Early morning brought a thunderstorm and more windy conditions.
I crocheted six more of the ornaments started yesterday so now have an even dozen. I often give away my crocheted hearts whenever we go out on a Friday, but need something different since we basically go to the same places and see the same people. Will try to package these up with chocolate and maybe a card and have a few on hand just in case I find someone to give one to whenever I'm out and about.
Picked this rock up from the beach the other day.
My husband keeps bringing me a handful of Indian jasmine that he plucks from the neighbors' bushes.
They smell so sweet.
Crocheted a few little flowers to go with them.
Was able to get out for my late afternoon walk to feed the kitties and noticed that the sky was like splotches of watercolor so looked up to take a picture at the same time that a jet just happened to be zooming by leaving contrail in its wake.
My walk isn't very long but I leave just before sunset and by the time I get home it's already dark.
Made a vegan vanilla cake this evening to go with strawberries my husband bought the other day (I've also been eating them on pancakes).
And this is yet another book I finished this past week.
The author is a religious historian and the steps she gives are not a simple to-do list, it's more about a lifetime commitment to broadening our thinking, expanding our hearts, becoming tolerant of differences and cultivating compassion for ourselves and others. I really like that many different religious and spiritual practices are represented in the book.
My New York boy sent pictures of the snow piled up outside two of the doors where he lives. If you were in the path of any storms, I hope all is well. Stay safe.
Sending warm wishes your way,
