I like ’em fine and I think you’ll enjoy Jan’s writing style. After seeing Jan’s tree nest I’m shopping around…

Excellent Time for Another Gifting

Between the excessive amounts of allergy medication and antibiotics I’ve been noticing bursts of crankiness and weird fuzziness. I’m taking a few days away from blogging and thought it’d be a good time for another gifting. During the fuzziness I apparently ordered a second copy of Keeping A Journal You Love. So in the offering…

Synchronized bicycling – WOW!

Yarn Harlot

Apparently a woman/knitter/american is stalking the Yarn Harlot. Let’s support the Harlot and hope the authorities stop the person from her evil unwarranted tirade and help with her mental health issues. var gaJsHost = ((“https:” == document.location.protocol) ? “https://ssl.” : “http://www.”);document.write(unescape(“%3Cscript src=’” + gaJsHost + “google-analytics.com/ga.js’ type=’text/javascript’%3E%3C/script%3E”)); var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker(“UA-xxxxxx-x”);pageTracker._trackPageview();

Swappin' Good Fun!

Since back in February when the Mailbox Miscreants destroyed our mailboxes several weeks in a row we’ve been driving into Hulbert (eight miles away) to pick up mail once or thrice a week. Usually it’s junk mail, a few magazines, and bills. Not much fun stuff. But today – today my swap box arrived! An…

The Weekend plans…

When the heat wave broke this week I felt tremendous relief….ahh finally! One of the things we found out about last weekend at WoodyFest was that our young friend Rachel made a documentary film about her motorcycle trip to Maine last year. Rachel is 21 and a true free spirit. We saw her several weeks…

A short story memory

There was a time a million years ago, or maybe it was 15-18 years ago, that I wrote a short story. It was saved on a red floppy disk and stuffed in a drawer. There may be a paper copy somewhere in a box – or maybe not. The couple in the story lived outside…

I can’t stick with the rules.

Screw wordless Wednesday. My mind is whirling and in a panic – except when I focus on the knitting. Knitting in any manner. When I’m concentrating on a lace project all the troubles go away. In quiet moments I think about learning to dye yarn instead of solving the problems that exist. If I’m busy…
