Back to basics

Yeah I am back!  I haven’s  blogged for about a week I have been working so much that I haven’t had time to blog, knit or even walk my dogs.

Ferris and Baloo are happy after their walks!

I hate working so much but as my Mom always said make hay while the sun shines. I got up this morning and was looking at Ferris and Baloo watching me get ready for work ( they always look so sad ) and I thought everything suffers at home when I am gone so much.

My goal as I have written before is to be able to have my home store Henrietta’s Hippo  get off the ground and eventually open a brick and mortar store. My dream is to have both  a store on line and my home store. Things are moving along I  have hired a marketing company for Henrietta’s and I have two days off. I feel like I have a free get out of jail card. I walked the boys this evening made dinner for my girls and now I am blogging , life is good. When life gets overwhelming getting back to the basics puts things in perspective.The simple things in life are sometimes the very best.I finally finished a pair of leg warmers I have been knitting.

I made them for my daughter’s girlfriend she is a dancer. I am going to ship them to her, but decided to show them off first. This is my last pair of gift socks,  from now on all of my knitting is for the store. I have so much yarn and ideas I am getting really excited. I realize knitting is such a creative outlet for me. When I knit I am truly at my best, relaxed and full of joy. Keep watching the socks are coming!

From our home to yours
