I'm still the same

Don't send the dogs out to find me. I'm not lost. I've just been lazy. It crossed my mind that maybe I just didn't have much to say anymore, but being the big mouth in my family, they all know, and you should, too, that's just not true.

Last week was so busy. I accumulated a lot of miles in my hospice-mobile starting each night on one end of town and ending on the exact opposite end way after midnight. I was a Traveling Wo Man. Weeks like that really suck the soul right out of me and on several of those days I found that in addition to fuel, I was fresh out of empathy. When that happens, it's usually time for a vacation. One day will have to do, and today is it.

I have a date tonight with my daughter and my best friend. There will be no late night calls out to ply my trade, though it may be a late night.


Any thieves who now know I won't be home tonight can rest assured I've left someone in charge of protecting our domain. He'll be armed. OK, he only has teeth to attack with, but he can be fierce. Just sayin'.





A note on that cowl: The yarn is 82 yards of hand spun by Emilee and is super bulky. The free pattern on Ravelry is Marian. It took about two hours to knit, maybe three. My model is so patient with me. Handsome, too.

Glad to see you back - I've missed you. Thanks for the clip...a little Bob Seger in the morning really gets ya going.

Enjoy the night out - sounds like you deserve it.

Glad you're ok. I was concerned since last post you said you re-injured your back.

Love your model and armed guard.

Have fun at the concert.

Have a good night out, sounds like you could do with it. Love your house sitters style!

Well...I was starting to wonder about you. You usually do a post a day or.. at least several per week. Sounds like a great time tonight at the concert. Bob Seeger rocks. I want to knit one of those cowls also. Love those!

Can't beat that! I was wondering how you all have been since your father-in-law died. It was a hot and rough summer...enjoy Mr. Bob in the Motor City:>)

If I opened your door and saw Leo like that I would have to hug him. Oh my heavens I would give anything to go to a concert like that again, but it is just not in the cards. You deserve a night out gal. I been drinking the water as you suggested and you know what else I am doing. LOL

Hope you had a great night out, you deserve it.
Theat cowl looks so soft and cuddly, will your model part with it?

After the wedding (2 days!) this enormous cowl of hair I've been wearing all summer is going to be much shorter. I think. I'm not sure anymore, since the color and highlights were done I am kind of in love with long hair again. Leo's cowl? Is even better. LOVE the colors.
