Part of me is delighted, because last year I knitted AWESOME jerseys but the rest of me is unimpressed because I like summer and very much dislike winter. (And it's coming!)

Should I add indigo or teal … Continue reading Your Wildest Dreams

I'm not sure I can play music any louder today. Apparently, the album I've decided I need to hear right now is "Lost Highway" by Bon Jovi.And yes, I do know the words to every song. No doubt the neighbors are unimpressed. This week, I need this so there ya go.Music is like a blanket … Continue reading She put the boy back in cowboy.
