Since getting back from our trip west to our daughter's wedding, my mother has been placed permanently in a nursing home. I've been going back and forth a bit to help out and trying to live life 3 1/2 hours away. A few doctors appointments along with my siblings and I packing up her things from her apartment. That was bittersweet, pleasant and painful both. What wasn't packed in boxes to be stored or taken by family, was donated.
So, in the midst of all that, I joined a take and swap that Nancy from Wyoming Breezes had hosted. I received the package, picked out what I wanted, replaced what I took with items that I had to give away, taped it up again, printed a mailing label and off it went to it's next destination. Whew, did you get all that? LOL :)
I also received from Nancy a jar of honey and a cute Longaberger basket. Thank you Nancy.
I wound up this yarn and I couldn't believe how big the cakes ended up being. I love this yarn and I can't wait to get started on knitting it up in the Bozeman Vest.
The mornings now are so beautifully cool, but we're still having nice weather in the 70's and low 80's, which I am enjoying, the snow will be here before you know it and I'm enjoying each day till it gets here.
I call this next photo the morning after The Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse. Did you all see it last night? Wasn't it awesome!
And life goes on.
