Thunder and lightning are not that common in these parts...
the cats were freaked out by the noise and the forked white lighting quite unhinged me.
Now the skies have opened up and we are getting buckets of rain.
It's a great day to stay inside our Humble Bungalow
hunker down and cocoon,
just keep warm and dry.
The LG machines are swishing through their cycles as I conquer the laundry.
Not that I am a domestic warrior but I do feel powerful when it comes to getting the job done...
especially with these sturdy and reliable workhorses.
My new morning routine seems to be falling into place...
I tidy up as I move from room to room.
Last night I washed the Le Creuset frying pan and left it to dry with a few other utensils on the mat beside the sink, this is a new habit for me leaving dishes to air dry overnight. It used to really annoy me when I was working to wake up and see things that I needed to do before I left for work...
as a retiree spending more time in our Humble Bungalow as this is my domain.
I work here!
Making lists of things that I need to do helps to keep me organized. My lists are short as I try to get them done in a timely fashion.
Do you use lists to keep you on top of things?
Achieving a rhytmn and balance on my daily round is a work in process.
One that I am figuring out as I go along.
Yesterday I spent the morning playing with our lovely grand-daughter Isla and I held wee Henry while his mom did some laundry. He is a very calm and content baby. I loved looking at his small fingers as they curled around mine.
He is such a gift...and I cannot tell you how beautiful and sweet he is! I can try but words seem to fail me.
I promised not to show pictures of my grandchildren here on the blog so you'll have to trust me!
It is so heartwarming holding a newborn child,
it is rather overwhelming gazing down at the wee man in my arms knowing that he is our grandson.
Do you remember this felted bag?
I made it several years ago when I was on a knitting/felting binge!
I'm knitting a baby hat.
I love this yarn as it is so bright and cheerful.
Adriafil superwash Italian virgin wool

You can find great patterns at Churchmouse Yarns.
This one is easy peasy
a perfect little project to have on hand for a rainy day.
Thanks to my friend Claire at Boutique de Laine in the Estevan Village,
she is super friendly and very knowledgeable when it comes to knitting.
Do you knit?
Where do you like to shop for yarns and patterns?
Online or in person?
Must close for now and put the kettle on for some tea...
and pick up my knitting.
