I wrote earlier in the week that I've been going through a bit of a funk and have had a case of the summertime blues. I decided to refocus a bit and have cut back on some commitments and have focused on enjoying some things that will lift me out of the blues. Well, I've been working on a few things....
First, I've been listening to more music and found that I really LOVE Il Divo's music and style as well as they are all very handsome guys! I've been watching their Encore DVD and their new album The Promise.
Secondly, I picked up a knitting project that I had put aside awhile ago. I'm still a fairly new knitter and just know the very basics and would love to learn more and work on some other projects. So, I am going to finish the scarf I started and then pick a more challenging project for a beginner.
A very nice friend reminded me to take care of myself and suggested that I get out and walk and get some fresh air to take care of myself. I started doing this while listening to some music (Radiohead) on my husband's MP3 player. It was very helpful and will continue to do this. Note to self: I need to get an Ipod or MP3 player!
Of course, I would be remiss not to mention books! I decided to choose a light and fun book and picked The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen off of my book shelf. It's been just what I needed to read at the moment.
