I’m almost ready to (GASP) steek this thing, a recent misplacement of the crochet hook having sidelined the Prayer Shawl temporarily. This has moved along due to what I like to call “nervous knitting” – knitting that happens after hours, when watching the news, for example, or a movie – things I do with John on the evenings he and I are both home at … Continue reading Mid-week and taking stock.
It’s probably making the rounds of the e-mail community, but who cares – it is soooo true:)!! The Price of Children The government recently calculated the cost of raising a child from birth to 18 and came up with $160,140 for a middle income family. Talk about sticker shock! That doesn’t even touch college tuition. But $160,140 isn’t so bad if you break it down. … Continue reading My daughters sent me this
Well, this book to my left helped me out today, although WordPress had most of what I needed to know all set up for me anyway, LOL.

Since my wordpress blog has all my posts from this and other blogs all put together, I figure … Continue reading Some technical stuff
Finally:)! I just didn’t have the energy at 2:30 this morning to block this shawl. It’s small – it had to be; I didn’t have time to knit something huge, but it is kind of cute – and it is being paired with another birthday gift. Three of us are going to lunch tomorrow. It’s about a week early, but Easter is the recipient’s birthday, … Continue reading Finished!

I opted for the smaller version, but added three rows of garter followed by a picot bind off. Gotta go- early morning tomorrow! God be with you ’til we meet again+ Continue reading Not quite blocked, but almost there
March is going out like a lion – or maybe a lion cub. It’s cooler outside, because of the wind, but it’s lovely! I wish the weather would stay like this all year – just enough to need a sweater, but not so bad you’re uncomfortable. John, bless his heart, came home from the supermarket (yes he did) yesterday with a beautiful bunch of tulips, … Continue reading Faith
It’s a rainy Monday here in Merlin, dear 3.5 readers and I am sitting in court waiting for my last case of the morning to be called. Of course it’s contested. Of course it is therefore the last to be heard. Oh and I just found out that the hearing I was initially told was in the a.m. is actually in the p.m. Which means … Continue reading Shhhhhh…. posting from court…..
