Looking Back | September 2020

September showed up right on schedule, and lasted a whole month. — Jenny Wingfield This was a month that I wish felt like February... short and over almost before it began. The days just dragged on and I had the worst case of the blues in...

Friday Thoughts | 10.2.20

Another week draws to a close with its own set of hiccups. I had hoped to have found more nuggets of time to feed my Acorn Obsession, but I think the diversion is one I would not trade for anything. And while I cannot share photos, I can tell you that I have a new...

Greetings, Unravelers! This week's making is back to Sleeve Island. Slowly, round by round, I am moving towards the cuff...of the first sleeve! lol In voting news, we got an email that our ballots were mailed 8 days ago but we have yet to receive them. Mail at our...

I am joining Honoré again this month to share an update on my word. Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen Hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is...

Weekending | 9.28.20

Hi! I know, I said I was not going to be back until tomorrow, but what can I say. Ha! Do you ever feel in a rut? Well, I can tell you we sure do! Steve and I have been talking about how we are always doing/eating/listening to the same.things.every.week. So this week,...

I do not pretend to understand the moral universe, the arc is a long one, my eye reaches but little ways. I cannot calculate the curve and complete the figure by the experience of sight; I can divine it by conscience. But from what I see I am sure it bends towards...

It has been hard to "get back into reality" even with just a few days away. But going anywhere in these Pandemic Times is a challenge, right? Our trip to Erie was no exception, we both worried about staying *any* place...even with the "enhanced cleaning" Airbnb...

Sometimes Monday | 9.21.20

Sometimes Monday | 9.21.20

is all about the memories of sunsets and long walks, of the thrill of seeing a kettle of Turkey Vultures floating on the high winds, unexpected artwork, some history, a houseboat community (What?? I might have new summer goals!!), so.much.good.food! and icons (RBG and...

This week's knitting was a brief interlude from sleeve knitting, because I finally got some Winston Measurements from my daughter! So before he grows any more, I picked up his Avery 2.0 Vest! The front is done, and the back is almost done! Which means I will just have...

Sometimes Monday | 9.14.20

Means a cooler start to the week! And the mornings are so dark now. The tables have turned and instead of the sun waiting for me to rise... I am waiting for the sun, which just might be the perfect way to ease into the week. These words by Jericho Brown have lingered...

Sleeve Island | 9.11.20

It's been a week, again. A world on fire... literally. So to maintain some semblance of sanity, I have avoided the internet...which means, I "found" nothing this week to share with you. But... I reached Dreamy Sleeve Island! Which means nine million stitches were...

In retrospect, Gentle Readers, I should have done 1 more repeat of the patterning. In the end, rather than rip back 10 rows of ribbing, I just forged ahead and did an extra inch of 1x1 ribbing... Sigh. At no point in time did I ever try the body on to see how the...

Looking Back | August 2020

“The month of August had turned into a griddle where the days just lay there and sizzled.” ― Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees Yes, this quote perfectly sums up what August was for me...a month of sizzling, never ending heat. By months end, my gardens were all...

Joining Carole and friends this week! Thing One: Did you see that John Meacham has a new podcast? I have listened to the first two episodes and it is well worth a listen! Thing Two:  I know a few of you are obsessed with play Animal Crossings: New Horizons. Did you...

Unraveled Wednesday | 9.2.20

A brief dip into autumnal temperatures were enough to spur me on to pick up my Evening Dew Cardigan and a bit of knitting over the weekend while watching The Peanut Butter Falcon and an episode or two of Silent Witness and I find myself less than one repeat away from...

August, die she must... — Paul Simon, April Come She Will Sometimes Monday is for weekend reminiscing...with memories of proscuitto wrapped figs happy hour,  torrential downpours, the return of autumn beer, and the departure of the endless heat and humidity. Sometimes...

Friday Finds | 8.28.20

Oh boy. It has been a very hard week. A week that took an already dismal month and ramped it up by about 1000% and while I am thankful that Jacob Blake survived, I am so angry that there was an incident which put that in question. And, I can't even be sane about 17...

Thanks to LONG audiobooks, I have gotten in some good knitting time this week! And voilà, I have a completed Ranunculus! It needs a wash, but I am wearing it today and it is perfect. Shorter sleeves FTW! I also started a new vest for Winston (No page yet, but the...
