Current Gratitudes and News
I've been sitting on a secret that I've been dying to tell you for about two weeks. My daughter and son in law will be relocating from Santa Barbara, CA to somewhere in Delaware (exact location unknown) by the beginning of October! Yes! I am still in disbelief.
They will live approximately three hours away - by car. This is my first gratitude. As for the rest, they are:
-getting to the second section of the chart of the white out shawl. For me it seems like it took forever, maybe because I ripped out the entire first section. Sadly, the lace chart has stitch manipulation on both right and wrong side rows, I love when the purl side is a free ride of not-thinking and I'm missing that component.
-I've been killing the puzzles lately these days. We switched to an online local paper in January and I print out the Sunday puzzles which are doable for me compared to the NYT's crossword puzzle. I like feeling smart.
-thank you for all the blanket love! I enjoyed reading your comments and you celebrating with me having the long term project finished.
-the black walnut tree leaves are falling - squee!!!
-darker mornings and darker evenings - both hinting at the arrival of autumn.
-the absence of a worry - these are the days I want to bottle up and remember for when I'm swamped with a niggling thought. Don't worry, I'm writing them down. I celebrate the knowledge I have of valuing my contented carefree days. All days should be like this.
What are you grateful for this week? I'd love to know!
