My yarn order arrived yesterday from Eat Sleep Knit - the best kind of mail ever. I ordered silky alpaca and for my next knit, Whiteout. Depending on my babysitting hours today, I hope to cast on.
How has your week been?
The daisies are blooming along my roadside walks and they're delightful. I remember making daisy crowns as a child and wearing them all over the place. Also, as children we had a great digging spot for creativity under a large white pine at our grandparent's summer cottage. I would make mud pies, adorned with daisies, dandelions and various stones from the graveled road.
My gram was skilled at making all four of us children feel special without playing the favorite game. She would 'taste' each mud pie slice and give each child a prize. Best texture, best flavor, best decorated. Everyone was a winner.
As I walk with Frodo, I can crisply remember the sun on my shoulders in the early days of June during childhood. The humidity low, the breezes cool. I was eager to be outside whenever possible and eked out the best that summer offered. Biking riding, sprinkler running, playing tag games and eating meals outside instead of inside.
Our pool is back to being filled, the leak fixed and while my husband vacuumed the other day, I sat on the patio reading a book and relaxing. Summer is here.
I am doing my yoga routine at the break of dawn. I welcome the stretching and reaching while the birds greet the day as the sun starts to shine.
Life is Good.
