Hello Beautiful. (Frodo says "hi")
It's been a flustery kind of week. On Wednesday, while rushing to go to work, I jammed the wrong car key into the ignition. Well jammed means that I couldn't drive that car. My husband spent the morning prying the key out, calling a tow truck and well.....Let's say "haste makes waste" and it's going to be an expensive fix.
So with that snafu looming about in my brain, I've been focusing on enjoying my daughter's visit! We went shopping a few times this week and I've been cooking all my new meals for her to taste test. Because she lives alone she's challenged by cooking for one. As you know, I'm challenged by cooking for two! It all comes down to flavor to make cooking exciting. She leaves tomorrow.
Our son arrives home on Thursday for three weeks before he leaves for a summer research program. This will be the first summer without kids. I think I'm okay with that. It's interesting to see them carve their paths in life while my husband and I have fun doing our activities. I'm learning to enjoy this empty nest life.
I found another mistake in my sunflower shawl and decided to let it be. It's the kind of mistake that could be considered a creative adaptation of the pattern and only I know it's there (and now you!). Knitting with a wool silk blend is a tactile pleasure that a knitter should experience in their lifetime. I've been daydreaming of more knits with a similar fiber content.
May you have a lovely weekend :)
