Its good to take a moment and take stock of what is going on around you. Pip over at Meet Me at Mikes does this on a regular basis and I thought I’d join in too.

Enjoying: The cooler weather and the chance to get a few hand knits out to wear.
Waiting: For next weekend when I get to catch up with a group of my cousins in the Hunter Valley. We do it every 2 years. It’s going to be great!
