Sunny Day, Chasing the clouds away..."

My apologies to "Sesame Street" but we have had three really nice days in a row! With the weird weather that has been unheard of. On Tuesday we had 2-3 inch diameter snowflakes! Friday I helped my dad plant bulbs and dig out bushes on the east ... Read more

My KAL at the local might be going into a serious time-out. The facts: Traveling Woman Shawl knit in lace weight. Many, Many stitches on the needle, I counted twice and had the proper number of stitches for the size I was knitting. Started the ... Read more
Today is not a "Me" Day
Saturday, April 20, 2013      3 comments

A group is attending the Iowa Federation of Handweavers and Spinners in Eldridge, Iowa. That is a really good thing. The "not me" part of the day is that I take over as president for two years. I hate it. The only reason I said I would do it ... Read more
A "Me" day--almost
Friday, April 19, 2013      4 comments

I am not at work--Good. I can set my own tasks for the morning--Good. I have more on my list than I will be able to accomplish--Bad (but normal for me). I will go to my parents to help them this afternoon--Good. I will be able to get good coffee... Read more
Today was a walking day, again
Thursday, April 18, 2013      0 comments

Walking across the river three times! The first time--going to work--the wind was so strong I had to hold the umbrella with both hands to prevent it from flying off in the wind. But the totally weird thing was, on the wind, the scent of bacon! ... Read more
Spinning - not with a bicycle

Last night was the guild spinners meeting. Sometimes that is the only time I spin. Right now I am working on a lovely polworth wool that is dyed all shades of red; from very light (not pink) red to a red that is almost black. The program was f... Read more
TAX Man!
Tuesday, April 16, 2013      3 comments

This can be taken two ways: 1. "Damn the Man" for needing taxes or 2. Tax Man You Are The Best!!!! We are taking this as # 2. This year DH and I took our information to a tax person, mostly to do a check to see if we were doing it correct... Read more
Sunny early, but now I think it is going to rain
Sunday, April 14, 2013      1 comments

I was hoping to be able to do a park walk for my 10 minutes today but the rain is going to beat me to it. I do not want to be all damp and icky at the KAL. Must dig out my crochet hooks--I think I will be in the lace edging and lots of beads. ... Read more
Not doing so well with blogging

I have ideas for entries but the time gets away from me. Work has been super busy and it is not even exams yet! This morning DH and I decided to walk to breakfast and then walk to a meeting with our tax guy. He found us $$ in past returns that... Read more

For Spring! It is bright, sunny, and I think warm enough now that I can walk with just my hoodie. After knitting this morning, where I finished my scarf (Woo Hoo), I have the quiche in the oven and my bag prepped for the KAL meeting at a LYS. ... Read more
I blame it all on MostMom1...
Saturday, April 06, 2013      4 comments

...or rather, I am inspired by MostMom1. I watched her amazing video of streaking of 731 days of intentional extra movement and realized that I could do that. I was beating myself up for not doing 30 minutes a day. After watching and listening... Read more
I love early mornings
Saturday, April 06, 2013      3 comments

Especially now that the sun is getting in the sky earlier. I love to be up and doing things early. When I sleep longer I feel like I have wasted the day (this feeling only happens on weekends). It is not even 7am and I have stripped a bed, ans... Read more
Walking and more walking
Wednesday, April 03, 2013      4 comments

I have decided to concentrate more on walking and exercising rather than cut out foods. My caloric intake is very stable but I am not moving down as I would like. Perhaps walking more will not only get that moving but trim me up. DH says I los... Read more

Today started with the usual suspects meeting early morning for knitting and breakfast. We are a varied group of fiber people, pilots, and spouses of pilots. The fiber fanatics do more than just meet for breakfast on Sundays. We yarn crawl; go t... Read more
Sorry for the disappearance

This week has not been the week from hell--quite. I have been through weeks from hell and this one was bad but did not make the cut. Work is becoming more frustrating, coupled with two morning staff classes, one afternoon meeting and a day wher... Read more
