Balls in the air, balls on the ground

There’s just been so much juggling recently.  It’s easy to let a few things fall to the floor.  For the first time in at least twelve years, I dropped the ball on my First Day of Fall tradition. I didn’t make the pumpkin bread and pass it out to friends or teachers.  I didn’t rotate […]

A shawl, a shirt, and a touch of madness

I have to thank you all for the feedback on my partially-completed shawl.  I was on the fence about splurging for the materials to finish the project, and your comments gave me a lot of food for thought… So, I bought the other two skeins and finished the shawl.  But not before I ripped out […]

Mr. Woolhat

Whatever would we do without Netflix?  Well, we certainly wouldn’t be introducing our children to old episodes of The Monkees.  And by extension, I most definitely would not be knitting a green wool hat with a pom-pom on top for my older son. But, we do have Netflix, and we have been renting The Monkees, […]

Well as anyone who has been knitting for some time knows, two skeins […]

Updates of the shop and oatmeal kinds

Who knew that the key to getting a good conversation started around here was to talk about breakfast?  I’ll keep that in mind for the next slow spell. Heh.  And I guess, based on what you’re all saying, that my oatmeal-trying days can’t be over until I’ve given the steel-cut type a chance. Ok.  Twist […]

A blur of fabric and clay

If I wasn’t so full right now from my take-out supper, I’d be curled up in my pj’s sipping a cup of vanilla coffee as I write this.  Actually, I’m too full for the coffee, but not for the pj’s.  Hm.  Hang on a moment while I go change…  There.  That’s much better. So, ready […]

Sneak Peek

It’s been a quiet week on the blog, but not so in Real Life™.  The kids started school on Tuesday, and this being the first year that both of them have a full day schedule, it’s been rather odd for me.  I certainly have enough to keep me busy, but it’s hard to get out […]
