well, I can’t play the jet lag card anymore. Jet lag is done but I have been feeling kind of pokey lately. I can’t blame that on the heat because it has been cooler than it should be….the humidity has been tolerable and the breezes that blow have brought cool air.
We took a family day and went to the beach on sunday. All three kids are officially snorkellers now. Kazu has been snorkelling for years and Kai for the first time did some sightseeing in the sea. There’s a nice sandy stretch with lots of stingrays to swim through to get out to a jetty and see some coral, bright blue fish, sea urchins and lots of fish. It’s a great way to recharge my batteries….
AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!
I have mentioned before that I come from a long line of quilters. I think my mom has a quilt back to her grandmother. My sister has stitched, my mom stitches, I stitch, and my cousin that I met for the first time 2 years ago and reconnected with this time is a stitcher. It’s an honor and a blessing to be surrounded by other textile lovers. While spending the day with my cousin, I learned several things about her that didn’t surprise me at all because they reminded me so much of myself (and my mother). It seems to be in our DNA. I am happy to report that while attending two knitting get togethers with me my daughter got started on knitting a coaster. She’s doing great and I have high hopes for her future in stitching……
All 3 kids went back to school on Monday for a half day and all day today. I am spending the day pulling stuff out of the closet in the living room and sorting out all my projects and moving forward with them and not starting anything new….Later I will share photos of the suitcase full of material and treasures that I brought back from my trip.
