Endings and beginnings

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It's cool and overcast in my little corner of the Fort so far today, a blessing considering that I'm not ready for the heat of summer yet. Things are getting green and the complex is getting a new look as they will be painting our building next week as part of the continuing recovery from last summer's hailstorm. This last week in craft I finished both the Handwoven piece and the Knitcrate box pieces. Those will get blocked, written up and sent out on Tuesday as the mail gets the holiday tomorrow. My next self publish pattern is written and is currently also in the blocking pile. It uses two skeins of Juliespins. You can...

Lots of finishes

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It's another quiet one here in my little corner of the Fort but I think that is to be expected right now with my neighborhood continuing to stay home.

I'm either a very relaxed mom or have taught them enough over the years to take care of their own work. They know better than I do what their teachers expect of them, I'm just here to answer questions and keep them on track. Besides Amanda lost me with her math level about two months into her...

So long January!

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It's Groundhog's Day, Imbolc, Super Bowl Sunday and Palindrome Day all rolled into one, a lot for one Sunday to handle. Things here this past week have been a bit of a roller coaster. Celebrating Serra's birthday was great along with the news that she and her teammates took first in all three of their events for Science Olympiad at the competition last weekend were some of the highs. The lows? Both girls have been pretty sick this week with a cough currently torturing Amanda. Hopefully another couple days of rest with get her back on her feet. I know it's not severe because she's more upset about being sick than feeling sick, yes she...
