This lovely lady is my granddaughter, Susannah, on her very first Christmas morning. She is the apple of everyone’s eye and the center of attention where she happens to be. Seven months old and perfect. Christmas was the best in a long time, babies have their own magic I think.
Arkansas is digging out of a snowstorm that started yesterday right on schedule according to the TV weather people. They predicted snow would start falling around 3 pm and dang, if it didn’t. Here in Little Rock we got 6 inches more or less. When it snows this much, everything in the city pretty much grinds to a halt. The day before winter weather is predicted, everyone heads to the grocery store, whether they need to or not. By the time the weather arrives, the store shelves, especially bread and junk food, are bare. Crazy. Things should be getting back to normal tomorrow.
I started a Scarf -in-a-Scarf kit on Saturday and thought everything was going swimmingly until I reread the instructions and realized that I was totally off the count with the pattern, like knitting twice as many rows as I should have. The upshot is that I frogged the entire thing and started all over again. Note to self, always read through the pattern and keep referring to it as you go. Duh.
Today’s deep thought: Keep seeing the magic in life.
