Comments: I LOVE this pattern!

Yesterday, just before sunset, we had a nice old fashioned rip roaring thunder storm. Twas very exciting. After the storm, we had a rainbow. It was so beautiful cos the sun was underneath the clouds, making them a strange sort of yellow/pink/lavender color, and then this beautiful bright rainbow appeared. We could see the whole bow from one end to the other. I took pictures.

Mother Nature put on quite a show.

Today my daughter Ruth is at her very first job interview. Lets all keep our fingers crossed cos she really needs a job. Not for the money so much as for the confidence building. Sweet Hubby and I are working hard to encourage her to get one for this reason. Nothing makes a person feel more independent than a real salary paying job.

She wants to work at Silverwood Theme Park in the worst way. They have an opening in one of the restaurants for a dishwasher.

It's going to be a beautiful day today. I think I'm gonna go sit on the deck and work on my shawl.

Have a great day!

ETA 1:00pm

My daughter is gainfully employed. Hurray!!!!


  1. Congrats to your daughter on the new job! Love the socks - gorgeous!

  2. What beautiful pictures! Isn't nature a great artist? Thanks for taking the pictures and sharing the beauty of where you live.

    The socks are super. I see a blue ribbon in your future if you save them for the fair.

    Congratulations to daughter on her new job.

  3. Your socks are stunning! I do love the looks of that pattern although I have never knit it. How well to they fit? Did you find the pot of gold at the end of that rainbow? Congrats to you daughter!
