Sir Gawain

For those of you who know me, you're not surprised I'm fascinated with Sir Gawain. I have studied Celtic lore for over 40 years and I'm 50. I checked out my first books from the library at age six. I've never lost the yearning for the Quest. At present, I'm re-reading "Sir Gawain: Knight of the Goddess" by John Matthews. Sir Gawain is a fascinating book. I'm doing research for NaNoWriMo that starts in three weeks from today and the subject may be a form of Gawain. I can only hope that I can do the subject justice.

A Simple Sunday

Today was a lovely, quiet family day. Watching football with Holly and Sly became the focus or really, playing with Sylvester was my focus. I enjoyed watching him learn - ranging from him using cool little Melissa and Doug tools to saying some states and coloring them on awesome mats to watching him figure out the trigger system on his dad's weed eater (no, it wasn't charged). The most precious moment involved him cuddling me, letting me hold him to me and he used his foot to push off, creating a rocking back and forth as we sat/cuddled together in the floor while I sang nursery rhymes and songs to him. That's like a gift. My soul just glows with love for all of them. I'm a very blessed woman.
