It is March!

Today is the last day of my Midwinter Break.  Tomorrow, I will be back at school, teaching, tutoring, planning and organizing.  I would love to say that I am looking forward to it, and for the most part I am.  However, there is a part of me who would rather stay at home and continue to create.

I spent a lot of this break creating things which actually means that I finished things that I had started a while ago.  The first thing I finished was a sweater that I had started in December.  I also finally sewed four pillows this week for the couch in my office.  I had purchased the material back in October, but I never seemed to be in the mood to actually do the sewing part of it.  I did that today.  It was nice to complete some things.

Now my creative juices are flowing towards the craft of writing.  I love the month long challenge of writing in my blog each and every day.  I haven’t made it a priority until now.  The Slice of Life Challenge sponsored by Two Writing Teachers is just the little shove I need to get back into something that I do enjoy doing.  I love typing out words.  I love the fact that I can reread what I have written and change my words around a little bit, add words, or delete words in order to make my thoughts come across clearly.  Yes, just like when I crochet or knit, I end up deleting or frogging entire sentences or even paragraphs as I write.

Creating things is such an important part of my life.  I look forward to creating memorable posts and revisiting my blog for the month of March.  One day down and thirty to go!

  3. I love the way you elevate the “craftiness” of writing. There is something so satisfying in creation, seeing the tangles of your mind come out in neat rows. Thanks for sharing!
