Beanies...Oh Baby!

It happened.

I purchased an article of clothing from Walmart.

It’s not that I'm a snob. (Okay I was.) One of those has-no-money snobs, living in a neighborhood she couldn’t afford.

We’re the worst kind.

I’m currently a volunteer Event Planner for a non-profit organization. (Good-bye Europe.) I visited Walmart to ask the Community Involvement Coordinator for a donation.

She gave it to me.

I don’t hate Walmart anymore.

I bought a turtleneck with matching beanie as an expression of gratitude.

AND a circular loom. I’m knitting beanies for the entire family.

My nephews and I knitted for hours.

Brody (age 11) whispered: “Charmaine, I’m so glad you’re here.”

Love is simple. It requires little…involvement...and respect.

An 11 yr. old whispering that he is glad that you are there - that is a great compliment!

What do you think concerning adding some more illustrations? I don’t want to offend anyone, blog is really great. But as I know humans acquire info much more efficient when there are some useful images.

Glad to see you've gotten "back in the saddle"; hope it isn't just about blogging! That photo of the cattle with their heads all wrapped up is amazing. Thanks for sharing it.
