Well I'm amazed that it's Friday again. This has been a doozy of a week, let me tell you. I have very little planned for the weekend except catching up on some rest, getting the house in order, and picking away at a scarf I'm working on. What do you have planned?
Making: this scarf. It's a very easy pattern that brings a very pretty result. Mine won't be purple however, but a combination of rust and burnt orange. Using some of that delicious wool I found at the thrift store. (My good friend Jenny made me that little cozy pictured above. Isn't it cute? And one of my very favorite colors.)
Seeing: images from this blog. I've always carried a fascination with the way people dress, not in the sense of what is in fashion, but more pondering over the small, special items people pick out, and why they wear them. Clothes have stories, just as everything else does.
Smelling: lemon oil. I polished some of our wooden furniture this morning.
Tasting: mandarin oranges.
Hearing: absolutely nothing. I have the house all to myself and I'm enjoying it immeasurably.
Feeling: a bit sore, from all walks I've been taking, but so refreshed from the air and sunshine.
Loving: this t-shirt. I'm trying to resist temptation, but I may need one of these.
Reading: The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier. I've been sucked in.
Praying: for my husband and son. Being thankful for them, for all that we have. For strong coffee, books, togetherness, for bright colors and for hope.
Good day to you all <3
