With the advent of a new great niece I decided it was time to knit something (as if I didn’t already have a gazillion projects a humming in the house…) Anyhoo, I thought I’d use the Nina Shawl pattern. I love all the M-D patterns, but this one is especially cute and quite adaptable to a baby blanket. I’m hemming the ends and will be … Continue reading Look what they’ve done to my shawl, Ma or Nina as Baby Blankie
Hello:) I feel like it’s been forever since posting. Let’s see, when last we left our story, I was getting ready for Thursday’s court and a fairly hectic weekend. So true. Thursday, I had court in the morning and went to the park for a walk. After changing in the courthouse bathroom, I was dressed (or so I thought) warmly enough for a nice long … Continue reading It’s a New Week
Hey, just writing to do a quick catch up on the week. Today, I will be getting ready for Court Thurs and Friday and preparing for the insane weekend coming up!

Guess I’m too old:) For the knitters who … Continue reading Wednesday!

The Maryland intermediate appellate court … Continue reading Good News!
Apparently I have “gay hands.” Man! After 30 years of marriage and six kids, I’ve been doing it all wrong! Geez Louise! I should have been another ALF. Little did I know:) Note the ring finger is ever so much longer than the index finger. Well now I’m showing my total lack of experience and sophistication! That’s OK, just don’t tell John. He’d be laughing … Continue reading Oh Man… And I coulda had a V8!
Today was court. Not too eventful, except the one contested case that ended appropriately. I had promised a co-worker an eyelash scarf to wear with work clothes and so decided to check out Michaels. Sure enough – massive sale:) so I was a little bit bad:) Seriously, it cost very little – 2 bucks a skein and I only got a few:) And a Knitter’s … Continue reading And the roller coaster ride continues
