This Week... There were Valentine roses... and lots of LOVE-ly this & that!
In the Roman Catholic Church-- A LOT of Saints celebrated this week! St. Catherine de Ricci who experienced miraculous visions and corporeal encounters with Jesus, St. Valentine, of course... Sts. Cyril & Methodius, St. Claude de la Colombiere, among others. And today the Seven Holy Founders of the Order of Servites.
At Home-- I ordered two VERY sweet paper heart garlands from LaMiaCasa on Etsy...and they arrived just in time to hang up for Valentines's Day! And there were love-ly cards and chocolates shared here this week...
Out & About-- while on a walk along our high street/main street, I spied these interesting posters for a photo exhibit on Valentine's Day. No, we didn't go. I wasn't sure about the image of what looked like caramel being poured over a head... :/
On the Menu-- must admit I've been in the kitchen less the last few days, as we've had take-away treats this Valentine's week, including sushi and pizza!
Reading-- Still digging into my February reading...
Listening-- I very much enjoy the articles and podcasts found at On Being, which explores the BIG questions of being human.
Watching-- The funny Hairy Bikers cooking their Comfort Food!
Creating-- On the needles... YES, I'm knitting! After a looong time away from sticks and string, it feels good the I've not forgotten how to knit! For my Good Morning Cowl I've cast on with beautiful sock yarn in this variegated aqua blue color way, and knitting an easy lacework pattern. Details on my Ravelry Projects Page. I needed a break from the rather complicated Joyful Shawl project... *sigh* ...
Inspiration-- These days I feel like I'm recovering something of my creative heart. Last year my heart was heavily engaged in emotional and personal matters, so much so that creativity was often put aside. So in a lot of ways this year feels like a recovery year. I found this podpcast by Jamie Ridler Studios VERY uplifting! I like listening to podcasts, and I have several favorites I tune into regularly... while I'm working on a fiber project... or having morning tea, etc.
LUNA-- a blanket folded up on a window sill makes a perfect window seat/nap spot for our fur-angel... The "bald" spot on her side from her spaying/sterilisation procedure is slowly growing back.
How was your week? Wishing you all a LOVE-ly weekend ahead! :)))
