Because My mom cannot Bless our new house, and because my dear friend Kathryn was in town to visit her dear mom Mary, we got together.
Mary is nearly 90 and amazing.
Mary said she'd be honored to Bless the House.
She blessed the outside first.
She got teary.
Then we came in, albeit very slowly with the help of her snazzy new red wheeled walked, and she kept blessing.
In the kitchen she said,
"May the Bloody Mary's Start at 11!"
Mary is from New York and never lost her accent.
It is awesome.
My friend Kathryn brought us a house warming gift.
She's a vintage head vase! Oh was I thrilled.
I have NO nurse stuff. Only a few ornaments.
I . just. Love. it
There was a tiny bit of knitting last night!
I showed Kath and her mom my present box and let them pick a hand knit.
Kath took the cashmere socks.
Her mom took a shawl I made with alpaca from last years Sheep and Wool festival.
Hooray now I can knit more!
