There is no need to go to India or anywhere else to find peace. You will find that deep place of silence right in your room, your garden or even your bathtub. ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
A new year has brought new socks:
I knit them from this blank (received in a sock blank swap):
The colors are a bit more muted that I usually go for, but I do like them a lot.
There’s been stash enhancement (some received as a gift and some bought with Christmas money):
I admit that I was hooked by the name of this color: Film Noir.
The yarn is perfect for a classic movie nerd like me. To make the yarn even cooler, it’s self striping!
I’ve had the past ten days off work. During my vacation a friend and I went to the see the Little House musical. I’m a die hard bonnethead (fan of LH and Laura Ingalls Wilder) so I expected to love it. My non-bonnethead friend also really enjoyed it. The musical was very, very well done. The cast was terrific and so were the songs. I was most pleased that the story stuck to the books (unlike the TV series). If you have a chance to see this show, I highly recommend it.
I spent the rest of my time off with my girls. There’s been bone chewing (them, not me :) ):
Lots of squirrel watching (again them, not me):
Hanging out together:
And a ton of all around cuteness:
