Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love."
Hamilton Wright Mabie
It was a quiet day today. I tossed the Christmas roses into the bin, but happily, the seeded eucalyptus is still hanging on. I potted some Narcissus bulbs from an early December trip to Trader Joes after being reminded of them by the glorious display of blooms at the garden last night. There is nothing like wandering through a humid conservatory in the midst of winter.
One of the best thing about Christmas holidays is the time to leisurely do whatever catches my fancy. I read a little of my first book of 2017, Miss Buncle's Book. I also bought a pattern for my new yarn, wound it into a ball, and gathered up my stitch markers and needles. I'm going to be knitting a Song of the Sea cowl and I can't wait to cast on!
