A few days ago I mentioned that I was going to try to be more respectful in work and life. I haven't forgotten. Once I'd written it down (or to be more literal, typed it) and thought about it, I really realized how much poor attitudes are dragging me down. Today I read with interest … Continue reading I hope this will be a trend
Brenda Dane of Cast On just posted a new episode last week. I haven't listened yet, but I read the show notes and they asked about imaginary knitting. Jenny & Nicole from Stash & Burn talk about it a bit too. I have to admit I've got a lot of imaginary knitting going on in … Continue reading Imaginary Knitting
I got nothing as far as things to say. So here's a picture of a fun cookie jar that Eliza found at the NY Sheep & Wool Festival (no we didn't buy it, but it would work for my collection).
Well, I've been posting something every day this month. I've been avoiding committing to the fact that I seem to be participating in NaBloPoMo this year in so far as I am trying to post something every day. I don't know if there's an official way to participate, I just figured I'd give it a … Continue reading Friday Rambling: Respect

If you don’t have one, do you plan to?I don't yet have an e-reader, and I have to admit I did not see myself getting one in the … Continue reading Booking through Thursday: E-volution – Would you buy an e-reader?
Today I got to play a bit of hookie from chores and took off for Springfield to go to the New England Fiber Festival with my mother-in-law and a friend of hers. I had two goals for my trip - some buttons and a trip to Spunky Eclectic's booth to say hi to Amy & … Continue reading Bonus Fiber Day
This morning started with the thrill of the chase. Calvin, who we found one day as a teeny tiny kitten, has grown into quite the cat. Today was the second day this week that he had a mouse. Hobbes, who died in January at the ripe old age of 19, was a suberb mouser. He … Continue reading Defining ourselves
It's no surprise that the northeast experienced an early snow storm last weekend. We had our first snow October 27th, and while most people weren't ready, physically or mentally, I have to say we were more ready mentally than many. All day Friday we checked on the accumulation predictions, and I was pretty excited to … Continue reading A walk in the snow
So, with the successful completion of the genie costume, I seem to have reignited my desire to sew. A few years ago (yes years) I made a Noni bag. I have been procrastinating the finishing process for the last 4 and a half years. I purchased material for lining, feet, and a magnetic closure. I … Continue reading Next in the queue – sewing queue, that is
Halloween is E's favorite holiday. Hands down. She may disagree on Christmas morning, or when the whole family is sitting around the Thanksgiving table, or lighting the Chanukah candles, or when she's learning about the 10 plagues (okay, that may have been a stretch), but I think Halloween is at the top of the list. … Continue reading Branching out
