Cake and wine and all things blogging....

So I'm getting back into this "blog" thing. At least I think I am. I added "Blogs" to my Weekly-To-Do-List and attempting to fit it in. Last night and today, I've spent oodles of time looking at blogs, signing up for new ones, trying to catch up on some, researching stuff to do and post on mine, etc. I have realized that I could get sidelined just doing that. What good is read-ing if there is no do-ing?

Now here I sit with a piece of my fantastic chocolate birthday cake and a glass of red wine so I can write a little bit. What can be better than that? Knitting for sure, but that will have to wait a few minutes. At least till after my cake. ;) It's so nice here right now. The kids are in bed, my husband is out in the garage working on his own hobby (motorcycles), and I sit here in the quiet. I have full control of the remote (not that there's anything on [insert eye-rolling here]). I can hear my own thoughts. I can concentrate and not be interrupted by little voices. How lovely!

Still cruising along on my nephew's afghan. Man, I can't wait to be done! With all the perusing I've done today, I'm jealous of all the fabulous knits that others have been doing. Wish I had more time to do that. Guess that's the life when you've got little kids and trying to work out running your own house. Soon I'll have to be knitting hats and scarves for all the little darlings I know, then maybe a project will be for me. What to make, what to make?!? Time to start a Possible-Project File I think....

Squares for my nephew's afghan (light blue, medium blue, and chocolate brown)

Another day... how I'm FLYing

I've been doing pretty good with FLYing even though I haven't been posting it for a while. :) I changed things around lately as I hate getting up in the morning. I have a FLYcleaning time in the afternoon and then I don't worry about too much stuff in the morning. Over the summer I made progress with sorting through stuff and decluttering. I didn't get as much done as I was hoping but at least it's a start and progress.

As part of my volunteering, I do publications for our Women's Ministries (WoMin) group at church. One of the publications I work on is our newsletter. This year, instead of just publishing it, I'm writing a column: Domestic Diva. Exciting eh?!?! I wrote my first one for our Fall Edition which is just coming out now. I'll be posting the articles here (edited for us) in case you all want to read it. Maybe I'll have to start a second blog.... ;)

Yes I actually do knit.

I haven't posted much about anything but I actually do knit. :) I've done lots of afghans, hats, scarves, baby blankets,socks, dishcloths and towels, and chair feet to name a few. Right now though I'm working on the second part of my nephew's afghan. I completed the first half and gave it to him 2 Christmases ago. With a new baby though, I wasn't able to get much else completed. So lately I've gotten back into it. I'm charging away one square at a time. It would be great to get it completed for this Christmas but we'll see. I also have a couple other things on the go too. Working on dishcloths and chair feet as I've got lots of chairs. Will post pictures after I take some. ;)

Hello! Where did you go?!?

OMG! I can't believe it's been almost a year since I posted on here. Where did I go?!?! Life gets busy and when you've got nothing to say.... LOL

So I'm going to try to get better at this. And post a little more often. Going to add it to my Weekly To Do List and hopefully I'll show up here a little more often.

Today is my birthday. How exciting! It's really just like every other day and I don't feel any older. Guess it's a gradual thing. Wish I hadn't stayed up so late last night. Thanks Hunny!
