President's Day Weekend...

And the day after Valentine's Day - I pilfered the "Nice Matters" blog button from Pat that is such a romantic, rose-filled, Victorian Valentine that I just had to add it to my sidebar. And I'll ditto Pat's sentiments as well: all of the blogs I read are worthy of this award so if you'd like to share the button, please do, but since I recently "awarded" folks, I'm not going to again. Still, such a gorgeous piece of graphics...and the sentiment is perfect - because nice truly is what's important! (not fakey nice, the true kind!)

Thanks, Pat!

It's been an extraordinarily long week. While the weather started out incredibly cold and dangerously windy, causing a lot of suffering in my neck of the woods, yesterday was in the 50s and today 65.

But don't blink. Tomorrow will be in the 40s and they're calling for snow on Sunday! This is what it means to live here - we're in the bowl of the mountain foothills and if the cold air banks against the mountains, we're in for it. But the Blue Ridge offers protections, too, and so we can have see-saw weather, like what we've had.

It can be exhausting tho'

I'm looking forward to a 3-day weekend, with lots of sewing...

But I finally tonight finished the last two rows of the additional repeat on Catharina, and started the edging (again!). There are 24 more scallops to complete this - I'm aiming for the end of the month...and I know Big Sis can't wait!

I've ordered a cone of cashmere/silk from Colour Mart (what amazing prices!) in a gorgeous mushroom colorway. I've got to decide on a pattern, but that is vying for the next lace project (along with trying to complete Diamond Fantasy Shawl, which has been OTN for way too long - longer than Catharina!).

Valentine's Day came and went mostly uneventfully this year, with a couple of exceptions:
This was my lovely gift from the DD, DSIL, and DGS's x3! My favorite color, of if I can just manage to keep it alive (I have so few spots in this house where plants can thrive...fingers crossed)! I do love orchids so...thanks kids!
Big Sis sent this along (from Mt. Vernon). A lovely rose pin that I'll enjoy wearing, I know. It's just stunning...

So I'm feeling a bit spoiled.

(And tired...really tired...hope it's just that and nothing worse - if YOU'VE got the flu, please take care of yourself? From the news, it sounds really bad, and I know here in Virginia, there are enough cases to make it "widespread" across the state!)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
