Moonlight and Laughter Yarn
There are three things that I am not. The first is musical. I was one of the children sitting in the front of the class in elementary school during music class who was told to just "mouth" the words. Nonetheless, I love listening to music and appreciate the many friends through the decades who never said a word when I joined in all my tone-deaf glory in group singing. There are lots of you and I am grateful. I've had such a good time throughout the years.
I am not technologically inclined. It's taken me quite awhile to get the rudiments of blogging and adding graphics and here, too, I am grateful for all the affectionate and generous advice I've received.
But most of all, I am truly inept with knitting and sewing. It is a gift from my dear Home Economics teacher, Miss Naylor, that she didn't fail me for the worst dress ever made in Junior High School, the olive green polished cotton model, that I painfully worked on for five long months in 1963. I have never learned to knit or even cast on, for that matter, despite the best instruction in the world from my mother, an extraordinary knitter. The needles never went any way they were supposed to go. But I've picked out a lot of lovely yarn over the years for the suits and sweaters my mother made for me. During our visit to the Farmer's Market I saw some of the most beautiful yarn I've ever seen. It was being spun by a lovely woman and I knew I had to share the gorgeous colors.
If I could knit I know I would have come away with at least half dozen of these wonderful mitten kits.
The source of this beauty is Moonlight and Laughter.
One thing I do very well is drink coffee and we had delicious coffee to drink with names as great as Moonlight and Laughter. I took a picture of the coffee stand, but it wasn't blog-worthy -- though the coffee is. I am going to share a link to the coffee's blog St. Lawrence Valley Roasters . We especially liked the Chocolate Fudge. With just a little cream and a little Splenda it was a great treat.
So looking forward to the weekend. Not a lot of plans and that feels just fine. It turned out to be a long week. We had a two-hour meeting this afternoon to review plans for two big projects for the next year. I've been doing the research for the presentation for the last month and happily, the meeting went well. So glad there are three days ahead to relax and not think about work. Hurricane Earl seems to have passed over us completely which makes me very happy, too. I'm going to go off to one of my favorite guilty pleasures, "Say Yes to the Dress" and then a good night's sleep.
Wishing you lots of pleasures, rest and moonlight and laughter!
