Sabbath Keeping

~ the Cove valley ~
"It was You who set all the boundaries of the earth;
You made both summer and winter."
~ Psalm 74:17 ~

"Hope springs eternal in the human breast;
Man never Is, but always To be blest:
The soul, uneasy and confin'd from home,
Rests and expatiates in a life to come."

"She stood in the storm and when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted her sails." ~ Elizabeth Edwards ~

"Live in the sunshine
Swim the sea
Drink the wild air."
~ Emerson ~

"A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart , and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words." ~ unknown ~

"Let us love winter for it is the spring of genius." ~ Pietro Aretino ~

"No winter lasts forever, no spring skips its turn."  ~ Hal Borland ~

"One kind word can warm three winter months." ~ proverb ~

"Dear Winter: 
I'm breaking up with you. 
It's time to see other seasons."

"What a severe yet master artist old Winter is... No longer the canvas and the pigments, but the marble and the chisel."
~ John Burroughs, The Snow-Walkers, 1866 ~

"Spring, summer, and fall fill us with hope; winter alone reminds us of the human condition." ~ Mignon McLaughlin ~

"Winter must be cold for those with no warm memories." 
~ An Affair To Remember ~

"Let there be a cottage... a real cottage... a white cottage, embowered with flowering shrubs, so chosen as to unfold a succession of flowers upon the walls, and clustering round the windows through all the months of spring, summer, and autumn - beginning, in fact, with May roses, and ending with jasmine. Let it, however, not be spring, nor summer, nor autumn - but winter, in his sternest shape. This is a most important point in the science of happiness. And I am surprised to see people overlook it, and think it matter of congratulation that winter is going; of, if coming, if not like to be a severe one. On the contrary, I put up a petition annually, for as much snow, hail, frost, or storm, of one kind or other, as the skies can possibly afford us. Surely every body is aware of the divine pleasures which attend a winter fire-side: candles at four o'clock, warm hearth-rugs, tea, a fair tea-maker, shutters closed, curtains flowing in ample draperies on the floor, whilst the wind and rain are raging audible without..."
~ Thomas De Quincey ~

"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again." ~ Lewis Carroll ~

"My old grandmother always used to say, Summer friends will melt away like summer snows, but winter friends are friends forever." ~ George R. R. Martin ~

"A lot of people like snow.
I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water."
~ Carl Reiner ~

"The heart can get really cold if all you've known is winter." 
~ Benjamin Alire Saenz

"I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape - the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show." ~ Andrew Wyeth ~

"Drive my dead thoughts over the universe
   Like withered leaves to quicken a new birth!
  And, by the incantation of this verse,
Scatter, as from an unextinguished hearth
  Ashes and sparks, my words among manking!
  Be through my lips to unawakened earth
The trumpet of a prophecy! O, wind,
   If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?"
~ Percy Bysshe Shelley

"Pray that your flight will not take place in winter
or on the Sabbath." 
~ Matthew 24:20 ~

Prayer Keeping ~ Donna ~ GJ & Bill ~ Noreen ~ Quinn ~ Sandra ~

Seattle LYS - OMG

All those little orange arrows represent yarn shops near where we're going! Can you believe it?

I'm going to Seattle!

I am so excited! Chris and I are going to Seattle in November to visit with DNS (dear Navy son) & NW (new wife) Jean. I am researching what fibery trouble I can get into while there and find that I may reach new heights (or depths) of wantonness. Check out this list of local shops JUST in the Seattle area - we Central Virginians can't even touch this many shops in one day without an airplane or helocopter! I've been talking with some Ravelry folks who live in that area and all of them have said - oh, come see us on our knit night! Frankly, I don't think I'd see much of Chris, DNS or DIL if left to my own devices :P So, I will hopefully keep you posted - but I have a request of you -- if you know of somewhere or someone to visit when I'm there, please do let me know - there is so much to see and do and we want to be as busy as our poor aging bodies will let us! LOL OH AND DON'T FORGET - the FFF (Fal Fiber Festival) is this week-end at James Madison's Montpelier - a link is in the right sidebar! Cat

Colonial Heights has few major crimes but does have an inordinate number of thefts, vandalisms and the like. Increased awareness will benefit everyone : )

Update and updates needed

Really looking forward to being more moblie and more verbal in the New Year.

I have been knitting....Lots and lots of lace starts and dozens of hats. Really working on my felted hats and purses and embellishment patterns, thanks to the grands and greats...If one gets something the others can't be left out.

Bryer is still with me almost every day. The little redhead spitfire is now 3. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays I am also watching 3 year old Christian and his brother Taylor in Glen Allen.

My three day a week PT is now down to one day and I am feeling so much better. Gotta keep up the exercises. If anyone one wants to come out to the farm and walk, I'd love to have some companions. We could walk, lunch and knit...Or visa versa...

Back to list duties. We'd like all of you to update your information and if you know of happenings like nearby fiber festivals or happenings we need that information updated also.

It seems we have some addresses on the list that are no longer active or valid. It would be helpful to us, since membership is limited, if you could let us know if you are still interested in being a member of this group....If you have friends that would like to be members please don't hesitate to e-mail Cathy or me....Please drop in and say hello and let us know what you are doing these days....Remember this is your blog spot too. Let's all use it.
