A Friday and an extra day off – just what I needed! When I went to get the coffee this morning, I found a vase filled with sunflowers, a special bottle of wine, and a salted, dark chocolate bar for our evening celebration. And if I stop at Trader Joe’s before my haircut, I will have most of the day without any obligations.
I mentioned storytelling and it is still on my mind. I have been going through supplies and found the perfect album to capture some gramma stories. I even found that I had already printed almost two dozen photos. I started playing with them yesterday and think this would be the perfect way to spend part of my afternoon. I’m not quite up to Honoré’s LOAD but I do plan to keep these supplies in a place where I can easily work on the pages.
And I am on the hem of my Sólbein cardigan. Then it will need a bath and blocking before I do the steek. I am nervous about the idea of cutting my knitting but it seems a long weekend is the perfect time.
I had time over the long weekend to play with photos, paper, and pen and this tiny, tiny moment rose to the surface.
On Wednesdays I get to spend the evening with our tiny person. I love this little menu that his momma puts in his dinner bag. Such love. Being a working momma is not always easy but she is doing a wonderful job. I am so grateful to be a part of her village.
This boy loves books. For his first Christmas, I gave him some books that we would keep at gramma’s house. I was looking forward to many hours of reading with this tiny person in my lap. But I have also come to love watching him turn the pages, looking for his favorite pictures, and pointing, just love the pointing.
The weeknd was full but low key. Christmas Eve was wonderful and Christmas Day brought some much needed time to sit and knit.
Tomorrow I will move my dad back to his apartment and let him get settled into his routine. He has worked hard with the therapists and is getting stronger every day. I am so thankful that the stroke was small and did not do the kind of damage we have seen in other elderly friends.
Today will be for making lists, picking up and putting away, cleaning out the fridge, a bit of laundry and some precious time with our tiny person.
