A - Z Challenge: Assortment

This is the first day of the rest of April's A-Z Challenge.  I always like to have a little preview of coming attractions, so here is one for you.

I know that some participants will have themes and that's a great way to focus one's thoughts.  Unfortunately, I'm a pretty unfocussed person.  My mind is a jumble of the many things I'm interested in.  or the many things I'd like to be interested in.  Or the many things I can dabble in each day. mind is crowded.  This blog allows a little to leak out and relieve the pressure.

Today, I'm thinking about getting out in the garden while the weather is half-decent.  There are always interesting photos in the garden.  This is a new-born rhubarb leaf.

Of course, I'll be thinking about knitting. 

And maybe I might think about hooking a rug.  These days, I'm more likely to be remembering  since I'm too busy to get stuff out at the moment.  Or, if I have an idea, then it's a plan for the future. 

My volunteer job as president of a seniors' association keeps me busier than I anticipated.  I get to represent our group in the community and there are huge rewards.  But also some huge headaches.  Mostly, it's fun.

Of course, I also think about kids.  They are always laughing off in a sunny corner of my brain.

'Assortment' is my A-word for today.  It's not too late to play along, visit here for more.

Since it's April Fool's Day, I'm wondering about that rhubarb leaf. It looks like something you knitted!!! Or even a chenille plant. How very odd!!

Joanna said...

Like Ginny I thought the rhubarb leaf looked a bit like something knitted. I love the idea of things leaking out of a crowded mind into your blog. I totally get that.
I'm also joining up with A-Z and like you I don't have a theme--just whatever comes into my head that day.

Great assortment :O)

Sue H said...

Love those piccies !

Hmmmmm - I, too, am suspicious of the 'baby' rhubarb leaf but as a fellow knitter I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt!!

Looking forward to what you have lined up for 'B' in this series!

SueH I refuse to go quietly!

Angie said...

I will be looking forward with anticipation to your wonderful ideas. Loved all the pictures of the grandkids in the past couple of days.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I am always impressed with the knitting skills I see on knitter blogs. Way to go. :)

just wrote a sticky note to put a pot over my rhubarb to force it, as our snow should be gone in a few days......I hope!!

I love that: "allows a little to leak out to relieve the pressure." I guess we all need to do that. I have so many interests, I don't know what to do next. Sometimes my huge amount of thoughts make me inactive because I don't know what to do next. But I just remind myself, that's what keeps me interesting, and I keep going.
