In my down time, I like to find quiet ways to let out some of the day's tension and stress. Some days, I find it difficult to change gears from the fast-paced work front to the slow comforts of home. Getting out in the garden is my go-to way to wind down but currently there's not much doin's in the garden.

In the winter months, when I'm not planning my garden or nurturing seedlings, I crochet. I've been crocheting since I was 7. My mother can crochet anything. She's the one that got me started. I'm still a novice compared to her skilled hand but I do enjoy it.

I found casting on to be a bit tricky and was close to giving up when I couldn't quite get it.. but I perservered and was finally, after dropping the needles about a hundred times and getting the yarn tangled a hundred more, able to get it. I feel like I'm getting the hang of the basic stitches. I'm practicing nightly and making Bubba a scarf as a result.
