hello

I'm peeking out from my blog break. I've been so sick (with a cold) that it was a well timed break. I anticipate this cold is going to linger another week, though. Bummer. I'm trying to get a bit more sleep and to focus on increasing my healthy lifestyle habits so I don't get sick so much!! Saturday was super-lazy. I did muster up enough energy to make this healthy banana bread from The Blue Heron Ranch cookbook (one of my faves). If you have the cookbook, I recommend increasing the sweetener just a bit. I switched it from honey to maple syrup and kept the same amount but halved everything else (to make just one loaf). It's still minimally sweet but more popular with the family. Next time I'll add nuts.
The only project I'm working on right now is this shawl. I'm having so much fun with it. It's a kick working with such tiny yarn and needles!
And there were plenty of pots of tea.

Sunday was a rainy road trip with the family for a kids with cancer event. Unfortunately it rained, so not as fun as we had hoped! It was fun to be together though.

Happy Monday morning to everyone!

Good to "see" you again. Your shawl looks great! My birthday is in a couple of weeks, so I've decided to treat myself to some new yarn and knit myself a shawl.
Hope you feel better soon.

I love the colors you chose for your shawl! I hope you rest and feel better soon.

Rest up! I love your shawl pattern & yarn selection. ?: the sweet dreams card deck? Can you give me a little more info about it? I think I saw it somewhere before & really should have gotten it but forgot why I liked it so much!

I hope you feel 100% very quickly!

Happy Monday! I do hope your cold passes quickly. I made that shawl too and wore it a bunch this past season. I would like to make a larger one too.

Sorry to hear you've been sick.
I'm curious what those Sweet Dream cards are on table. Blessings?
Hope you're feeling better soon!
