Yesterday, despite what I understand was a bit of a wind, was gorgeous. But overnight, changes moved in, as they are wont to do this time of year, and the rain has poured and the temperatures dropped. Fall is here, even tho' the leaves are only just beginning their annual show (I do hope they're lovely this year!).
While I was in the sewing studio, working on orders from the St. Luke's Craft Fair, the doorbell rang. It's a measure of the discomfort I've lived in since the burglary in July, that I jumped, but then realized I had the security alarm on (and that is comforting, tho' I'm sad it's come to this in my life). I went to the door to find this package:
Wonderful herbal teas from Mountain Rose Herbs
in Oregon. I ordered the winter's supply a week ago, and here they were. Since then, I've had a cup of the Lemon, and am currently sipping a cup of the Winter Spice. YUMMY!
But before the day was out, I realized I was feeling a bit of a lump in my throat, and waking this morning, it was still there. It's not much more than that, but I'm moving slower today, as the rain and chill seeps into our valley. Only in the 50s today and down to the 30s overnight tonight.
So I'm keeping a low profile, thinking of what I must do and what I can leave, and being very grateful that this is a long holiday weekend for me. I'll probably lay low tomorrow, too. And fortunately, there's NoSoKnit in about 3 weeks, so I'm working on a comforting Feather & Fan
premie blanket (such a satisfying pattern to knit, in whatever you use it for) in the discontinued Cascade Cherub Collection DK in pink. I made this in white last year, and had time to whip out a premie cap and small socks, too. Not sure if I'll have time for all that this time,
...but the blanket is enough. This is lovely yarn, I'm sorry it's been discontinued.
I hope you have had a good weekend.
