Something new.

Thank goodness for a stash of stitch dictionaries! 

 'Opposites Attract' yarn in 'heaven and earth' from Barking Dog Yarns.

I'm knitting two at a time on separate sets of far so good.

What are your favorite "opposites" that "attract"?
Peanut butter and chocolate, William Powell and Myrna Loy...just to name a couple (LOL)!!

Friends in your life are like pillars on your porch. 
Sometimes they hold you up and sometimes they lean on you. 
Sometimes it's just enough to know they're standing by.

breakfast for supper

Hope is a good breakfast but a bad supper.
~Francis Bacon, Sr.  

Clearly, one needs to have more 'breakfast' for supper!

I love waffles for dinner...what about you, what's your favorite breakfast for dinner?

just an inconvenience

What does a neuroknitter do when work stuff goes awfully awry...again...
...and again?

After the meltdown...?

hot tea...check.
knitting...check and check and check.

There's nothing that a warm cup of tea, pretty macarons, and a toasty pair of new socks can't fix!

Sigh...that's so much better.

If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat,
if your house is on fire, then you've got a problem. 
Everything else is inconvenience.

pixels 'n prose

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.

From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.

But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate

To say that for destruction ice
Is also great

And would suffice.

Life is so brief that we should not glance either too far backwards or forwards…
therefore study how to fix our happiness in our glass and in our plate.

life is good

I can't believe it has been so long since my last post. 
Just between you and me, 2013 could've started off better than it did.  

Not only do I not have a knitting shot to start the 2013 blog year....
(and a lot of knitting has been accomplished)
...I don't even have a shot of the brownies that were the result of the cooking that prompted these shots!
(I have it on good authority that they were tasty!)

I'm back now...
...and back on track.

Life is good. 

"It's snowing still," said Eeyore gloomily. 
"So it is." 
 "And freezing." 
 "Is it?"
"Yes," said Eeyore. 
 "However," he said, brightening up a little, 
"we haven't had an earthquake lately."
