Always Fresh Bread- A Handmade Gift

A day to be appreciative of all we have in our lives. Olga, my DIL’s mother gave me a handmade linen bag with a special lining to keep bread fresh. Made in Ukraine.

It says in Ukrainian alway fresh bread

After more than three weeks away, I slept in my home bed in a warm house last night. It was a long day of travel so lots of time to knit and reflect on a wonderful visit with my son and his family. I received many welcome home messages and it was lovely How good it feels to be able to travel again. To be with those you love. To meet a 2020 granddaughter.

I’m grateful for my family and friends and all of you who stop by here.

I found an article about Giving Thanks from Harvard Health Publishing and how it can make one happier. I believe it!

Umbrellas- Yes or No?

At home I have a big black umbrella in the car. And at least one in the house. Last Christmas I received the gift of one with a yarn/knitting theme. I’ve sat under a golf one at a lacrosse game, but when I think about it, I use them rarely. I’m not sure why but I’m thinking about it. This trip I’ve relied on a hooded rain jacket when I’m out and about in the rain.

I learned in the History of umbrellas umbrellas have been around for 4000 years! Who knew?

Do you use an umbrella?
