The busier I am, the more I have to blog about, but the less time I have to write about it! Catch 22.
Friday morning, I had a delivery of yarn from elann. Yippee! However I couldn’t do anything with it until Sunday night because of other commitments. I have photographed it and started swatching for the planned sweater (from the Stitch ‘n Bitch book) so will say more about that tomorrow.
First thing Friday, I took the car in for an oil change. As soon as that was done, we had to go out to a friend’s house for a visit. I took my sock knitting and drank tea while the boys played, trampolined, pretended to shoot each other……you know, the usual.
As soon as I returned home, I had to get dinner sorted, then Tai Chi Man and I went out for the evening. Tai Chi Man had told me about a visit to our city of Mother Meera, an Indian woman. She was coming to give Darshan (and we didn’t really know what that entailed, but we signed up anyway)!
It involved a couple of hundred people filling a room at a local winery and taking turns to kneel at Mother Meera’s feet and receive her (silent) blessing. She placed her hands on our temples for a few seconds, then looked into our eyes for another few seconds, then we returned to our seats. Much of the rest of the two hours was spent meditating. I picked up a sheet as we left. It tells me that Mother Meera is an incarnation of the Divine Mother and that the Darshan blessing is a bestowal of Light, Love and Grace, regardless of spiritual beliefs. Sounds all right to me – I can always do with an injection of divine light (and I’m being sincere).
So that was Friday. Saturday is getting its own post….
