Having moved to the frozen tundra my MIL felt that she could make hats and mittens for us again. ;) I found a fun pattern but it was a child size and I wasn't sure if she could size it up. So she has been practicing. Here is one of her attempts.
Came in the mail today. It is wicked cute and I love it! I am glad it came today. I needed some fun mail today. It has been a bit rough, missing family and friends, dealing with fiances, and just plain being off. :/
I have been trying to get in the groove of living here and it has been somewhat of a struggle. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that the last time I lived here, there where some rough times with my mom and just growing up in general.
So everyday is an adjustment. Working out my schedule with mom, the kids, the house, and just wanting some time of my own. The sun has been nice this week and the colors are making everything look beautiful. I do love all of the trees and scenery. It is one of those things that I didn't realise I had missed. You just lift where you stand and find beauty in where you are at, so to that was a bit of a revelation. Enough of this morose line. I am okay.
