So Sad...

I couldn't sleep last night so I got up and watched coverage of the Minneapolis 35W bridge collapse. I grew up in a north suburb of Saint Paul. Interstate 35W is within a mile of the lake I lived on and I have been on that bridge many, many times. I am really sad for the families waiting to hear news of their missing relatives. Just horrible.

No, I didn't knit last night, too busy watching the news and putting the third coat of tung oil on our box project. What is the box project? Do you really want to know? My husband and I are making a box out of bird's eye maple as an alternative to a memorial urn for my mom. Actually, my husband is the woodworker, I took part in some of it, like participating in the design and finishing. He is an artist, my mom would be have been please to know whe had such quality and beauty as her final resting place. Maybe she does. It will be a comfort to my family to have a gorgeous focal point to reflect on. I will take a picture.
