This That Happenings
I am loving this shift of light and even though I am dragging in the morning I appreciate the time change as well. These photos were taken in the morning! Yes-morning, with lightness and brightness. While I am full busy with my daughter with shopping and such. We have resumed the after dinner walk. Just the way Frodo and I like it.
Our dining room is really the piano room but the morning light is beautiful. I distinctly remember moving into this house placing boxes in this area and feeling the sun beams. The room felt so homey and welcoming. Funny though that now that we've lived here many years we only eat at the dining table for holidays or company. Taking food from the kitchen seems so "far" to go.
The socks are slowly finishing up. I sort of made a mini resolution to always have a pair on the needles without a dead line or time frame and so far I'm enjoying that resolution.
This cowl is one I wear in the springtime-not too hot and not too cold. Not too bulky and not too thin. I highly recommend the pattern. I've knit it once more last year.
My Christmas cactus is so happy by the sliding glass door. Who knew that sunlight and water would please it so? I think I'm onto something with growing plants.
Today I'll be running errands, grocery shopping and spending more time with my daughter!
Notes: In the second photo the doily is one knit by my mother-I inherited her knitting patterns and supplies and have yet come across that pattern.
Above the cowl is a key chain with the miraculous metal gifted to me by my elderly friend-whenever I drive I think of her and have a prayer in my mind.
