We have been gripped by cold this past week, it’s really been freezing! I’m so grateful to be able to go outside and sit in the warm sun. Oh, to feel those rays on your skin is just lovely. Jen spotted a little visitor in our kitchen yesterday, a Praying Mantis, this is the largest one I’ve ever seen. She was watching me very intently while I was trying to take a photo of her.
I’m finished knitting the Sunny Days Shawlette, just love how the contrasting yak yarn turned out. I’m going to block it tomorrow…
I’ve had a lovely afternoon with my girls, shopping for a few Father’s Day gifts and just spending time together.
We’ve started replacing our light bulbs with LEDs, they are much more environmentally friendly and so economical, the original outlay for the bulbs is quite pricey though but these bulbs will benefit our power usage in the long run. Our house is quite dark during the winter months, so we tend to switch on a lights a lot more. Apparently, these bulbs can last for up to 20 years.
Hope you are having a restful Saturday.
