Just Life


view from yesterday’s morning walk

Thinking about how I’m going to document our trip – both while we’re traveling and once we’re back home. This post is coming to you from the WordPress app on my iPad. so far so good. and there’s Instagram. and 1SE videos. and maybe a photo book.

Grateful for getting back to the lake! Marc and I walked there and back yesterday morning (3.5 miles – by far my longest walk in months). I’ve driven by that spot many times since June, but seeing it from the sidewalk was different. and wonderful.

Inspired by an even chillier forecast for Vienna to knit a headband! I have one ball of light pink Luxury Tweed Aran from my mother-in-law’s stash. 100 yards. and this pattern. (and a long plane flight.)

Fun … today is Carole’s birthday! sending you many good wishes, my friend!

And wishing all of you a wonderful weekend – Happy Friday!
