Had to be a Knitter!

One of the really cool things about a new house is new appliances. Brand spankin’ new appliances with gadgets! Now I’ve seen a refrigerator with the ice/water dispenser but never had one. Handy gadget! Our range is pretty nifty and I’m loving using it. But the handiest gadget had to have been designed by a…

Pharmaceutical induced madness

It was one of those days that made me want to tell the world off. It’s not my fault really. Okay the mug is my fault but I had to have it after I saw Jackie’s. Last week I called in my prescription for Synthroid (short story – years ago Graves Disease – radiation treatment…

Call it a good day!!

This is how you spend a birthday!! You dive face first into a bag of Starbucks Chocolate Chai Truffles! Oh yeah – life is good!

FiftyHalf-a-Century25×210×5You get it. Tomorrow is the day. Yesterday I had the blues for a bit. I wrote this in my journal:7April09One would think there is some sort of hoopla or epiphany that occurs at the half-century mark. It doesn’t.

It was a dark and stormy night…

So many horrendous pieces of fiction have begun that way some brilliant folks began a contest. But the truth is that Martha the Farm Dog did arrive at our farm on a dark and stormy night in Cherokee County, Oklahoma. The quick back-story is that a pack of dogs arrived to menace our dogs and…

A Visit from The Traveling Shawl

As arrival of the shawl neared I began focusing on the women who have been touched by breast cancer, those I know and those I don’t. It is both heartbreaking and heartening. Once the shawl arrived and I knit my rows and began talking about the shawl I experienced another connection. A reporter from the…

Creek Hiking Shawl!

My Laminaria is off the wires and already had several outings. This week we took the shawl to the most appropriate place I could imagine for a shawl named for kelp – the creek that cuts through our farm. The photos below were taken directly below our house, which is perched on the bluff overlooking…
