Much to do... Too much to do!
Crazy busy.  Taking on an extra job which more than doubled my expectations.  That would satisfy me, however, in a delusional moment I said YES to playing an organ/trumpet concert!  And it's right around the corner now!  In Gallup, NM, at a tiny church whic...

Dogs and cats
We've had dogs and cats, and they have tolerated each other quite well.  In fact, when our previous dog got old and blind and deaf, the cats would walk her around the neighborhood, I swear, they would steer her home. Then the dog was gone and the cats, Bonn...

Fifth Birthday!
Doll cakes are a tradition... My grandmother was a master cake maker, and baker. (She had weekly standing orders for dozens of rolls:  Not uncommon to see her kitchen filled with 20-40 dozen rolls rising. But I digress...)  As the only grandchild for 18 yea...

A Night Out
Yes, I own a dress!! This is the "National Theater in Bergen" , for lack of a better name.  Impressively grey on the outside, but look at this ceiling art!  And the lobby/refreshment area.    I think the ceiling is gorgeous, and very in tune with the play w...

A Lesson Learned?
Five years ago I knitted an excruciatingly complex shawl.  "Europa" Crescent...tiny needles, lace weight yarn, nupps, double decreases, you name it... it's all there!  And I loved that shawl... even though I wore it mostly bunched up around my neck under a ...

Patience
Knitting...  Most people say, "I don't have the patience to knit."  I say they aren't obsessive enough to knit!   (Big smile!  You know I'm right!) Orchids... Most people don't have the patience to let an orchid blossom a second, third or fourth time.  I al...

A Little Late, but Hopefully Not Forgotten
As I wonder where the past few months have gone, I wish everyone a Happy New Year!  And lots of wool, and time to knit in 2015. As I look for some photos to document that I, indeed, haven't been idle in these past months, I found Yarn Harlot's repeat of how...

And Then I got BUSY!
My first week of full-time daycare was last week.  Let's say it starts around 7 when I am greeted by a cheery little girl who wants grandma to play a game.  And it ends around supper time.  There's lots to do, and we will probably do repeats this week becau...

Around Town
You would think I was fit... but all I can attest to is that I can walk. Most work days, I take Juju to the tram, we travel one stop, get off and walk to the daycare building.  It's a nice walk, mostly through a big park. My return trip is all walking.  It'...

Those Ivories. Non-knitting Post
Warning:  This post has no pretty pictures of yarn, and is totally self-involved b.s.  reflections. Though I rarely mention it, ivories (piano keys) and ebonies (organ keys) are as intertwined in my life as eating, sleeping, knitting, relationships, and bod...

Socks... Stripes!
Looking back at a previous blog post, I wrote:  "Next: Stripey Socks". And here they are. Of course, I don't NEED more sock yarn, but this tangled me up and threw me to the ground, so I bought it... In the little city of Steinkjer, Norway, I found myself in...

I always enjoy my meal at Boone's. Excellent and varied choices! Anything with coconut or mango are excellent.

Great sushi! Very happy that we have a reasonable place for sushi. I always get a specialty roll and Thai iced-tea. Always satisfied!
