Something’s In the Air

DSCF4587Oh the benefits of an early sunset.  We are new here, but there is a lot of harvesting being done all at once ;  we think the air has more particles in it lending to prettier sunsets.  

 I have to tell you that I was up early the other day…as in 0300 briefly…and I saw the sliver of the moon rising and it was gloriously pink.  There was no way I was dragging this body downstairs to get the camera, so you have to trust me, it was brilliant.  Did anyone else see it a few days ago?   Would it also be pink due to the air particulates?  

images.jpegThis is  an idea I’d like to copy.   We have the old front door of our Glenview house.  We saved it when we put the new door on, for just this type of photo frame.  It is sitting in the garage here and I hope that Fireman will work on it soon.   He’s healing well, thank you all, and I ‘d like to keep him busy during this.. week 5 ….of rib healing.   I’m trying to keep him off his bike another week.  The PT told him he could get back on the bike carefully a week ago.  Sigh.  I overrule…

As for knitting goals this week:  I’m switching between a hat, mitt two of another fingerless gift, and the Log Cabin.   It has gotten very cold very quickly and my needles are busy busy busy.  Knitting is in the air!

  1. That sunrise is spectacular! Thanks ever so much for sharing;very welcome on a grey morning. Love your dor/picture frame idea…looks like fun. Enjoy! And have a great day.


  2. The door/picture frame idea is a great one! What a glorious sunset!

    Our air is cold – 10 a.m. and it is only 37 according to my phone. Brrrr.

    Good luck with keeping Fireman calm and quiet. I’ll bet he might feel a bit stir crazy by now….


  3. I love that idea for the door!!! I can’t wait to see what fireman makes out of yours! Glad to hear that he is healing well.

    Happy knitting ……’s gotten chilly here too. I broke down and bought some gloves, but I cast on for a hat last night. I knew I couldn’t get gloves knit quickly enough, but a HAT shouldn’t take much time.


  4. That door is a really great idea! I’m not sure about dust particulates, but when we have the smoke heavy in the air during fire season, the moon, sun, everything in the sky is pink so it could very well be from the dust. Good luck keeping Fireman relatively stable for a few more days. Guys just aren’t very patient patients!
    It’s warmed up here to the 30’s and 40’s this week so it feels somewhat like a heat wave. I’m back to wearing my Portage sweater as a jacket instead of my winter coat. I’m sure that will be an everyday thing soon enough.


  5. I’m glad FM is healing well. Guys are pretty resilient. I love that door frame/hat rack idea! We actually have a narrow French door we removed from our back door that I could use, but not sure we have that expanse of a wall to hang it on!! ((hugs)), Teresa 🙂


  6. What a great way to recycle an old door. The autumn sunset is very pretty. For some reason, the winter sunsets seem the most spectacular. Stay warm and sleep through those early morning hours. Hopefully a week after the time switch, we can all get back to our regular sleeping habits.
