So here's my plan:
Finish the cute green granny slippers in adult size.
Knit some fingerless on 1's.
My arms are bit achy from the size 10s after nearly two pair of slippers. I LOVE these slippers though, and will trade off knitting more of them and knitting fingerless.
2 pair does not a pile make.
Yesterday was cold and beautiful here.
Fireman and I went to see the burial sites at the Effigy Mounds Preserve nearby in Whitewater.
I bit ashamed to say that Wickepedia is my go to ...
These Mounds are much much older than I thought.
It was difficult to see the shapes of the mounds from standing level.
I did feel like I was walking very Sacred Steps from long ago, that we dont' find much of in the USA.
I tried to be mindful of the Spirits and people who came long before me and long before Colombus that's for sure.
The oddities were that these Mounds are basically in a subdivision with little to no fanfare or for lack of a better word: respect?
Something this old and this Sacred should be better marked, and I'll look into what I can do personally to make a difference.
I'll finish with how gloriously beautiful this country is.
The leaves are turning, the roads are winding and the sky is full of stars here.
We are really Blessed!
