On Monday last week I posted that I would be absent for a while. A slowly simmering family situation was starting to boil, and I needed to focus my attention. In this world of numerous responsibilities and countless distractions, we have one rule. Family first.
Sometimes it's best not to have any warning of the difficult situations that await you. There are some things in life you can't truly grasp until they actually happen. The ensuing days included heartache, turmoil, tears and even a few laughs. I have many friends and family members who rose to the occasion, and I'm forever grateful to my support network. As my family slowly transitions back to normal routines, we are reminded that life will never be the same, but as a family we are stronger and ready for the challenges ahead. There is peace.
This is a long holiday weekend for many, and it marks the unofficial end of summer. This summer has been far from ordinary, and I'm happy to bid it adieu. To wrap it up on a positive note, I'm squeezing in the August giveaway. Leave a comment and let us know what you're knitting. Do you have a special fall project in the works? Are there any Rhinebeck sweaters among us? Are you particularly proud of a project you just finished? The winner, chosen at random, will receive a skein of yarn from Dirty Water DyeWorks - winner's choice. The contest closes on Friday, September 5, 2014.
For my color inspiration this week, I leave you with this.
Charming shades of pink.
