I'm wondering: if Zach is eating enough in Mexico. His face is thin. (Fireman said I needed to stop feeding him baked goods when he lived at home, but what's a mother for? )
I'm thanking God: that Zach is having a fantastic time in Chiapas.
I'm grateful for: the barnwood and here's the finished headboard. (My pillows look sorry. But we do sleep in our bed it is not just for show!)
I'm seeing: how the corn changes as the fall begins. (this country business is as if I walked through the door in the Wizard of OZ) There is beauty on a vast scape everywhere. )
I'm Comparing the size of Beatles next to Fezzik. 10lb difference. (The neighbors who have come to our door are astounded at his size, we are just used to living with His Giantness) I'm hearing: the leaves in the wind having a big old party as they hang on for a few more weeks before they fall. I'm planning: to make my own tomato soup this week. I've finished: My very own Peruvian alpaca hat. (gift yarn from Abby S. who trekked it back from Peru for my birthday) This was a dream to knit. The yarn was so dang soft. I added some aqua to the neutrals and I like the finish. Note: I used size 1 needles for the ribbed brim. Someone had said you cannot use small enough needles for your brim and by golly they were right. The hat was knit on 4s.
