I'm curious about the changes made by Typepad. I also have my blog hosted there and, other than a blip last week when I didn't get notification of comments on a post or two, I don't notice anything different in the way I receive comments or in how I reply... WHAT IS HAPPENING? Meanwhile, I've been considering a move from Typepad for other reasons, but going on 15 years worth of posts is... daunting to say the least. Good luck on your wellness journey!!

Thing 1 Well, I tried... "Walk-in Wednesday" mammograms are still a thing, but there are limited slots (a change from last time I was able to take advantage) and it didn't work out yesterday, so, there's a scheduled mammogram appointment... Continue reading

v. to give oneself to the enjoyment of My knitting has been limited -- a row or two or four, at best, most evenings -- but it occurred to me the other day that I could possibly reframe my thinking.... Continue reading

Saturday was a day highly anticipated around here (at least for me) -- it was so important that I'd added it to my Google Calendar so I wouldn't miss it: Local Electronics Recycling Day!! I had three vacuum cleaners, a... Continue reading

The knitting has been (literally) painfully slow, but it's happening. That's a totally photoshopped mirrored image of my Savage Heart Cardigan from a while back (it's that or more pics of or by the kids -- haha!), but it's pretty... Continue reading

Well, I fell on Saturday afternoon, while carrying Malina across a grassy area in a park, which turned out to be very uneven terrain. It looked fine -- grass was growing, it had obviously been growing for a while &... Continue reading
