After my normal quiet time in bed in the morning routine and breakfast, I am wandering outside right away and knitting (or whatever, but usually knitting right now). Today it was for closer to an hour and a half. Then I'm heading back inside for the quick pickup and whatever needs to be done housewise (of no more than fifteen minutes or so usually) and my thirty minutes of no impact aerobics, plus whatever the rest of the day calls me to do, which I'll talk about later. My phone reminds me to get up and move after about an hour and I use those ten minute increments to do any house stuff remaining. And I can exercise after I'm dressed for the day because it's Colorado and I don't sweat and I shower in the evening.
Today, as most days, things are mainly quiet then, with some murmurs here and there. Behind the tree lined fence to the right my neighbor was watering plants while talking with her grand daughter, sister was watering and being one with the lawn and garden, and the dogs were, mainly quietly, sharing their opinions on whatever animal they happened to see.
Hearbreakingly, said view also includes the empty tree, which apparantly developed full out fire blight between last fall and now.
|You can see the finished fence on the other side of ours. Their yard is obviously much lower and our neighbors sit on the balcony on the second floor so you can understand their fishbowl feeling.|
|Not the best outdoor photo but you can see the shawl progressing past the half way point. It will have to be blocked out in order for the lace to really show. Have to have a Friday finish post.|
|While this yarn does not look exactly like the picture on this post, the recipient loves the yarn and especially the little patches of blue.|
