I do have certain times of the day that I always knit. The main one is school pick up. So many things interfere with what could be a calm, cool pick up. There are a lot of kids, a lot of cars and a limited amount of parking. I’ve arranged with N where I will be when I pick him up. In order to be in that area I arrive about 30 minutes early and I use the time to listen to a podcast and knit. It is my me time.
The clocks were my mother’s. The mantle clock needs work but I haven’t brought it in for repair yet. My entire life my parents had a mantle clock that played Westminster chimes. This clock happens to be one they got when they bought a house. The owner had left it behind. The grandfather clock was a gift to my mother from my father in the 80’s. It is on loan in my dining room until H moves out and takes it with her. It too has Westminster chimes that play every 15 minutes. I don’t even notice the sound and have to specifically listen for it.
