Happy Friday! And Happy Friday Fave Fives. Here is Willow's Week in five short bits of thankfulness. And so we finish April.
2. After finishing six hats, I decided to pull out a new project. Several years ago, I spun some fiber I bought on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. I knitted a sweater -- nearly finished it. But it just wasn't right. It didn't fit. So I abandoned it. My niece lives now just north of where I bought the wool. So this week I began knitting her a shawl to wear during those cold, damp months when this wool fiber will be warm and welcome. I love a new project!
3. Watching the 1965 production of The Agony and the Ecstasy. Having been to Rome and the Sistine Chapel, I am enjoying this story of the painting of the Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo.
4. Again this year, I planted milkweed plants in the garden. The ones I put in last spring didn't survive the hungry caterpillars, the larvae of the monarch butterflies. So I'm trying again. This week I planted three more. Here's hoping these thrive.
5. This spring I have been studying The Lord's Prayer in my Friday morning Bible Study. Do you know the Lord's Prayer? Do you identify with praying it? I've been reminded that my allegiance is for God and I recognize my dependence on Him.
