winter warmth.....


so far from our minds right now as we swelter our way through summer. And really the hottest months are yet to come! Ack! So why in the world am I thinking ahead to winter warmth here in sunny California? Well, you can chalk it up to our current economy and how scary the price of everything is becoming. All of us are now having to consider how we spend our hard earned dollars a whole more carefully. The price of everything has gone through the roof. Many of us have re-invented the victory garden not only for economies sake but for our food safety. We are returning to our Little House On The Prairie roots. If you can learn how to do it for yourself. This has always been my mantra. As we learn how to take care of ourselves again, it is also time to look around and see who is getting left behind. Who needs a helping hand. Along this vein, I found the Nest project in Soulemama's post today. Nest has started a knitting ring to connect knitters with people in need in Maine. Coldest of the cold here in the contiguous 48, many people in maine are going to have a hard time affording their heating oil this winter. This is not a luxury for them and many may not be able to eat and stay warm. So do what you can, knit something warm for a complete stranger. The details are listed on the nest blog (follow the link) but the big one is the deadline is september 1st. Please help in whatever way you can. Not feeling up to knitting, donate some yarn out of your stash to someone who can.

I will leave you with this thought...

whatever you put out into the universe will return to you threefold.
