I thank those of you who shared Clint's "final journey" with us. I hope you found inspiration and encouragement as we shared the good and bad moments over the last months until Clint found his way home to Jesus on December 3, 2004. As we journey through the next season of our lives, perhaps something I share here will help others who are also making this painful journey.
I was still knitting at 12:30am and was ready to start the fifth yarn color on the cowl. I don’t especially care for vertical stripes on a cowl but this is what Hula Hut wants so… It was a short night…..again. Ann told me about a show she has been watching called “The Durrell in Corfu” - “a series based on the autobiographical novel by Gerald Durrell, the naturalist, explorer, writer and conservationist, which tells the story of his family settling on Corfu island in 1933 after his father's untimely death. They lived there until 1939. His mother was rather eccentric and allowed the 8 to 14-year-old Gerald to keep wildlife as pets. He also made friends among the local humans.” It certainly has some beautiful photography! I watched some episodes while knitting on the Hula Hut cowl. By time I stopped to cook a steak for dinner, I had joined the sixth color. When I finish knitting that section, I will go back repeat all six colors. As 7:30 rolls past, Bill is expecting a guy who wants to look at the trailer. When he was out in the garage this afternoon, he spied a squirrel up in the rafters and at some point, it ran behind the sheetrock on the wall. I hope it doesn’t have a nest in there somewhere! Let’s see if I can finish the sixth color section on the cowl before bedtime.
