A week of gratitudes, one per day
I'm grateful for my friend Hannah, for the chance to catch up over the phone lines and across the digital world. She's pretty great. I appreciate her for cutting off my march in endless circles by asking a few important questions, breaking up the muddiness and letting in some light.
She really good at this..it's kind of what she does.
How fun, it was our friend Jessyka's 30th birthday!
If you want to hear more details or see more photos, she wrote a lovely post on her blog, Let's Talk About Beer!
I'm glad the rain held off just one more day so we could shake it up a bit and have a get together down the river. I appreciate our great crew of friends here, who could happily entertain themselves all day long on the sandy river's edge and in the water.

It's been a people week I guess! Monday we got a surprise visit from one of our more adventurous friends, Scott Peters, who had just finished taking a group rafting down the Copper River with the St Elias Guides (One of the calmer things he's done recently.) You can read more about him finishing the Alaska Wilderness Classic and his frost bit toes on his blog, Atalkata. Or see him here at 18,000 feet at Everest Base Camp
We met up for a drink and it was nice to check in and see what the last year had brought for all of us. His stories are pretty inspiring!
I had a patient today that is doing so well, their worries, their symptoms, their discomfort, all resolving and their life distinctly better for it. I'm grateful to have an opportunity to influence that outcome for a person. Acupuncture is sometimes great medicine.
I was very excited about our unusual job of picking Wesley up from daycare while his mom worked late. It was a fun reminder of how very un-childproof our house is and that it is much easier to put rain boots on a kid then try to prevent them from jumping in puddles.
I also appreciate how great Heath is with all of our little friends. Him & Wesley have a pretty good time.
I'm sure this is Wesley's preferred position for travel.
Oh Yeah, Day Off for the 4th of July! That was pretty great in itself. I ended up working on Snow Capped Yarns all day and finished winding a new batch of yarn. I delivered 61 skeins of yarn to the Net Loft where Dotty & I had a power session, photographing and plotting for the next release.
I can't show you the brand new yarn yet, but does is suffice to say that I LOVE it. We're deciding on a release day, but I think it might be as soon as this weekend so you won't have to wait long. To tide you over here's a skein of cashmere silk fingering weight dyed in Alpenglow that's headed for the website!
So that brings us to today, which has really just begun for me. It's 8:53 am and I've been writing this post since I woke up. I'm terribly grateful to have a project day...maybe put that second coat of paint on the ceiling and put away the laundry. I've still been listening to The Desire Map, and loving it, so that will make dishwashing actually enjoyable! It's been such a full week, I can handle another stormy day.
