I might have spoken too soon when I said I was feeling better, so let’s just do Karmic Balancing gifts and try not to think about it. I’m taking today and knitting a sock, and working on catching up on … Continue reading ?
Hello Petals, and greetings from the other side of yesterday’s long, dark teatime of the soul. I don’t know if it’s the rest, ice, baths, massage, chiropractic, physiotherapy, drugs, whiskey, homeopathy or donations that helped, but today I feel hopeful … Continue reading ?
I have been accused, more than a few times in my life, of being overly optimistic. You wouldn’t think that such a thing could be a negative, but it works against me from time to time, as I persist (usually … Continue reading ?
Joe left this morning for a business trip, leaving me all to my own devices for the weekend (so far I have really cut loose and vacuumed the bedroom) and as soon as he was gone, I remembered that I’d … Continue reading ?
A few days ago, before I rode my bike 120km in the pouring rain (I am not even kidding. I’ve never had to ride in conditions like that. At one point I was going up a hill with Jen and … Continue reading ?
Sometimes when I write to you, I sit here tapping my fingers on the keyboard, thinking of what I could be doing that would be interesting for you to read about. Paperwork? Laundry? Another pair of plain socks because this … Continue reading ?
I started out thinking that this Wednesday wasn’t going to be anything special. As a matter of fact, it started with the Dentist (not my best scene) so I didn’t have high hopes. It turns out though, that at just … Continue reading ...
I’ve got two feelings about knitting that most of you will have guessed by now. (Well, I have lots and lots of feelings about knitting, but let’s just talk about two today. It’s best not to let all the crazy … Continue reading ?
I bet you thought I wasn’t going to post for Canada Day this year, but here I am, what may seem like a few days late, but it’s not. Our family had ton’s of commitments this weekend, but luckily the … Continue reading ?
Thank you all so much for all the kind words about our little Millie. It took me forever to read all the comments, because I could only get through so many before dissolving again, and I’m trying to move past … Continue reading ?
From the moment I saw her years and years ago, I knew Millie was the cat for me. She was very small, and the tag on her cage at the Humane Society said that she liked to chase moths, and … Continue reading ?
Random thing the first: I got on my bike this morning and took about sixteen deep breaths before pushing off and going to the gym. (Did I tell you about this? I’ve started picking up heavy things and putting them … Continue reading...
Randomly on a Wednesday: Subtitle – things I have done since last we were together. 1. I applied all your suggestions in the last post, and the baby blanket is way, way bigger. This picture isn’t even accurate – because … Continue reading ?
I’ve hit that point in the blanket project, I’m sure you know which one I mean. It’s that thing where you look at an innocent looking project, and all you can see is a gaping abyss of knitting ahead of … Continue reading ?
Making – The baby blanket. I’m two repeats in, and I think optimistically it’s going to take 15 repeats for the body, and then I can pick up stitches round my square, and get on with the border. Making– it … Continue reading ?
I know that nobody out there could possibly be as worried about this as I was, but the yarn is here. Let the great blanket sprint begin – and yes, I know that swatch is tiny but I say it … Continue reading ?
A few weeks ago, it was PWA‘s 30th anniversary. This is charity I hold near and dear to my heart, as you’ve probably gathered. I sit on the steering committee, and I’ve ridden my bike from Toronto to Montreal several … Continue reading ?
The paper and silk jacket continues to trudge along, though I’m feeling better and as my energy and will to go on returns, I’m trying to get a bunch of stuff done. I cleaned up around here, zipped out to … Continue reading ?
The quickest trip to my computer today (actually, if I tell the truth I wrote most of this on my phone and then texted it to myself) as I’ve been felled by that most ignoble of all ailments, the dastardly … Continue reading ?
Our little man Elliot is bigger by the moment. I see him every few days, and every time I pick up his little body it has a greater heft. He’s gaining so well, absolutely thriving on his mother’s milk. I … Continue reading ?
