things making me happy today

green 'fetchings'

Another pair of ‘fetchings’ from Knitty. Heading across the seas this week.

Meeting up with two wonderful bloggers for tea, cake and conversation around a kitchen table.

Sunshine and warmth this morning.

A walk with Mr Soup down the steep cliff of our property in the late afternoon. Exploring, planning, dreaming.

Listening to Hornblower on audio tape in the car.

Blooms on Fair Bianca.

Watching Son #1 busk at two markets over the weekend.

Hubby is a big fan of Hornblower. He reads and rereads the books like I do Jane Austen's. It amuses me that we both have a love of literature set in the same era, but mine's girly and his is swashbuckling. We do swap from time to time too :)

Your "happys" make me happy too.

It would be wonderful to watch and listen to your son while playing to an audience. Good on him!

As to Hornblower; I don't know whether it was a good or bad thing to watch some of the shows on ABC TV (with that Ian Grufford - I know that's not the right spelling). Because now I want to watch the whole series - without reading the books first!

Every time you post a shot of your wrist warmers I notice what nice hands you have! Just thought I'd share that.

I made my fetchings out of the same yarn too--love them!

Beautiful wristwarmers.

I love the shot of the back of your son's head! That could have been my son a few years ago, same haircut, same shape of head.
Now he's got teenaged shaggy hair (but still a lovely shaped head)
The things that move me about our beautiful kids!

i haven't a clue what a "fetching" is, but it's really cute and would make a lovely sweater.

Sweet!
That boy's hair is even involved in the swing of things - love that!
And you do have lovely hands.
The happy days of early summer!

Suse said...

'Fetchings' is the name of the pattern from Knitty

His hair was very windblown, hence the bits all over the place. Also note the pegs holding his music down - it was quite windy!

Telfair beat me to it with the hands comment.

Those fingernails, they would make me happy at present.

I cannot my son to allow me to take a picture of him playing his violin -- actually I can't get him to allow me to take a picture of him at all. Love that picture.
