Is still the weekend, at least for some of us… I find it curious that Steve does not have MLK Day off but he does President’s Day…
Anyway, it was a good weekend, one with tulips for Valentine’s Day and, thanks to Sarah’s Saturday release, a new sock was started (and holy cow, look how much I knit on said sock on a size ONE needle!!) This yarn has been marinating in my stash for more than a decade, but I think it was waiting for these socks! It is perfect!
A frosty start, but we have blue skies!
Today, more sock knitting as I watch something on Netflix that my son, Sam, told me is MUST WATCH TV (which is rare for him, so I am starting today!)
October is the fallen leaf, but it is also a wider horizon more clearly seen. It is the distant hills once more in sight, and the enduring constellations above them once again. — Hal Borland
My October images had a clear pattern of almost daily changes – I watched the trees go from green to glorious in slow motion – the color beginning at the top and gradually flowing down the course of the leaves. We had our first frost. We also had such amazing skies and, happily, very little rain! It also included a quick Michigan trip to visit some of my favorite people. And, movement… lots of movement.
The video last month has to be one of my favorites. There were so many butterflies all month long! Our butterfly bush just seemed to be hanging on just for this purpose and it was magical to head outside each afternoon and find dozens of them covering the blooming panicles.
Thanks for looking back at October with me! How about you? What did your October hold?
Who besides me feels a bit off kilter on this post-time change Monday?
My list is not off kilter at all though and here is what I have percolating this week:
I don’t know how this crossed my path on Friday, but it did and Saturday morning I headed to JoAnn’s to procure some Baby Velvet! Sometimes the impromptu gift knitting bug strikes and there is no way to ignore it! I forgot how fast things go on size 11 needles! I am almost done with one cowl and my plan is to make one more!
Tomorrow is an election day and even though this is an “off year,” it is still imperative that you all go out and vote! So, please… put that on the top of your list this for tomorrow.
I have some mending to do that I really can’t ignore any longer. My plan is to sit down, sew on buttons and fix hems while I listen to the two new episodes that dropped in the 1619 podcast!
And then there is the raking…sigh. Yep, all that rain and wind from late last week means that there are a plethora of leaves that need to be removed and bagged before pick-up next Monday.
Plus, all the “regular weekly to-do list” – it is a full week!
I hope your Monday is full of at least one or two things that you enjoy doing! See you back here on Wednesday, albeit a wee bit later than usual!
