So about Yesterday…😏

It sure was a bit of a frazzled one! 

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’• 

If you saw yesterday’s ‘Monday’ post – you know I was full of energy, ready to tackle the new week! πŸ‘ΈπŸ»

And it started well enough – I took a nice walk in beautiful weather (morning temps in the 60s 😎) with a friend and our dogs. 

Checked cleaning the bathroom off of my to-do list βœ… Apropos – did you know that Dawn in warm water, followed by a little Squeegee action leaves your mirrors and windows sparkling? Try it sometime…it’s great. πŸ™‚

As I stood there, admiring my handiwork, the universe was like ‘Oh, so you think you’re on top of things, eh? Not so fast!’ 😳

Plan was cleaning βœ…, crocheting, and blogging about the crocheting. 

Well, guess what? Didn’t happen. πŸ˜• I picked up the ‘crochet-along’ ….got nothing. Looked at various yarns thinking maybe I start something new….nope. Crickets! 

Alright then – I just take my Granny Squares, they need to be joined together. That’s when I lost my ability to think logically. It was 9th grade Mathclass all over again. Remember the ‘Pythagorean Triple’? It’s sooooo simple, but it took me weeks to finally get it. No idea why…’cause it really is simple. Anyway – I want to join the squares on-point. Easy enough, right?! Ha – you would think so (and you’d be right πŸ˜‹). I laid them out, joined three or four together…and had a regular corner. Ugh πŸ˜‘ I’m embarrassed to say, it took a few tries…and then – Hallelujah! – it worked! See…

I don’t wanna jinx it, but I think I got it now 😝 

Did that ever happen to you? That you know it’s doable, other people are doing it – but it just won’t come together? Please tell me it happens to other people too! πŸ˜”

By then it was late afternoon, dinner went well 😏

I checked my blog-view numbers…there’s a good chance I’m slightly obsessed with them 😁 

See…my goal here is to up my numbers every month. And I have been since I set that goal in January 😍 So I check it…666 😳 Now, I’m not superstitious – I heard that’s bad luck 😏 – and I love the fact that I upped my number from last month by 240 πŸ™†πŸ» and I truly appreciate each and every view….but one more would’ve been nice 😜 Goals!!! 

There were small positives though…🌈

– Did I mention my sparkling bathroom πŸ˜›

– I had a lovely sit-down and chat with my daughter πŸ’•

– I won almost $100 at the casino last night πŸ€‘ ⬅️ I’ve always wanted to use that one!

– I finally found a good…no, great book! πŸ€“ After the duds I picked up over the last few months, I thought I had read all the good ones 😊

Thanks so much for stopping by! I wish you a great week full of inspiration, success and love ❀️ 

The next part of the crochet-along will be here tomorrow πŸ˜ƒ

I hope you’ll be back for that 😍 And don’t forget to tell me about your ‘brainfog’ moments! Please! I neeeeeed to hear them. πŸ™‡πŸ»β€β™€οΈ 

Until then πŸ’•

    Brain fog, happens all the time. LOL No, you’re not alone. Sometimes I have to just put something aside until I’m feeling it. When I was joining the squares of my two sweaters, I can’t tell you how many times I had to pull out something I had already sewn until I finally got it right. We’re in it together. πŸ™‚

    Glad you got things sorted in the end. What is the book you’re reading? I’m always on the lookout for a great read. I just read a fun book called ‘the unexpected inheritance of inspector chopra’ it’s a light hearted crime book (I wouldn’t normally read crime but this is quite harmless) set in Mumbai, with a baby elephant as one of the main characters!

      Awww…that sounds so cute 😍 I love mysteries…not the gruesome ones though. Cozy mysteries 😊 You know…Jessica Fletcher style. The one I’m reading now is ‘Southern Spirits’ – it’s a paranormal mystery. It’s a great read if you don’t mind a few ghosts thrown in here and there 😁
      I really recommend the ‘Needlework’ series by Monica Ferris – small town setting- and-characters 😏 Needlework shop owner, and a mystery to solve. Quite harmless, no graphic crime scenes…I can’t take those anymore 😊

    I have a lot of brain fog moments, it happens πŸ™„. On a good note, my daughter saw your granny square blanket and thought it was great! She even picked out her favorite squares 😊.

      Awww 😍 That’s so sweet…which ones did she pick? I like the poppies so much I’m thinking of making a ‘Poppy Blanket’ maybe with a few sunflowers sprinkled in. πŸ˜ƒ
      I’m glad I’m not alone in my brain fog 😐 Thanks for telling me πŸ™‚
