Last Saturday night began Daylight Savings Time in the US (or most of it, anyway). Of late, it seems to start about a month earlier in the year than it used to, making for colder, darker mornings and longer brighter days (at least when it’s not raining or sometimes snowing). But it’s still cold around here. Spring does eventually come and when it does, it’s … Continue reading Spring? Ahead
I am always a bit wary of posting a title like this for any blogpost. It invariably means the week will end up insane at the last minute. But so far, not much has gone on. In a week where I have court at least three mornings and some afternoons, I have only the a.m. and p.m. docket tomorrow. I need to complete some paperwork … Continue reading A Quiet Week
Have been busy at work, but managed to knit a bit on the Nordic Cowl. Progress is moving right along – am more than halfway through the second half, so I guess I’m past 75 percent done:)! When you get this close to finishing a project, you just have to keep on keeping on. The Truckbeth Carbeth is still sitting in time out through no fault of … Continue reading Another Quick Post Before Heading Out
Church was at 9 a.m. Choir was supposed to be practicing by 8:30 (quietly and crowdedly) in the Music Director’s office WITH the children’s choir. Yeah.

I must still be detoxing recovering from last weekend and the … Continue reading Overslept Sunday
I woke up this morning before dawn. Who knows why. I am already tired, LOL, but have to get ready for work in a few minutes. I thought I’d post a little update. The spring get-together at the Blue Mountain Retreat Center was wonderful. I had such a great time with a terrific bunch of fellow knitters:)! It was nice to get away to knit, … Continue reading Shhhh it’s early…..
Out in a spot in western Maryland, about a half mile away from where the Potomac and the Shenandoah Rivers meet at the intersection of Maryland, West Virginia, and Virginia, on top of a hill, nestled in the woods, is a little retreat center called the Blue Mountain Retreat Center. Groups of many kinds come here, quilters, weavers, seekers of truth and…. yep … Continue reading RETREAT!!!!!
I have missed a wee bit of time on the Carbeth. One needs to earn a living, you know. After swatching and figuring out which size to make (not as easy as it might seem), I finally got started. Progress has not been as swift as I would like, mostly because knitting with thick yarn and fat needles can be tough on the hands (I … Continue reading Banging out a Carbeth… or was it Slogging through a Truckbeth?
