The sun is shining, the laundry is done, the house is clean, I have two new knitting projects on the needles (one for "just me" and one for next week's newsletters), a good book on Audible ... and a blog post for this first non-holiday weekday of 2016.
My father's sister Betty drove up from North Palm Beach Saturday morning.
Here's a glimpse from today's Tuesday with Charlie.
I have two trips coming up this month and anticipate a good bit of time for knitting, but nothing too hard.
I had the happy opportunity on Saturday morning to share this photo on Instagram.
I think I'm going to start sharing these monthly collages less frequently.
I spent much of last week knitting a new afghan for Sara.
So, it turns out that finishing my sweater - knitting the second sleeve, a neckband (392 stitches of 1x1 ribbing!) and two pockets, then seaming those pockets, weaving in ends, blocking and sewing on buttons - took longer than I anticipated.
Remember back a few months when we shared favorite foods our mom's used to make?
I have a sense that "late October" is going to a lot different (Charlie's little brother is due October 28th, but Katie's doctor expects he'll be a few days early) - so I'd better document what's happening right now... right now!
When my girls were young, Halloween was my least favorite holiday.
Hello December, It seems way too early to be saying those words.
Thank you for sharing this year with me. It's been hard, but it's also been full of love, joy and family.
Wishing each of you a safe and fun New Year's Eve and a peaceful start for 2017.
