Of Embroidering, Knitting, Crocheting… and Working

yarn-2564556_1920

I really like my job. Some years ago I made a choice, and I really chose my job. I am a teacher. Before this, I had worked in two factories, in the export sales offices. Maybe I could have had the chance to climb the ladder, or not because I am always a woman and, all around the world, women seem to always have to make a choice: family or a really good paid job. Anyway, I don’t want to talk about it now.

The fact is: I would like to push the ‘pause’ button. Unfortunately, I have so many hobbies and I miss them. I like embroidering, knitting, crocheting, reading books… Maybe I was born in a different era and then I was ‘time moved’ to 2018. When I was in the High school, I was considered a little bit strange, due to the fact that I so much loved those (so considered) feminine/ladies’ pastimes. wool-480550_1920

To be honest, I used to so envy those women that could keep on knitting or everything else. And this because of their wealthy conditions, mainly. They don’t need to go to work, they have the possibility to stay home and knit and read as much as they want.

But now, I wouldn’t really give up my job or my personal independence, even if I don’t earn a huge salary. Only, I am so tired, that I would like a year off, where I could devote my time to my hobbies. It would be so nice to wake up in the morning and knit. The next morning create a new curtain. And so on. But with the certainty that after book-1760998_1280one year of rest I would go back to my beloved working world.

I am only a bit tired.

 

Flower of my Day

An early season of delight. A wish of spring and pure tiny simple things, avoiding the excessiveness and immoderate.

I couldn’t resist today! I had to take these photos and share them with the world. What better than a coffee with a sweet wonderful  friend (Nadia) and these Tulips, just there, for everybody to tell us it is almost Spring and life is really wonderful.

I went oh when I saw the bulbs in the plastic bag 💓💓💓

Enjoy!
