This Moment

:: This Moment ::

A friday ritual. A single photo - no words -capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor, and remember.

Works of Art Thursday

:: Works of Art Thursday ::

A little no stress art appreciation on Thursday Mornings. Feel free to leave your thoughts.

This Week: 

Cape Cod Morning 

Edward Hooper

New Realism 


My thoughts: 

For whatever reason I was drawn to this picture this week. It reminds me of my grandparent's home because they had a bay window in a house similar to this one.  The woman looks like she is waiting for someone to visit or return home. I love how the sun is warming her face as she starts her day.

Yarn Along

:: Yarn Along :: 

Joining Ginny of Small Things

This week is entitled "She made very little knitting progress". I did finish another section of my blanket and it is shaping up to be a long project but the pattern in easy and I like the big knitting needles. I keep reminding myself that it will be be super cute once finished. I am about half way done my Indian Summer Shawl but I didn't really work on it this week. It is also an easy knit and I recommend it. But alas, for some strange reason I got it into my head this weekend to knit a pair of legwarmers. Do I need legwarmers right now? No. But I do love them. I started work on Some Cloudy Day Legwarmers. I taught myself about the magic loop methods and realized that when starting a new pattern do NOT try and watch a movie too. Tiny Owl Knits is awesome. I love everything she has designed. All the knitting patterns are Alice in Wonderland meets pastoral beauty. Love. Love. Love. 

Oh, and did I mention that my oldest gal wants a sweater. So, I think I will have to put that in the queue  until later. All I really wanted to do this past weekend was curl up and knit but spring cleaning and warm weather called my name. I am a sucker for sunny warm days. My oldest gal also wants me to teach her to knit but she will only be four years old in April. Any recommendations? 

Still reading, The Weird Sisters. I like the book even though they family is dealing with their mother who battles cancer. It does depict how families deal with illness and life. I also love all the Shakespeare entwined in the story. I am still reading my Taproot too. I like to savor each article and think on it. 

Happy Knitting!

Weekend in Review

Our Weekend was spent doing little chores around the house but also enjoying the beautiful outdoors. The temps were near 80! 

* Friday night pizza and movie with an exhausted mama and daddy almost asleep 
* early bedtimes for all!
* Lazy Saturday morning with bacon and eggs 
* errands with a stop at our favorite secret park for playing, flower picking, and fairy house building
* quiet afternoon of sewing a special apron for a bride to be
* sandbox time! 
* late late dinner and even later bedtime
* Movie Night with hubby: A Time to Kill (we have seen it about 3 times now) 
* 4am phone call from hubby's work ( it is the nature of his job and my least favorite thing in the world)
* early Sunday morning routines
* brunch 
* changing out winter and spring clothes ( only to realize I still need clothes for the ladies) 
* Corned Beef and Cabbage, Irish Soda Bread, and St. Brendan's:) 
* Preparing home school for this upcoming week 
* finally working on Apothecary Circle stuff and starting my Holistic Life Coach Course (I am training to become a Holistic Life Coach) 

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and blessed Monday:)
