It's the end of the semester now, and I'm finally getting a chance to exhale.

It's been a tough few months with very little time to relax and reflect, which is why I've been scarce here. Working hard. Shoulder to the wheel.

Don't have much more to say about it except to say that even in the midst of the strain there were moments of beauty.  I'm surrounded by a spectacular landscape. When I've taken the time to open my eyes, as I did when Mountain Man visited here, it's gone straight to the soul ...

with wonders small (seafoam and sand dollars) and large (sunsets).  And now that I'm through the trial-by-fire of my first semester of teaching, I'm hoping to be able to open my eyes to these wonders a little more.

I haven't been knitting much, by the way, but I do have one sweet project to share with you. Next post ... coming soon ...
