Pretend It’s Wednesday

Pretend today is Wednesday and just humor me for a bit.  I intended to post from the airport yesterday but then our travels went kinda freakshow crazy and that was the end of all ideas about posting happy, yarny pictures.   We are home from our vacation in Maine and we had an awesome time. […]

Wednesdays: Works in Progress

First up:  Boston Terrier Mittens.  This pattern is fun, fun, fun.   I had lusted over these mittens on Lorette’s blog for quite some time.   One reason is that this little miss entered our lives in December.  Her name is Kinsey, she spent her entire life in a puppy mill and has many health […]

Maine

We have returned to Maine, a place I fell in love with one year ago.   Last June, we came to Maine and enjoyed Acadia National Park.  Yesterday, we returned.  This year we are in Camden and we are enjoying the midcoast region.    We are very different people than we were when we left […]

Little Victories

All of my irrational Bigfoot fears from childhood (and, okay… sometimes adulthood) aren’t seeming all that wackadoodle anymore.  Fancypants scientists have decided to research whether they exist or not.  I feel just a little more normal now.  Baby steps, baby steps. (BTW… am I the only Bigfoot-obsession-overcomer that didn’t know folks also call these things Yeti?  Sounds […]

Flash Gordon

Georgia Kate had another MRI today, a flash MRI to be exact.  A flash MRI is where the kid isn’t sedated, the kid is wrapped up in a sheet and is perfectly happy with this arrangement until you strap a belt across their chest.  Then out come the headphones and head gear that hold the […]
