I opted to walk in my favorite park and was greeted by a lovely black crow poking around the dirt I have long believed the crow to symbolize transformation and lately that seems to be at the forefront of my life right now.
I notice this large rock at the edge of the basketball court so out of place sitting there just being a rock. I would have liked to carry it along with me but I still had plenty of walking to do and nothing to put it in. My hands would have suffered carrying it and I have enough trouble with my fingers.
I have always loved trees and can spend hours just looking at them, it's a kind of mediation I suppose and often I'm wondering what stories they could tell if only the trees could speak.
What I'm reading on this wonderful Wednesday: for the Try Something New Challenge https://theherdpresents.blogspot.com/2017/12/try-something-new-challenge.html
I'm reading a new to me author, Ellen Stimson, the book is Mud Season and it has me laughing out loud and commiserating with some of the circumstances. The Herb Quarterly isn't new to me or part of the challenge but I am reading this as well.
In between reading, writing a few letters and walking in the park I'm stitching a cute little Valentine for absolutely no reason except a friend sent me the pattern so I thought I would stitch it up, put it a hoop and send it back to her completed, hopefully in time for Valentine's Day.
I finished the embroidery on the sun piece so now I need a hoop and backing fabric to finish it off I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.
