So, yes, before I go too negative, March. Beautiful, sweet March. I'm still crazed with the knitting bug, but not allowing myself daily time for it. I do go to yarn club across the bay on Wednesday nights and I love that. I need to make sure to work that in somewhere. Like wake up early (always so difficult for me, as when I wake up it's still dark), sit quietly with coffee, knit a few rows. Same going for after school, maybe I just need to sometimes sit in a chair and knit a few rows and reflect upon the day. Those aren't bad ideas, right?

March will be full of DOING, but it will be about DOING with John. With food. With yarn. With reading books. With getting out and appreciating nature more. With sleeping long hours each night to feel rested and ready to wake up in the early mornings to give a little back to myself. With continuing to change my body for the better through gym workouts, yoga, pilates. I never thought I was a "gym" person. I was wrong. It's a wonderful "healthy addiction" but you must listen and not feel guilty when your body tells you to pull back. I would like to reconnect a little more deeply by writing some close friends. I'd like to pull the wedding together just a little more, but I'll let April start things swinging with all of its spring energy (and six months before our date!).
For now, I'm going to hang out in the arms of March. It's a good month for doing so, don't you think?
Also, any wake-up-early-in-the-dark and enjoy some "me" time strategies are highly appreciated.
love and light,
