First, I crocheted a long row of chain stitches, using a size N (10 mm) crochet hook:
|Long Strip of Chain Stitches|
|Length of Row of Chain Stitches|
|First Row of Double Crochet|
|Turning at the End|
I had a fairly quiet, relaxed day. Daughter went back to Berkeley, today. I dropped her off at the airport, watched some Wimbledon tennis and Olympics trials and news, of course, on TV, and started crocheting the rag rug. My neighbor called me in the morning and one of my cousins called in the evening. Daughter had a safe flight and a safe trip from the airport to her apartment. We video chatted, later in the evening.
|Ten Additional Books|
"On the tenth day of July Bless did declutter
Ten additional books"
I loved Noddy books when I was a child. When my daughter was a little child, I asked one of my cousins who lived in Britain to buy me some Noddy books for daughter. She enjoyed reading them, but she was never as "into" Noddy as I had been. I held on to the books because they reminded me of my childhood, but it is time to let them go.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Daughter had a safe trip back to Berkeley
- A quiet, restful day
- Time to do hobbies
- Pleasant weather
- Phone calls from neighbor and cousin
How was your Sunday?
