Personal Blogz - Neanderthal Wilz


Halloumi, howdy Walkerz,


How are you,? Thanks for stopping by and visiting


Being in self isolation for COVID 19 has really brought out the neanderthal in Wilz, I have gone pack to some past times I haven't done in the longest while, but it is good to try them again,


One skill I haven't done in the longest time is loom knit, I bought a kit at my local spotlight store about a year or two ago now, I have found the kit online if you would like to check it out or purchase it online https://www.spotlightstores.com/craft-hobbies/yarn-needle-art/needle-art-tools-accessories/looms/crafters-choice-circular-knitting-loom-set-of-4/80131177?gclid=CjwKCAjw_LL2BRAkEiwAv2Y3SQjEcNrSSrexfJJYLL03aEH0KAUrjFNTG0AW_lmMfIfr9GxnAF_S_xoCMHIQAvD_BwE, with some simple know how, or you can easily google how to do it, you can make your own winter woolens like beanies and scarves, sure the pattern can get a bit repetitive at times but it is lovely to know you have that skills where can make your own than always purchasing items,


Another skill Wilz likes to try her hands at living near the beach is capturing and hunting for her own dinners as I like to call it, whether it be fishing or digging for shells, nothing beats fresh seafood right from your own doorstep, while I am not the best hunter gather, I like to think you learn a lot from getting out there and trying, I also get to learn a lot from my neighbours, a lot them who are seasoned pros from many years of experience, but it is a lovely from sea to plate experience,


On the flip side, I have also been taking out my little point and shoot camera and capturing a lot more nature shots and getting in and amongst the wildlife, in particular the wild bird flocks, I am so a bird biased person, and I have a lot of wild birds that I like to sit and talk to, and in response they love to visit the yard and screech back to me, I also get to learn a lot about bird behaviours just watching them interact with their flocks, they are also learning about human ways of life from interacting with their human, they are also super adorable posers for the camera,


But to go with the pictures, Wilz has also taken to writing again, just taking out a pencil and paper and letting go with the flow, I haven't done that in the longest time since it is only too easy to hop on the laptop and to type and edit as you go, but getting back to organics with just a pencil and paper feels so soothing and relaxing, I have really wanted to try freewriting for the longest time and there is no time like the present to make it more of a habit, not only is it helping me to write more with ease, it is helping my communication skills 10 fold but just sitting down and releasing, it feels so good,


Another feel good thing I have been doing is taking the time do some extra learning on LinkedIn Learning by reaching out with my university account, I am so happy to have the opportunity to refine some of the skills I already have and to learn and try new ones which I can learn about on the site, all the courses are super helpful and if you get into any help or need further assistance, you can always reach out to the teachers and they are only too happy to help you out,


Can I ask what are some skills or things you have gotten back into whilst being in self isolation Walkerz?


Are there any past times you have gone back to enjoying or any news skills that you are trying to learn, lets share and hopefully we can learn from each other,


That is Wilz for now, travel safely Walkerz, take care and lets keep walking on this journey called life, peace out
