Because time itself is like a spiral, something special happens on your birthday
each year: The same energy that God invested in you at birth is present once
~Menachem Mendel Schneerson
This weekend has been about
celebrating the 5th birthday
of my favorite person. All
five of my babies met at
the beach and spent the
day eating, swimming,
laughing, and just enjoying
each others company. It is
so hard for me to believe
that Emerson will be five
on the 7th of this month.
I overslept this morning,
not getting out of bed until
almost 8:30. Today the
temperature is suppose
to climb to 96 degrees,
without the heat index, so
I have plans to stay inside,
knit, read, maybe paint,
and eat ice cream. Butter
Pecan is my favorite favor
of ice cream, what's yours?
Tomorrow I will be spending the day helping my second to the last son move to his own place in town, leaving me with only one left at home. I have cried all my tears so I hope tomorrow to be nothing but helpful and supportive. I will confess though that I would love if all of my children would live at home, selfish I know, but true.
Daylight savings time
has knocked me for a
loop and I am still trying
I saw my eagles this week.
Yes, I consider them mine
and I love them. I know
the photo isn't that great, but
by the time I ran inside to grab
the camera and ran back, they
were already heading to the
I've baked oatcakes twice
this week, they add just
the right touch along side
a cup of tea.
I'm enjoying participating in another
round of Love Notes and sharing
a little of myself with a complete
I watched as the guys
did some major cleaning
up, it's been a long time
in coming and now there
will be a new spot for
my strawberry plants.
But most of my week has been spent on
the couch napping and knitting. I am
so thrilled to finally understand how
to read charts. I knit from left to right
so it took a little research and some
switching of stitches, but now I
am on a roll.
I hope your week was everything you
wanted. We are suppose to be in the
high 70's over the weekend and I
am looking forward to laying in
the hammock and soaking up some
sunshine. Have a great one.
The peace you seek is there, it's there between all the traffic in your
mind, stop and rest for peace will find you if you let it.
As I looked over my Christmas list early yesterday morning I began to have a panic attack, I may have added just a few too many knit items to my gift giving list. Maybe?
While I am almost done with my last Annabel Cardigan [photos soon], I am still working on my sister's scarf, fingerless gloves for one son, and three others waiting to be cast on. In addition, my daughter informed me that the wee one is expecting something knit from me too.
I needed a break, a change of scenery, anything to calm down, to learn to breathe again.
I threw the scarf in a bag, took myself down town, sat by the water, knit, and listened as the world awoke and the day was underway. It was peaceful and just what I needed.... then I took myself to the yarn store, after all, my granddaughter needs a new scarf!
Books are still being listened to, this week it is Lone Wolf and I love it! Honestly, I am ready go start doing something, anything to help these magnificent creatures. One person at a time and so much can be accomplished!
