Simple Pleasures

Starting the New Year off  
with...

Market Spice tea from Seattle and new hand cozies knitted by my best friend Linda,



good luck comfort food, and memories of my Mom, today was also her birthday,



teaching myself to crochet...slowly, and with


 a little help from my sweet Shatzie, and










living in the moment, without letting go of my dream.

Simple pleasures are the best. Enjoy the memories of your mother, I'm sure they are very sharp with the anniversary of her birthday. Best wishes for the new year.

I also recently taught myself to crochet..its very relaxing.
Peachy is fascinated by the moving wool and becomes very annoying!

Your photos of Shatzie are adorable...so soft :-)

Hi Becca!

I just love the photos of Shatzie especially the shot of the paw! Beautiful photos!
I also like those fingerless mittens your girlfriend made. Is that tea like a Chai?
Hope your remembering your mom with smiles and not too sad. It is always so hard when their birthday comes around.
Keep the dream alive Becca!!

I love these pictures Becca. I cannot crochet, not very talented with needles, only sewing ones.
