Here I am: Again

here I am fabricThis week, I have finished so many projects. Sewing included. My new top is finished. Even ironed. Just waiting for the sun to come out and a member of the family to be home, to act as photographer, again. I could really do with a body double.

I’m now on to my next sewing project. A top for Middle daughter, using some fabulous retro print fabric. Out come my big fabric cutting scissors, again.

here I am raised bedsTrue of every month and season, but some how May and spring always feels very much like “again”. Like a call to action.

I’ve cleared the raised beds, ready for salad, again. The kitchen garden is now clear of weeds again and planted up with peas and beans, again. It’s a good feeling. This “again” is more like a small child squealing to be thrown up in the air again, rather than the resigned start of loading the dishwasher again.

Of course, the weather has turned. We’re back in rain again. I don’t mind. It’s warm rain. I love the sound of it on the conservatory roof. In between showers, I potter around the garden, yanking out weeds that eluded me at the weekend.

There is more digging to do. More planting too, but I need the soil to dry out a bit for most of it. Then I’ll be gardening again. It does mean I can concentrate on sewing and my beans are well watered.

here I am puddleSo here I am again. Starting new projects. Again. Standing in puddles again, but I don’t mind. I like that I can take selfies in the puddles. Should they be called puddlelfies? Or just reflections? I don’t know. What do you think?


Part of my “Here I am” series. If you would like to join in with your own “Here I am” post then, please leave a comment. Just needs a photo of your feet and the ground you stand on, and I’ll set up a featured post.

    What a great idea for a post! Love you puddle selfies. For once the North has had no rain we are basking in sunshine and having to water the garden.

      I was quite glad of the rain. Only just planted beans, so they had a long soak, without the snails chewing through them.

    I’d have to call them puddleselfies just to avoid confusion. What a lovely idea taking photos of where you stand though. I think again is right for any change of season, I can think of loads of agains for Autumn and Winter too 🙂
    Maybe you should start a here I am linky so people can link up with posts of their feet?

      I’ve been thinking about it. Thanks for the encouragement. Taking the photo is a great way to take stock of where you are. I’ll stick with puddleselfie then. Just looked up the other and removed it. Don’t want to encourage my children to look it up! Oops!

    Love the puddleselfies. This season is very unpredictable at the moment from sunshine and hot to torrential rain. I’m glad the sun has returned again today. Hope you manage to get in the garden again.

      Working today, but taking breaks out in the garden. We have the sun and the windows open. Bliss.

      It is good for the garden and everything greening up, which lifts my spirits if nothing else.

      That does not surprise me! I wouldn’t be surprised if I spot a few retro cars in one of your paintings soon!

    I love your photos and that you’ve been drawn into your creative pursuits. I’d struggle with cutting up that delightful piece of fabric in fear I’d mess up. #WotW

      The fabric cut up now. It is beautiful. Can’t wait to see her wearing it.
