The week has passed quickly. Busyness of teaching, more teaching, plays to attend have made the week to seem to fly by so fast. Here's a short and unadorned by photos review for Friday Fave Fives.
1. This quote I found on a facebook page which I follow. "Our brains are built to feed our curiosity, our urge to discover, uncover and invent--essentially to be creative. And if we stay creative, and continually learn, we will be helping our brains give us a life worth living as we age." from Dr. John Zeisel, from Hopeful Aging, PBS Spring 2013 special.
2. The fifteen minutes principle. One afternoon this week, remembering a comment by Flylady, I decided that although my garden won't be weeded and cleaned IN fifteen minutes, I could work out there FOR fifteen minutes. So I did. It was wonderful to spend the time outdoors, and as usual, I was surprised again by how much I can accomplish in fifteen minutes: the potted plants watered and two full buckets of fallen camellia flowers gathered although the area around the camellia bushes doesn't look like I've been there at all. That's how camellias are. Fortunately, I hope to have another fifteen minutes this weekend to work out there again.
3. There will always be knitting. More hats, of course. And more boot cuffs. However, such has been the week that there are no photos. It's sad but true. But I promise to post pictures as soon as I take them.
4. Lately, I've been contemplating what life will be like after March 22nd. No, it's not my birthday. No, it's not the end of life (as far as I know). March 22nd is the date for the boutique where I'm selling my hats. What will my knitting life be after hats? That's the question I've been pondering. I think it will be a shawl, some pillow covers for living room pillows, a sweater or two, maybe a pair of pink socks. No hats. I'm a bit bored with hats for now. Anticipation is half the fun.
5. Speaking of anticipation, we are expecting those little ones to arrive on Saturday. They've been asking EVERY DAY if TODAY is THE DAY. Finally, the mommy made a 'Going to Meema and Bapa's House Calender' and put it on the front of the frig. They've been crossing off the days and today is the LAST day they have to cross out! We here at the cottage are very nearly as excited as our two sweet ones from San Diego. Although we restrained ourselves and didn't make a calender, many of our conversations have started with the words "When they are here, shall we, let's, maybe we could..."
Have a wonderful weekend!
