routines

Some of my favorite routines. I love this cafe, in this picture is one of the reasons - a water feature. I love, love, love the sound of water! And they serve Tully's coffee here. My other favorite about this particular place is the outdoor seating area -- too cold and wet this season for sitting out there, but I will definitely be back as soon as possible. Also this is inside an *amazing* plant center - full of inspiration for the kind of lush garden space I'm planning to create in our own yard one day.
I'm co-facilitating the Lent art projects with the children's group tomorrow. We're making purple stolls with stencils and paint (and stories to explain the symbols chosen to represent Lent).
I love knowing that I'm doing something good for myself everyday. Even when it's so blech outside that I can't go for a walk by the water.
Oh, the personality of trees - knots and moss and wonky branches! A psychology class in college...one of our grad student instructors gave us each an apple. We were to look at it for 5 minutes. Then describe it. Better than an art class. I really got to know the details of that apple. And have really paid more attention to the details of natural things since then.
Preparing for another pair of socks. This is Colinette yarn. Purchased in October on our roadtrip up to our new home. I think I'm going to knit the Azure pattern.
