looking forward to . . .
Eucalyptus is everywhere all of a sudden, I guess it's considered a holiday green? This huge bunch was only $5.99 -- to be enjoyed in the vase with eyes for a time and then in the dye-pot.
The green sweater has been blocked once, and again a second time in certain areas that still curled. Shaving it is like mowing a green lawn. I haven't tried it on since before I started all this blocking, it takes days to dry. It's too wide, I already know. And a little short, I know that, too. But it'll be just fine because it has to be.
I just finished reading Fifth Business by Robertson Davies and loved it, I missed this one in the 70's. It's part of a trilogy so there's the other two to look forward to now. I don't read for pleasure as much as I used to but more than once, I've caught myself reading a book I'd already read. Thus a book list was begun a few years ago -- kept in the same journal that holds favorite quotes and phrases. Maybe I'll add my book list to the sidebar here, I know I always like seeing what other people are reading.
Clothwise, I'm thinking of stitching houses with eyes like on the book cover. Another wonderful thing to look forward to.
I've just removed my happy weekending line. Because I've just learned about the darkest of dark journeys that so many families suddenly find themselves on today. Numbing. Love and peace to us all.
