i hadn't meant to ignore the blog all week - the never ending pestilence, (song now stuck in my head,) has thrown me good & truly out of whack. not that i've ever been much in whack; but that's not the point.
thank you sweet pom for phoning to make sure all was well at the belfry!
other than pestilence, & out of whackness (real word) i have been insanely busy. to tell you even half of it would make for much too long a post, & a random one at that. here are the cliffnotes:
thehobbit has been drawing like a madman, has decided that he loves/hates knitting (never far from the tree,) saw part of star wars & decided it was too violent, is loving the secret garden, & yesterday said "mama when i own my own restaurant that i will cook at; you remember that place? where i will use my frying oil to power my trucks? well i am going to have a jukebox there. except, instead of songs from the radio, they will all be ones that i sing." (he managed to cram it all in there: chef, environmentalist, rock star!)
i have learned to bind a seam & to decrease, so am ready to venture beyond scarves & owl blankets! to celebrate i bought new needles & yarn, & am knitting another scarf. yes i know.
** edited to add: the latest issue of homeschool la is up!! **
that's all i have for you today. i'm afraid i've sunk into the funk of the pestilence, & am good for naught but bitching about it. worry not my one & only reader! this too shall pass, & before long i shall be back to my happy, crafting, blogging self; full of promises of photos not from clipart.
until then... you'll find me here.
