I had someone tell me the other day
that she was jealous that I was so organized.
It made me think seriously??....

Where is the world did anyone get an idea that
I was organized, is that what I project- AWESOME

Reality is that I am the most scattered packrack

you can possibly imagine- I have decided that by
the end of the year, at least my office needs to
appear to be organized- and in the spirit of
full disclosure- I will give you a before picture

My office/homework/library/craftroom/yarnstash
I will post the after picture in January 2013-

Sunday, September 11, 2011 remembrance

I will never forget this awful time,
as I grieve over my loss.
Yet I still dare to hope
when I remember this:

The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness;
his mercies begin afresh each morning.

Lamentations 3:20-23

...farewell Borders

Less than $100 and more than 30 novels brandnew- I have always loved Borders, the place where I have partied like a Rockstar dressed to impress the staff of Hogwarts- (HarryPotter 5/6/7 releases). I have spent countless hours in the cozy chairs amongst the classics of the literature section knitting just one more row whiles waiting for the release of Breaking Dawn the novel, and three of the four movies- where am I going to chant with the Tweens of America at 11:58pm "we want Edward" when finally there is a release of the newest cinema installment of Stephenie Meyers finest hours? *******************************

Farewell Borders, you have served me well,
don't take it too personal that I cleared out your shelves-
I promise to read them all!!!!

...something has got to give!

As usual we are totally over committed and when something has to give, the blog is always the first to go- life is great we both are working full time and just putzing around the house these days.

I can't even remember the last time that I was able to consistently blog- its been way to long!!
This summer has been flying by and before you know it- the calendar will declare its Christmas!!!


Abalone Christmas Cardigan for my Sister
Spectra Stephen West Spectra for SWAP
Pinwheel Baby Blanket for a fellow 'blockhead
Prayer Shawl for someone in need!
Passport Scarf (I have 4 in process)

Child Psychology- I have two weeks left.
I am going into the Final with a low B in the class.

How is it even possible that he is turning 21months??
before I know it we will be getting ready to send him off to college

...yup thats it, a quick update- there is just WAY too much going on!!

Sunday, February 13, 2011 night-new show

a new comedy about how friendships and romances -
though often difficult and sometimes messy but always worth the work -
both enhance and complicate our lives.
The series centers on three longtime friends
and their attempts to navigate the demands of their relationships.
Going on a two tier rating like that brought to us by the eleventh hour podcast- (like/dislike)We both LIKED it!! tears, giggles, smiles, and feeling as if we can relate, since we are the 1st of our friends to move into married with baby- it was great to see a show in which we could relate. Planning to watch it again, and looking forward to next week!

..share and share alike

...and when one door closes,
just maybe you can find a window open-
also known as I have added an author to my blog!

...just a thought- this blog was started by me for me... just as a way to try and organize and download into words and the chaos in my head.

it has evolved into a book/knitting/diary/confessional blog- but now it is about to transition again, into a place for us (yup thats right, I am sharing it with mr bee.) to share pictures, thoughts, and stories about our lives as parents, friends, and luvah's..

things will be sparatic at best, but several people (gran/aunties/nana-and friends) have been on our case to post more about the boy and less about random crap! so ask and you shall receive.

this blog has now been remodled into a family blog- I still intend to share the books I am reading, the projects I am knitting, and the many random thoughts in my head- but hey just for you guys WE will also try to make it much more about the boy-and the joy we are finding in him!

...knitting update
