WOOL WARMTH


For the last two days I have pretended we are living in the arctic with the historical amount of snow and -40 degree temps. Survival has come in the form of wearing nearly every knitted thing I can find for quick jaunts to the garage or to help dig out our street-parked car. Good news is I've spoiled myself with something new to commemorate the frigid event, too, having taken a break from knitting things to sell locally for other peeps. At first it felt a little selfish, but now it feels so good. 

How do you cope when winter's at it worst?

Good news: Rain and temperatures 40 degrees above freezing forecasted for the weekend. Halleluuuuu!

Cuppa joe on a recent trip to Door County, Wisconsin.

If you could be anywhere right now with a nice cup of coffee, where would you be?

IN THE BAG


today i am thankful for those who love quickly and generously. for those who understand life's brevity and give of themselves to its joys, sorrows, and the happiness of others while they can.

i am certainly the beneficiary of many people close to me living this way. this is a remarkable thing. dear ones, thank you for what you do.


this bag was an unexpected gift to me and a reminder of how lucky i am to have the friends and family that i have. trust that in it i'll carry the usual: yarn, needles, books, pens, journals, a newly acquired travel watercolor set, perhaps a camera. its ample size will also accommodate my heart's overflow and remind me of that which i have to share with others in all of life's adventures.

thanks to two and fifty.
