I have been enjoying a week of slow living. Before I went to work each morning, I would prepare or sew my granny square block in 10 min increments. I would journal and listen to my daily ritual with Silk and Sonder. I would then look over my flower bed scanning for new blooms and hoping the peonies were going to open. Unfortunately, not this week. I try to guess what plants I have in the garden because until some flower I really don’t remember what they are. It’s a lovely surprise every year. I check the fairy garden to be sure the bunnies and rabbits haven’t tipped over any of my houses. I make a mental note if I need to right anything before I leave for work.
I have been watching Gardeners World on Brit box during my lunch hour. I have not been sewing or crafting because I have needed that time to rest before returning to work. After work, I have knitted a row while watching a new channel I am fascinated with called Country Life Vlog. It is a lovely slow living channel depicting a traditional life and focuses on cooking of a family. Its a beautifully filmed channel and a great escape from the modern day hustle and bustle.
To improve my channel, my husband bought me a gimbal which allows me to walk and move while I film yet the device keeps my video smooth. I have bad balance as well as shaky hands some days. I love it so watch for those improvements in my YouTube, Reels and TikTok videos.
I hope to be able to record a podcast but the post Covid shortness of breath can be a problem still. I may have to do it in several recording sessions which I don’t like because I forget what I said in the previous segment. Honestly, I may need to take more time off from recording it if it becomes a great but pain in the butt to do.
So this weekend, I have no plans. I am working on Spontaneity with my June journal’s theme. I will let the three day weekend unfold as it may and go with where it takes me. As I travel throught the days maybe I will find time to sew, longarm or post on social media. We will see where the energy takes me!
have a lovely weekend,
