It's Sunday night and I'm just getting at the computer for the first time this weekend. The weather has been rainy and then sunny. It's lovely weather for the plants. Everything is lush and green with plenty of colorful flowers. Beautiful for walks.
Friday night I came home to a small crisis. Jim was very upset on behalf of Luke who had been insulted by a friend. I don't want to go into details here, but it felt like a slap in the face to our whole family from a boy who is over at our house 3-4 times a week and has dinner with us almost once a week.
Jim felt he couldn't talk to the parents of the boy, so the job fell to me, but I was okay with that. This set of circumstances felt like a teaching moment to me. We had a chance to show Luke that he deserves to be treated with respect, and to demonstrate that with our actions. So the boy's mom is talking to him and we're hoping this will all just blow over. Eventually.
Saturday night, we took my parents out for dinner and had a lovely time. They are not spontaneous people, so it was a special treat to get them to come out on short notice. I was very happy they agreed.
I did manage to finish up my traveling pair of socks. (For the record, I always have a sock in my purse. Now that these are done, I've cast on another pair. It may take a while before you see them here though. Traveling socks get finished slowly/) I've been wearing these anklets all day and I'm in love.
Chalet socks for the toes gave me just the right amount to eek out these little socks. The Regia Silk feels lovely on my feet and I'm thrilled with the little anklet. The yarn was bought as an odd ball at a sale.
And of course the mitten proceeds. One down, one to go.
I feel extremely daring. I'm knitting this one with the stripes going in the other direction. What a rebel I am.
