Mindful Mondays

{ Mindful Mondays } 

 I am starting a new post series on Mondays (as often as possible) that calls all things I am doing, thinking, and creating together in one space. A good starting place for the week and a way to ease into Monday. 

What I am.....

:: reading- Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty as a part of a online book club sponsored by Peanut Blossom and I am slowly combing through The Knitter's Book of Wool by Clara Parkes. 

:: listening to - the BBC World News Hour on NPR and when I am not tuning into NPR I am enjoying my new Joni Mitchell CD of her greatest hits. 

:: studying- seedling catalogs because I yearn for fresh veggies and fruits in the cold of winter. 

:: creating- some new bags and play-mats for my Etsy shoppe that will open in February. (stay tuned) 

:: cooking- tonight's dinner will be Grilled Tilapia over Red Rice with a Lemon Butter sauce (can't you tell I am so over winter) 

:: educating - my little peanut by starting back into homeschooling (very slowly) Week of "H" will start tomorrow.

:: feeling- rested after 2 weeks of uninterrupted family time 

:: thinking -about my cousin who will welcome her little one into the world this week and my brother who celebrates his 26th Birthday today. Happy Birthday!

  1. A lovely way to summarize so many swirling thoughts :)

    1. thank you! Mondays always leave me scatter-brained so I thought why not share what is swirling about!

  2. Hi Kathleen, and happy new year to you and yours. :) I've been away from blogging for just over two months (life happens...) and dove back in this morning, inspired by your Mindful Mondays post! Here's my link:

    Thanks for the inspiration...I've got my seed catalogs out, too. :)

    1. I too have been away from blogging for the last two months. I really wanted to get back into it because I have met so many wonderful people that I didn't want to give it up. Thanks for joining up. I am hoping that more people will feel inclined as the years gets going.
