slippers and clients

I'm still in finishing mode ~ Sort of. When Khi was wrapped in my sweater, he was starting a cold that turned into an infection. So I've been busy taking care of him.

I did finish Kaity's slippers.

I realized my mother's birthday was coming, so I started her a pair of slippers too. Hers are 1 strand of pink and 1 strand of dove grey. Her actual birthday is today but we will see her over the week end. I have 1 slipper finished and have cast on for the other.

All of the Rhinebeck reports have been wonderful! DH and I want to go one year. We plan to drive there on Friday and spend the week end. Then we want to go on to other places near there that we've never seen, and come home the next week end. It would be great if it could happen next year, but I have no idea what next week holds, let alone a year from now.

I have a great new client. She isn't even pregnant yet. She's just getting everything in line so she can have her perfect pregnancy!

It's interesting to me how widely the definition of "Perfect Pregnancy" varries from woman to woman. In the end, everyone wants the same result. But getting there is different for each of us.

That's the whole Doula philosophy. Women supporting women in the way they need to be supported. Not according to some "standard of care" or agenda. I love being a doula. It is such an honor to be invited into some of the most significant and life altering chapters in women's lives.

I love when you write about being a doula. It is such a remarkable job. And the slippers are cute. I hope you get up to Rhinebeck. It was so much fun. Woodstock is nearby and it is a cute town too.

Hey Angi -- speaking of birth, keep your fingers crossed for my secretary, Shirley and her daughter, Rebecca -- they are right now over at the hospital where Rebecca is about to give birth to Shirley's first grandbaby. . .
