Its Summer!!!

Summer has finally arrived.  I have found my long neglected blog and maybe some time and energy to write something inspiring. Whhoohoooo!!!

Spring has really been a busy time for me this year.  And sadly it has not left me much time to write on my blog or dedicate as much time as I'd like to my Etsy shop.  There has been a lot of personal issues come up in my life that have really needed my attention and energy, I am trying to flow with that.  Dietary issues have been a major factor; gluten, dairy, soy and peanut intolerance to be more exact.  Both my eight year old son and I have be presented with the challenge of these intolerances, and although we've had a few bumps in the road both of us are quite happy with our diet and are adjusting into healthier and much happier Mother and Son. 

Spring is about New Growth, and that is something I have been very busy doing.  Its also about letting go of things that are no longer useful to you.  I have been doing housekeeping within myself and in my house.
Meditation and mindfulness have been two things I have been bringing into my everyday life.

Have I been crocheting up a storm?   Oh, yes!  I have been hard at work doing alot of things I never seem to find the time for in the Fall and Winter.

This summer I decided I was going to take more time for my family.  I am really not putting a huge effort into my shop right now.  My garden always consumes so much of my time too, not that I don't enjoy it.  :)  I also wanted to be able to just crochet when I felt the desire, I do often feel the desire, but if I wanted to not be held down by getting orders out on time.  This will also allow me to get ahead for the Fall/Winter season and have some items in stock and ready to go!!

Not to mention we have decided to add a dog to the mix.  The dog is 5 years old and in need of a loving family home.  We are pretty excited to have him join our family.  I will post pictures of him when he is settled in. 
Summer is leading us out doors for bicycle rides, hiking, camping, swimming, not to mention our garden.  So amongst all this busy energy I am finding opportunities to just enjoy the moment, and flow with life.
