I hope all Mother’s enjoyed their special day! My day was great… I went to see Taylor at the Farm’s and we had a fun walk in the woods, visiting birds of prey that are being rehabilitated on the grounds. It’s so amazing to get close to an owl, or a hawk (those gorgeous, elusive creatures) and there are 3 Saw Wit owls there! I’d never seen one of these tiny owls…. such a treat! (we were far from this up close!)
It’s been beautiful here but cold! Cool night make for cozy sleeping and cool days make for sweater weather! But the plants are fine as it hasn’t yet dipped below freezing…..
The next run of days are busy ones for me. I have a yoga weekend coming up but will miss Saturday as Taylor is graduating from his masters program and we’ll have festivities afterwards. As his mom I’d like to have a ‘brag’ moment…. he called last week to say he’d received an award in his GTA program (graduate teacher) for top teacher in his program (Literature)… then he called a few days later to say he received the award of all the GTA teachers in all departments! It’s the first time in 17 years that the English Department took it. So hat’s off! Three bows and curtsy… nice job.
Woody’s girlfriend, Maddie, had her first day at the Burlington Farmer’s Market and sold over 100 bars of her vegan chocolate! She’s moving forward, has quit her day job and is now a full time chocolate maker…. !
So Friday evening is yoga, Saturday is graduation and Sunday is back to yoga… and Tuesday is the day my sister and I move our Mom to her new home. Yikes. But if I stack everything (like the studying I still need to do and the homework) and my mom and and and… then it seems so heavy. But a day at a time, an event at a time, knowing all will work out in the moment…. and the fact that these are all wonderfully positive things (!) then the weight feels less, and I can feel celebratory as opposed to….. stressed. ;)
The mesh crochet wrap I was working on is done, blocked, wrapped, sent and has been received! I didn’t get the pictures I wanted but I do have some….. and started another with a smaller hook and am delighted to see it growing and to see the glorious waterfall of colors melding beautifully together. And wow does this stitch block and grow! It doubled (easy) in length.
Once again, look for new fabrics this week and thanks for all the great feedback, yes, more totes will be included this week.
Time to start another day…. it’s a very pretty Wednesday morning. I feel good and grounded, ready for the next run of busy days…. one moment at a time.
Take good care all, thanks so much for stopping by and let’s all knit on good women! As busy as our lives get, how sweet those moments are when we can pick up our needles……..
5 bags tonight (….. back to homework) thanks all ;)
