i skipped a couple of days sketches with daily life getting in the way but, today, i managed a sketch of one of the cane chairs while watching a movie with aaron and bradley.

we had already seen marley and me at the cinema and loved it and, yes, i sobbed my heart out yet again. such a beautiful movie and, as far as i can tell, it was based on a true story. if you haven't seen it yet, make sure you have some tissues at the ready. i must say i'm relieved my cody isn't mischievious like the dog in the movie. i'm not sure i would have coped as well as they seemed to
SACRED LIFE SUNDAY
even the simple moments can be sacred ones
as i've been knitting lately, aaron expressed a desire to learn so here we are.
i cherish these special moments with my kids
not the best of photos because it was taken early this evening when the flash was needed but still special nonetheless
i was actually surprised at how quickly aaron picked it up. i had taught bradley and aaron how to do french knitting some months ago and they have been thoroughly enjoying it so i guess this was the next step for aaron. an art friend of mine told me today that her father would happily knit socks for them when they were kids. i think that's wonderful! my uncle was in the british army in his youth, quite the male-chauvinist too, and he knitted. my great grandfather was a tailor back when clothes and suits were sewn by hand from scratch. mum told me that dad even learned to knit though he had the habit of ending up with a lot more stitches than what he started with. lol it seems that handcrafts run in our family, even among the men, and i'm quite proud of that fact.
i'll be back tomorrow with mantra monday and photo for the week.
love, light and peace
