Hello loves! Happy Sunday. :)
How are you? Did the week treat you well? I am still here fighting the good fight against these warm temperatures. A friend sent me a message on Ravelry and mentioned she hoped that our weather here is cooling down. Unfortunately it is not yet...I say yet because this heat will come to end eventually and when it does as will this constant whining about it. ;) Promise.

Despite my constant complaints, I am actually very grateful. My mother mentioned to me that quote: The things we take for granted, someone else is praying for. I try to remember that whenever the case of the whines get too bad. So for the good things...knitting. Knitting on some new socks. Like tea, sock knitting is a cure all for me.
The fact that we have fun things to help with our knitting really makes it that much more, right? Isn't this DPN holder adorable. Inside fabric, (which would have been helpful if I had taken a picture of that as well), is sweet colorful raindrops. We all know how happy rain makes me.
Reading a book recommended by a Raverly friend and munching on my favorite cookies. Who could be feeling down with that combination?
Snail mail love along with a mini skein = love. This sweet correspondence was part of a Thinking of You swap of sorts hosted by the brilliant Antonella of the Antonella Makes podcast Raverly group.
As you can see there is no reason to be sad or down about the weather when so many wonderful things are going on. Often times I have to "check" myself and remember that life is good and it is what we make it. How about you? Do you ever need to "check" yourself? What are some things that you are grateful for today?
Here are some of mine:
- Knitting and knitting time
- Wonderful tea
- Sundays and being able to spend them with you all
- Family and friends
- Air conditioning
- Another day on this beautiful planet
Now we get to the winner's of the Stash tea bag holders.
