I can’t believe it’s been a week since I’ve posted! What excuses can I offer?? Well, for one, my podcast. Make sure to check out the latest episode! Fun, prizes, and entertainment galore. ☺
It’s also baseball season, so I’ve been logging some time at the Little League fields. In fact, I’m typing this at 8:30 on Sunday morning, while Ben is at practice. Early Sunday morning practices should be illegal, in my opinion. We are 7 & 0 though, so maybe it’s working.
Other stuff… knitting
(Please excuse the parts of the layout that my scanner ate)
And helping my friend Jen with the first-ever Freedom From Self-Improvement Day! It’s a day designed to give you a break from beating yourself up. And we all can use one of those! Check it out, sign the Declaration of Independence, and stay tuned for more activities as May 15 nears.
The rest of life is the usual… sick kids, traveling husbands, and homework, homework, homework.
Of course I have a zillion more favorites, and if we had a category for the Knitting Blog Awards, I've got a few to nominate... like Robyn, Marly (who has an addictive podcast herself -- Yarn Thing!), Ragan, Kristie, Holly, and a few others... Can you tell I'm trying hard not to leave anyone out?
Gosh darnit, just take a look at my blog lists over there ---->. Let's just go ahead and give 'em all an award.
For those in the scrappin' world, you probably have heard of the incomparable Angie Lucas, managing editor extraordinaire of Simple Scrapbooks Magazine (simply the best scrapbooking magazine under the sun). Not a scrapbooker? Then you're likely more interested in the lovely scarf that Angie is wearing... her bday present from moi.
Angie is so awesome. Great editor (she makes every article she touches GOLDEN). Great person (so relaxed and funny!). Great wife and mom (just ask her hubby and stepson!). Great friend. I love hanging with her when I get the (unfortunately) rare chance. All this, and she can do the splits, too!
