Homebody Day

 Day 63

I am thankful for another quiet day filled with knitting and household chores.  I am thankful for anticipation of Sunday service of worship.  

I've started looking up thankfulness related Bible verses or passages. 

Hebrews 12:28-29:

Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire. (Wesley's notes:  12:29 For our God is a consuming fire - in the strictness of his justice, and purity of his holiness.)

Knitting progress-today was work on Steven's scarf day.  I'm up to 50 inches!   It still not long enough so I'll keep on working.  I found a nice knitting rhythm today.  Scarf, doubled for measuring:

I continue to be enamored of the feel of alpaca. If it got colder here I would surely knit with it more often. 

Even though we're predicted to have a very low overnight temperature (for us) it feels like spring will soon be here.  I could stand more rain and stormy weather before then!

Lilac leaf buds:

I don't think it was cold enough this winter for abundant lilac blossoms.  They don't much like our temperate winters.  I could be surprised but my best lilac blossoms have been after winters with hard freezes. 


  1. The scarf is really beautiful but I'm rather taken with the John Deere yardstick! (That's "Yon" Deere to me -- my Swedish grandpa, who pronounced J's as Y's, worked for John Deere in Moline, Illinois.)

  2. That's very cool. It's an old yardstick that Mom seemed to have forever. It may date back to the 60s. I have a vague impression of a hardware store connected to the yardstick. The rest of the printing reads: Holt Bros. - Your Headquarters for Caterpillar - STOCKTON - LODI - TRACY. Feed store, maybe. I'm thinking the feed store on Sierra Hwy.

  3. It was three degrees here last night. Muchly looking forward to a warm scarf!

  4. Brrrrrr! Which reminds me, I need to finish my blue scarf that I started a year ago!

  5. Oh my, Steve! There is some incentive to keep going! I have enough on my 2nd skein of yarn to add to Julie's warmy collection, too!
