Best Knitted Shawls
Who would have thought the best knitted shawls I saw today at 3 Bag FUll were not lace based.
The Stephen West shawl is lots of "wraps and turns" I was told. I can wrap and turn.
The Peddler's Shawl is just so simple it is amazing. I love the brown border on beige. Who would have thought I'd love brown on BEIGE?
Then again, who would have thought
*I'd still be walking as my workout 20 years after I got on my first treadmill?
I prefer to walk outside when the Chicago weather allows. This means I walk April to November outside.....
*I'd prefer cats to dogs at this time in my life. I adore dogs, do not gasp. It is just that I find cats/kittens so much easier to live with right now. I get a lot back from the pride in this house. They have personalities plus. This is another post entirely though....
*I'd be overjoyed with how beautifully the white marigolds I planted as an afterthought, would thrive. They will be a definite on my flowerbed list next year.
*I'd come to a point in my diet where I prefer low fat chicken/turkey sausage to the REAL pork thing. Prefer, is the operative word here, I now prefer them.
*well, you would have thought, but I woudln't have thought that the i pod Santa brought me would bring me so much joy. I love walking and working out to the music I choose.
*finally, who really would have thought that Fireman would INVITE Beatles to sleep with us? Fireman who guards his sleep like no one I know..... yup who would have thought?
(Have you surprised yourself lately?)
