..And yet another permutation

Permutation – is that a strange variant of the word “mutation?”Mutant? Hmmmmm. Such is my knitting. Same yarn, different day, different pattern. I just may stay with this one, gotten from Janet Szabo’s Twist and Turns newsletter. I highly recommend it. You can subscribe here. I have saved every one of them and have even gotten a few back issues. The patterns are timeless and … Continue reading ..And yet another permutation

Get Ready

It’s hard to believe that it’s already time to go back to work tomorrow. John is already back, having gotten a half holiday with that bartending gig Saturday night. Today, we had all the kids (except Danny, who is still filming in Alablankingbama), the grandkids, the in-laws, a BF and “L.B.” JoAnna’s friend since age 3. So it was a full house for dinner tonight. … Continue reading Get Ready

I won’t say more about the details to preserve my … Continue reading It’s 3:35 in the morning and I’m typing this

A not very well attended event – a bunch of tables in a relatively small space and I suspect there had not been much advance notice to the public. But happened to be at the table next to UMBC and the very nice person there gave me a copy of … Continue reading Saddiday

Such Language!

My my I’ve been terribly naughty with the language, haven’t I? Well, never fear, I’m bound to really offend someone eventually! Spent the morning getting my office – and kitchen – mess quasi-organized, went to court this afternoon for two fairly brief hearings, then home. I could’ve walked, I could’ve continued the organization route, but oh no, I settled down on my all-too-ample backside and … Continue reading Such Language!
