Welcome December | 2019

Welcome December | 2019

How did it get so late so soon? – Dr. Seuss

Ahh, December! In a whirl, you are here with your darkening, colder days.

But December you also bring Christmas trees, twinkle lights, carols, the best bits of childhood memories!

There is gift giving, with the hopes that you got just the perfect gift for loved ones near and far!

December, what you be without some last-minute rush knitting! (Yes… a phone call from my son has compelled me to knit a tiny bit more so queue up those Christmas movies! lol)

And December, you bring my birthday, although I think I am a bit less enthusiastic about its arrival than I was when I was little!

Finally, Dear December, I hope that you will still bring a good helping of that “child-like wonder” to your magical days!

Tiny Moment Tuesday | 12.18.18

Sometimes, last minute and entirely unexpected Christmas knitting are the best moments of the day.

A phone call with my son last night sparked this knitting and it warms my heart!

I think can get these done today so they can go in the mail tomorrow…at least that’s the plan!

Virtual Advent Tour – Day 16

Virtual Advent Tour – Day 16

Today, in a rare Sunday Post, I am participating again in Sprite’s Virtual Advent Tour! And, with just 8 days until Christmas today is all about Genevieve!

Dear Genevieve,

When your mom was little, she loved Sesame Street!

And, we would all watch The Snowman together – it was one of our favorites!

I hope you like these too!

Love, Nana

My amaryllis seem to be off to a better start than last year!

This week I can see lovely changes from the previous update!

We got an early start to the weekend last night! Steve is using his last vacation day for 2018 today!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Tiny Moment Tuesday | 12.4.18

Tiny Moment Tuesday | 12.4.18

It is dawning on me that keeping pace with knitting a full repeat each day on my ADVENTurer shawl is going to be a challenge. Last night, as I sat down to begin my Not-So-Peaceful Knitting again the reality of that fact became very apparent.

And, that is okay…

Because what could be better in the waning days of December to have something to look forward to beyond Christmas!

So, today on my list is to do some Peaceful Knitting and focus my mind on the joy of making.

And, to get outside to do some Peace Walking in the brisk cold air today – a very good way to clear out the cobwebs!

Happy Tuesday everyone! May your day be marked by spectacular moments of peace!
