Return To Center

Still no Yarntini, but something did come in today's mail: Sock Innovation by Cookie A and Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn by Carol J. Sulcoski. Going to pick up YS from school, then plan to settle down with a nice cup of coffee and browse through these this afternoon. The HWWTM is out of town for a few days, so things are a little more laid back around here, i.e. I don't usually cook when he's not home. ha

Isn't this scarf coming along great? I'm gradually increasing the number of rows of gray, while decreasing the maroon. The other end of the scarf will be all gray. I borrowed this idea from Janice over at Willow Way Knitting. Thanks, Janice. It does eat up a lot of yarn though because it's done in the round, but it is going to be nice and thick and super warm. I hope to finish it in the next couple of days.

I'm almost finished with my Rogue Roses socks; I'm on the last repeat and then have to decrease the toe. Will post pics later this week.

The yard work continues...the HWWTM and I went to the nursery yesterday and bought some plants and flowers. All of the pots are being filled as I type this.

Remember this little area right outside the side door that was dug up and cleaned out last week. It's been completely replanted. Isn't it nice?

The weather here has been crazy, as is the norm in southeast Louisiana. This past weekend it was in the 80's and humid. Today it's in the 50's with 20-30 mph winds blowing, and tonight we're expecting a freeze. FPS. As soon as the plants are all in their pots, they'll be brought into the garage for a couple of nights until the weather decides to cooperate again.

Almost forgot - started my Monday off with my usual yoga class. Today's saying. . . "let's return to center". Usually when stretching at the beginning and end of class, you do a pose, then the instructor tells you to "return to center". When you think about it, it's a pretty neat saying. You could use it when you get into it with your kids or husband or boss or friends. After it's all over with, you can "return to center", and things can get back to normal. Sounds like an excellent idea, don't you think?
