Travel and Back, Part Deux (the knitting bit…)

When last I left you, dear 2.5 readers, I was back home, having had a delightful excursion to Florida.  We had had a rather awful Plumbing Emergency the week before and the landlords wanted to have their insurance adjustor’s agent have a look at it and determine what, if anything, needed to be done.  We…

Travel… and back.

About two weeks ago, I took a week (plus two weekends) off from work.  It was delightful:)! John and I flew to Florida to see relatives on both sides of the family and of course our son, Danny, in his latest dramatic endeavor: Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire. Danny reprised his role as the brutally vulnerable…

I am not Whinebecking.

I have wanted to go to Rhinebeck for many years now.  It’s in upstate New York, about a half-day drive from here in Central Merlin, but finding a place to stay, even if sharing it with others, is a bit problematic.  Also, it usually falls on or near the weekend of the Columbia Sip ‘n…

Another quick one…

And I mean quick – in ten minutes I have to change for court and meet up with a colleague for whom I am covering while she has to be elsewhere.  Anyway, thought I’d do a quick update on projects and life. As the picture above shows, I just barely started on a cowl -and…

Runs, Hits and Errors…

I don’t have a picture of the progress made on the Rhapsody in Cables sweater, but progress I’ve made.  Unfortunately, it was made at the expense of much-needed sleep.  I simply could not sleep last night, so I figured if I stayed up knitting, I’d eventually get tired, but for some reason, I just kept…

Decisions Decisions!

Remember when last I left you, dear 2.5 readers, I was not 100 percent sure of the colors I had chosen for the Birkin I want to do in the (hopefully) near future? Well, yeah… those colors were lovely, but a wee bit too brilliant and clear for my faded colors. So I toned it down a…

Sneaking this in before I hit the road…

WARNING: THIS POST MAY HAVE SOME RELIGIOUS STUFF IN IT. If that is not your thing, please just skip over it.  I am not about trying to foist my beliefs or my belief system on anyone else – except to say we should all be kind to one another, one at a time. I am…

And the Knit goes on…

How is everyone today? Here in Merlin, it is sunny and beautiful and not terribly hot for the end of summer. Keeping all my Florida relatives and friends in my prayers as they hunker down for Hurricane Dorian. Please send good thoughts – and as is your wont – prayers down their way. Am having…

A Quick Post on a Sunday afternoon.

 It seems I’m always posting (when I do) on Sundays.  I think it’s because I don’t usually plan much on Sundays save the usual get-togethers we have as a family.  I try to keep my activities to that and the odd church thing.  The past couple of weeks have been busy-ish.  Right now I’m not…
