serendipity and knitting the wind

aug 13 129

in the very idea of serendipity is a kind of hope, even an expectation, that we can turn accidents of fortune to good account and make of them some knowledge that would have been inaccessible to us had we done no more than find what er were looking for.

i have been enjoying reading over at Knitting the Wind.  i made my way over initially to read  Sarah’s response to a piece Susan wrote about what it is children need to experience each day.  at the bottom of each post, there are suggestions of other posts “you might also like.”  and i did like them!  i can’t wait to try these apple muffins or these honey oat cookies!


  1. I am on tech support for my mp3 player on hold — I am enjoying the little pictures that are on the side of your blog. Wonderful memories.

  2. Hello and thank you for the mention 🙂 I hope you enjoy the recipes, they are old favourites of ours. Blessings for your day. Sarah xx

  3. i was *hoping* you might make your way over here, Sarah.

    i can’t wait for the coming of fall–cooler weather, cultured buttermilk, and these treats to try. you are certainly going to be a part of our homeschool rhythm.

    peace keep you and yours!
