Get your brain going

I like to start everyday by reading the paper. Have for years, the only difference is now with my iPad I read the digital version. Love it! I have added "7 little words"
to my daily routine. It's an app that gives you clues and letters. I love it. I never got into sudoku but this is a daily addiction.

Going to heights

Replacing a small board in the ceiling and dusting a fan required renting scaffolding. Good times

I'm finally the happy possessor of a yard waste bin. My hauler didnt have them in the past. So each week I plan on aggressively trimming my overgrown shrubs. Last week the rose bushes, this week my lovely but leggy wigellia. I'm sure my neighbors think I must have recently attended the Morticia Adams school of gardening.

This is the strangest thing. The stockinette started rolling mid way through the body. Hopefully blocking will make it lay flat


A good friends son has just been deployed to a scary place. He is military intelligence. He requested food, and basic sundries. They are in a location where 2 meals a day is the norm. Just tough to get stuff in. They announce it at knitting in case anyone would like to add a something for him and his unit to their shopping list. Anyway. Then a woman who just happened to be having lunch there stopped at the table and gave my friend a stack of bills and said for your son. Then dashed away.

A truly random act of kindness. Such a nice thing to do.

Another one done.

Finished my second yoked cardigan. What a great pattern.

Spent the weekend at the lake. Knitted, read, watched the world go by. My friend dropped off 27 pairs of crocheted booties for charity. It was motivating.

There's an app for that.

Today at knitting 3 of us had our iPads out comparing patterns and pictures on ravelry. Last week same thing. Who would have guessed a year ago I'd have to worry about having my technology charged and wireless access when I packed my knitting bag.

Well I've taken the plunge. DD2 set up a pinterest account for me. I'm not sure how far down that rabbit hole I'll find myself. I have steadfastly avoided facebook, linkedin, and twitter for years. I am an avid follower of ravelry, zite, and a handful of apps/games. I really am not sure that I need another time suck. But now I'm pinteresting with the rest of the cool kids.
