March? Surely not……..
Sure is. Now I know why someone says “I’m too busy to blog….). Happens to me all the time, I guess.
So warm and sunny today that I could be lulled into hauling out the cutoffs and shorts and sandals…….well, not quite. And now I hear from the weatherman I sleep with that there’s a whole bunch of snow coming here next week. Spring Break week. Used to go somewhere warm then. Well, that will probably be the living room and fireplace for me! That’s no problem…….lots of knitting to work on………..
The Olympics are over, and there were some really great moments, weren’t there? The Canadian gold on the last day was so disappointing, but who better to win if we couldn’t than our good northern neighbors? Yesterday the Yarn Harlot wrote a really nice post about how Canadians feel and are celebrating, citing the US in a positive way, and it’s really a good thing to have them as neighbors. Just think – We could be next to Mexico or something……………..:^/ - just sayin’.
Saw a very sobering film in Indian Studies yesterday – award-winning “Lost Sparrow“, a true story about the awful death of two young Crow brothers in upstate NY a few decades ago. There is so much that the white nation in the US has never known about. This is just one of so many sorrowful stories that don’t make the news or history books. Anything about little boys just reduces me to a puddle of tears.
DH is off the crutches and cane and back in business again. Hurry, Spring! I want some 2010 flower pictures for this place!
Working to finish up the Mystery KAL sock, Girls Night Out, on ravelry, from Knitters Brewing Company. I’m a few weeks behind, but I’ll make it soon! These are the dancing girls, showing the heel which will be visible when I’m in Birkenstocks! I’m close to finishing the toe on #1. I have become a slow knitter, and it’s tax season, too, of course. Half a dozen clients have checked in already. Not to mention working at the antique mall and selling on eBay, and of course, Native American immersion!
I’m going to design some socks soon, and hopefully sell the pattern.
