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.
I have had a tug of war with Easter. There have been some rocky times that have fallen during this special week. So this year, it was such a treasure to watch our tiny person join the big kids for the Palm Sunday procession of the palms. He was a bit puzzled when everyone stopped, but he waved his palms with joy. I think this is the Easter that will give me a new set of memories.
Thinking about my Birkin sweater that has been ignored all week and planning to pull it out for Friday night tv viewing.
Grateful for the weekend coming up without much on the calendar.
Inspired by the beautiful post Edinburgh Yarn Festival pictures still popping up on my Instagram feed and all the lovely yarn and meet ups that happened.
Fun for tomorrow – I got a free Pilates class at a new studio so I will head over there and try it out.
And because it was a weird week, I will close with an extra gratitude for all the time I get to spend with our tiny person. He is loving being outside and loading up his dump truck with rocks.
I love his curiosity. He dropped down in from of this little fenced area and looked at the sleeping herb garden for a long time. Such a great reminder to pay attention. Winter is fading away and I am excited for spring in a new way. I am imaging more herbs, the lavender bushes coming back, cucumbers, maybe even some blueberry bushes. What are you excited about?
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.
I am behind on almost everything in my life with the exception of knitting. And honestly, all I want to do is knit all the things. So this weekend I loaded all my out of the house activities into Saturday and the took Sunday off from being in the world. I entertained the not so tiny person and when he took a nap, so did I. We played, read books, ate snacks, looked at worms and sticks at the park. It was lovely.
The weekend was also full of knitting. I cast on my Stopover – had to change yarn choices but still knitting from stash. I wanted to use that blue but I didn’t have the right contrasts so there is more grey on my needles. After checking with Kat, I stuck with the waist shaping as written. I have 4 inches left on the body. Then I am going to try knitting the sleeves magic loop and two at a time. I also made it to the sleeve divide on my Birkin. Now I have inches and inches of meditative stockinette to fill my evenings.
And now I guess I will tackle Monday.,
This day started with oversleeping – a very rare occurrence and on a day when I had an early meeting. Then my necklace was so tangled that I couldn’t wear it. There was too much grumpiness at that early meeting and then some no-shows for my tours. Argh!
But there is a silver lining. I have been reading this wonderful book (after hearing the author read last week) and our not-so-tiny person came to spend the evening with us – so much fun.
I did unravel the orange sweater and I have two fun hats on the needles and really, you must read this book.
