This weekend my knitting needles have been ultra busy as I crank out a sweet cardigan. I've been enjoying the familiarity of knitting the same pattern, but a different size. I love to knit the same patterns over and over again, do you? I didn't used to be like that. In my youth, I was searching for the next 'great' pattern. Now I just want to pick up and knit, knowing my gauge is good and the yarn is reliable.
This pop of lavender is cheerful - Hello spring!
Our son left yesterday, his spring break is over and done. He started looking for a sublet in Cambridge for his externship at Harvard this summer and I get too stressed out about the whole thing. So I kept internally chanting 'this is not your problem'. Now that he's back at his apartment my worries are over (out of sight, out of mind).
One of the reasons I love my babysitting job so much is because the problems are small. Does she want an apple? cheese? Her talking is mostly intelligible but sometimes she throws me a curve and I'm just not sure. I eventually figure out what she wants and I feel so happy!
That is my kind of stress :)
For all you Holly and Frodo lovers, we are making progress. The whole weekend, Holly was the instigator and Frodo was the victim. Kids, jeez!

Today is beautiful, the sun is shining and it's over 45 degrees. I've been researching common bird sounds so I know who is singing to me on my daily walk. I feel like I'm learning a foreign language, it's not easy. I'm a visual learner (I'm a knitter!).
Well, I'm off to drink some green tea and read some blog posts. How was your weekend? I'd love to hear all about it.
