She unfolds her treasures
to his search, unseals his
eye, illumes his mind, and
purifies his heart; an
influence breathes from all
the sights and sounds of
~Alfred Billings Street
early with the arrival of my
favorite wee one. We spent
a glorious four hours together
while her parents competed
in a bridge run. With a morning
low of on 38 degrees I was
quite happy to stay in by the
wood stove, reading books, braiding
hair and drawing pictures with
the big markers. It was a very
fast four hours!
I have been casting on and frogging
over and over again, but I think
I have finally gotten the Disappearing Cast On
and am 54 rows in on EZ PI Shawl.
I used a worsted weight yarn on
size 9 needles just to get the hang
of it and am really pleased with
how it's turning out. My goal
is to visit the yarn store on
Tuesday [she's closed on Monday's]
and purchase the yarn so I can
join everyone on the Leaves Of Grass
KAL. It looks like a great group and
a lot of fun.
I did managed to play with my
camera a little, although I am wondering
if I will ever get the hang of aperture,
ISO and shutter speed! Right now
it is all a jumble and I just need
to leave it a lone for a while.
Getting outside and going for a long
walk helped, no noise, just the
peace, the quiet that I need and crave
daily. There really is something
about being alone in nature that
touches my soul.
Today it has been overcast outside
and quiet inside. The guys have been
outside taking care of things and I
have been sitting in my favorite rocking
chair knitting and keeping warm.
This afternoon will be more of the same,
then I will cook a modified version of
turkey tetrazzini for my men and
finally watch the movie I have
heard so much about from everyone.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend
wherever you are!
Joining with Amanda.
