ON THE BACK BURNER

March 16

Was it just the other day when I foolishly said that I haven't worn my favorite sweater yet this year. I will wear it today, for sure. The sweater is one knitted by the late Mother in law of a dear friend. It is a plain, dark blue ,long sleeved sweater that has been around the block. I don't know how old it is,or who might have worn it before I took possession of it. It's just a sweater, but when the few times that I get a day cold enough to wear it, it feels special. It has an identity. It isn't just off of a rack. A real person knitted it.That makes it special enough , but when I think that I was the one lucky enough to be the right size for it and lucky enough to even have been offered it by someone who loved this woman.. Makes it really something to cherish.Thank you B.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
