  • Weekending

    It’s been a quiet weekend so I thought I’d join Karen today. Sadly, it went much too fast.

He is the only out-bound student (meaning he is going abroad next year) from our […]

  • Yarn Along :: February 22, 2017

    Well, this was meant to go up yesterday but I’ve been battling a migraine since going back to school.  I keep meaning to check if it’s a full moon!  Truly, though, the kids aren’t the cause of the migraine but their exuberance makes it difficult to cope at times. We had a long weekend for […]

My Giants/Hanukkah socks haven’t progressed much since knitting the other night. […]

  • I May Have Problem

    So my son has a great opportunity to spend the day at the United Nations but, we thought, he needed a photo ID. Naturally school IDs have not been given out yet (um, it’s November). We literally tore the house apart looking for his birth certificate which we did eventually find after we learned he didn’t […]
