The Quiet Before The Storm

I’m feeling the quiet and I must admit I like it. Seeing a lot of the kids and grandkids and I like that too.

But the new great grand daughter is due on 11/29. Will she be early. How should we handle Thanksgiving? Then comes the storm. And we are resting up for it. Can’t wait to hold this child in my arms. Already I’m smiling. A real bundle of joy! I have finished knitting her things, at least for now.

Waiting for my grandson and his wife to find out if they are having a boy or girl and their colors, and already I’m looking around for things to knit for this new baby. It’s so exciting.

Right now I’m knitting for me, and I want to get back to writing. Probably work on my memoirs. I’m going to do it in stages, and in anecdotes and actual stories that will stand on their own.

Be happy, do your thing and enjoy every day. No one knows what tomorrow brings. Make some magical memories and store them away for a rainy day.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene

Looking Forward to Weekend

I’m looking forward to the week-end, but don’t know why. I’m always doing something. I can’t pass a bookstore with going in to buy something. And I just discovered I can’t go into a knitting store without buying something..

I had to go to the yarn store today. I make a mistake in my knitting, and I wasn’t sure how to fix it..of course I had to take out four rows, one stitch at a time. (129 stitches to a row) That took a while..

Yesterday I met my writing friend. I was a little bit early and I was already in the bookstore where we were meeting, so I wandered around. It’s not like I wasn’t in the bookstore already once this week. I ended up buying three books. I think it’s time for me to start going to the library.

As for the knitting, I’m loving it. I’m making a blanket for my future new great granddaughter, who is due on November 29th. And I’m making a baby sweater. I already made one, but I made it for a newborn, this sweater will be for a year old child.

It’s so exciting. Four generations of women. My husband says we need lots of pictures of that. Okay with me.

Makes me feel young. I love it.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
