Until this morning, the skies looked like this for almost all of last week: On the Tuesday the above photos were taken, I was on my way to bell practice. We rehearsed very quickly that evening, then all of us got drenched leaving early, getting to our cars and getting home. There was a tornado watch and in some parts of the state, I believe one or … Continue reading Spring/Summer Finally!
Spring hath definitely sprung here in Merlin, USA. The snapshot above is of a tree-lined street near Baltimore County DSS where I attended a meeting this past week. I took the picture while pulled over briefly – couldn’t resist. It has been an unusual week for me in that I had no regularly scheduled cases on any of the three docket days. I had one … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day:)
What a great way to start a weekend! Our eldest grandchild, M., performed Friday evening with the Mount Hebron HS dance company. She was very happy. This has been a great year for her. You can see the happiness on her face as she poses with her aunt and sister right after the performance. She and her family will be coming by today to celebrate … Continue reading Having a lovely time….
Or perhaps one can say it’s peeking around the corner, hesitantly moving forward in fits and starts:). That’s OK – I’ll take it! The past week or so has been pretty much same old same old. Not a whole bunch to report, except I did finally finish the Bright Sweater! That last sleeve took sooooo long to finish. I have to laugh – I thought for sure … Continue reading Spring Hath Sprung and Happy Bearthday!

After that is done all that is left to do is weaving in the very few ends to be woven in and then blocking. So, after I am back from my one client visit … Continue reading There’s this Earning A Living thing going on…
Oh boy… what a week it’s been on the knitting front. Am in the home stretch for the Bright Sweater (finally!) with four more repeats of the sleeve patterning for the second (left) sleeve and then the twisted stitch ribbing and stockinette roll at the cuff. I actually tried it on and – who knew?- it will fit! This sweater is meant to be extremely over-sized for … Continue reading An Embarassment of Riches and Stash Enhancement:)
Or so they say:). I am doing the one thing I never liked: not attending church the Sunday after the holiday – so lazy of me. It’s hard to believe it’s only one week since Easter, which in the western church tradition was last Sunday. Today is Easter for the Orthodox and Eastern rite Catholics. Happy Easter to you:)! What a couple of weeks it has … Continue reading I heard a rumor that Spring is coming.
