breakfast chatter

Good morning. Won't you join me for breakfast today? It's my favorite meal, and I rarely get to share it with friends. Somehow people just don't want to get up with the sun and socialize. But a virtual breakfast, that's something we can all enjoy together on our own time. So pour yourself a cup of coffee and grab a slice of banana cake, no matter the time. Let's chat.

I got a row of knitting done on my yellow sweater this morning. I finished the rib and am working on the body. It feels like quite an accomplishment to finally be working on the next step. I had hoped to have my other sweater (remember that red one with lace) done by today, but I can't motivate myself to weave in the ends. Soon.

I'm feeling nervous about a job interview that I've got today. However, once I finish that I have an afternoon of baking ahead of me and a visit with my dad planned. Those are good rewards. 

An out-of-town friend is coming for a visit in a couple of weeks, so I've been looking for fun places to take her around town. So far I've decided on a free concert by the river, Churchill Downs, and cheap beers at a baseball game. 

K and I went for a walk last night and discovered nearby streets that we'd never been on. I love finding new places to see. 

The sun was bright apricot this morning. It rose, small and brilliant, over the rooftops. And now there are three little birds sitting on my windowsill. This bodes well. I can feel a good day coming. Can you?

How are you today? What's on your mind? 


  1. Good luck with the interview - I hope it goes well.
    The sewing/weaving in bit is where most of my knitting projects get stalled.
    Enjoy your breakfast!

  2. Good luck with the interview! :)

    I love slow and quiet mornings and breakfast with friends ... but I admit that my definition of "morning" is sometimes what other people would call "afternoon." :)

    (And thank you for the shawl complements! :) )

  3. Good morning! And good luck with your interview, sweetie! You'll rock their socks off I'm sure (then knit them a new pair :)

  4. Good luck with the interview! Which place called you? I'm sure you'll do wonderful!

  5. Hope the interview went well!

  6. I'm hoping you nailed that interview....I'm sure you did just fine. Weaving in ends is no fun. You have my sympathies!
