Do you feel inspired by kindness? Do you feel exhilarated by the helping hands of strangers?
I do! I don't know what's in the air but today is smooth sailing and every single person is smiling at me. The bus driver stopped to wait for me, a strong lady carried my stroller up the stairs, the girls at the counter happily babysat Baby while I had a doctors appointment and then I had truffle pasta with rocket salad for lunch.
Now, is that a lucky day? Or am I myself more open for happiness and friendly encounters today? Is it 'fate' or 'instant karma'? No matter what, I very much enjoy it :-)
As for the knitting: I've finished the Little Curry Cardigan and I'm almost done with the cabled vest. No Progress has been made concerning the cowl (maybe this spring weather will prevent it altogether). I've started another dolls cardi in purple - three times over so far. I think I'm now finally on the right track. We will see. I'm curious myself how it will turn out.
Baby is sleeping in her cot today, not in my lap like last week. The teething has stopped - without the appearance of a tooth. (More curiosity from my side here).
I don't find much time for reading These days but I've rediscovered poetry. Do you ever read poetry? I've done it a lot while studying literature but not much since then. Obviously it's a slow process and a different way than reading fiction / prose. But that's quite nice - just to take one poem before going to bed, to read it slowly, maybe even read it out loud, to taste it, to ponder it... I'm reading poems of Conrad Ferdinand Meyer.
Heute bin ich von Freundlichkeit und glücklichen Begegnungen gesegnet und inspiriert. Der Busfahrer hält extra nochmal an, eine starke junge Frau trägt mir den Buggy die Treppe rauf, beim Arzt freuen sich die lieben Mädels am Empfang richtig darüber, aufs Baby aufzupassen. Habe ich heute Gluck? Oder sehe ich das Gluck heute nur besonders deutlich? Egal - ich genieße!
Die rotviolette Puppenjacke stricke ich zum dritten Mal. Ja, wer ausprobiert muss auch mal rippeln, gell? Aber jetzt fühlt es sich richtig an. Immerhin ist das curry-gelbe Jäckchen fertig, die Zopf-Weste fast und ich lese - einer wiedergefundenen Gedicht-Liebe folgend - Conrad Ferdinand Meyer.
linking with Ginny - happy yarn along :-)
