One Special Day and 99 Others

Sep 28


Yesterday was Neal's birthday.  I love this picture taken in the meadow over the summer with George the iPhone.  Sweet little kisses among the flowers are one of life's joys, don't you think?

Last Tuesday we hit 100 days until the end of the year, and in a final push to meet some goals, Neal and I have undertaken the 100 Days Project.  We have fitness and financial goals to meet, and I have some writing and crafting goals as well.  Since I seem to fail at goals that I proclaim publicly, I'm going to keep this set mum for the most part, but I'll be sure to let you know what success I meet.

Remember when knit bloggers used to write about knitting on their blogs?  Ravelry has caused me to move a lot of what I have to say about the craft off of the blog and onto my Projects pages, and I think I want to shift back here a little more.  Right now I'm in the midst of a Clapotis (surely I do not need to link to the pattern).  I want to wear it to Rhinebeck, which means a lot of knitting ahead of me.  At some point, though, I may decide I can't achieve that goal and switch my plan.  Beth has opened a shop for her lovely handspun, and I scored about 300 yards of her Green Beer worsted.  This fantastic yarn may become a Milkweed Shawl (Rav link) if I think I can squeak by with what I have.  Anyway, that's Plan B.

Are you going to Rhinebeck?  Are we going to see each other there?  I sure hope so!


  1. Belated Happy Birthday Wishes To Neal!
    What a wonderful photo!
    I miss reading about your knitting and other craft projects. Having them back here will be wonderful.
    I’m sure if you work on your project every day you’ll be able to have it done in time. I have faith in you.

  2. I’ll be at Rhinebeck with some of the Scissor Squad! We’ll be sure to keep our eyes peeled for you. 🙂 xoxo
