Good morning! I’ve been working on my Antarktis shawl, and it is an enjoyable, easy pattern, with the exception, that at least for me, with diagonal patterns, I have to keep track of where I am with pen and paper. So after a couple false starts, it’s going well and kind of fun.
I worked all weekend, and if you don’t know me already, I’d much rather be at home. It’s not the work that bothers me, it’s the talking to people all day that wears me out. Being a quiet person, it takes a lot of effort, but this only makes me more grateful to be home. So, yesterday evening, feeling very happy to be home, we fired up the Bar-B, and put some potatoes on to boil, and while the meat smoked, we took a walk down the street, enjoying the greenery that arches over the road, the fresh air, and our friendly neighborhood llamas.
It was so funny! They were minding their own business way out in the field, but soon they all joined a line and came trotting toward us, (I love how they run, it’s so adorable), to see if we had snacks no doubt. No. The sign says we can’t feed you. But I assured them I’d be back to visit and we’d be friends. So cute!
This morning I ventured outside to take a look around. Everything is loving the rainwater that came overnight. There has been so much rain, I didn’t think I’d have blooms to share with you, until I turned and saw these around the side of the house. A surprise to me, since the last time I looked, they were only tan looking buds.
My daughter sent me a picture of the baby robins that hatched near her back door. Do you remember the picture of their eggs? She said the mama was calling her to get away as she took the photo. Our world is full of so many cute and precious little things. So grateful am I for all of them.
And I’m grateful for all of you. Your kindness has been so wonderul, astonishing to me even. I appreciate you friends; so very much:)
Later today, Nolan is having friends over. We’ll be going out for icecream and then spending time together here at home. But for now, I’ll grab another cuppa, my knitting, and enjoy the quiet of the morning. I hope your day is off to a good start, and I hope things you love to do can be worked into your day as well.
