change of pace

We took a little trip to the frog big deal...just a fit thing.
I really liked the pattern, but the sock was way too snug and I didn't want to fuss with adjustments.
Now I'm knitting another pair of Regan socks.
So far, so good. And fuss free!
I'm a happy camper!

I had a good weekend, I hope you did, too!
No travel for me, except for around homebase.
If you went somewhere fun, I'd love to hear about it!

 I cleaned house, and organized various cupboards and drawers.
I gardened (the local nursery had its annuals on sale!).
I test-painted new colors for the trim and front door of the house (too fun!!).
I knit.
I breakfasted with a dear friend.
I skyped.

I'm rested and ready for the week.
Happy Monday!

garden of kindness

Kind hearts are the gardens, Kind thoughts are the roots,
Kind words are the flowers,

 Kind deeds are the fruits,
Take care of your garden and keep out the weeds,

Fill it with sunshine,
kind words and kind deeds.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

a summer palette

Beauty seen is never lost,
God's colors all are fast.

past present

We must always change,
renew, rejuvenate ourselves;
otherwise we harden.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

flight of time

That we find a crystal or a poppy beautiful means that we are less alone,
that we are more deeply inserted into existence
than the course of a single life would lead us to believe.
~John Berger  

Time is zipping by. July 4th has come and gone. Summer has settled in fast and hot.
I actually finished one sock last night...and that little sock has been on the needles for a very long time. Hopefully I will carve out some time to photograph it this week...and to get its mate cast on!

I spent a lovely Saturday morning having brunch followed by a photoshoot at the beautiful home and garden sanctuary of friends of my sisters. The poppy and iris images are just a sampling of the gorgeousness of their garden.

I hope you all are doing well.
All is well here...just settling into some new routines, tending to our own little garden, and watching time fly by.

Wishing you a great week! xo
