The Homer Spit and mountains. Strange.. in all of the photos there aren't any Eagles. Usually they are all over the place.
Knitting: A full set on the Sarah Blanche Scarf. And now to make a new ball of yarn for the scarf- that is a daunting task as I will have to make one ball and then wind 2 strands together to get one bigger ball. Is this where a swift comes in handy?
I found this link today; Wendy's Modest Dress. It has stuck with me ALL day. Now why has it been on my mind? Get ready for some serious ramblings. Modest clothes: I have changed the way that I dress in the last few years (DH is VERY conservative!) and so I don't wear Daisy Duke shorts anymore or mini skirts. My dresses are longer, shirts no longer show much cleavage (if any). I do like the fit and flare type dress (haven't worn any for almost 3 yrs. due to pregnancy and nursing). My work shorts are less then an inch above my knee, (and it bothers me that my supervisor is wearing "cheer shorts"- very unprofessional) I wear tank tops because of the heat (regular t-shirts I get to hot in). Now where am I headed with all of this? Can I dress more conservatively? yes, I can drink more water and wear T-shirts (large size). Swim suit- I can wear shorts along w/my neoprene tunic (which is over a black regulation one piece swimsuit). Bumpkins even wears longer dresses- the cute 1940 and 50's dresses were really SHORT!
That is well and good; but what about head coverings? Head coverings- like the Amish and Mennonite? Yep.. 1 Corinthians. Now my thoughts- after reading several testimonies about women who wear head coverings, I thought whatever happened to hats? Back in the 50's women wouldn't go out of their houses or even to church w/o a hat on. Was wearing a hat back then just fashionable or was there some subliminal biblical message going on? Are head coverings really a necessary sign of submission to your spouse or to God? At work I am required to have my hair back from my face- but cannot wear a head scarf (bet I could wear a snood though).
Just my thoughts - would love to have your take on this whole thing and thanks for hanging in there w/me tonight.
Weather: sunny and 60's (this morning was cold... 39 - and I know that it was colder than that just before sunrise).
