An Early Morning Knit

my brioche shawl in progress, and a nice cup of tea

I admit, I’m a morning person. Always have been. I usually have more energy, can focus better, and get most of my to do list crossed off by early afternoon. After that, things just seem to drag for me; energy flags, and I’m working hard to finish out the day – especially the part where I cook supper once I arrive home… But I like evening too; the quiet, calm part, before bed. Perhaps because I know that evening is a kind of pre-morning – when I wake up, it’ll be morning again with all the potential and endless possibilities of a new day! I really like beginnings! 

Though afternoons tend to be my less favorite part of the day, I do find that an early morning knit seems to help the whole rest of my day run smoothly, even the afternoon!

Hooray for snow!

I was really hoping for at least one good snow storm this winter, and here it is! ❄️⛄️❄️❄️❄️

Joe, on the other hand, claims to hate snow, rolls his eyes at my snow-induced glee, and checks every half hour to see if the snow has stopped so he can go out and start clearing it! I think maybe I shall attempt to bribe him into going on a snow-walk with me tomorrow! If he has fun (hope!) then maybe he’ll start to see that snow isn’t all bad… 😊

These cute little birds were all excited about something in our drive! They were so adorable!
