(You may be asking why there was a starfish setting out on our back patio---in the heartland of America--hundreds of miles from the coast? Long, uninteresting story. It didn't need to...

I've finished the book....The Road by Cormac McCarthy...since I took the picture. Haunting. Dark. Terrorizing. Heartbreaking. A love story. It tears at your heart. I may never recover from it. No wonder it has received so many accolades since it was written in 2006. (The Pulitzer Prize, James Tait Black... Continue reading

In my kitchen: Yes, this IS last week's blueberry buckle, although it IS this week's picture of it, which shows how long it will keep. Trust me, it's still moist and yummy. I know because I ate that whole big piece and left Freddy only a couple crumbs. (hee hee....he... Continue reading

and I copycatted Tien (autumngeisha)....I'm finding that wool felts just the slightest when you put an iced drink on it and it gets damp. Improves with use!!!

I have a new toy*....and I can't help but think of it as a toy because it reminds me so much of the potholder loopy looms of my youth. (Although, truth be told, I still have one and I still use it occasionally when I need new potholders, because they... Continue reading

If you had asked me 40 years ago (remember, I've been knitting since birth) to define my knitting, I would have said I'm a cable-gal. I'll tackle any and every aran pattern in sight. I knit every afghan in this book. (I still own this book because, who knows?, I... Continue reading

I debated whether I should join the hop again this week...things look suspiciously similar to last week... :: oatmeal and blueberries (good, goopey oatmeal) every morning starts this way; the only difference is whether I eat it with the crossword puzzle, the jumble, or sudoku :: the currant tomatoes are...

Yes, three is really amazing....i have a 3 year old grand daughter (#5 in her family, too!).....and we all wonder what life would have been like without her? In charge? you bet. Smart as a tack.... but I love how she, too, is totally her own little person-----her dress for a couple months was her Halloween pumpkin costume with a sparkly tiara. Hugs to Annabel!!

Almost on the needles: The yarn is Dream in Color Smooshy, color: aquajet. And it really wants to be these socks. On the needles: This sock has been rather patiently awaiting not only its mate, but a heel. Surely, I can juggle 2 pairs of socks? Reading: Selvedge arrived in... Continue reading
