:: this week my eldest son turned 29
:: he called breathless "i was on a paddleboard two miles off the coast, we were surrounded by at least twenty migrating blue whales!"
:: my youngest girl called " i got a job!"
:: my youngest boy called also "i got in! "(the school he was hoping for)
:: my middle son sent to me in the mail a letter and an apple gift card! he said have fun!
:: my oldest child made a commercial for lexus
:: my husband was offered a job as editor of a (big) magazine (he had to turn it down though)
:: my sister heard my mom sing the words to a james taylor song
i felt immense joy and pleasure at all these things
(* so i won't ever forget)
took a hike
visited a gallery where my friend has a showing
spent four days with my dear friends here from germany
went on a date with my husband
showed a friend how to knit cables and she gave me some of her handmade beeswax candles
and then, after work, i started working on these...
i am going to call them green sleeves. the embroidered patch is my own design, the knitted pattern is found here. instead of wasteful paper cardboard sleeves, i hope others will want to try these reusable cozies. they keep your tea or coffee warm and keep your hand comfortable. because a comfortable hand is important indeed!
little friends approve of the soft wool
and now for the winner of the give~a~way
nice to have helpers
