Cross-Country

I’m on the move with my family. This has been a LONG 36 hours, but we’re glad to be here. Into LAX just before midnight PST. We were 3 hours late due to delays and a surprise landing in Wichita. I knitted while E paced at the rental car center. My first towel art greeted […]

Another New Knitter

This weekend we were surprised by a visit of my cousin and her two girls from Montana. They are visiting her folks in the Bay Area and came over for the weekend. Last evening I got a call from my mom asking if I could teach the youngest to knit (she was very interested). And […]

I Miss the Students

Today and tomorrow are my last days of teaching knitting for the year. I am grateful that I am teaching locally because I get to sleep in my own bed! Photo Credit: nhuisman via Compfight cc But with the end of each teaching season I begin to miss my students. I have been doing this […]

A Day in the Life: September 28, 2013

This is my life on a Saturday: Family, volunteer work, and knitting: always woven together through any given day. I like it that way. Breakfast at a local favorite. It is my husband’s birthday today. I cut stuff up to mimic knit fabric when I design. These are conscripts from my orphan sock basket. I’m […]

Which One Are You?

You’ve heard of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, right?  You’ve probably taken it in one form or another. I find it fairly interesting, especially as I work to establish myself more visibly in my chosen fields of photography and professional teaching.  Fellow teacher and mutual friend of ours Myra Wood shared this with me today and […]

A Little Back Seat Posting

I’m on the road with two of my sons. After taking the first shift of driving, I get to relax in Ohio. Or at least the back seat of my very packed car as it rolls through Ohio. And yes, the last two photos are of my FLY KAL skirt. It’s coming along nicely.

Launching the Book: 3 Years Later

Approximately three years ago, I was headed to the same destination for the same event that I’m going to today: Stitches Midwest. But that experience was very different than my trip this year. Instead of traveling alone, I was traveling with my husband and my parents. My folks are in their 80’s and although they […]

Saturday is a Special Day

There’s a song that I learned as a child in church that says, “Saturday is a special day, it’s the day we get ready for Sunday!” I do love to take Sundays entirely off each week, giving myself a full day of rest from work and the stress of the everyday. Thus  Saturdays often are […]

Pictures Around Home

I have been traveling as is often the case given my job. So this evening I took a few moments to wander around my yard with my camera taking a few close-up shots of the various trees in my yard. The quality is not always the best, but can you guess all 6 of them?  […]

Taken for a Ride

This is a photo of me and Arlis after our first motorcycle ride together. Kellie has been all adventurous, checking things off her bucket list, and this was new to me.  Not really on my bucket list, but willing to give it a go to share something with my hubby. I made him bribe me […]
