Introducing my new little PAL.
Born on Monday evening.
We drove out to Phoenix Thursday afternoon and immediately ran upstairs to see her and hold her. Oh, she is adorable! Everything else about our week dims into insignificance.
However, in accordance with finding five faves in my week, I will add four more...
2. Music. On my way to work, I get a little bored in the car. My brain tends to subconsciously move to singing. I never know what song is going to pop up. This week it was How Great Thou Art. I felt like I was channeling George Beverly Shea. Surprised that I remembered all the words to at least two verses, I sang all the way to work.
3. More songs. Saturday and Sunday, I spent many hours demonstrating my spinning craft at Reyes Adobe Days in Agoura Hills. Across the courtyard under the grape vines, the fiddler was singing and fiddling. One favorite of the audiences gathered around was The Streets of Laredo. Okay, I used to sing that song when I was a kid. But I just realized that I originally learned the lyrics from The Smothers Brothers. I never knew these weren't the real words.
I can see by your outfit that you are a cowboy;
You can see by my outfit that I'm a cowboy, too;
You can see by our outfits that we are both cowboys;
So get yourself an outfit,
And be a cowboy, too.
So now this song is alternating in my brain with the much more lofty hymn in #2. Thanks to my posting these lyrics, you can join me in the endless Smothers Brothers Streets of Laredo song loop. You're welcome.
4. Whenever I can, I offer my hand knitted hats for sale. This weekend exceeded my expectations. I sold all but ten hats! Generate Hope is going to get a substantial donation.
5. More PAL LOVE
Enjoy your weekend!
