It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood….

I still mourn the loss of Mr. Rogers. He was a wonderful man, a gentle soul with the smoothest tone of voice and the sharpest intelligence. He was a minister, an educator, a light shining in the darkness and the world is still impoverished by his absence. When people ask me who the man of…

It’s been a week

And I’ve gotten a few things done:) Except the wash, of course. I think I’ll be dead before that’s ever finished! This week has been fairly productive. Monday was a short day in court – and the weather was beautiful but I was inside. Alas, no exercise, but I did get my paperwork done. Tuesday…

Well, I wasn’t at the service, but I was in Virginia!

A few months ago, our son, Danny’s, in-laws, Lisa and John, invited us to go with them to Virginia – Loudon County to be exact – to visit a vineyard where they had found some wonderful wine – and they told us they couldn’t find any better wine elsewhere in our area. So…not one to…

Picking up where I left off

Such is my life – trial puts everything on hold (0r almost everything) then it’s catch up:). Thankfully today, the TPR trial I was supposed to participate in has been postponed indefinitely. So I will have time to settle in on this cloudy, windy, dreary (although I like this kind of weather) day and get…

Good News and BAD NEWS

Well the good news is, my little friends are breathing a little easier today. Rennie’s arm/bionic elbow is/are not broken, no surgery to drive the diabetes ’round the bend, thanks be to God. The bad news is all over the radio and TV and internet. 32 young human beings dead at the hands of a…

Love Means Having One More Person to Worry About…

And it means ALWAYS having to say you’re sorry, Love Story notwithstanding (ask my husband, LOL!). I’m going to quickly update here because it’s Sunday and I have fambly stuff to do. But I need to get this off my chest. As anyone knows who has read this blog, a very big part of my…

Some new items

I finally got the yarn together and started on this – one of Dale of Norway’s patterns. Of course, it will be a weeeee bit larger and I’m a lot less blonde than this model, LOL:) Here’s my beginning pic. Am still working on that blankie for my great niece (she’ll be 12 by the…

Progress!

Well, I decided not to get that bottle of wine last night – and I think it was a wise choice, given that I got a lot of knitting done on that lacy piece and without the errors that have been plaguing its construction from the beginning. Here are some pics:I think the light blue…

Headache

I have a headache that won’t go away. It’s not a bad one, just one of those naggy things that sits in the back of your head. Oh well, I’ll live. That’s what they make ibuprofen for, right? Well, it’s Friday and I am looking forward to getting some knitting done tonight. The kids are…

I’ve been silent too long (sung to the Rascal’s hit….)

Sorry to have been so quiet on the ‘net. Hah – most of my friends would strongly disagree with that. But I guess life hath intervened. It always does:) Madison had a nice birthday. It was good to see her getting some good attention. Unfortunately, she sometimes too much like her “mom-mom” was back in…
