So perhaps there were people who would like to hear about feelings, but I did not think they were people I would want to know.Helen DeWitt, The English Understand Wool
Those words made me laugh out loud because people who like to hear about feelings (and puppies, and little boys, and knitting, and reading, and life here in suburban Atlanta) are precisely the people I would want to know!
and wow, November. We went from full-on fall to Christmas, wrapping up baseball, getting back to the park for walks, celebrating birthdays and Thanksgiving (and being together as a family for the first time in years) and the end of the hazy early puppy days. I’m not wishing away that time, but y’all know I’m ever so grateful it’s behind me(us)!
November also saw me getting back to knitting. I actually finished a sweater for myself (ravelry link if you want a sneak peek) and one for Lucy (that you already saw). Of course Lucy – and a host of other activities (ahem, cooking! walks in the park!) – kept me from doing too much without taking breaks … was there really a time just a few months back when I could sit and knit for hours?! The sweater I knit for myself isn’t a secret, and I hope to share it with y’all “officially” soon.
When I compiled the grid this morning, I was surprised that I’d actually shared all the good stories here already, except this one:
Holly always loved (December 18, for example) to curl up under the tree and it warms my heart something fierce that Lucy loves it, too. (and maybe by next Christmas I can put books under the tree again … or ornaments on those lower branches?!)
I can’t even think of anything else to add to my Happy List. How about you? what made your Happy List last month?
