Back home again

Mexico is a fantastic place to relax and regenerate. The sights, sounds, smells and gastronomic delights soothe you into believing that this is reality. Of course, it's not - for me, at least, but for a short week it was nice to take a step outside normal life and experience something totally removed from my routine. (for my pictures, check facebook)

So...3 books and one pair of socks later, I left Cabo San Lucas a little browner and feeling like I have enough Vitamin D stored up to last till we start getting our own rays here in the dreary northland.

Having forgotten to take a picture of the socks ON the beach like I had intended, I created a pseudo-beach for our dining room table centerpiece and that will have to suffice. The yarn I chose from my stash before leaving turned out to be the perfect colourway for beach knitting. (Drops Fabel - colorway 910) There's a little sun, a little sand and lots of water symbolized in the colours. These will go to a woman at church who's going through some parenting struggles with a wayward teen. From one mom to another - a little love and lots of prayers.

Book reviews to follow once I've figured out how to get back to normal.

Love the socks and the symbolism of the colors. Your friend will definitely feel the love and prayers that went into every stitch.

Oooooh, I long for the sun to warm the snow-covered land. I keep telling myself that it won't be much longer. ;oD

Glad you are back safe and sound. I should have ordered some sunshine in a bottle ...
