Good Morning! It's Friday!
Willow's Week has been busy but normal. I like normal.
Here are Five Things that just made my week happy.
I share these to encourage you to find the joy and good in your life.
Want more? Here's the link to Friday Fave Fives.
1. I bought two sweaters recently at the thrift shop. One was a grey linen/cotton cardigan. The other was this--a crazy pink, coral, grey and white combo. I unraveled both sweaters and reset the twist (that's like getting the wrinkly twists out of the yarn). Then I used the multi-colored yarns to warp my loom. That means all the long strands.
I used the grey yarn to weave the scarf.
I like the result.
The scarf will be displayed in the Ventura County Handweavers and Spinners Guild booth at the county fair in August.
2. More about weaving.
Here is the finished scarf I wove for Son #2.
He says he likes it.
3. My sister-in-law knows what kind of t-shirts I like!
A gift from her this week.
4. This week we met up with long time friends for lunch and coffee. It was great to renew our friendship with them. The Professor and the husband were neighbor and friends from where he was one year old. Yes, that long! I met them in college when the husband was one of the new, young profs in the English department and I took several classes from him. One of the best parts of the day was watching the guys smile and laugh--just like you do with your first friends.
5. It turns out that both the wife and I love reading mysteries. When she got home, she emailed me a LIST of all her favorite mystery writers! I've already been to the library to search for some of them.
Normal activities in a week.
But these are what fill our hearts and minds
and make us thankful.
