By this time next week, it will be November! How is that even possible? My focus for the remainder of 2018 is to slow down and savor these days.
Thinking About – Trees. Yes, that’s right, trees. I am almost done with The Overstory, and I think this might be the most fascinating book I have read all year.
Grateful For – The number of sunny days we have had recently. They are a balm to my spirit and we are getting to the Season of Endless Grey Days – so I would like to bottle up some of the sunshine to open when needed!
Inspired By – Arne and Carlos to make a few geranium clippings to overwinter in the house. Now, let’s see if I can manage to not kill them all… my interior green thumb is practically non-existent! Keep your fingers crossed for them and send some good grow mojo their way! Ha!
Fun, fun, fun – It has been quite chilly the past few mornings on my walk, so I have had mittens on the brain! These mittens certainly fill the fun category and they look super warm as well: En Halv Citron and Spunni!
That is all I have for today – have a great weekend and I will see you all back here on Monday!
I hate the darkness of the winter months. I could deal with the cold so much better if we had more sun! I guess I should be thankful that I at least have a window in my office now; in my original office, I didn’t, so there were days when I never saw the sun (because it was dark when I came to work and dark when I left).
I don’t think we’ll see much sun this weekend, but it should be a good one for staying inside and crafting!
I have cuttings and divisions from my SiL, cuttings from friends, and even an amaryllis in MD, but I don’t have any cheerful geraniums. As soon as the furnace guys leave, I’m heading out to get one or two for myself. (The furnace hasn’t been cleaned for 15 years so this might take a while!)
I have always been partial to trees . . . but after reading Overstory, I’m paying much closer attention! 🙂
Have a great weekend, Kat! XO
Just when I could wear a light sweater I’m going to have to get out the chunky stuff! This weather has been CRAZY! Happy Friday!
I’ve kept geraniums through the winter and they’ve bloomed…never tried cuttings but I will…I have a hanging plant that’s bloomin’ again, so a rainy weekend project…or at least, something to add to my “wish list”! Enjoy the weekend!
I’m wondering if I missed my opportunity to grab a cutting or two! We’ve had some hard frosts. I’ll be checking as soon as I get home. Have a wonderful weekend Kat!
im already working on gray day planned pick me ups. I plan to socialize much more this winter. I plant to go back to the knit shop wednesdays . I plan to play at the barn more
I brought in the geranium, the desert bloom, the moss roses, (a first to try to winter over) and 3 tiny trees! Yes real trees. Im not ready to plant them outside yet . They are too fragile. Gifts from a pals yard.
Funny! I have been thinking about mittens too. But, mine won’t be quite so fancy. LOL
Earlier this fall I was inspired to do some cutting from my gigantic coleus pots on the deck and then . . . I didn’t. LOL. I decided it was easier to just start over in the spring than try to keep them alive all winter! Happy Weekend, Kat!
I’ve been wearing mittens every morning along with the headband I knit for my trip last month. I LOVE mittens. I think my Monday afternoon group is going to make the Wooly Tattoo Floral Mitts (http://www.loopknitlounge.com/2018/04/spring-making/) from Making No. 5. Fun, right? Have a great weekend!!
I wish we had more sunny days – it’s been bleak for my weekend overall (was in Canada). I’m looking forward to getting caught up in the next few days on my life here at home.
Rusty used to keep geraniums over the winter all the time and those blooms were always so welcome!
We have experienced some warm golden days of autumn. I am savoring each one. I love the mitten links. Mittens are one of my favorite things to knit. I should try geranium cuttings. One year I brought two geraniums inside to winter in front of a walk-out basement door – south exposure. About mid-winter some insects hatched and so out they went into the cold. Cuttings in fresh soil would be much better.
