1. Learning about a “Silver Alert“. The power of a crowd (when used for good) continues to impress and please me.
2. Playing in the ocean with my family. The last time I was in the ocean was probably 15 years ago; as soon as the big waves started crashing in to me today, I started laughing and feeling like a teenager.
3. Learning how to knit properly, thanks to my mom’s patient instruction. After spending just 15 minutes watching her and being coached by her, I was able to successfully cast on, knit, and purl. I’m happy that after several years of trying to find someone to teach me this skill in a way I can understand, the person who was able to do it (with incredible ease) was my mom – and I love that now, every time I knit an item, she will be part of it.
