So I knit. And I think about knitting. I think about those who knit before me. The lore of knitting and the lure of knitting. It is all about how I knit in my life and what knitting means to me.

Friday 40 -Week 22

  1. On my day off, I did some stuff. It was nice.
  2. This text to Jake: "Also, sorry I spelled Janelle incorrectly. I think I was thinking of how gazelle-like she is. And also Janelle and gazelle rhyme and I'm a sucker for a good rhyme."
  3. Sometimes, we get a chance to have a do-over. And my kids are always so gracious by allowing them. I'm pretty lucky that way. 
  4. This text to Jake: "Can you bring some booze?"
  5. Tony: "Why is it that whenever we are in your office, we wind up talking about alcohol?"
  6. The whole 'That's what she said' thing? Apparently men will say that for the rest of all time. Us women are so lucky. 
  7. Actual, giant, fluffy flakes of snow falling. It is so beautiful in the nighttime sky. 
  8. I love this time of year. It is cold enough to be able to store your alcohol on the back porch but not so cold that it freezes it. 
  9. I think it is great that my mom thought she was going to have a sleepover with six children, let them do whatever they wanted, and think that they would still be pleasant to be around. Because no, you cannot allow six children to fry their brains on electronics until the wee hours of the morning and have them be pleasant. It just doesn't work that way. There is no medal for this. 
  10. I am a Taboo goddess. I am. I really am. I am just excellent at this game. Johnpaul is not.
  11. Vegetable patties, osso buco, Kuku Kazoo, and coconut cake. 
  12. Me: "So it's pretty much girls rule, boys drool." Janelle: "Yeah. That's my takeaway." 
  13. David: "That was involuntary, actually." Me: "So you admit there are voluntary ones?" David: "In life, yes."
  14. If my sister spends the night at my house, she will in fact scare the shit out of me in the morning when she wakes up. She won't mean to, but that is what will happen.
  15. Today is the day we have. This moment. This is happening right now. 
  16. George to me as I was pouring out an old bottle of wine: "You sure about that, mom?"
  17. Eva Kay giving clues in Taboo: "David sometimes forgets to wear these." Aidan and George in perfect unison: "PANTS!" Eva Kay: "No." Aidan and George in perfect unison "ITS NOT???" {for the record, Eva Kay thinks David forgets to wear belts}
  18. Plans for a little of this in April
  19. Would you like your shit sandwich with an olive? Everything sucks sometimes. And it is going to be okay.
  20. Sometimes my students make me laugh. Sometimes they make me want to cry. 
  21. Chicken pot pie soup is a wonderful thing on a wintry day.
  22. Not knowing how absolutely freezing it was going to be allowed me to remain blissfully ignorant. Until  I stepped outside.
  23. I love that my cat curls up next to me. It makes me believe that he really does love me.
  24. Meals made in the slow cooker.
  25. Coffee ready and waiting for me, thanks to the WeMo. 
  26. Finishing reports in just the nick of time.
  27. Updating goals in just the nick of time.
  28. Sometimes, it is a good thing when something really bad happens, because it means that somebody who needs help may get help.
  29. I don't believe it is true that a student only needs to have one good friend. But I do believe that it makes things a whole lot easier.
  30. Starting projects. Finishing them would be even greater, but I'm trying to be realistic.
  31. I'm learning all the words to Blank Space on my drive to work. Turns out, she doesn't have a "long list of Starbuck's lovers." Who knew. 
  32. I'm condsidering giving up electronics. 
  33. I'm not really considering giving up electronics.
  34. Pictures of a certain pink bike being sent this way.
  35. This text: "There is a much bigger story going on about your love, live, and soul's journey. Your goal is not to rid yourself of grief, but instead to see the happiness in your future and remove all the barriers between you and happiness."
  36. This text: "My dear experienced divorcess, please tell me I will be fine..." 
  37. Hands Free Mama
  38. This: xoxo before you go
  39. Health and energy and love and so many good things in life.
  40. The Love You Love
