|New "Denim" Sweater|
Today marks one year since I officially retired! I can't imagine that one whole year has gone by! It flew! I feel that I didn't accomplish quite as much as I would have liked, but, I have enjoyed the slower pace of life. I could really get used to it! LOL.
Today, I finished sewing up the sweater I made with the 100% wool yarn I bought on clearance sale, on September 19. The wool was in a color called "Denim" and it was on sale for $3.47 per ball. I bought five balls of the wool, but used only four for the sweater. I started knitting this sweater on September 26 (had made a note of it on my blog post on that day). $14 and three weeks is not too bad for a wool sweater. I didn't block the sweater as I rarely do so.
I'll probably use the remaining ball of wool on another project. Haven't quite decided what that would be, but, I like to have a knitting project to work on, especially in the evenings, when I watch TV.
I found out, today, that the friend who offered to bring the beef curry to the prayer gathering is unable to attend the prayer gathering, after all, due to a prior engagement. Not a problem, though. I have plenty of time to buy the beef and make the curry. I still don't know exactly how many people will show up for the prayer gathering. It could be anywhere from 5 to 15! Yes, I've asked people to let me know if they are able to attend; so far, only three people have confirmed that they will be attending.
I watered the garden, both front and back, earlier this evening. I am planning to have a relaxed rest of the evening, making a birthday card.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being retired!
- Knowing how to knit
- My new sweater
- Water for the garden
- A sunny, warm day
Today's joyful activity was finishing the sweater!
How was your Tuesday? What are your plans for Wednesday?
