Gratitude and a new scarf

Hem your blessings with thankfulness so they don't unravel. ~Author Unknown

I swore several years ago i would slow down, keep my priorities and give thanks everyday for my many blessing and for the most part i do pretty good until the last couple of month that is. This summer my work became very busy and i found myself falling into a place i swore I'd never go back to. Thankfully having a crummy back does have its advantages i guess in that it doesn't allow me to spend to much time there.

You know the place where you spend all of your time at work. The place where you find you have no time for anything and when you do find a few minutes of your own your to dang tired and unmotivated to anything. Yep that place. I don't know about you but i find when i lose focus and stop appreciating the little things in my "every days" i tend to see things more negativly. Seeing this quote today was a great reminder and just what i needed. My life is so good and i really have no complaints.

The air is changing and the warm days here have given way to cool nights. I am really enjoying this time as we transition from summer to fall. The creative juices are starting to flow and since i have backed down my working hours a bit i have had time to knit again at the end of the day.

Here are the three way scarf pics i promised a few weeks ago and the out takes.
Love the pattern and it was easy peasy to knit up
