I'm here honing my Crafting, sharpening my mind, and keeping my hands limber. More than that you'll have to discover for yourself.
Well, Ladies and Gents(?) of Knitting Daily,
I will need to take a brief "vaccation," as it were, from Knitting Daily and the Interweave sites. There are simply too many "real world" obligations I need to meet before I can "putter around" online. For what it was, having the three friends who replied to my friend requests, I enjoyed myself. But, it really just doesn't seem to be "in the cards" for me to have any social life apart from my family and (should I ever acquire any again) my co-workers. It has ever been so in my life and while not exactly where I wanted to be at this point in my story, since it got horribly delaid on the way to publication--to say nothing of printing (metaphorically speaking, of course) this is where I am at present. In the place I meant to begin more than a decade ago. Oh well. "All's well that ends well," right? Anywho, in the immortal words of Mr. Bilbo Baggins of Bag End, "This is the end. I'm going away now. Good-bye."
When enough time has past that I may rejoin you all, I shall. Thank you for your time.
On Thursday of this past week, my boyfriend's mom very graciously gave her son and I bicycles. It's been fabulous having a bike to ride around our neighborhood:) It's been even better having something that my boyfriend and I can do together while being outside of our apartment:)
I haven't ridden a bicycle in at least a couple decades, so the bike rides we've taken so far have been wonderful! I missed that about the part of my life I spent overseas, as well as the part of my life still graced by my father's presence. Daddy passed away when I was twelve.
I truly hope that there are many more bike rides with my beloved in my future!
Hooray for friends! Real friends, even if I can't "see" them. I'd love to tell you all just how much I appreciate all of you, but I don't think this program would allow that long a post. Besides, if I were to attempt it, I'd still be writing many several years from now because like anything "worth saying in Old Entish" (to paraphrase Tolkien slightly) this would take "a very long time to say."
What I can say is thank you.
Hello Knitting Daily,
My mom got super sick last month and is undergoing a medical evaluation today to determine if her illness is progressing as it should, or if it's worsened. Please, if you are the praying type, pray for her. If you are the "sending healing" type, please do that for her as well. In short, any way you can, spare a blessing for my mom.
I'm 35 years old, and very capable of caring for myself, and "the whole nine yards" but I'd rather not bury my mom one second earlier than I must. So, please, send her a little love so she can get better.
