Yesterday was supposed to be a baking day, but, due to no fault of my own, I got off to a late start. Then the 1.5 hours I spent on a phone call didn't help matters any. When I had finally disentangled myself from a bureaucratic web and had hung up the phone, I realized that baking cookies wasn't going to happen that day.
Instead it was more important to spend time with a dear friend. It's hard to resist an afternoon designated for drinking coffee and
knitting . . . and starting a pair of mitts my son requested.
They won't be finished in time for the holidays, and that's fine. I know he'll appreciate them and use them when they're done. That's what counts.
The world is a crazy place these days. My one goal for the holidays is to keep it simple. We'll decorate the tree later today and maybe even bake a few cookies. But in the end, the important thing is spending time with family and friends. Cherish the moments.
This week's color inspiration . . .
Light in the midst of darkness.
If you're celebrating this weekend, may your festivities be merry and bright. And may we all find solace and peace.
