Celebrations, October 17, 2014 – of Sheep, knitters and heaven…

Welcome to our Celebration of the Small Things, a blog hop started by Viklit (address below) to pause to appreciate the small things that make us smile.  It doesn’t have to be something big, which is why she chose the name.  Whatever makes you smile, whatever has happened that you like to savor or share.  If you want to join, the details are at the bottom of tis page.

I’m celebrating a bit of anticipation:  I am attending the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival (click for the site), held in the pretty town of Rhinebeck NY.  I knit from time to time, have lots of friends who knit, crochet, weave, spin, raise sheep, shear sheep, always have knitting needles stuck behind their ears, and generally act like crazy people having a lot of fun. 

I enjoy strolling and watching the  people, and fingering yarn and dreaming of maybe taking some time from editing and polishing The Orphan’s Tale, Book II to take that gorgeous tone-on-tone RED yarn and actually KNIT something…  Sigh.  There’s a fairway with hot dogs and fries…  And I don’t have to drive there for the first time in years.

I’ve so enjoyed this hop, I decided to post a little photographic interpretation of a favorite quote.  I wish the photos were actually mine, but I hope they make you smile.

Have a wonderful weekend!

You gotta dance like there’s nobody looking…
Love like you’ll never be hurt…
Sing like there’s nobody listening
Live like it’s heaven on earth
