These are my colors for my sweater. The majority of the sweater is in the greens. I’m going to add a bit of purple for pop, but just a bit.
Proof I made a gauge swatch and made gauge, although I’m pushing back little worries anyhow about that…
This is also proof I need a manicure. All that painting in January did its thing.
So I’ve managed the provisional cast on and I’m liking the knit portion. Very much.
This is EON paint color on the walls in the library/cubby interesting room. Thought you deserved a photo after all my goings on about the painting.
A beauty of a fox ran through the property yesterday mid day. He went to the shrubbery at the edge of the woods and looked back at us for a short bit. I was not quick enough to get a photo.
I love keeping this blog upbeat and fun. But, The reality of yesterday was difficult when we visited my dear mom. I brought her McDonald’s(her favorite thing) , and she was completely uninterested in eating. I smile and smile at her loving face while the tears just won’t stop coming. This illness that has robbed her mind is a tough one. You all know that. Please, if you are a praying person, say one for this sweet wonderful woman. I cried the whole ride home and then some. Thank Goodness for Fireman who drives so I can lose it on the way back.
Mom said hi to Fireman straight away. She asked me who I was. I tell her I’m Kath, your favorite. Then she searches my face….I pray that there are angels all around her. I pray she just sleeps as much as she can. She is simply bones. Truly this woman was the kindest, most giving mother one could ask for. She would do anything for me and she did.
Once when I was in a depression, she called me and said she was going to Target. She wanted me to come along to get out of the house. I was nearly 50 and there she was mothering me. Praying for me. Hugging me. Walking me around Target…just because. Okay now I’m crying again. ….
Sorry!!! It is ok. I can smile too. I am incredibly lucky to have had her show me such love my whole life. So send her a good thought, or prayer or wish on a star or whatever you do when someone like me asks….ok?
