It is the most beautiful Autumn morning so far this season. Sunny - crisp - cold (39F)- just the right type of weather for making a fire in the fire place (wonder if that would count me out in the Yarn Harlot's furnace wars - hmmm..), getting all cuddly in a favorite chair and knitting the day away. It's even the perfect day for an outside event, but don't forget to bring the knitting - it would be such a lost opportunity on a day like this. These are the kinds of days when people ask you about your knitting and you are so filled with the joy of it all that you over share (something about crisp air and knitting makes me chatty.) That's alright, these days are also the days for making new knitters. Someone will get inspired today, learn a new skill and a new muse will be born full of ideas and ready for mischief. Ah, I love these days so much - wonder would I get tired of them if I had my way and each day were like this? Hmm....Does be careful what you wish for come into play here? Hmm...Oh who cares it's a knitty day and I'm lovin' it. Go forth and love it, too...We'll just have one big knitty love fest!!!
Oh - just remembered must move some furniture around with DH later as we are making the formal living room a non-formal, but secondary cozy family space. We are not formal people and we do not live formal lives so I have never seen a reason for us to have a formal living space. The furniture is lovely and came from a real furniture store,(gift from mother when I finished my thesis,) not IKEA, which is my home design studio of choice. Well, by choice, but let's be real by wallet as well. Anyway, DH and I have never had a house this large and even after a year we are still trying to get the layout just right. The current great room/kitchen-dining area are just right, but this other room has been bothering me the whole time. It has the fireplace and after living in Seattle, I refuse to give up such cozy and inexpensive form of heating. So, as this room sits next to the family room we are going to try and merge the two.
OK - off to enjoy the lovely day - hope you all are as inspired as I.
Peace and joy to you all...
