What am loving today

Crochet

So Yesterday, I promised I would let you in on my progress with my new hobby. I wish I could just express to you how good crocheting makes me feel.
Its just like am in another world. It calms me, makes me forget when I’ve had a bad day and just plainly-makes me feel good.
I hope you can tell that I love it.
Its been a few weeks now and I’ve been learning a lot. I’ve also been trying to find time, in the evenings and during weekends to find as much time as possible to crochet!
I wish you could all try it but I know that one man’s meat is another’s poison…
So lets see what I’ve been up to and please, be easy on me, am no pro….
1. I made this headband as a trial and I loved it so much. I didn’t even know how it would turn out but I still liked the finished product.

2. Then came this beanie/hat. I always wanted to make one for myself and I couldn’t resist. More red because its the first yarn color I bought.

3. Then came the obsession with baby hats. I cant stop making them. They are so easy and there are so many babies to gift them to. Some people actually want to buy them and I am excited by that thought, a little scared but excited nonetheless.

My teddy even tried one one…lol

Hope you like them as much as I do. I don’t know what it is, but I really like my new hobby! Any ideas, support, encouragement would be highly appreciated…

Loving Lately

So, how are you peeps??
I’ve not been here since Friday and am usually cool with that but damn!, I missed you people!
You have been so amazing to me and its hard to imagine a life without you.
Now that we have that out of the way…….my weekend was awesome!!
I went to visit my family as promised and I had a great time. Sorry there are no pics to support this.
We baked a cake for my sister on Saturday which was her birthday. It was so much fun.
We also helped Mama harvest tomatoes… fun but tiresome.
I came back on Sunday evening and Yesterday I had to travel to the capital (Nairobi) for some business and now am back.
Back and ready to share with you what am loving lately and what I’ve been up-to on the DIY side.
As I’ve said it a few times before this, I have taken up crocheting as a new hobby and I absolutely love it.
I’ve made a few things including a beanie and a headband for my niece Crystal .
I also made these hats at the beginning and have not yet decided who I will bless it with.

 So, what do you think about my new hobby??Any encouragement, ideas, inspiration???
 I would love to hear from you loves.
 

Loving Lately and More About Me

Hi lovely people!
I think am high, I feel like am numb, I feel sleepy, I feel crazy.
I have a stupid cold and I took some tablets yesterday night!
Problem is, those cold tablets usually make me feel like am drunk.
Anyway, if you have home remedies that can make me feel better and stop this menace, please do send them my way…..
Now, onto what am loving lately:
One thing…Crochet and more crochet. Am currently trying to learn as much as I can from YouTube and bloggers and I can say I am learning and I am loving it.
I hope to become an expert and make cute beanies like these ones. Will def keep you informed on my progress.
Next up is one of my favorite link-ups that happens once a month: Me, Myself & I.
1.What is your favorite season and why?
My favorite season would have to be fall. Yes, I know I’ve said it many times here that we don’t really have seasons here but we do have weather changes that reflect seasons. The cool yet kind of warm nature of fall fascinates me. It signifies change into something better and I love that.
2. Talk about a moment that changed your life
One moment??How can I pinpoint just one moment, it is difficult. But, I would say the day I started my first job. It signified that I was officially an adult and I had to take responsibility for my decisions.
3.If you could be one Crayola crayon color, what would you be and why?
I would be lemon yellow. This color signifies a joyful spirit that is still subtle and too screaming. I love it.
4.Describe yourself a superhero.Superpower?Name?Sidekick?
If I had a superpower, then it would have to healing people or restoring their energy. I believe good health is one of the most important things that we usually take for granted. I would love to help people feel better in an instant.
5.If you had all the money in the world and could only shop at 3 stores, where would you shop?
I don’t know about this one because I shop everywhere. I would have to say that I would go with handmade stuff especially on etsy or storenvy since I like to support crafts.
 

Loving Lately

So, today I was feeling a little cranky, (for lack of a better word). So I decided to do something that would cheer me up.
I think that feeling came from knowing that I did not have an awesome post to present to you today and that’s kind of disappointing, ain’t it? Yeah I know.
Anyway, I started going through my head and thinking of things that are making me happy nowadays. And then it struck me, am kinda loving jewelery these days. I even told hubz to buy me another cute bracelet that I saw. Not that I can’t buy it but hubz really likes to buy me such things. You know little bracelets, tiny earring, cute chains. And am so happy when he does, coz which woman wouldn’t be??
I love this small collection that I created from Joy the Store. I especially loved the first and last bracelets. They are so tiny, yet could hold so much meaning if shared between friends. I always want to attach meaning to such things. It makes me treasure them even more.
Other things am loving lately include:
-Sleeping early
-Hubz
-Having my sister around
-cuddling
– Encouraging words
-Rain
-Making new bloggy friends 
-Optimism

In the Kitchen

 I have always felt an awesome kind of connection to the kitchen. I know, I know, many women say this so its a little cliche but I still admit to this connection.
In the kitchen…
I feel like am home. I feel like am in the right place. Like its perfect timing.
My mom always taught us how to handle the kitchen. Being the first born, I had to hold the kitchen turf when my mama was away. I had to cook, wash dishes and make everything ready for my family. One thing I noticed is that, I loved it.

Now, when am in the kitchen;
I feel like I own it. I feel like I run the place.
I sometimes feel crazy……
The kitchen helps me relieve stress. If am thinking (worrying) about something, the kitchen gives me an outlet. Cooking something, be it simple or complicated, makes my heart tick.
I really don’t understand why I feel this way but I just do.
Sometimes, I feel like am clueless, but I know that I can learn.
I want to learn more.
In the kitchen:
I want to learn to cook a wider variety of dishes
I want more appliances so I can experiment more
I want to be more open to new ideas
I want to enjoy my time there even more than I do right now
I love the kitchen!!
