Above is a photo of my last two hats and one pair of mittens. I made them for my grandsons, both of whom love them. (I wasn’t sure but yes they loved them.)
Before I start my next project I thought I would use the rest of my blue yarn and make a few more hats. Generally I do these kind of things in the summer to have them ready to donate to charity in the fall. For some reason I feel the need to make more so will continue on. Following my feelings always pays off.
I saw Auntie this morning and we talked about what it was like sailing across the ocean on a liner. I am not much for boats so am in awe of those folk who traverse the water to reach a destination. Her mind comes and goes, wandering off now and then, so conversation is patient and interesting. She did talk about the joys of having a wonderful partner for over thirty years but the pain of the big goodbye.
It is hard to believe it is finally the middle of the month. The first week seemed to drag on endlessly until the second week found it’s roller skates and sped up.
I finished a few books; Clive Cussler’s Ghost Ship, Sue Grafton’s Undertow ( a reread), an Agatha Christie Hercule Poirot short story. Books and stories are my comfort blanket. Lost a dear friend of the family this past week, my age, so have a funeral to attend Monday morning.
It is important I think to find joy and humor is each day. It is there.
