Yep. My teen grands are super nappers too. Amazing isn’t it?! Sent from my iPhone

oh, Edna….I totally get it. You do have to try to make it appear as if a tumble was part of the overall plan when it happens (and it WILL happen!!!)

Hi, My Friends. Freddy here. I'd like to talk to you today about one of my favorite things in the whole world. Naps. I think of myself as quite the expert on the subject, and if time and practice have anything to do with perfecting a skill, I think you... Continue reading

oh, miss ellen… are describing one of my nap specialties, the nap-that-really-isn’t-a-nap nap. Those are some of the best!!!! (I wouldn’t know anything about that baby-thing….being a boy and all.)
I think that was self preservation…..not really labor! As long as you squeezed in a nap on Nap Day…..I think you have it covered.
Hi, my friends. Freddy here. I hope someone can help me out. Where I live, today is Labor Day. But, I'm not sure I get it. Most people don't go to work today. So, are you SUPPOSED to labor on Labor Day? Or are you not supposed to labor on... Continue reading

Hi, My Friends. Freddy here. I have some good news to report. My mom is knitting more again. Wanna see? Pressed leaves hat by Alana Dakos. Verdure Mitts by Alana Dakos. I think mommy likes Alana Dakos. Birthday socks for her friend....who has already had her birthday. (oops. That's what... Continue reading

hi, Millie Mae. I’m exhausted just reading about all your outdoor responsibilities. No wonder you need a nap! I’m not much of a blankie guy, but

Hi, my friends. Freddy here. Yeah, I know. I'm looking particularly adorable today, don't you think? This is my latest nap-fort. I have them all over the house. To make a good one, you must seriously fluff pillows. Sometimes, if there are too many pillows, I have to toss a... Continue reading

I’ve lusted after this since it came out. I’m using some stash yarn and have my fingers crossed I don’t run out! Eep! Sent from my iPhone
Toggle Commented Aug 17, 2018 on following my mojo..... at woolythyme
I've come to the conclusion that my mojo has simply moved north. Neither of us wants to knit with cotton. Or linen. Or make sleeveless anything. I've tried to be practical and knit appropriate things for my climate...and I'm not a happy camper knitter. Of course, being practical and logical... Continue reading

Hi, My Friends. Freddy here. (This may look like the same post I wrote yesterday, but it isn't. I got a picture loaded....which was exhausting in and of itself.) So, I'm doubly E-X-H-A-U-S-T-E-D!!!!! I had some friends visit for 46 hours the beginning of the week and I've been napping... Continue reading

Thanks, Miss Caroline. I, personally, have continued to have wonderful days. I think Mom just freaked out over those ants (a problem we hadn’t had for over a year!!!), but she’s good now that they are gone!

Thanks, Miss Lee. I keep telling mom…life is just one big surprise package. Embrace it!

yes, miss Deb….she’s a keeper. Hoping I’m a keeper, too!!!

Thanks, Stu and Basil. I need to remind mom of her ‘bunny’ years. She had a bunny once who tore up her whole dorm room. I’m a real bargain compared to that!!!
Toggle Commented Jul 31, 2018 on I made my mom cry..... at woolythyme
Hi, my friends. Freddy here. Yeah. It's true. I made my mom cry today, but really, it wasn't all my fault. We woke up this morning and there were ants crawling all over the kitchen countertop. A little spray of RAID, the can was left on the counter so the... Continue reading

i guess we both have great taste in shawls!!!
It really was a nice pattern. Long narrow that wraps well like a scarf. Sent from my iPhone
I’m embarrassed to say that I haven’t done the blocking before the photo op!!! I feel pretty confident it will take care of it. Otherwise I guess I can’t wear if with white!!!! Sent from my iPhone
You got me!!! And that tangled yarn stuff. Absolutely THE WORST. I have a skein that probably tangled 15 years ago and why I haven’t thrown it out is a mystery. Sent from my iPhone
Surprise! I'm actually still knitting, and if you knit enough, occasionally you'll actually finish something. My 'something' is Amazing Day by Joji Locatelli. I love everything she designs, so I was looking forward to this little project. I bought it as a kit. It was going to be the happy,... Continue reading
