Knittings and Musings
Yesterday I started a pair of fingerless mitts for my daughter upon request. I don't know about you, but when my family asks for a hand knitted item, I get giddy deep down inside. There's a quiet joy rummaging through skeins of wool and patterns, matching and creating. One mitt is nearly finished and hopefully the pair will be gifted while she is here next week.
I've been holding up bravely when I look at the coffee table. It will get worse (messier) once my daughter arrives home. For now it's not bothering me one bit. Sometimes, I must confess, I have piles of stuff-that never bothers me. Double standards. I'm back into the swing of planning out menus and buying enough food, keeping up with household chores.
It's raining at the moment and all week it's been cloudy and humid. I've noticed some early leaves changing yellow and falling. My oak tree has begun to drop a few acorns, however summer is still here.
My moleskine journal is filled up, pages and pages of thoughts and events have been scribbled. This is one of many ongoing notebooks/journals that I have around. I have one for quotes and observations, my "to do" book, a planner and a creative notebook. I won't go into my pen collection it's extensive, I will say I prefer a pen with a cap.
How about you? How many notebooks/journals are you keeping?
