the long holiday weekend…

I spent a good amount of time knitting this past weekend.  Partly in thanks to the large amount of rain that decided to swing on in and ruin my plans!  Well, not so much ruined -- but adjusted that is for sure. I'm sure i've mentioned before, but I'm Scottish (my mom was born there) … Continue reading the long holiday weekend…

blogging is hard…

I know I've said this before -- I have so many things that run through my mind during the day where a pen and paper isn't at my finger tips.  I think "that's a great thing i want to be sure I get down on 'paper' (electronic paper really) and put on my blog" and … Continue reading blogging is hard…

I'm not completely turned off by them tho.  I found … Continue reading thunderstorms…

I have the ideas at the most inconvient times...in the shower, driving to work, during work (which is rare - work is so new … Continue reading lost in the hustle and bustle
