One Year Ago…

One year ago, I was experiencing a seriously rough time. Like, life-changing rough. I didn’t know WHERE I wanted to live, or HOW I was going to live. All I knew was that I was suddenly single, and that everything was changing. So much has happened in the past year. It’s so different, and so […]

Dig Those Crazy Ramparts

Happy Independence day, fellow Americans! And welcome to the 2008 edition of the Fast-Topic-Changing Fourth of July. I’ve been ignoring verypink for the last couple of weeks, but with a decently good reason. I also haven’t been taking as many photos as I normally do, so I’m recycling (recycling, good!) some of my self-portraits for […]

Possums – 2, Basenjis – 0

I have another chapter to My Sensitive Security System…this time with photos! It all starts calmly enough. Last night I was home from teaching a knitting class, watching Deadliest Catch and knitting.

Yes, this child is adorable. Next…! Last weekend, The Knitting Nest hosted Franklin Habit on his 1000 Knitters […]

Don’t touch that dial! It’s time for Fast-Topic-Changing Friday…with your host, Strawberry Shortcake. One expects verypink to be a bit pink and girlie, right? Well, this week it’s double the long eyelashes, hair bows, and mani/pedis. Because… Suddenly there are equal numbers of boys and girls in this house. This is Mia, a girl I’m […]

The Return of the Grumpy Knitwear Model

The people are real. The cases are real. The rulings are final. This is Fast-Topic-Changing Friday! If you didn’t get that, it only means that you don’t watch Judge Judy. Off the needles – another One Skein Wonder, but with some modifications. Like, two skeins. I added sleeves to this one, and used 2×2 ribbing […]

Faster, Puppydog!

Fast-topic-changing? Not today. There has been one constant topic all week. It starts with a “d”, ends with a “g”, and has a bunch of badness in the middle. I’ve had custody of all four dogs this week. Little Lou… Manly Gus… This is a yoga pose called “peeing dog”. Handsome Abe…. And Ike. Besides […]
