Around Here Moments
Fall is officially here. Everywhere I look I see signs of it. The roads are lined with brown leaves, the evenings are cool and the sun feels different when it shines-less intense. During the day, I have a window or door opened to let in the fresh air (or fall allergies). Yesterday I drove to pick up our son up for the weekend. Today our daughter and her boyfriend will arrive then we will have a full house.
Frodo will be delighted to have extra playing and more snuggling. I've cleaned the house, made beds, and I am as ready as I'll ever be. Of course I have to make one more run to the grocery store, one day I hope to make "the List" that is comprehensive and inclusive to what I need.
Yesterday's drive was beautiful. When I was a girl, I thought living anywhere but Pennsylvania would be grand. Currently I wonder how I missed Pennsylvania's beauty? The mountains, trees, and rolling hills of farms is quite lovely. For more than one hour it was only me on the highway and the drive was relaxing, dare I say fun?
While knitting I'm thinking of more knitting ideas. This time of year I'm quite motivated for selfish knitting and knitting presents for the holidays. I have a notebook that I scribble down names, ideas, yarns that can all go together. One day this week in the early morning hours I was chilly and wrapped myself in my pendulum shawl. I haven't cast on another one...yet. But I'm gonna.
Hope you have a relaxing weekend! Any plans?
