Monthly Archives: February 2019


“And February was so long that it lasted into March
And found us walking a path alone together
You stopped and pointed and you said “that’s a crocus”
And I said “what’s a crocus?” and you said “it’s a flower”
I tried to remember but I said “what’s a flower?”
You said “I still love you”

Hot Cocoa

“The superiority of chocolate, both for health and nourishment, will soon give it the same preference over tea and coffee in America which it has in Spain.”
Thomas Jefferson

Knit and Purl

“It is some kind of miracle that all knitting is constructed of only two stitches: knit and purl. Sure, you throw in some yarn overs, and sometimes you knit the stitches out of order, but when it really comes down to it, knitting is simplicity.”
Stephanie Pearl-McPhee

Esme with an E

“Isn’t it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive–it’s such an interesting world. It wouldn’t be half so interesting if we know all about everything, would it? There’d be no scope for imagination then, would there?”
Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
