Beautiful Autumn Day
- What a beautiful autumn day!! I love it when it is cool in the morning and then the sun takes over and warms up the afternoon. By dusk it will be chilly again and we can sleep with the windows open and let in some nite air. I posted a photo of the mums in my front garden that are full on right now!! Aren't they great. I love flowers!
- I'm about half way finished with the diagonal pattern for my sons afghan. Man oh man, I sure hope this thing turns out straight. It is looking a little cock-eyed right now and this is when I usually begin my panic and start ripping out stitches. This time I will have a little faith and see it through to the end. If nothing else the entire blanket will be diagonal, in keeping with the patterns theme. The pillow is slow going but I still love doing this stitch. It helps that I also love the yarn color. (I'm using love a lot, I know----must be in the air). It is called "blue mist" in the LB sport ease. It has so many subtle colors in it that your eyes are always picking up on a different hue depending on what is around you or what your wearing.
- I have lit some 'green tea' incense and it smells wonderful... I may need to go back to the store and get more of this one. I was a little skepticle of it before I lit it, but took a chance anyway and it payed off, yeah! I love to sit and crochet on a weekend afternoon when everyone else is busy with their own projects and entertainment. I sit in the livingroom with my incense and the day light pouring in the window and listen to nothing (and everything) all at once. It's a nice feeling having your family around and yet not having to deal with some crisis. That is bliss.
- Hope you all are having a great Sunday as well.
Old spirit, in and beyond me, keep, and extend me. Amid strangers, friends, great trees and big seas breaking, let love move me. Let me hear the whole music, see clear, reach deep. Open me to find due words, that I may shape them to ploughshares of my own making. After such luck, however late, give me to give to the oldest dance....Then to good sleep, and - if it happens - glad waking. ~Philip Booth
