Purdy….

I had to interrupt my regularly scheduled blogging to take some pictures of the beautiful evidence of Spring that seems to have peeked out since the weekend.  During a brief sunshine intermission in what has been a week of rainy weather, I got in a few snapshots of flowers, wild and otherwise, that grace our…

Daydream Believer

One of my favorite family memories is of all eight of us in the car: John, the baby (J)  and I in the front seat, K, D and B in the back seat and B and D(son) in the “way back” seat (yes, it was a station wagon!).  We had just packed up the house and…

Have a great weekend!

Well, dear readers, I am headed off to Philadelphia, PA, called by many of my native land the birthplace of Liberty. (I think this is somewhat arrogant, considering that democracy started long ago and far away as far as we know in Greece!) Anyway, John and I are going to the wedding of a nephew…

This is why I’m glad to live in the U.S. of A.!

This weekend, dear readers of the Amurikan persuasion, think on the thousands of people throughout all of our all-too-short history who have died so our lawyers would not have to film this video shortly before their deaths!My heart goes out to the family of this man – and to the families of all the people…

Wherefore Bloggest Thou?

A month or so ago, I was talking with a friend about the whole Facebook, MySpace, Twitter phenomena and the business of blogging – whether it was appropriate for me to do it. I was concerned that perhaps I was opening myself up to situations that I might not like. I was worried that clients…

Does this yarn make my nose look fat?

As if I cared:)! I really love the color – it’s KnitPicks CotLin in Morroccan Red.  Now tell me honestly, anything named “Morroccan Red” can’t be bad, right? Well, I started casting on.  Yes, casting on – I who have 8,756 projects already in the works decided I wanted to knit yet ANOTHER top! Yes,…

Lotsa Tops

Found: a lovely quotation at the bottom of an e-mail from fellow Yahoo! group member Marion Sandner of Germany: Wir Menschen sind Engel mit nur einem Flügel- wir müssen uns umarmen um fliegen zu können! Translation: We people are angels with only one wing – we have to put our arms around each other to…

Spiritual Sunday

Yesterday as a long day.  Yes, it was Mother’s Day and all that great stuff, but something happened that just doesn’t happen in my world: I woke up at 4:30 AM, tried to get back to sleep, but finally got out of bed at 5:50 AM and was dressed and ready to go at 6:15….

Lifted this from Crazy Aunt Purl

but it felt so right.  Watching this reminds me of how I feel after I’ve been singing – especially singing with others in choir.  No matter how blue or tired I feel or how crappy my day has been, good music makes my heart sing:)! Today brought more sadness – had a couple of hearings…

Clouds

    Remember that song Judy Collins used to sing –“Both Sides Now?” that wonderful song by Joni Mitchell: (Joni Mitchell – I’ve seen 1971, but can remember hearing it before then, I’m pretty sure!) Rows and flows of angel hair  And ice cream castles in the air  And feather canyons ev’rywhere  I’ve looked at clouds that…
