- Four years into widowhood, after one year of incredible happiness and nearly 14 years of single blessedness. Have given up perfect manicures and pretty hands in order to resume playing the soprano recorder and to see if I can figure out how to play bluegrass banjo. Singing in the shower. Still really, *really* love to knit!

This just in from our newsroom!
I found the news clipping generator at Mason Dixon Knitting.
Knitting on the Miner Blanket Project continues at work; I am about 3/4 done with my mega-block.
And I began reading HP #7 last night.
I’m playing “Mom’s Taxi Service” for Fourthborn and her fiancé for the next few days. Her father, who usually takes them to work, will be out of town. The drop-off, on my way to work in the morning, will be no problem. It’s hard to forget two delightful humans Apparating on my doorstep just after dark-thirty. The home jaunt will be more of a challenge. I will have to put a sticky-note on the dashboard. Or print off a “go get the kids” note before I leave this morning and put it on my seat when I lock my car in the parking garage at work.
They’ll laugh at me, but it’s better than having them upset because I drove home on autopilot, leaving them stranded on a hot sidewalk in Texas in August.
