This weekend ( over the feast of St. Francis of Assisi)
Zach came downstairs and found Pie and Beatles sitting in the front window together.
The screen had been pushed out and the cats could very easily have taken off.
We live on a very busy main road in town.
Beatles, I am sure, chose to stay in the house.
Pie, because she cannot really see, didn't know the window screen had come loose. I know her spunk and spirit would have drawn her right outside if she could see. Thank you Zach for noticing.
Thank you Bea for not leaving out the window and "showing" her the way. I am actually thankful Pie is blind or she would have left for certain. Both of the cats are microchipped, but after seeing the opossum flattened in the street the next day,
I am even more very grateful that both cat and kitten stayed in.
That's my first little miracle.
The second is this:
I realized this morning I have memorized how to knit socks.
I don't need a pattern anymore.
The final step was understanding the heel turn.
Up until now I just read the pattern at the heel turn and paid very close attention to my stitches.
Today I realized, its always half the stitches plus one
then work your decrease,
then purl to the same number left on the other side and do
I can knit socks anywhere now, with no pattern, no reference needed on a computer or in a book!
This gives me hope. Perhaps I will learn to do a reverse shape afterall, (someday...)
now THAT will be a miracle in my book!
