Phew! I'm glad it's over! And let's move on to 2019.
My word for 2019 will be Joy. And as luck would have it, the day after I put it in writing, I found this Joy cup in the dollar section at Target. And it's already bringing much joy. The cup itself is a nice gray color and I seem to be slightly obsessed with gray these days. It has an awesome travel lid that doesn't leak when I'm my silly self and bend over to pet the dog with a cup in my hand. (I can't count the number of times I have dumped my drink all over the poor dog and floor from doing that.) My hot drinks stay hot much longer than in a normal coffee cup. And of course, it's a constant reminder to find the joy in everyday moments, which is something I desperately need.
And speaking of joy.... Meet Larry. Larry the Lama. Is he not adorable? He arrived in the mail the other day and has kept me company at my desk ever since. He's so soft and a stroke or two of his soft fur calms me right down when I'm stressing over 2019 budgets, taxes and general to-do lists. He may become my blog mascot of sorts.
So, as I mentioned earlier, please bear with me. I'll get to the knitting soon enough. So much has happened since I stepped away from the blog back in mid-December. There was Christmas, New Year's, Winterfest, life, and of course, plenty of knitting. I'll tell you all about it but probably not in time-line order and not today. Today, I'm going to go be joyful and knit another round. Or ten.
