I have been coping remarkably well with the change in seasons this year. The transition from summer to fall happened really slowly for us and I still don’t even really feel like it’s been that cold. I’m not sure what that means for later on in the winter, probably it will be a long and cold one, but so far so good. I’ve found a new hobby, if you couldn’t tell. I’ve been getting in touch with my inner kiddult and am finding how much I enjoy collecting dolls. I actually just got one back today from getting its face painted and I’ll very happily show you it sometime this week.
I have also gotten back into crochet. I was worried that I had gotten bored of it, but making Christmas gifts is really a great motivation for me to pick up my crochet hook again and get to work. I recently finished an Amigurumi Game of Thrones Dragon Egg for someone for Christmas. I think it turned out really well and I’m proud that I was able to complete it in such a quick time and that I am so satisfied with it. I haven’t completed a crochet project in over a year. I have many that sit unfinished, but this one I finished and it looks great. What do you think?
To me, there’s nothing more relaxing than sitting on “my side” of the couch and cozying up with a hot cup of tea or cappuccino and crocheting something.
Work has been keeping me very busy and I haven’t had time to dwell on my anxieties. I got a promotion recently and am going to be much busier learning all the new things that I need to learn to keep up with this new position. It’s very exciting and I would say almost fun, not stressful. I love learning new things and it keeps me from getting bored quickly, which then leads me to worrying about the stupid things that my mind obsesses over when i’m not busy with other things.
So, I’m coping. Life has been pretty decent so far and I’m trying to enjoy my cozy little home and not worry too much about what’s going on outside of it. It’s worked so far. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this continues to work for me, for now at least.
How have you been coping with the changes in weather? Do they affect you much?
