trying to solve a problem,
the first solutions you come up
with are very complex,
and most people stop there.
But if you keep going,
and live with the problem
and peel more layers of the onion off,
you can often times arrive
at some very elegant
and simple solutions."
- Steve Jobs
It is one of the drawbacks of living on a dirt road. But, on the bright side there is nothing more cheery and than watching a school bus full of children, bounce by the house on a dry, sunny, Spring afternoon, in a giant cloud of dust.
Unfortunately, this kind of weather often aggravates my fibromyalgia and the added pain and fatigue makes it difficult to fully enjoy the rainy days the way I would like to.
I have been trying to keep moving and active here around the house, but my joints are so inflamed it makes everything I do a challenge. I tried picking up my knitting for awhile today, but my fingers let me know pretty quickly, they were not in the mood.
So instead of getting all worked up and frustrated with the pain flare, I thought, why not look through some old picture albums and revisit a few of my past projects.
Doing so reminds me, that like with all things: "pain flares will pass" and I will be back to doing what I love soon. I hope you enjoy the pictures and the stroll down my "Fiber Memory Lane". Have a lovely afternoon!
