Another busy week has flown by and now the glorious weekend can embrace us. I’m still working on my closets/cabinets cleaning and organizing but I’ve made lots of progress. Also on my agenda is the button scarf for the Finn and Donk’s Sewing Adventure project.
Gentlemen of the Past
Today is (was) the dapper and debonair Cary Grant’s birthday. Mr. Grant would have been 104 today and probably just as much a gentleman as in his prime. Besides his good looks, I admire his inherent charming nature and good humor.
This is also A.A. Milne’s birthday, creator of the “Winnie the Pooh” stories. I have fond memories of reading his stories aloud to my children when they were small.
I appreciate the contributions both men gave to the world.
The lovely bandage photo is Jan's (and used with her permission). Her fingers have been flying on their crochet mission. What a blessing that so many have joined in our bandage brigade. It comes to an end next week and then I’ll quickly box them for shipping to the group flying out to deliver them.
Return to Grace
With the republication of Victoria magazine and the wonderful Jane Austen series being publicized on PBS, I feel a calm flow into a gentler rhythm. Both are wonderful reminders to cherish our time and find bliss within as well as without.
May your blessings be many this weekend (and don’t forget about Northanger Abby on Sunday night)!
