The "word of the year" thing has been going around for quite some time, but I feel like this year it really has exploded. It makes sense because who wants to make actual resolutions or plans when we don't know what this year will bring?
My word of the year is "Simple". I've always been constantly busy with projects, that's just who I am, but maybe it's ok to not do all the projects. I've come to the point, with knitting especially, where I don't need the end product. I could probably wear a different knitted accessory for months without repeating! Lately I have been focusing on just knitting one thing at a time, and choosing projects more for what I would like to work on, rather than the end result.
The other day I went on a walk and saw a bunch of turnips and potatoes sprouting in the field. They are sitting on top of the ground and growing, which means that someone must have tossed a load of root vegetables. But why?? There is a story here, and I wish I could know it.
