Write it out and get going

We took the leaf out of the dining room table together this evening, the three of us, and it helped: shrinking it back down to normal took away the visual sting that Morgan and his daughters are no longer here at our house swapping stories, laughing over bad puns, enjoying each other’s company and making new memories to treasure. The visit was far too short.

Just one last set of sheets to run through the wash.

While I spent the day trying to remember what it’s like to be totally caught up in a knitting project, which I feel I should be doing now–it’s like I needed a day or two to, on some level, mope first.  It’s way more fun loving the people you love in person, y’know?

Oh. It’s like I almost somehow forgot: the knitting is all about the love, too. Well then!

The so-longs are so hard! But I’m glad you all had time to make more memories to treasure…happy laundry, Alison! And knitting, happy knitting. 🙂

Bad puns? Is there such a thing as a BAD pun?
Visitors gone. Look at all the wonderful memories you have.

I hate saying goodbye — time to throw yourself into a new project!

Thanks for sharing bits of the clearly joyful visit with us. Will you share some of the puns too?

The house always feels so empty. It is bittersweet – I do love having my loved ones here, but I also love having my quiet space, too.
