I am so glad I brought he tomatoes and peppers in last night.... we had our first frost. Now its time to put the gardens to bed and study the seed catalogues!
Despite how cold it was I spent a wonderful morning outdoors at Joyner Park in Wake Forest, NC
Isn't that lovely? My mission?
.. Teaching a basketry class to some wonderful folks...
..oh how I love watching little hands take reeds and get excited as it turns into a basket..over and under over and under over and under... I watch them get a rhythm...an understanding .... I get excited as they get excited.... as an added bonus the word was the pecan grove was "dropping" at the park .. so we also had the company of folks with bags and buckets scooping up the " puh-chans.. pee cans... puhcans... from teh ground. So not only did I teach a basketry class, but the extra bonus of showing them how to take two pecans and squeeze them together to crack the nut and dig out hte delicious nut meat... weave a bit, find a nut, crack niblle... repeat... the whole process just made my heart full!
after the class it was errand time... library, drop off some donations at the thrift shop, a stop to pick up a bit of fabric....
...then my favorite stop!
The local hospital maternity ward where I dropped off our knitting/ crochet groups hats for the Month of Purple Crying, awareness on shakey baby syndrome.
I had a few pictures of the group when we met to do them, but my camera must have eaten them... anyhow... the whole process was a ton of fun... and an added bonus was that I showed up just as our friends first grandbaby was being born and was the first to be able to give her a congrats and a hug...!
Its cold again tonight, we are tucked in for the evening... I have a cuppa hot tea and my new books from the library... this day felt like a giant hug...
I hope everyone has a fine day... all day long!
