Friday, 5 pm. End of a frustrating week. So nice to just step out into the backyard and let myself relax. It's beautiful out here. The sun is dropping low in the sky, lighting up the grapefruits on the tree.
In the middle of the lawn, Isis is crunching on pecans. She's very cute -- she roots around in the bushes to find the nuts that have fallen from the pecan trees, and then she brings them to the center of the yard to eat.
As for me, I'm looking forward to a very peaceful, very happy hour of sipping tea, soaking up the sunset, and working on my sweater. It's going to be a Katarina cardigan, with miles of meditative stockinette stitch.
p.s. I sent off emails to the winners of the Manzanita Cowl patterns. Thanks again to everyone who entered!
