Take your needle, my child,
and work at your pattern;
it will come out a rose by
and by. Life is like that -
one stitch at a time taken
patiently and the pattern
will come out all right like
I think Friday's are now
the start of the weekend,
at least they are for me.
This Friday saw take out
pizza and a movie, but the
best was Saturday. I woke
up Saturday with no headache
and my fever gone so I
was able to go to town,
walk past my favorite house,
on my favorite street [it holds
my LYS], to Tabby Studios and

the wee one on Skype and watch
her hula hoop. Seeing that little
body whirl a weighted hula hoop
round and round was one of the
funniest things I have ever seen.
Gosh I miss her.
Today it's quiet. I am practicing
on my embroidery skills, knitting
and waiting for butter to soften
so I can bake cookies. The rest
of the day is all about relaxation.
Joining with the ever lovely Amanda.
