Mostly because Dec 1st brings vacation, I am ready. I wish I could say it was clever planning, but in reality it was a happy accident that I only have one full work week in December. Next year, it will be clever planning, I hope. I am working today, not technically December, but the first week of December, and it shall be a one day work weekas I fly off …

In between the work I have to do today, I have been knitting a few stitches here and there on a scarf that I have knit a time or eight before, the Traveling Woman, by Liz Abinante. I don’t know what it is about this pattern, but there is something very soothing about knitting it that turns me toward total relaxation. My brain engages, but it isn’t terribly complex. There …

I have joined in a 30 day challenge where you purge the number of things for what day it is, so day 1, 1 thing goes…day 2, 2 tthings go and so on and by the end of the month your things will be 465 less. I can’t believe I am putting this in writing, but accountability, even if only to myself, is helpful with this. Here’s where I am …

I have been contemplating our anniversary recently. There are too many dates to consider. We actually met online at the end of April…but then we met face to face on July 13 (I am pretty sure) and I moved to Texas on August 17th…then we had our commitment ceremony on July 16th because it was the closest Saturday…and now we have decided to get married for real on October 15th. …

On my last update, I didn’t mention the new girl in the house.  Her name is Trudy. Who would’ve thought there might be a different spelling (other than the admin at the vet’s office. I learned this morning that if I think she is being cute, I need to point and shoot, and fast. She is terribly frightened by the camera. Truth be told, she is terribly frightened by everything. …

Seems to be a theme running through my days. In an effort to try something new to streamline my blogging into one blog, I was clicking around the wordpress themes and uh-oh, I thought I lost all my content. A few updates and clicks later, and my wonderfully awesome wife had it fixed. But it was feeling a bit out of date to me. You see, Knitting Buddha the car …

I just learned the real reason for US postage to be going up…and up…and up… Through a link on one of the blogs I have been reading, I happened into the usps postage store. I thought it was a good way to get a variety of interesting stamps to use on the letters I am trying to get back into the habit of writing. The last time I tried to …

I find it most aggravating when the blogs I enjoy reading go unattended and here I am guilty as sin of blog neglect. It isn’t that I am feeling lazy about it. I want to blog. I just don’t have much to say. Life is good. Where’s the interest in that. It isn’t that I think only the drama or crap is of interest, but this time of life is …

You know, time. No one ever thinks they have any. Or always wonders where it’s gone. I just lost 3 minutes staring into space because as I was on my way to put up a new post here, you know, I just couldn’t remember what the name of my blog was. Three minutes! Gone! I can never reclaim them… In about fifteen minutes, I will be off for a long …

I started typing this post on Friday afternoon from work. It was a lull in my planned to-dos and I was feeling mighty post ready. Then I actually logged in and was feeling less post ready. There was total ambiguity tied up and around posting. Was it the end of the year 2010I wanted to write about? The eve of 2011? Goals and aspirations? regrets? Apparently it was none of …

I just posted this on my fb page, and I am adding it here to maybe broaden the audience. April is National Letter Writing Month. I will enter everyone I receive a letter from between now and May 7th into a drawing for something fabulous hand made by me! Who needs my address?

 
 

I got a note from my mom via my aunt’s fb page that said the following: “WOW!!!!!!I just read about Sedona.. Is this a ppublished article or part of a book. One typo I found. It wouldn’t be me if I did not have a criticsism (spelling) For the word quite it is wuiet. Jus t so you know .” I would go through the entire note and hilite all …

That’s how long I have been a mom…25 years…Chef Will is a quarter of a century old today. He is meeting me here this morning and we are taking his car for an oil change and inspection to see if it can make the trip to NY. I so don’t want to make that drive again… Will is moving back to NY in April and I am driving with him …

I have been feeling like it’s time for a change. The old blog has 821 posts since July of 2003. I might still post there from time to time, but it isn’t likely. I will leave it active because I like the archival nature of it. That’s nearly 7 years of my life. I feel that the past year has grounded some changes that have been brewing for quite some …
