Today as I was munching on a fabulous salad with some fresh butterhead lettuce from my garden and listening to the soothing sounds of Cherish the Ladies while my stove was steaming with newly dyed yarn, I had a moment……a moment of feeling incredibly fortunate and thankful.
The days have been pretty rainy here, but I have been content to meander out to the garden after I have tended to the dogs early in the morning with my umbrella and clogs to make sure that everything out there has been ok.
From there it’s up to the barn to feed Daisy Jane and Beeatrice and to look at the progress Ken has been making on my studio. Yes………it’s finally going to become a reality, but I will save that for another post.
After the animal and garden duties are finished it’s time for a cup of coffee, morning news and some knitting.
Most recently I have been plugging away on my Kuekenhof Soks done with my Bambino yarn. Up until now I have only knit mitts with this yarn, but I really really love how it works up in a sock. Perfect for spring, summer and autumn.
After the morning news program, I put my knitting away and get to work. The dye pots are fired up along with my computer. While I work at creating pedigrees for registered Cavaliers, I stir the pots and let the dogs in and out, all the time listening to the soft folk/celtic music that I love.
Yes…….I am incredibly fortunate that I get to do the things that I love most.
