|The white I rug I have been working on. I call it my tv rug project since it's too big to carry around it's my go to project when watching tv or sitting outside.|
|When spring rolls in every I get the itch to embroider. I love seeing it come to life slowly on a blank cloth. It's my favorite needlework in the summer.|

The example I had given was from personal experience. About 2 year ago posts from my blog were printed and used to suggest that I was overwhelmed. My blog was something I always enjoyed writing and following blogs was a source of creativity and inspiration. Seriously have you ever met a mother that never got tired and looked great all the time. Ahem.
Because of that I took a break from blogging to minimize additional unwanted backlash on my parenting. It was hard to return and I considered just shutting it down. My answer to her question was no I didn't regret it I just lost my love for it and could not get back into it. I had no regrets I put thought into what I wrote and it was my creative outlet.
At times I have missed it and I would snap a picture with intentions of posting and of course never did. After a this question was asked to me I thought well why not return to it. I don't have to post everyday just when inspiration strikes share something neat. Check on my favorite blogs when I need that burst of creativity.
So here I am again.
- First up is change up change the blog colors/design. A little blog spring cleaning.
- I had a yummy salad to post yesterday.
- Just finished reading Labor Day by Joyce Maynard next up is The Gilly Salt Sisters by Tiffany Baker. If I had a project to go with it they would have been on the yarn along this week
- Oh and why is the picture on it's side that you have to turn your head to see the books? Ah well because whatever medium I use to bring in the picture it will NOT rotate. I gave up trying otherwise I thought I would never post again.
- Finally got an instagram account to go with my blog thislittlekitchenblog
- I have feeling I'm going to be really enjoying that. Why did I wait so long?

For quick salad today there was some leftover corn on the cob, tomatoes, mint leaves and scallions. Season with a little salt and olive oil and a bright and cheery salad to go with our lunch.

College Prep Homeschooling and jotting down notes to refer back to later. A couple of months ago I discovered audiobooks and playaways for the family. I love the playaways because they are easy to carry all that is needed are headphones and a battery and into my bag they go. It really helps pass the time doing chores, shoveling and waiting at activities. I'm listening to Summberland by Elin Hiderbrand right now. As much as I enjoy the playaways and audio books they don't replace books. They are handy to pass the time while doing laundry or when I can't sit and read.
Hope you are enjoying a good read today.

I have had these fingerless gloves in the works since last winter I'm thinking its time to finish them, so into the activity bag they go.
Glad to be back in the yarn along this week can't wait to see what everyone else has on the needles.

For the Yarn Along this week another Mollie Makes came in the mail recently. I have been catching up on some older issues of Real Simple. Does anyone else keep stacks of magazines and I mean a year or 2 worth of each magazine that you like? Love having them for inspiration or in the winter and summer between books.
