Conversations with birds.
The brand-new issue of Knitty, posted today. Especially this, since I have to make some baby gifts soon and have nearly worn out my hands crocheting one of these for a friend's newly-hatched chicken. (Photo of my blanky to follow, as soon as I put the finishing touches on it.) (Mine's cuter than the one in the pattern.)
Another cute baby hat to try when I get tired of making the above.
Getting a surprise long-distance call from one of my best and most intimate friends, the kind who's proven she's in it for the long haul. (We're approaching three decades!) (She's lovely, huh?)
Sunny days that aren't too hot for a long walk while pushing The Ancestor in a wheelchair.
Listening to fantastic American music, the kind that pours a measure of strength and healing into my soul on a solemn day of personal and national remembrance.
