this is lemonade

A mindful, grateful, creative life: Life constantly hurls lemons at us. I’m on a mission to make lemonade as best I can, by God’s grace.

Inspirational knitting sessions!


Wow is it already Friday?! I’ve been making progress with the grey snood and having some relaxation in the process… been enjoying some TED talks whilst working the yarn. Thought I’d share a few that particularly inspired and challenged me. Kinda made knitting feel like a really productive task – enjoy! And take care this weekend – thinking especially of everyone affected by the stormy weather and tidal surges affecting the UK. Hope you’re all ok ❤

A talk about lollipop moments! “There is no world, there’s only 6 billion understandings of it. And if you change one person’s understanding of it…you change the whole thing.”

A talk about how feminism most definitely isn’t dated, with a lot of humour, realism and passion.

Our current education systems educate creativity out of children. We need to be “…seeing our creative capacities for the richness they are, and seeing our children for the hope that they are.”

  1. What a great idea to knit and get educated! I’ll have to check these out.
    I made five simple hats for the family this year. It was fun. Now I need to make one for myself.

  3. TED Talks are great! Thanks for the reminder to visit again. Haven’t looked around TED in a while … and has been even longer since I knitted 😉

  4. I heard about your extreme winds and weather – wow! am assuming you are fine? Take care.

  5. I l.o.v.e TED talk! I’ve also just had a nosey round your blog (which is gorgeous), and I’m now craving cheese on toast…
