Yarn Along et al

In an effort to prolong my son's life,
I am reading this again.

In an effort to prolong my son's life,
I am knitting.
a lot.

It calms me.

I finished another dishcloth,
but am now out of yarn.
Being a new knitter, I don't have a stash.

I want to make a hat.


I do have a stash of books, though.
What should I pick up next?

I am looking forward to going on retreat this weekend.
in beautiful Medora, North Dakota,
gateway to Theodore Roosevelt National Park.

with my husband.

without my children.

to recharge my batteries.

because I feel a lot like this lately.

The Boy
told me this morning he loves me more than Legos.
Wow! That's love.
That earned him some points with Mom.

and made me feel better.

Miss Rose and Miss Sunshine
cleaned my bathroom for me yesterday.
to surprise me.
They left me a note.

That's love, too.

and made me feel better.

The Baby's
new favorite thing to do when I'm cooking
is to set the table.
by herself.
on her own initiative.

Girls are so very different from boys.

Say "Cheeeeeese."

To see what others are knitting and reading,
visit Ginny at Small Things.

Stay warm,
if you live near me.

Stay in the house,
if you live somewhere that got dumped with snow.

Hug your kids,
if you've got some.





  1. Your dishcloths look great, Michelle!!

  2. Love your knitting, beautiful!

    The Domestic Church is wonderful.
    We read it in our book club last year.

  3. POST IT NOTE LUB CARDS! I do it every Feb. for my hubby and kids. Makes them feel lubbed.
