Regina came to visit me yesterday! Isn’t her hospice shawl donation lovely? It is not one bit scratchy. I french braided her hair. As soon as she got here, I asked if I could. She was thrilled. I think her husband thought it was kinda odd. We were like lil school girls all happy making her braid! ! She is beautiful.
She brought a bounty of gifts. Fresh parsley and mint. A new perennial from her garden in an adorable pumpkin vase!! 3 Books on Flowers and gardening, and an apple crisp. There was more, I just can’t think of it right now. She is so happy to give things away!! As a giver myself, I felt kind of like a taker!!!! Hard role for me !
Oh and Karen sent me the coolest stitch row counters I’ve ever seen. One has a horse on it!!! You move the row each time you finish a row and you don’t need a pen or paper or to remember to click a thingy dingy.
I took her to see the goat farm nearby , just because. I showed her and her husband two hiking trails that they would like and didn’t know about AND I took them to the pretty cemetary where you are high up and can see the lake:
We get excited about many of the same things. Regina and Pat have prayed so hard for my father and I to reconnect. And we have. They go to the same church. When I couldn’t go to my mom’s funeral, Regina went and took notes and gave me the program and the funeral card. She’s amazing.
We pray in earnest for each others growns. Her grown have had hard hands dealt them. Mine need some prayers too. Who doesnt?
So I’m deciding on my next knit:
I am finishing another flower today.
I have some bulky and super bulky to knit up. I found a hat that doesnt really need you to go to double points in the end… I may go right for that one. But bulky could really hurt the hands right now……
My stash is low. BUT Jean at the barn is bringing me more wool scraps for flowers tomorrow. So that’s going to be fun.
