More About This Website

So I knit. And I think about knitting. I think about those who knit before me. The lore of knitting and the lure of knitting. It is all about how I knit in my life and what knitting means to me.

Friday 40 - Week 10

  1. Sometimes living means leaving. 
  2. Eva Kay is so excited for the first day of school. I love that.
  3. Back to school shopping is fun, even for the boys.
  4. Daytimes with Melanie are funtimes with Melanie.
  5. Back-to-School pedicures with Eva Kay, because nail polish is not allowed.
  6. Pain surfaces when you are stuck in the anger of the past or focused on the fear of the future.
  7. Dinner at the Trencherman. 
  8. Boats and sunshine on the lake.
  9. Finding perfect acorns and pine cones with Eva Kay. 
  10. My place of peacefulness and quiet.
  11. Let me just say: I know that I have an intolerance for laziness. And I am so happy I know this about myself. And who wants to be lazy.
  12. Speaking of lazy, who wants to take short-cuts? They really don't make life any better.
  13. Knitting in the morning when the fog lifts and the day is revealed.
  14. George stopped showing his teeth when he smiles. I wonder if he is trying to tell me something. And I wonder at the growing away.
  15. Manners. Not only can they be fun, they can make you less gross. 
  16. Dishcloths. Hand knit dishcloths. Lots and lots of them. 
  17. Sometimes (most of the time) simple is better.
  18. Sometimes (most of the time) less is more. Except when it comes to hand knit dishcloths.
  19. This is the moment when I wonder where this whole thing is going. I keep asking the questions. And that makes me feel better.
  20. Sometimes the things that are slow and quiet are the most important things.
  21. Some days, nothing remarkable happens.
  22. I appreciate quiet. I don't need music or words or anything else to fill the space because I can actually manage the sounds in my head.
  23. Today is today. It does not predict tomorrow. Even if today is really hard. Just let it be hard. I'm learning to just let it be hard.
  24. New school year. New hopes. New days.
  25. The friends that hold you up are the friends that don't let you down.
  26. Walking to school on the first day. George let me hold his hand for about 30 seconds.
  27. First days of school. Everyone is excited. 
  28. Alexander: I told all my friends I got braces!
  29. Me to George: So, what does it feel like to almost rule the school?
  30. Eva Kay's hair in French braids. Too cute. 
  31. Feeling truly supported. 
  32. Fishing and little girls. It is perfect.
  33. George jumping off of the diving board. 
  34. Sometimes, out of town is the best town.
  35. Fingerprinting. I'm so glad I've never committed a crime. That I know about.
  36. I know what is important. I know what I need. I know what I can do without.
  37. Still binge watching Grey's Anatomy. It is a somewhat perfect escape.
  38. George got all of his school supplies labeled and organized himself. He's killing me with this growing away.
  39. Sometimes you just make it through a day. And that has to be okay. 
  40. Redeeming Love
