Thank you to everyone who gave me a warm welcome home. You are such good friends; your well wishes always make my day. Being home again is an interesting experience, considering this has only been "home" for a little over a year now. What a feeling of "home" though. Oddly enough, knowing this place as home helped me feel more relaxed and happy visiting Los Angeles. The traffic jams did not annoy me in the least (and I drove in much traffic); the heat didn't get me down (in fact, it was cooler in LA than it was on the...

Forgive the messes and inconveniences

My Valentine's Day was beautiful, how about yours? One year ago, on Valentine's evening, I sat in a Thai restaurant in Los Angeles having dinner with my sister. I told her about this guy in New York who had emailed me. He was interesting, we had all kinds of things in common ... and he lived on a farm but wasn't a farmer. I told her it was too bad he lived in upstate western New York, because there was no way in the world I would ever even consider moving to New York ... for anything, period. And here...

Last evening after dinner it rained here for hours. For me, this is autumn ... or the beginnings of it. If the weather in Los Angeles became cool with rain, it would be autumn. For my husband, it is still summer. Perhaps next year I will have learned new seasonal sensors but for now it is too soon to change. Autumn is my favorite time of year, so I am in good shape and enjoying the weather quite well. The lighting here is different too. Golden hour lasts much longer, and morning has a golden hour all its own that...

Finished knitting the baby hat

On the drive down to the Pig Roast Friday I completed the little knitted baby hat for Caps to the Capital. I have so much yarn left (of course) that I'll be able to make several more hats to send along. I will mail half of the left over yarn to my daughter and she will crochet several baby hats for the campaign. My husband helped start a local Habitat for Humanity chapter in the county where our farm is about twelve years ago. This area of the country has been experiencing an economical and population decline for quite some...

As I knit ...

As I knit the tiny baby hat for the Caps to the Capital campaign, I consider the fact that perhaps a one-day premmie baby out there in the wide world, somewhere, will live because she (or he) had this little cap to keep her head warm. Quite an opportunity I have in this wee little bit of yarn and stitches to possibly make a difference in my own little way somewhere in our world. I catch myself saying a little prayer for that child as I knit, like those nuns who knit prayer shawls and use knitting as a means...
