Friday is here and the end of a terrible week. I am embracing all the Hygge that I can get! Candles, check. Heavy, snuggly quilts, check. Comfy pants, check. HOT beverages, check.
I know I am really dating myself by using the phrase TGIF! I even watched a terrible disco movie with the same name and had the theme song. I chuckle now at how stupid that movie was. I have found myself longing for the late 70s and early 80s lately. It was a time of my innocence in life. The world seemed like a simpler place. I don’t think it really was. I don’t think that todays problems are totally special to our time only, there were huge problems back then, too. Things just unfold before our eyes in real time now versus the 6 pm news only. There are no new problems under the sun as they say. What has changed over the years is me. Back then, I was a kid just living life watching cartoons, riding bikes and playing Pong on my Atari. I really had no clue about all of the big problems in the world.
And to be honest, I have learned as an adult I need to set them aside and embrace the hygge. Embrace working on my creative projects, and embrace the precious free time I have before the next week unfolds. Take time to cook a meal , snuggle in my chair and just relax. All this 70s talk and I am craving cheese fondue right now.
I am planning on starting a new scrap quilt next weekend. The Facebook group and I are going to start to pull fabrics for it this weekend. When life gets weird, make a quilt. Feel free to join in, link for the free pattern is below:
