While Gary and Emma drove to Bozeman on Saturday for Emma's final club soccer games of the season Kate and I propped ourselves up on the couch with yarn, hooks, and a steady stream of Home & Garden TV. Kate's working on her first big hooky project, a baby-blue scarf, and I'm giddy over having my very own crochet partner. Chat. Stitch. Chat. Stitch.
When I needed a break from crocheting I made a few hanging ghosts from some white fabric I found in my studio. They're hanging from the light over the kitchen table.
Sunday was a menagerie of projects — everyone moving around the house to their own beat — mowing the grass, sorting laundry, laboring over homework, filing stacks of bills. All of those tasks that nag at you, annoy you, yet when they're done you feel ten tons lighter.
Sometimes happiness is a quiet weekend at home.
