Bandwagon, jump, etc.
• New dishcloth, as our old ones are kind of scuzzy these days. Easy moss stitch border with a basketweave patten inner.
• Clue number two of the mystery socks was released today. This evening saw two rounds of the pattern completed and looking good.
• Sitting by the fire in the evenings, me knitting, Mr Soup and the children reading.
• Reading in bed before sleep. Current book is Tuesdays with Morrie which I am finding overly sentimental and not terribly well written. I'll probably get lynched for that - I know it was a huuuge bestseller.
• Picking up The Lady Elizabeth by Alison Weir at the library tonight on my way home from work. Loved her first novel Innocent Traitor so have high hopes for this one. At least you know the historical research will be spot on when it's a novel written by an eminent historian.
• Son #3's recent obsession with the idea of having a pet squirrel (never mind that there are no squirrels in Australia, this will not deter him). He makes me giggle.
• The view from our windows, especially the last two mornings. Today I didn't have time for breakfast before leaving for school drop off and work because the minute I got up I simply had to grab my camera and spend 15 minutes photographing first the view and then a kookaburra.
• Birds in the birdfeeder every day. Rosellas one day, cockies the next. This morning a kookaburra was hanging around hoping for tidbits of sausage that we keep in the freezer but refusing to pose photogenically.
• Spring flowers. The cistus is blooming and two bearded iris are waving their frilly heads about. My two red single climbing roses are covered with buds.
• Ishbel. First four rows of the lace pattern complete.
• Haven't seen the baby magpie for a few days. Hope he's ok.
• Huge clean up still to do in preparation for bushfire season.
• Bushfire season.
• Stupid long days at work.
• Ongoing worry and distraction while Son #1 is away.
• Son #3's inevitable disappointment on Christmas morning when he realises he will not be getting a pet squirrel.
