Some books you enjoy.
But some books just
swallow you up
heart and soul. "
~ Joanne Harris
I am still waiting on snow,
but the polar clipper that
made it's way across the
country finally arrived so
at least it's been cold.
There is a fire in the woodstove,
I am able to wear some
of the woolies I have been
keeping stored in the cedar
chest, I have knitting by
my side and I'm happy.
I spent a little time darning
a sweater I picked up at
Goodwill. There were two
tiny hole and I had yarn that
was almost an exact match
to repair it. I thought about
ripping down the sweater for
the wool, but darning worked
so well and I can add another
sweater to my stack.
I have been drinking green
juices and smoothies daily
and have noticed a great increase
in my energy level. I know when
I eat properly I feel better so I'm
not sure why I feel the need to
eat things I know will make me
feel lousy, sigh.
Since the sick germs still seem to
be all around I have added a new
drink to my day, turmeric milk
[ I used almond milk]. Have you
tried it? I make a double batch
and keep it in the ice box to
warm as needed.
I started reading a book recommended
to me by a friend and was pleased
to find in my church library. Some
books just reach out and grab you,
they inspire you and make you want
to help make the world a little better,
this book is one of them.
I received a phone call this evening
letting me know of the need for
mittens for Koalas ......
and while I don't sew very well, I think
this is something I can do and thought
you might too.
Enjoy a great weekend.
