am planning all the bits I wish to create - it has been so long since I worked with clay. Decades, actually.
My soul will swell with happiness - as I embark on something new.
Baby Sprout is doing well, although I still get nervous writing anything. I have started knitting again, and want to finish the grey sweater so I can move on to new projects. We call the baby Sprout because one week - the 11th week - the baby was the size of a Brussel Sprout, and it stuck. This week she is in week 12, and the baby is the size of an Apricot.
The grey sweater is another Surprise Baby Jacket that is so strange to knit, but quite sweet once put together. I will find some veggie or fruit buttons to make it pop.
Last weekend in Windsor, a lovely summer evening.
Mosquitoes were not invited, but crashed the party.
But we had pavilion curtains which helped to keep them at bay.
