Well it’s been awhile hasn’t it! All things in their time…. As I type we’re getting an Nor’easter, and what a storm it is! True to its name the snow is falling hard and steady. A good day indeed to make a list and get through it. Playing outside is on my list for sure, so before too long I’ll don my snowshoes and will explore! I love being out in our storms. Yes they’re both loves and bundles of joy 😉  Foster has already grown out the first two hats I made him, but here’s the latest for him to...

November 20, 2016 First snow

Posted by on Nov 20, 2016 in Uncategorized | 2 comments

Life has been good and it’s good to be here. I welcome in this damp and rainy Sunday. The fire is roaring, beautiful classic music is playing and I think I’ll do some yoga after this. I might work and I might not… it’s been awhile since I’ve had a good long sit of knitting. It seems lately that I get to it for brief bursts, but would love to make some further progress today. Due to the severe case of ‘startitis’ I’ve had, there are many projects to choose from (oh how I love that!) Another one of my favorite yarn shops is closing, drat!...

On September 22nd I became a grandmother! And on October 3rd my older son turned 30, amazing! Yesterday someone asked me how I felt about about it and my answer was, grateful. Oh he is a treasure that little one!!! All are tired and well… and tired. My treatments are over and I feel great. Radiation was a piece of cake… my skin was unscathed and my energy level was … normal? I was told it could tire me out, but at the end of the day aren’t we all just tired anyway? I couldn’t tell a difference, and feel working with a...

A few weeks back, and idea popped into my head. I ‘saw’ this image for handles, spoke with my leather guy and here’s the prototype. I’m very pleased as it offers another option/look/feel. These straps are 3/4” wide, very firm and are attached with rivets. I see these straps on a small, medium and large split top tote and the pocket will run the width of the back with a snap closure in the center. These were put on for me, so I could see if I liked them…… and I do, very much. They won’t replace the straps I currently use, they are in...

And in to Fall we go

Well life is moving right along, which it does. The days are so obviously shorter and boy, do I love the cooler temperatures. So far though September has been warm but the evening temperature is the reminder of cooler days to come. I feel great and radiation is more like an errand at this point! I have a 40 minute drive one way, radiation lasts 5 or so minutes, then it’s back home. Many of my appointments are early morning so I get home by the time I normally am ready to get going with my day. I feel no effects from the radiation,...

Wrapping up August

Posted by on Aug 26, 2016 in Uncategorized | 3 comments

  It’s been a fun flurry of finishing up some wip’s  so I could get to this monkey! With the two items that went to the fair, and the baby hat (still no pics!) I couldn’t wait to get to this monkey. Not sure if any of you participate in the Ravellenic Games over on Ravelry, but this year I signed up for the ‘toy toss’ category. I had the body done before finishing the other projects, and did have one leg, both eyes and the muzzle completed, but had a lot of work to get it finished, photographed and posted...

August 14 blackberries

My sister is on her way back to Maine, she was here for the baby shower and what a great shower it was! I’d had a feeling things might be done differently now (as opposed to 30 years ago) and indeed they are. So friends and family joined to celebrate and support cherished loved ones. The days have been hot and heavy with humidity and mother earth chose the time of the shower to open up her skies and p-o-u-r, which dampened everything but our spirits and laughter. These mitts were done awhile ago and I finished up a hat to match and...

August 1, 2016 Rabbit Rabbit!

Well I for one am just fine that August is here. My last treatment is on Thursday the 4th (my sister’s birthday) and I’m thrilled!… and feeling well. This time of year has been perfect for having no hair. I love the feeling of the wind on my head and keeping cool. It’s been freeing actually, knowing that my hair has nothing (really nothing) to do with my femininity, my sexuality, or how beautiful I feel. I love feeling my neck and the tops of my ears, and rain drops on all of it. My energy is good, and I’m...

  It’s early morning and I love this time of day. For years I was a night owl, often working until midnight and beyond. But now the summer mornings are just too good to miss and well, when I wake up, I’m up. My heartfelt thanks for the cards and dear gifts that have come my way, I am so touched and thank you so very much. I’m doing well and I feel good. Two treatments left, the last on my sister’s birthday! Celebration! Then a little break, and in that break I look forward to a baby shower! Knitting little things...

Ahhh, sweet, sweet summertime, happy Solstice to you all! Lately I’ve been waking so early (which I love) yet once the sun goes down… I’m pretty much ready to go down too! We went to a couple of library book sales a few weeks ago and I’m almost finished with a Dean Koontz book from the mid 80’s. I didn’t know when the book was written when I started it, but when reading about full ashtrays in business meetings and ‘new VCR’s’ I knew we were in a different decade! Actually it’s been...
