I am lucky in so many ways and so I have never been tested as so many people I know are. I have everything I need and most of what I want. I have started a meditation practice in the last month and found a doable yoga class to fit into my schedule yesterday. I have lovely people in my life. I even have a cute dog.
I know 2012 is going to be a landmark year. Full of new experiences and challenges. My goal, my only goal, is to flow like water through it. Powerful, graceful water. Moving through the hard places with strength and speed, lingering and stretching out in the peaceful moments.
Thank you all so much for being with me in 2011. I hope you'll flow with me in 2012.
Happy New Year!

This morning I was told it was "santa hat day" at school and asked to whip something up. I didn't have any red or white around that would do the trick. Only an old black sweater someone had felted by accident and handed over to me. I had just read the other day about machine couching and so I grabbed some red wool roving and added that. Senor insisted it needed a pom-pom so I made two.
The scarf is his Solstice gift. I cut into some beautiful wool and cotton blend plaid from Liberty of London that had been gifted to me from a vintage stash. Papa got one and I made myself a shawl. Now we all match! I am so happy to have found something so everyday useful for this beautiful fabric.
After getting ready for school we had to drop by a neighbors house and give her a Christmas card.
Happy Solstice everyone!!

(Two today because I missed yesterday completely.) I love Saturdays better than any other day. First e helped Papa making waffles in the big kitchen, then Papa helped e make rubber duck soup in the little kitchen.

I had been feeling very good about myself. But then she mentioned it was only ten days to Christmas. And I realized there are some important people that I have only thought about and done nothing for. Now I have to remember to breath.
