Life is Messy

Life is messy ... for everyone ... on so many levels!  Mother Nature is messy too!  Yesterday she gifted us with hurricane force winds and torrential rains.  My house was messy ... I intended to stay home all day ... so I listed all the things I planned to accomplish ... my "To Do" list filled the page ...
... and then this happened!  Meet Mrs. DillyDally Bird!  Take note of my very messy dining room table too!  Yep ... I had a million things I should have done ... but life has been especially messy for one of my Knitting Buddies ... and my heart decided she needed a Mrs. DillyDally Bird!
She is a bit of a tipsy bird ... which gave me a serious case of the giggles!  So I removed a candle and placed her in the holder.
She was a joy to knit ... I was smiling or giggling during the entire process ... and successfully ignored the mess around me!  Yep ... Mrs. DillyDally Bird is very therapeutic!  Pattern can be found free on Ravelry here.
Last night our local Knit & Lit group had their monthly meeting, and I knew my KBee (knitting buddy) would be there ... so Mrs. DillyDally Bird was in attendance!  The gorgeous and delicious chocolate cake was made by her as our group was celebrating its first anniversary!
We set our messy lives aside ... drank tea ... ate cake ... and shared our thoughts about the book we had all read!  A brief respite from the storm outdoors ... and in life.
My hope is that Mrs. DillyDally Bird brings a smile to the face of all who meet her ... and that for a brief moment they forget the messes of life.

Do what you love.  Do dillydally!
Mrs. DillyDally
