clump-free, knotty, and colored

Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. Rudi has been okayed to bear full weight on his bad leg. This has given him more freedom of motion and more confidence in trying new maneuvers. This evening he cleaned the cat boxes before I got home.

2. The cables on my current sock are the most complex I’ve ever done, but form a really cool Celtic knot. Not only that, but I, realizing I’d miscrossed several cables a couple rows later, was able to drop the relevant stitches down, reorient the stitches to the right side of the fabric, and fix the wonky section without having to rip back to the mistake. I feel like a pro.

3. I haven’t painted my nails since the Christmas polish wore off. I’ve been meaning to for ages, but couldn’t find the time to sit with hands still long enough for even my quick-dry polish to set. Saturday morning, while Rudi was out, I followed up a few household chores with a painting session. I forget that the extra time does really make that much of a difference in my mood and that other people like to see the colors I’ve picked, too. (This time, they’re electric blue, salmon, lime green, mauve, and terracotta.)

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world this week?

I’m so glad to hear that Rudi is back on his feet. And hooray for colorful nails!
