It was wonderful having my dad come to visit! Alas, I dropped him off at the bus station yesterday morning, and he should be settling back into his life in Mexico even as we speak.

My family in general is full of sharp, clever people, and my dad in particular is witty, charming, and frighteningly smart. My penchant for slightly menacing whimsy was definitely his doing, while I’m still working to attain his level of relaxed, things-as-they-are cheerfulness (which may only be possible through the use of mind-altering drugs).

Before he left, he gave me an early Christmas present–some earrings from a pearl farm down the road from his house, wonderfully irregular and a great addition to my year-round jewelry.

Thanks for coming to stay, Daddio, and we’ll be seeing you again soon.

  1. Love your mix of textures and colors! Sounds like a fun visit with your dad. I am making my first visit to Mexico later this month! Sounds like you have been there a bunch. Neato!

  2. Scarf! I’ve been eyeing scarves like that for a while, but not sure if they are for me. There are a couple knitting patterns I’ve seen, so I think I may whip one up and see what happens.

  3. I’m now completely obsessed with the phrase “slightly menacing whimsy” hahaha. Thanks.

    You have been doing an admirable job of creative pattern mixing here on the blog! Pattern mixing never comes this easily to me. I always feel like a mess, or like I’m just doing it like everyone else (stripes and florals… yeah).
