Hoping and wishing…

For smooth roads for all who are on them and safe travels over the holiday weekend… For car repairs to hold up for a 2-hour drive, then the 2-hour drive back a few days later… For any good job news to come on top of the bad (didn’t get the job I’d interviewed for a […]

Why I don’t crochet anymore…

Yes, that’s true – I used to crochet all the time. In fact, it was something I learned right after college and I crocheted all the time, pretty much right up until I had my kids. I taught friends how to crochet even, and they taught others as well. I crochet in kind of an […]

I found my Christmas spirit…

I really did! It didn’t start to ‘feel’ like Christmas until a couple of days beforehand though. I’m not sure why the whole season seemed to zoom by and really not even hit me until then. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I shopped mostly online, so hadn’t set foot in […]

Wishing you…

Day tripping on Day 3…

I really can’t believe how quickly this week is going by – and we’ve done hardly anything that I had originally planned… But that’s ok – it leaves us more to fill the last couple of days before Christmas with.  On Tuesday, Ron was able to bring the van home so that I could take […]

One day down…

So the first day of Christmas break went pretty smoothly! The girls played together really well for the most part, even though we were stuck at home all day with no transportation. I didn’t even have to break out the craft stuff (yet), but I think that’ll come tomorrow. The girls don’t really play with […]

Two weeks…

Christmas break is always an interesting experience. It used to be that it was my only ‘vacation’ for the year – I used to make sure I had at least enough vacation days saved up to be able to take the whole time between Christmas and New Year’s off and get over a week to […]

It’s (still) all about socks…

I seem to be on a mission lately – I’m having so much fun making socks that I really haven’t had any kind of motivation to try anything else. And there’s nothing wrong with that – because socks are not only fun and cute to look at, but useful when it’s 20 degrees outside. Right?  […]
