Sometimes, it's the little things.

Good morning, everyone!

I've been catching up on email this morning (a many-times-a-day task as I have two online stores, belong to several online forums, and all of my friends and family are online) and of course that means catching up on Ravelry in between replies. I looked over some RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) lists on that board, and found a nice thank-you from someone I recently RAKed. Then, I marked the other folks I'm RAKing this month. While I was doing that, I found a post on the Peaches and Creme board about their upcoming workshops in August, some of which are being led by my on-line friend, Briley! I was excited! What's not to love? I'd get to meet Briley, go to and shop in a real yarn mill (Elmore-Pisgah, some of my favorite yarns), AND take my first real class... with Briley! I'm hoping to get some other local fiber artists together and carpool up. Check here for more details.

After that, I discovered the library function of Ravelry. Now, this may not seem like a smile-inducing event, but it really did make me happy to list my four little books up there. I simply adore reading patterns and I have alot printed out from online and some magazines I've been gifted, but I only have four books (actually, five, but one isn't listed on Rav yet). So, seeing them up there just made me happy and made me want to go and read through them.

So, those little, everyday events so far today have put me in a good mood, making me happy in their simplicity and joy. Sometimes, it really is the little things.

I don't know how I missed this post! Are you coming to the workshop? It would be so much fun to meet you!
