Yesterday I had a really great day. It was full of surprises and fun.
John is still suffering from his man cold. I wanted him to get some sleep (and to get the heck away from a pouty man with the same cold I have), so I packed up the kids and went to visit my cousin. I figured the kids could jump on her couches (she encourages this) and I could talk to her for a little bit.
The most incredible thing happened. The kids were entertained for 2 hours. Really entertained. They played. They watched train videos on YouTube. I was able to sit and knit and chat with my cousin. The kids are getting so big! I hate how fast they are growing, but I do like that it is possible to go somewhere and actually enjoy myself.
Not only did I get to relax, she let me raid her stash for slipper yarn. I’ve worn through my French Press Slippers and need to make a new pair. I’m going to make Women’s Felted Slippers, which I saw on another blog (Marilee? Alissa?). She only had single skeins, but I’m going to make it work. She also gave me some fabric clips that I’m excited to try when sewing as well as when seaming knits.
When I got home I discovered the cutest fox enamel pin from Bonny in the mail. It is adorable. I love foxes. John and I got married in a park, and at the end of the ceremony a fox walked by. I quickly added the pin to my collection. I am so thankful to have made such a good friend through blogging. This community is so great.
I had such a great day yesterday. It was like I went yarn shopping, but instead had a relaxing day with family and a note and present from a friend to brighten my day. I am so thankful for the life I get to lead.
