And then I started to think about what May might mean to me. What I wanted from my May.
And then I remembered that May rhymes with day and I decided then and there to do something every day in May. One thing every single day this month. One thing for the next 31 days. A commitment but totally doable.
Over the next few hours I mulled over lots of ideas;
Go for a walk everyday?
Tell a mother what a great job she is doing?
Write a hand written letter?
Donate 10 things to the op shop?
Write in a journal?
Try a new recipe?
Spend an hour alone with one of my children?
Do one bottom of the list household chore
Do my pilates exercises????
I could realistically do most of the above.
I probably should do most of the above.
But then, driving home from bush kinder, I remembered that May is my learning to crochet anniversary. Three years this month. And I remembered that two years ago I crocheted a motif a day in May. To celebrate and to learn some new patterns. I remember that most of the time I was able to crochet a motif a day, but a few days I made two to make up for the day before. I remember really enjoying the searching for patterns, the choosing of the yarn and colour combos, the hooking them up and the little pile of motifs that grew. From memory some ended up stuck to the wall, some sewn on clothes, some I still have in a drawer and some I gave away.
So I'm going to do it again.
A motif a day in May.
I crocheted the first two just now to celebrate. Hopefully I'll get a bit more technical than the humble granny from here on. But if I end up with 31 grannies, that's a lap blanket and I'm happy too.
Yay! I'm excited.
Do you want to play too?
You could crochet a motif a day too, or you could do something else every day in May.
So are you in?
What are you going to to everyday in May?
I'll be back soon to motif show and tell.
Happy May marvelous peeps. xx
