Overviews from the day -- taking notice. The little acorn was knitted up this morning. I love to collect oak acorns in the fall but they're just not that easy to find around here. Knitted ones will suffice though! The pattern is here -- thank you, Suse.
Organic pomegranates from the healthy food store -- so little, we hardly ever see them this small, they're usually huge -- a nice size for drying, too. Every year I lay one on the furnace and by winter's end, it's nicely dried out and ready to be added to an ongoing winter potpourri mix.
Today was our first full day with clear skies in quite a while, it seems. It's still a little soggy outside and sadly, flooding continues in some nearby areas. Yet life goes on. The Maximilian sunflowers, Helianthus maximiliani, are coming on strong and their sunny, healing vibe is most welcome in the house. The stamps are from an estate sale in our neighborhood -- I remembered the woman who lived there was from Europe -- I hope there are some unusual stamps from afar in the mix. I'm leaving them on the coffee table for anyone who wants to sift through them. Another thing I remembered about her was that she fed any kind of wildlife, even pigeons, because she had survived the war and had seen so many animals starve to death. And probably worse. I always liked that she had such a kind heart for birds and animals.
Today is a waxing moonday in the sign of Aquarius. In just a few days, our growing moon will reach fullness once again. About now, it's good to start taking notice and validate the positive in life. Kind people, nice weather, healthy food, clean air and water, yarn to knit and cloth to stitch -- that cup is way more than half full. I just know it.
A beautiful week to you! xx
