Very shortly after last week's inauguration, the memes with Bernie Sanders and his mittens went viral. I saw so many and they all made me laugh. My friend, Erika, even sent one that she had made using a photo of my Night Blossoms quilt.
Here are a couple of my favorites. Especially this one, because we are Big Bang Theory fans...
I was stunned at the beauty of First Lady Jill Biden's inauguration coat and dress. The embroidered flowers were from every state and territory, and on her dress, the Delaware flower is positioned at the heart level. So meaningful and beautiful. When Mark and I were in Washington, DC, in May 2019, one of my favorite museum exhibits was that of the dresses worn by the First Ladies. I hope to be able to see this one in person someday.

Aaron and I are attempting to learn to knit socks. Our first hurdle is learning "Judy's Magic Loop." We watched a three-minute video. Over and over. We asked Charlotte to help stop and start the video, but she said she didn't have that kind of time. I think it took about an hour. At least, it felt like that long. I'm not sure we completely have it figured out yet, but we're giving it another go tonight. We are trying the two-a-time toe-up. Wish us luck.
We have a lot of mourning doves in our neighborhood, but Mark has been following a bird who spends a lot of time in our yard. He is sure it is something other than a mourning dove, as it is noticeably larger. When it sings, it sounds different from the mourning doves we are used to, and its chest puffs out. Any birders out there?
