Look what they’ve done to my shawl, Ma or Nina as Baby Blankie

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…

It’s a New Week

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…

Wednesday!

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! I have finally gotten my calendar back in place on the computer – now need to update the paper thing. I will never trust…

Weekend Works

Well, I joined yet another KAL (knit-a-long) yesterday and posted my first post today. I’m usually really good at these things – at first – and certainly tend to lurk all the time throughout. But this one I’m kind of excited about. If anyone reading this is interested, you can reach it byclicking on the…

Good News!

I just got some great news! Remember that brief – the one with Horton Lays an Egg in it? The one I stressed about and Connie worked so hard on? Oral argument in November? Two kids who really needed finality? Permanence? FAMILY???? Well, Connie got a letter from the Md Ct of Special Appeals today…

Oh Man… And I coulda had a V8!

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…

And the roller coaster ride continues

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…

Wednesday, blessed Wednesday:)

No, I’m not posting any to-dos here, but I will be doing a lot ‘o stuff today before EFM. I will have the opportunity to really see if that GPS thingie works when I go to an ITP meeting (Individual Treatment Plan) meeting and then to visit two clients. Then maybe will be driving someone…

Death and Life

Well, it’s been a little while since I last posted. I’m writing so late at night because, believe it or not, it’s really the first time I’ve had a chance to do so. It’s been a solid week since I last posted. Haven’t really done much knitting, except for the odd stitch on the scarf…

Good Advice but felt I had to delete it….

Rev. Barbara Cawthorne Crafton of New York City has the right idea. This came from her “Almost Daily eMo” and boy did it hit home for me. And I posted it here earlier today – and forwarded it to my church choir. But then I took a look at the bottom of her e-mail and…
