Something new

Published on Thursday March 7th, 2013

A lemonade recipe: car accident > lots of chiropractic visits > an extra day of nursery school for the baby > Creative Thursdays! (It was a minor smash, as these things go; the littles were mercifully unharmed and Mama is going to be fit as a fiddle again in a few more weeks.) The upside is a whack of personal time this one day a week, the likes of which I haven’t seen in two and a half years. Today should have been about a spit-and-polish of the Pomander pattern, newly improved by a group of savvy and thoughtful test knitters. But friends, it is impossible for a Portlander not to be swept up in high-hearted pursuit of new visions when the heavens shake off a forecast of Typical Wet Gloom and give us, instead, a glorious halcyon day.

    Oh no, sounds scary! Glad to hear that the little ones are OK and you’re on the mend. Beautiful project in progress — love that floral fabric.

    Oh spring time. I’m not 100% convinced it is going to happen. The latest snowstorm is still having maddening swirls outside of the windows, making me wish I could work in my own home.

    Thank goodness for car seats and steel and so forth, and nursery school and personal time and most of all, spring. Here’s to healing for you, including that excellent treasure of personal time.

    Oh no! I’m sorry that happened and that you were hurt. Hope you are healing okay. Be sure to get enough sleep and eat well, if that’s possible. Glad the munchkins are ok.
