I paid attention. I did. I really did!

Hey, knitting makes me concentrate all the harder on what I’m hearing. I even took notes. And I’m on vacation. Did I tell you I’m on vacation? Yeah alright. I’m also at a conference, but I’m learning a lot. John is climbing the walls, but I’m learning a lot. And almost done with the first…

On the Road to Atlantic City -…THERE

Hi! Am typing this from the lobby of the Sheraton Hotel here in Atlantic City – on lunch break from Beyond Finding Words a follow-up course to the Finding Words forensic interviewing training for people involved in the area of child protection. So far I’ve met a Florida prosecutor and a forensic interviewer from South…

Packing up my knitting

to take with me on vacation (well sort of). I mean, really folks, first things first. This thing is really starting to move along. Well, of course it does when you’re not knitting 352-stitch rows, LOL! And by the way, I’m not as slim as the picture below might indicate! The stitch holders for the…

I am in Hog Heaven

Can’t figure out if “hog” or “heaven” is the operative term. Since arriving home yesterday afternoon (and a flat tire providing me with no way to accomplish a client visit I had hoped to do), I spent until the wee hours of the morning knitting the Cables & Os sweater, , finished the second of…

Stinky Monday

The house still smells like the garlic roasted with Sabrina’s vegetables. I have a pile of files and paperwork sitting on the living room-cum-homeoffice floor. Yech. and the downstairs bathroom needs cleaning – the fun part of working 80 percent of the time out of one’s home. You’re never 100 percent at work and never…

It’s Wednesday and ahm Tarred…

It’s been a LONG couple of days, but I’ve been able to get a lot done and yet still have a lot to do. After hitting the sack at 3:30 am Tuesday morning (it felt like Monday night), I got up at 7:30 (HAPPY BIRTHDAY BETSY!!!), finished updating some things on the calendar, and got…

What Can I Say? It’s August

August for me is like the passageway between reflection and action; the old and the new – a chance to catch up and fall further behind at the same time; to do things I haven’t done in a while and to just continue living. How was that for vague? And yet it must be. From…

I guess I must have a life

Or two…..Just kidding. More to come later this week – I am wiped out – it’s been really really busy at work. Did some knitting to keep sane, but even that’s been slow going.Take care – back soon…..
