Did you know we are now down to our last 100 days in 2022? 265 down and 100 to go until the New Year and all the obvious stuff that comes with it. The Resolutions…the “new me”…the promises of changing things, the diets…blah, blah, blah. No thanks.
I’ve always been a fan of this time of year (September and Autumn are my favourites). The crisp, sunny and misty mornings giving everything a fresh new look. I’m ready for the cozy nights in. More than ready to snuggle up with a good book, a glass of red, some knitting or this ol’ blog. I think I tell myself this time every year to get blogging again because I know I miss it.
So, when I saw Sophie’s Last 100 Days Project on Instagram, I was intrigued…and I more or less signed up straight away. 100 days of prompts, lists etc. Yeah, I’m here for it. I don’t know what is coming every day with the project, just that I feel that I need it. So what will I share on here? I don’t know. But it has got me thinking about the rest of 2022 and 2023 already, which is a good feeling.
I think what I’m trying to say is with all the above, I’m hoping to blog every day for the next 100 days (and maybe more, who knows?!). Just something that has given me joy that day. I like to think I’m a joyful person (some may say different…!), so I’m looking forward to seeing what I grab from day to day life.
There’s a lot to be joyful about! So, it can’t be that hard…
So, here goes, Day 1 and 2 of 100 days of joy.
If only I’d known when I was knitting this teddy a couple of years back, that these days Maisie would be pushing him around in her little pram…wiping his little nose ever so carefully with a tissue…jumping into bed with him to watch Raa-Raa!…or passing him to me because he wants “boo-boo’s”…
If only I’d known, I might have finished him off a bit better…tidied him up a little…or a lot.
All I know is I have a great big smile on my face when I see her running back into the room to grab him when she feels the need to.
Was it the nap that I got excited about because I was sure I was going to fall into a deep sleep too (I didn’t)…or is it the way she crosses her legs when having a serious discussion* with me when she’s parked up her pram? Or maybe it was the scone we had just before lunchtime? I don’t know, it was all good and all slow days at home are always a good idea, in my eyes.
*I say discussion, by that I mean Maisie jibber jabbers and points and gives me sly eyes aplenty.
Feel free to join in and tell me what has given you joy today.
