Thank you so much for all the kind anniversary wishes. We are happy as clams up here in the mountains of Colorado. You may have heard that there are fires raging here in our state. We're praying that they are under control very soon.
The sky is so blue and the clouds are so puffy. Yes, we deal with a bit of smog in our city. It's been a long time since we enjoyed the mountain air.
The paths and trails are groomed and inviting.
Look! I found a toadstool!
I looked for Ratty, messing about in his boat, but I didn't see him.
We ate a delicious supper in this cozy spot.
I sat and worked on my ripples for a while. This puffy cloud floated by.
It is so beautiful and I am feeling rather spoiled. Tomorrow we'll go home and I'll get ready for my first granny stint.
Real quick: I forgot my ripple instructions (they are online, I know) but I marveled at how my fingers remembered what to do when I picked up the hook. What other nice things do you think our hands remember? What do our hands remember because our ancestors busied themselves with the same activities? When I cleaned houses, I felt like I was carrying on a tradition. I think my distant relatives of long ago might have been house helpers. I really don't know, but it's fun to think about what hands remember. Tina commented that my bridal hands looked slender and elegant. I noticed those overgrown nails! I didn't need to use those hands for scrubbing just yet, but soon after I was washing a sink full of wedding dishes. I trim my nails very short because I like the way working hands look. By the way, if I've met someone I can always remember their hands because it's the first thing I notice.
What will you do with your good hands today?
