Here at the Benson household we had a pretty uneventful weekend. We had pancakes on Saturday and went to visit Grandma on Sunday. Since Monday was a school holiday I took the small person down to The World of Coca Cola. He had requested this for an activity over the winter break but instead we decided to become inflicted with pestilence and sit on the couch trying not to cough up our lungs. Good times.
Last night as we were driving to the pet store to buy hay for the bunnies I took this photo through the windshield of the car.
Sometimes I think I need a reminder to stop and appreciate the simple beauty of every day. There is pleasure to be had in the simple. I have been embracing simple for the past few weeks, in my life and in my knitting. This is not to say that the crazy is going to disappear – because that is integral to my nature. But in the upcoming months you should expect to see some simpler pieces coming out.
While the weekend was a study in every day, last week held a little excitement. I started a new job! Don’t worry, it shouldn’t cut into my knitting time too much. I will be working two days a week at my LYS! I am completely stoked to be working in a yarn store again. Spending several days a week surrounded by yarny goodness and interacting with knitters of all kinds is wonderful for keeping my mojo going strong. So YAY! Come visit me if you are in the area. I am there on Thursday & Friday until 2.
