How was your weekend? I’m grateful to say that mine was really lovely.
Saturday morning I attended a bridal shower brunch for my sweet friend Charleen. All of us girls did our part for the décor (I made a cute banner and some garland) and it all turned out really nice.
On sunday, I baked some blueberry muffins (which did not last long; Brian ate FOUR in one day!)…
…and made this delicious vegan ‘caprese’ sandwich (avocado, basil, tomato, salt & pepper on Wegman’s ‘Marco Polo’ bread, toasted).
Last, but not least, I finished my Chevron Mitts! Pictures coming soon!
I used the leftover yarn from the mitts to knit an adorable pair of Saartje’s Booties. This is one of the most popular (free) patterns on Ravelry (over 15,000 projects!) but this is my first pair. They were not made for anyone in particular, although of course I’m saving them for the future. 🙂
The weather was mostly rainy and chilly on Sunday, so we took a little trip up to the boardwalk to watch the waves crashing in the mist. We had fun pointing out all of the beautiful colors we saw and listening to the sounds of the ocean. It reminded me of this quote:
“There is a great solitude about such a shore. The woods are never solitary- they are full of whispering, beckoning, friendly life. But the sea is a mighty soul, forever moaning of some great, unshareable sorrow, which shuts it up into itself for all eternity. We can never pierce its infinite mystery- we may only wander, awed and spell-bound, on the outer fringes of it. The woods call to us with a hundred voices, but the sea has only one- a mighty voice that drowns out our souls in its majestic music. The woods are human, but the sea is of the company of the archangels.”
-L.M. Montgomery, Anne’s House of Dreams
