due to increasingly frustrating computer difficulties, i am going to have to stop blogging for a while. it really annoys me to have to this, because i enjoy blogging. i have several drafts written into which i can’t insert photos…
anyway. i’ll be be back
soon eventually. hopefully with a functioning shift key.
I am going to take a blog break. You may have guessed that by now, but I felt like making it official. In the past, declaring a blog hiatus has made me suddenly begin posting a whole lot, but I wouldn’t hold out for that if I were you.
That being said, I hope it isn’t too long. I miss blogging.
It has been quite a month. (Lots and lots of crafting and doing) Details to come. Sorry for the almost-month-long break.
I don’t have much more than that to post yet, but I had to let it out. Knitting has been put aside for so long and I haven’t finished anything in forever.
No longer, I say!
Hopefully later today I will post a delicious popsicle recipe, a picture of Walter in the sun hat I made for him yesterday, and a knitting update.
I have still been doing some knitting and sewing these days, but I just haven’t felt like posting about it… I’m going to try to round up some of the more interesting things that I have going on in the next few days.
It may be that I’m just distracted by being extremely pregnant. Eight days till my due date….
…a laptop that will never work again.
I have been up to all kinds of knitting and sewing and canning fresh apples, but I’ll have to wait to show you all until I get some commuter access…. Not sure when that will be. Sorry, everyone!
… I am completing things in my own way. (As in late. haha.)
December 27 Social web moment. Did you meet someone you used to only know from her blog? Did you discover Twitter?
Hmmmm. I guess I blogged more last year, does that count? I definitely Facebook’ed a lot more last year. Nothing new, though.
December 28 Stationery. When you touch the paper, your heart melts. The ink flows from the pen. What was your stationery find of the year?
Home made cards. Absolutely.
December 29 Laugh. What was your biggest belly laugh of the year?
That would have to be the time when I was playing peek-a-boo with Edda and I sneezed suddenly. She was so overcome with laughter that I could not help joining in. We both laughed so hard that we got the hiccups! (Yes, parenthood makes you decidedly uncool. I don’t really care.)
December 30 Ad. What advertisement made you think this year?
How about I change this one up a bit and say which was my favorite ad? I don’t think there was one that made me think. My favorite ad (on tv) that I can remember off the top of my head was the yellowtail wine commercial in which a couple is having lunch on a rooftop and the girl spills a bottle of wine and expresses her grief operatically. (My love, what have I done? My burden is too heavy!) I’m a huge fan of red wine, and it kind of made me think of me, only not quite to that extreme.
December 31 Resolution you wish you’d stuck with. (You know, there’s always next year…)
I have actually NEVER made a resolution. Until this year, that is. This year my resolution is to organize/decorate my house.
I decided (very, very late in the game) to do this blog challenge, “The Best of 2009.” I will not be starting from the beginning, but I will go ahead and do December 25th and 26th today. (Don’t worry, I’ll keep it short.)
December 25 Gift. What’s a gift you gave yourself this year that has kept on giving?
That I gave myself….. It would honestly have to be my beautiful, blue socks. I’m not just saying that because this is a knitting blog. I guess either the socks must be totally awesome or I just don’t give myself gifts very often.
December 26 Insight or aha! moment. What was your epiphany of the year?
Now this is embarrassing. It was definitely the moment when I realized that the reason that my biscuits have never been good is because I have been over-kneading them. I have agonized over my stupid, hard biscuits for years and it was a glorious realization when I discovered the problem. (It’s really easy to over-knead. I don’t really knead at all anymore. I just kind of smush the dough once or twice, then pat it out and cut.)
Knitting/Christmas photos to come! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I know I did!
I really have been meaning to update this blog. I enjoy blogging. But lately, real life has been soooo distracting. I’m still working away on my bunny mural. I’ve got eleventy-one baby wips (and other kinds, too). I’ve got classes, a new puppy, housework, a baby in my tummy (who happens to be taking over more and more of my personal space every day), and a Spanish class to teach. It’s not more than I can handle, but I think it’s definitely as much as I can handle.
However, I will blog about my various knitting projects soon. (no, really, I will!) I just need to find my digital camera…
