A quiet life.


Today started early and cloudy and humid and blah. John had a doctor’s appointment at 7:45 and we got up early and went to it.  I was with him because he can’t drive yet and it is still difficult for him to get around. When we got back, we had a fairly quiet morning, and then John went upstairs for a little snooze.  I had decided it might be a good idea to take a large man-made fiber quilt/comforter that really needed it for a wash at a local laundromat as he slept. It wasn’t a tough job by any stretch, but it did require a bit of sitting in the laundromat and knitting.  A tough job, but somebody had to do it.
I worked a little bit on the armholes for the back of the “Natalie Tank/Tee” and watched the heartbreaking news stories coming from Tornado Alley in Oklahoma, Texas and apparently up the center of the country all the way north to Madison, Wisconsin! Those poor folks who lost children and family members and beloved pets and all their worldly possessions! In the face of such devastation, it is impossible to find the words to even comment. My prayers are with all of you in that part of the country.
I am back on the work schedule tomorrow and today I eased back into it by visiting a client in preparation for her hearing in a few weeks. As I went out my front door this afternoon, I was greeted with the sight you see at the top of this blog. Green, lush and wildflowers. As a friend of mine back in my college days used to say as we would see a flower growing out of a concrete slab, “Purely gratuitous:)”
Today has been a quiet day and I will most likely go to bed soon, but first a little bit of knitting and a tv show or two  – or maybe a knitting podcast or two – in the background.
Good night dear readers, and God be with you ’til we meet again+

Wife of one, mother of six, gram of five (so far) and lawyer for many young persons, I love to sing, read, knit and walk. My politics are somewhat left of Marx and I want to hear what you think, too!
