The sunny weather we had this weekend disappeared in a hurry. We had torrential rain that started sometime in the night and included lightning and thunder. I drove to work in a downpour thinking the day would be blah, but it actually turned out to be a nice one.
I was in a rush this morning trying to decide what knitting to take in: the sweater is too big for school knitting, I was waiting on yarn to continue the baby sweater (the yarn came today, yea!), and the Virginia Tech hat would be a giveaway to the intended recipient. So after dithering about whether I should start yet another project (!), I remembered Steve's barely begun socks and grabbed them instead. Good move, as I forgot how quickly they move along on #5 needles. Mission Falls 1824 wool is so nice on my hands too.
Now that I'm home and have read a few blogs to unwind, I'm piggybacking onto Amanda's idea of simple things after a busy weekend. (It was her bowl of stones that did it; I have one too!)I've had this jar for years; the wire holds a photo or two. You can use it as a vase or fill it with something pretty, like shells.This is a thrifted bowl that holds some of my knitting odds and ends. I love the pale green and scalloped edge.
And finally, this is a heart shaped shell that I use with my mancala board. The board came with little multicolored stones, but I swapped them out for shells almost as soon as I got it. So much nicer, don't you think?
I don't think of myself as materialistic, but things like this make me happy. What little things are making you happy today?
