Saturday night: chicken and dumplings, and then sitting in my sweatpants on the couch under my favorite blankie with my knitting with a beer in front of me. Party on!

So, +Pinterest - You suggest a pin for me. It's a recipe for baking bread. I visit the link and I like it, so I pin it.

Later on that day, I go to the pin again to look at it, and I get a message that Pinterest has blocked it because it "might be leading to spam."

But, but, but... you suggested it to me. And it didn't link to anything but a bread recipe. 

You are strange.

Italian Astronaut +Samantha Cristoforetti shows off the fancy yellow hand-knit socks that my wife contributed to.
Of course the many knitters involved in the #Astrosocks program are dying to see a clear still shot in the cupola, but no pressure!

Feeling grateful this morning that the shoulder I injured in volleyball on Friday night seems to have healed itself. Yay for rest and lots of sleep. :)

I want you to know in your bones that your only path to success is through a continuum of mundane, unsexy, unexciting, and sometimes difficult daily disciplines compounded over time. ~ Darren Hardy from The Compound Effect

You can't please everybody all the time, but you can eat cake, and that's better anyway.

Blogging: To Make - The choice to be a maker of things. #handmade  
I've been kind of whiney as of late. I'm not proud of it. I don't like whiney people, and so I really don't like myself when I become one of them. But I whined. I've been whiney because I've become painfully aware of how many things there are to do each day. So many things to work on, ...
