Yarn Along – A Filled Jar

On Wednesday’s knitters go to Ginny’s to share all the wonderful projects being worked on, finished, frogged, cried over, and learned from. They also tell what they are reading and a little of the storyline or provoking thoughts. I think it is great. So many books, knitting ideas and hints on how to make knitting more enjoyable.

Very little knitting has been done; I was embroidering pillowcases for our three married children.  No pictures, they turned out pretty (I thought) and I added beads for a little bling.

with some embroidery thread as a topper.

I’m reading, not listening to, a book of Sherlock Holmes mysteries. I’m enjoying it more than I thought. I don’t really try to figure out the problems – I like being surprised.

Joining Ginny, and many other knitters.

January 8, Today’s thought – Recipe

Good Morning

Happy New Year – a week late.

First 5 days of the year I was with Grandsons while parents went to the coast.  My lap top wouldn’t hook up to internet and I refused to try to post from my Ipad.  I came home sick with whatever is going around – so today, thankfully I believe I’m going to live. It’s been a long time since I had felt that bad.  Today is just a simple recipe I found at Stitchin’ Heaven’s weekly newsletter.  Stitchin Heaven is a great quilt shop.

Recipe For A Happy New Year

Take twelve fine, full-grown months; see that these are thoroughly free from old memories of bitterness, rancor and hate. Cleanse them completely from every clinging spite; pick off all specks of pettiness and littleness; in short, see that these months are freed from all the past. Have them fresh and clean as when they first came from the great storehouse of Time.

Cut these months into thirty or thirty-one equal parts. Do not attempt to make up the whole batch at one time (so many persons spoil the entire lot this way) but prepare one day at a time.

Into each day put equal parts of faith, patience, courage, work (some people omit this ingredient and so spoil the flavor of the rest), hope, fidelity, liberality, kindness, rest (leaving this out is like leaving the oil out of the salad dressing— don’t do it), prayer, meditation, and one well-selected resolution.

Put in about one teaspoonful of good spirits, a dash of fun, a pinch of folly, a sprinkling of play, and a heaping cupful of good humor.

Psalm 118:24
This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Rejoice . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
