Count your many blessings

Today is a GOOD day. Shall I count the ways?
1. Right now I am totally alone in the house. I love my family, but sometimes it's nice to be alone too.

2. My son and I got a lot of cleaning up done today. The light is still not visible at the end of the tunnel, but I feel like we've made some headway.

3. I'm humless for the moment (that makes being home that much more special).

4. Supper is simmering on the stove.

5. The sun is shining in the window.

6. I'm drinking a great fruit kefir smoothie.
My knitting mojo has been hibernating lately. There are too many balls being juggled and knitting has sifted to the bottom of the priority pile. A little gets done each day, but that doesn't translate into many finished projects. A cool item I finished about a month ago is a biscuit blanket (it's like a giant dishcloth to keep biscuits/buns warm in). You just have to love that name! And when a friend gave me a kit to make one, I was so happy. Now I have the pattern and can make more. The cotton yarn was sooo wonderful to work with. It has me spoiled and I won't want to go back to the cheap dishcloth cotton.

Nice biscuit blanket! What type of cotton yarn was it?

Glad you had a great day at home -- humless, to boot!

Dan says the humming must be from one of your family members and you might need to be home alone more often! =)

Sounds like a blissful moment...glad you got to have one.
I love the biscuit blanket, it looks beautiful...adds to the whole good feeling of your story...what better thing to add to the day but warm biscuits wrapped in a cozy blanket!

The cotton is Firefly's Country Cotton. Can't get it locally, but she will ship to Canada. Too bad shipping is so costly.
