Sleighbells Ring, are you listening, in the lane, snow is glistening….

This was my ride homefrom church about noon today. Ellicott City looked like a fairy tale wonderland. My kids kept saying – it looks like Narnia out there:) Looks innocuous enough, but the roads were fairly slippery. As you can see, our little street and our “driveway” were virgin snow territories. So cool. This morning,…

Well enough of all this selfishness!

Time to get down to some serious work! Today was very busy and stressful, but I got all the visits done I needed to and that was good. It’s late, but I want to get things ready for tomorrow so that I’m good to go in the morning. Don’t want to stay up too late,…

Not much new to report

I just have a lot of visits and miles of paperwork to go before i sleep tonight – and before the Ash Wednesday service tomorrow evening! and another staff meeting and another meeting at DSS and I am tearing my hair out! It would be soooo nice to have time to knit and/or praxis the…

Whoo Hoo! Ruby likes her sweater and the timing is right for a change:) She came into the house and couldn’t stop moving! But she likes her sweater:) I don’t give that plaid ribbon another five minutes, though, LOL. Madison was just a little jealous, so Grammy’s making her one in this (also machine washable,…

Odds and Ends

Well, let’s see now, where were we? Oh yeah, no time for so much as sleeping or going to the you-know-what. Well, the next day couldn’t have been drearier. Here’s the view from the Baltimore Beltway on my way home from court on Tuesday around noontime.And here’s the view out the front and back doors…

It’s over and only just started

I hate this. I was there when the boss fired a fellow employee. There just wasn’t the work to do, and there were good reasons, but they never add up to the horrible feelings you have afterwards. I cannot help but feel horrific guilt for causing a person pain, no matter what the level of…

Happy Birthday to Moi

I am now 53. No big deal. Just an older old lady:) My daughter, Sabrina, sent me a text message saying, “Happy 60th” Really sweet, right? Well, hell, what’s wrong with 60? One of my bestest friends in the whole world will be 63 soon and I think she is just beautiful inside and out….

I am so bad!

After a little trip to the yarn store I don’t know when (hum de dum dum dum…) I found a couple of balls of Encore in some cool colors and decided to knit a little hooded thingie for Ruby:) I also have some hot pink/red yarn to do the same for Madison. It’s a very…

I’m Offended!

19 percent indeed!!! Harumph!!! Why I’m no more a Republican than Hilary C!!!! I am:19%Republican. “You’re a tax-and-spend liberal democrat. People like you are the reason everyone else votes for guys like Reagan or George W.” Are You A Republican?

OK, so I’m a nerd. Get over it already….

You can follow a standard pattern if it’s not too complicated and know where to go to get help. Maybe you’ve started to experiment with different fibers and you might be…
