Monday Musings

I give you more flowers from last week's botanic gardens walk. I also give you the unfinished Life Is Good Shawl in the 10 year old yarn. I could hunker down and finish it today.... but I'd rather cast on a new one in beautiful mixed berry colored Lorna's laces yarn. I cannot give you the baby hat I worked on the past few days as I've dropped a stitch and it was naughty and ran way down the hat....
It was heavenly to only work one night this weekend. Fireman's birthday was good. I was inspired by another TED talk yesterday. Do you Ted Talk? I sure do. This one was by Doris Joyce Kearwin (Gosh I have spelled her name wrong but I m in a hurry and will correct it later.) She is a presidential historian and a wonderful speaker. If you want a great 20 minute listen this morning...google it under TEd Talks. '
Very sad kitten foster news but more on that later. We lost one yesterday and another is so sickly. Hard stuff to watch. But some survive and we must keep trying.
more later.....what's up with you?

Beautiful colors in that shawl.

Sorry about the fosters. Life has its own ebb and flow, doesn't it? I so admire you for being able to give so freely, even when it hurts.

I also dropped mega stitches on Easy-Peasy over the weekend. Was it Supermoon?

So sorry about the kitties. Give them lots of love while they are with us!!

Someone sent me The Beauty of Pollination from Ted Talks last week. It was my first encounter with Ted. I look forward to more.

Aww poor kitties! It's frustrating that all that could be remedied with neutering and spaying.

This week, may:
• your stitches not drop
• your knitting be fun
• your work schedule be flexible
• you get some rest and relaxation time

Take heart and be strong about those darling kitties. If it were not for people like you I would not be so blessed by my feline sisters that I adpoted in Dec. 2011. They were living by deserted railroad tracks.....

Thanks for all you do! Kathy

Very pretty shawl. Hope the little sick kitty is some better now. DKG writes very interesting books! Our woodland heather (bluebells) is blooming now, too; they'd take over here if they could!
