I just have to say I am missing all of you. I feel like I have left for an isolated vacation, (one I probably really need in real life) and I am missing our chats over the backyard fence or over a cup of tea. How are you? How is your family? Any news?
I thought I would pop in for a quick hello. Finding time to do my mindfulness course remains an issue. I know, then why are you on your blog Meredith? I can pop out a quick post while Little Buddy is up and about and must save the course for naptime. I am on week four so hopefully I can take what I can use and store away the rest of the information for when I have a quieter time in my life. As for this week I had a special appointment with Little B on Monday, a new baby to evaluate on Wednesday, writing up that evaluation and then a bout with the flu/ norovirus/ food poisoning or something like that. My poor husband had to attend a meeting at school for Little B instead of me as I was flat on my back in bed Friday. I told him to smile and nod at all the teachers and therapists, they know what they are doing, and have our little ones best interest at heart.
As for Little B, this is almost direct quote from his report. When asked a question he does not want to answer ( Little Buddy ) will say, "my voice box is not working" and then place his hand over his mouth. Made you smile didn't I?
My latest shawl is finished. Do you remember when I recently purchased the yarn above? Well it made a beautiful shawl. I had the sudden urge to crochet another South Bay Shawlette with this yarn. I had already started when I found out a dear friend has breast cancer. I knew then that this was for her. She is struggling as we all would be but there is great hope that it can be contained with another surgery and radiation treatments. I have been through those so I know this is not and easy road. I hope to be there for her as much as I can and wrap her in my love with this shawl.
Made with Queensland Collection, Sunshine Coast yarn, two skeins totaling 580 yards, and a size I hook. I plan to give it to her very soon, I hope it helps.
Okay I am out of here. As for Earth Day Yesterday, I hope you all at least thought about the Earth and what a precarious position it is in these days. If you want to read the damage that has been done to our Earth and the environment already by our current president this article by the Huffington Post says it all much better than I could. We are on a dangerous path in so many ways my friends.
