Sometimes I write my blog posts a day or two ahead, then schedule them for appearing on my blog. Depending on what is going on in my life, it makes this blog easier and usually what I write isn’t relevant if it is posted a day or two after.
So, here I am looking the slight fool… I’m thanking you all a day late for all the kind comments about my experience with Julia, her teachers, and her clothing. It was heartening to hear that many of you had had similar experiences when you too were raising your children. I really appreciate all the varying points of view. As The Farmer and I were reading them, we couldn’t help but marvel at how this blog has traveled to so many different parts of the world and so many people. (Just so you know, I have to print out all those comments for The Farmer to read because he won't sit down in front of the computer - if it's not on paper, it doesn't really exist in his world.) Thank you all.
We had an icy, sleety dangerous driving day yesterday and so no school for Julia. There went my plans for lots of pattern writing and tweaking. I do always love a snow day – as much now as I did when I was a kid. For me, I get to spend the whole day with Julia doing what we can agree upon together or separately. I worked on a knitting project that I hope to let you in on next week. Julia worked on her movie - her script, letters of permission for her co-stars, medical waiver forms, casting and manager letters for her co-stars and call sheets. She might have some developmental and learning problems that the we and her school worry about but somewhere down there inside of her, stuff is starting to click. She typed on my laptop for a seriously long time.
In case you haven’t heard, the American public is going to be seeing lots of yellow real soon. Me, I love yellow – it speaks sunflowers all over the place. In my last house, I had a beautifully sunny bright yellow kitchen. For those of you who are color-shy, never fear. You don't need to use a lot of yellow - just a little goes a long way. It is happy and fresh and vibrant. By February, we're all going to be craving some yellow! Guess those color forecasting trends are just catching up to us here on our little farm. And it just so happens, I've added a fabulous sunflower yellow color to the Julia Yarn Line for next fall.
Noon today, I’ll be drawing the winner of the sock yarn giveaway. Check back in then.
