I meant to do my work to-day—
But a brown bird sang in the apple-tree,
And a butterfly flitted across the field,
And all the leaves were calling me.
And the wind went sighing over the land,
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand—
So what could I do but laugh and go?

It’s been a minute.
Why haven’t I been blogging you ask? I answer with a shrug, then point out the window where at this moment several doves are peacefully dining at the feeder. I am that lazy.
I have been simply bobbing along these past months, enjoying the swells and waves of every day life. I’ve been soaking in the sensations, sights, smells, for what they are, without making the effort to direct or interpret the meaning of all the feels. I have put no pressure on no one for no thing, including myself. It’s been wonderful.
But I just now made an impulsive decision. I’m going to join up with the One Monthly Goal challenge over at Elm Street quilts.
I did this a couple of years ago, and it was fun. I’m all about doing things that are fun right now. I met my challenges all twelve months that year. It felt very good. So I declare here and now, on this fifth day of January in the new year of 2023, that I will quilt up my oldest UFO. It will be donated to the Birthchoice Center.
I’ll be back.
