* Grateful that I have lists of knit projects to look forward to amidst all the uncertainty that is my life now.
* Fresh new mechanical pencils, each with portrait of an animal on it---foxes, owls, raccoons.
* "The cancer was hideous. It takes the wind out of your sails and I don't know what the future holds, if anything. You feel so ghastly, you wouldn't mind dying a lot of the time. The last couple of years have been a write-off, though I'm beginning to feel like a person now. My energy is coming back. I ought to pull myself together a bit."
Dame Maggie Smith
* Thinking of everything that is on my plate now. There is no certainty in the outcome of anything. And somehow I am on my feet. Deep breaths.
