Good Things

Posted Nov 23, 09:01 am under .

Ah, yes! Hello there! Been awhile since I’ve been around, pardon me, while I sweep away the cobwebs. Do you like the new look?

I’ve been just kind of floating around being random since I last posted—seems like the days just needed to float on by without any real sense of order, but there were some little highlights. So, I present to you a few Good Things Since September.

1. The fog is lifting—not that glorious fog in SF, but rather the fog that my head’s been in for the last few years. Thanks to a bunch of tiny little changes (including finally accepting meds) I feel like I’m starting to get back to being myself!

2. My secret pal struck not just once, but TWICE! Once in Sept. while my mom was visiting, which explains the disappearance of the candy and pretty pink scarf she (my SP) crocheted for me. I also have some beautiful windchimes. And then I got a great package in Oct—lots of little notions and some great HUGE needles (I don’t think I’ve seen them that big). Check out the goods!


3. We survived the CH’N POPS (as Cade calls them). I’m so happy to have them over and done with—no more worrying about trying to find them in the wild either!

4. Which brings us to Halloween. In the midst of being both broke and under the duress of ch’n pops, I didn’t really think about costumes and one child was scabbed over, so what were we going to do. Why improvise, of course!



The Gauze Mummy & The Sheet Ghost!

5. There’s a couple of new babies in our homeschooling group—so of course there’s knitting for them! Here’s a little sweater I’m working on for Hazel’s sweet babe. It’s from Rowan and I’m using Rowan Wool Cotton in Rich for it—very forgiving for a cotton.


6. I’ve also been bitten by an organizing bug, which would shock anyone who knows me in person. My bedroom has been pretty much spotless for a couple of weeks now and I’m just going to slowly let it ooze out into the rest of the house. Someday I may just take over a room and have my little studio!

7. One benefit to having a little cleaning bug sitting in my ear is that the clutter was kind of tidy (for clutter) when we had Cade’s birthday party. Cade, my baby, turned FOUR on the 21st of November! What happened to my little sweet babe?? Definitely the dawn of a new age for our family.



Do you think he’ll be wondering what was up with the Spidey bandaids for a birthday gift?? Grandma’ll have some answering to do!

8. Music, music, music is back in my life! I’ve been singing up a storm for Wassail on Sundays—we’ll be performing in December. I’ve also set up new piano lessons with a friend. Something to keep me accountable and might even be reason to get a new piano that actually keeps tune—who knew one would be so helpful to have so I can play for our…

9. New Kittens! We got a pair of sweet sisters from Lynn’s FIL. His barn cat gave birth to this pair back in Sept or so and we just got them on Sunday. No names, yet, but Spot is in the running for the little one roaring in this pic. We’re thinking the other might be freckle.



What do you think Ry’s punishment should be for giving them my Mission Falls cotton to play with??

10. And now that’s it’s only 2 days to Thanksgiving, I have to announce that I am completely, totally, utterly ready for…

Thanksgiving dinner. The turkey is defrosted (well, it was fresh), I’ve got all the fixin’s—we’re ready to go! What did you think I actually would get my Christmas shopping done already? Nuts, that won’t be til Dec. 27th.

Anyhow, glad to be back!

Thoughts?
