There’s been entirely too much time since the last post! Ah, me. September was a time of getting back to ‘normal’, after a kidney summer and the Scotland trip with this year’s 10 year old kidney. Unpacking, catching up, sorting through photographs. Then, not too long after I returned our Slovakian son Dan came for a visit. He was an AFSer in the mid 90s. A couple of days afte Dan flew home, the Arizonz kidneys arrived for a week of fun. Their cousins came up for a weekend, which we packed with as much fun as possible.
Making brownies and a visit to a dairy.
Family time is precious. The boy got to show off his stormtrooper costume we made for him
and on their last night here we enjoyed a meal together at my favorite gluten free restaurant, Burton’s Grill.
My knitting projects have gotten less than the usual attention since I’m having some RSI issues, but I am working on socks a bit.
I had the guts to throw out a sweater project that just wasn’t coming together. It was a brave act and I did feel badly for a day or two, but what a relief it is to not have to struggle to make it right.
I’m starting quilts for the kidneys when they’re here.
And I’m working the Pay-It-Forward projects. I can’t show photos of those as they are surprises!. My new project is ‘365’-a photo of my garden every day made into a rememberance book for when we no longer live here.
I’ve been posting more in Instagram (the link is to the right), and decorating.
Now that the holidays are upon us, I am busy writing for my free course “December EnLIGHTenment. It gives me such pleasure to gift this to students and friends. If you need some joy and magic this season, let me know and I’ll put you on the list.
Blessings to all.
