Yes, I have been gone for awhile. And i feel a little bit bad about that, but really, I have just been in a quiet, even, uneventful place. Work is going swimmingly...who knew I would like 5th graders...most days, anyway! It isn't as much fun as kindergarten, but neither is it as much stress. Perhaps I am making a difference with these few (well, 26!) that I tutor...at least they know they are loved and appreciated and safe and not the bottom of the heap, for awhile.
My knitting is coming along. I have had to rip out a few rows, but only once! I am learning to knit more loosely so that the yarn will actually slide over the needles! In the middle of knitting one day, I got up to leave the room for only a minute and this is what I came back to...
It has been an extremely mild winter here and for weeks and weeks I was afraid I was going to have to take the blame for that. I bought boots. Good to 25 degrees below and 10' tall. They are the first boots that I have bought for years. And the very tallest (I have she serious sized calves that don't play well with most boots) that I have ever had. Last year in our snowpocalypse I had to live with little short boots, so this year I was determined to be ready...And here are the lovely, languishing (yes, I wanted to use that word really much) boots all ready...and waiting...and waiting....and waiting.
I even walked to work today in my new boots...easier than cleaning off the car!
A friend's first grandbaby was born and he needed a little woolie art for his bedroom.
And this is what my little husband does for fun. He takes little pieces of paper, folds them and
So, see I have been happily puttering away here.
Oh, and trying to choose a stove and fridge! We want gas and no electronics or gadgets....
Hope you come back to visit and read. I will try not to be so long this time. I did finally figure out how to do it all on my new MacBook Pro....well, I think I did.
Can you see it and read it?
Share your love with lots tomorrow!
