I'm taking a late afternoon break. Having just run the youngest girl to & from music lessons.
Paint spattered jeans.... neck sore from the odd position required to paint baseboards & trim.
Hot black coffee sitting in front of me. (courtesy of the big girl, who knows her mama oh so well)
We made an appointment with the realtor for Friday.
I don't know if I'll sleep between now and then.
Work to do and anxious self both. Goodness.
But there is this......
Somehow there are still in-between moments. Waiting for paint to dry. Oatmeal to cook. Pasta water to simmer. Where I can steal a few rows of knitting and read a wee speck of this. It's beautiful, truly. Amanda is genius.
Oh knitting. I have missed you. Purl, slip, purl, slip. I think of this cowl warming my neck this fall. Almost the color of fallen leaves. I think the color may have been underbrush, in fact. Purl, slip, purl, slip. I dream of chickens. A greenhouse to grow kale and lettuce through the winter. Farmer's markets. The children of friends I haven't seen in years. Purl, slip, purl, slip. I think of cousins. Playing. Lots of them.
Oh, what fun this new chapter will be.....
