I walked Moose in the dark dawn mist, coming home dewy damp and steaming warm after trudging in heavy boots, snow pants and coat.
The day spreads out before me ... I hear the drone of the heat pump, the click of the coffee maker, the snores and sighs of the dog. (What burdens his soul? Where do his dreams take him and what adventures require such snorts, yips and twitches?)
I have been in cozy-down mode. Lots of knitting, finishing up holiday gifties and realizing there are more I want to make/send as I love the idea of being a kind of craft-crazy Robin Hood spreading wealth through the postal mail.
|i finished this shawl ... the yarn was purchased pre-Cowgirl for a more complicated pattern but i welcomed simplicity into my life and followed this easy peasy pattern (i could swear i had started this only a few months ago but in the course of finding the pattern i discovered i cast on back in ... april?)|
Possibilities ... possibilities ...
Every day I wake up and feel excitement knowing that I am staying wide open to adventures and growth. Trips are being planned. eek! ... one to New Zealand as a belated 50th wingding celebration of sisterhood; and now a family trip to a cottage somewhere - Devonshire? (ancestral stomping grounds of the Husband) Scotland? (my mother's side of the family) or Ireland? (where we honeymooned 24 1/2 years ago) Wherever we go, Cowgirl has been reassured dragons and fairies are there.
My girl who described herself in her school autobiography as skill, love, fast, happy.
|yes, more knitwear completed ... girl not available to model but her stand-in from school was very cooperative! (pix for their tongue-twister project)|
Lover of dragons
Who fears spiders
Who needs shelter
Who gives friendship
How would my autobiography read? All about Lisa: laughing, loud, eclectic, joy. Lover of love, who fears separation, who needs color & song, who gives all of her self.
Ah, yes ... a True Joy Warrior, Ninja mom with camera.
If this post seems a little jumpy it is probably because I am on a water challenge which means I am constantly stopping to sip water and constantly jumping up to pee!
How's all that for a week? And I've got more brewing for you all next week! ;)
Until then ...
