I'm learning about that resiliency....I cut back (to nubs) my 'dead' fig tree so I could toss it out, only to have it put out growth like I never saw last year. Wondering if I'll get figs this year?? Same thing happened to a meyers lemon. Plants are my heroes!!!

I think this might make it official. The flags mark the footprint of our little addition. When we moved to our itty bitty bungalow 18 years ago, a lot of people thought we I was out of my mind. (Most still do!) One bedroom/one bathroom....about 1000 square feet. I read... Continue reading

The weekend storms left us without a land-line and without an internet connection. I tried hard to embrace being disconnected and faired a bit better than hubby who looked at his phone every 30 seconds for four days. It's rather humbling to discover how tied I am to technology when... Continue reading

It rained, rained, drizzled, rained, POURED !, rained some more, misted, ---the sun peeked out for a minute, then, rain...rain...rain. And then more rain. The basement flooded (again). The Arts and Music Festival got very very wet. So the best part of my weekend was catching up with a friend... Continue reading

These are two of my favorite hats to knit!!! (and of course, the colors couldn't be better.....grey family all the way!) I'm having window sill envy....we have an old house that I would deem perfect in every way if only it had deep sills!!!

One of the community projects my garden club is committed to is the development of a certified Monarch butterfly waystation at Whitehaven, our local tourist welcome center. Biennially we have a fundraising plant sale/luncheon/garden tour to fund these endeavors; it took place earlier in the week. It's always a ton... Continue reading

On the needles: I think I showed great restraint by waiting a whole week before casting on Prickly Poppy. Berroco's Indigo is proving to be a very nice denim/cotton yarn and I'm counting on it shrinking a whole lot since for some reason I decided to knit what looks like... Continue reading

The pile of FEFBs (Finished-Except-For-Blocking) was so high in the laundry room that it actually took a tumble off the shelf and into the washing machine. A couple of nice, sunny, hot days, and those babies are now REALLY, officially FOs. Magrathea was the first to be blocked....showed it here... Continue reading

Happy Mother's Day, Momma Robin. Not bad for a point and shoot camera. Canon SX700HS* I never thought I'd shoot with anything other than a DSLR. I never thought I'd shoot with anything other than a Nikon. Never say never. *This is strictly my 'purse' camera. (Until I change my... Continue reading

nice try, though....leaving it out for the knitting elves to work on while you were away! Sorry they didn't show up. (They never come to my house either.)

Magrathea2 is finished thanks to two back-to-back road trips. If there is any drawback to this pattern, it's that it knits up almost too quickly. It would never last as a vacation knit. But, I was still engaged with the pattern to the very end. That's saying something since I... Continue reading
