Hello my friends. Come take a walk with me…
Imagine us walking through a garden. The fragrance besides the abundance of bright flowers announce that it’s now spring. As we stroll along the paved path, we reach a special area of the grounds to the right. We gasp in surprise at the delightful vision of butterflies fluttering about. Further inside, we can’t help but be curious. We closely examine the foliage. To our wonder, there is evidence of a butterfly’s world. Little eggs are attached to leaves. Caterpillars like slowly moving accordions inch around munching. We also spot some green pupae hanging precariously from underneath branches. A few, abandoned pupas sway gently in the breeze. We happily leave this part of the garden, enriched by a part of mother nature, and walk down the path once more, ready to see something new and ready to learn.
I can be a perfectionist, sometimes wanting things to be just right. Of course life doesn’t work that way. I’ve learned as a mother that sometimes I have to take things in stride as they are what they are. In my experience, everything will work itself out. While I wanted to have everything ready, my schedule of late has had me running around. PTA is picking up again and has me strengthening my Excel skills. And guess what? The husband and I are official, first time homeowners!
With the coming end of this 2014-2015 school year, our crew will be moving out of the city. Yep, for the first time in my life, this city born and bred gal will be living elsewhere and going suburban. With the change of address on the horizon, I also started to feel different about Knitspiring Odyssey. This is the first, public blog I’ve ever had. It’s been my training wheels of sorts I guess you could say. I was a young mum learning how to be one to two children, and I was still learning about knitting techniques besides venturing into crochet for the first time.
So now our girls are older. I’ve got a decade of parenthood under my belt. I can hook the basics of crochet. I can knit with two hands for a colorwork project and knit up a beanie with a jogless jog. I say I’m at least an intermediate knitter right now. With these accomplishments in my life, I feel it’s time for a small change. This change is retiring the Knitspiring Odyssey domain. I’ve outgrown it.
So when April 8th rolls around, this blog will no longer be present. I’m not giving up blogging although it will be a while until I post again. I like to present you with a soft announcement of Wooly Cakes and Wooden Spoons. I’m slowly working on perfecting the blog header. I have initial photos but they’re not up to snuff quite yet. So please bear with me while I’m tinkering about and getting things ready. I do hope you’ll switch over to Wooly Cakes and Wooden Spoons in the future.
Until our next chat, I bid you adieu. You are always in my thoughts and held with deepest appreciation close to my heart.
