Joy and Comfort
I love how Frodo turns his head when I have the big camera, so modest. This is after he has done three or four twirls because he thinks we are taking a walk outside. A whole week of Advent has past and I'm wondering where it has gone! I decorated the house last weekend and once again, I enjoyed my walk down memory lane. Where I purchased an ornament, who gave me one to hang on my tree. Of course all the ones my mother and grandmother made are treasured the most.
The cowl is growing stitch by stitch. Perhaps it will be finished this weekend? My hands, wrists, forearms and shoulders would be ever so grateful. I have to take mini breaks to give my body a rest. I know my daughter will love the finished cowl and I will love to be finished with the cowl. A win win situation.
Did you see my NEW red Moleskine mini notebook? It replaces the tattered one I carry in my purse for over two years. Another birthday gift. I write my lists in there, and whatever I want to capture before I forget. The system works for me. In the basket is the cutest, tiniest notebook with a pocket I've ever seen. A birthday gift from my daughter. I have yet to write inside but gosh just looking at it daily makes me smile.
Next weekend the kids come home for the winter breaks. Cooking for two will turn into cooking for four. When I cook for two that usually is just cook once or twice a week then we have leftovers for the rest of the week. So a menu plan has to be created soon. I need to brush up on my skills in the kitchen.
You know I'd rather be knitting.
What is your Joy and Comfort this season?
