Look at that!

I've been blogging for a year!  Over a year in fact.  I don't want to grind this into the ground any more so this is the last time I'll type it.  I wish I could blog more.  I know you'll still be my friend if I don't, so I'll move on.
Here's what been happening around here.  Lots of spinning.  Lots.  I had to go dig some out of the stash.  Very exciting.  I have my samples all dyed up for the sock club.  So excited to get the job done.  And I'm happy with the colors.  I don't think I'm aloud to show you here and now, so we'll wait.  Here's something new too.  You can now find my fingering yarn and roving on the way to the mountain!  Cast One On is now carrying Knitted Wit.  Yay!  It is such a cute shop.  Definitely want to move in!
I've been watching Michele's progress on her socks and I'm a little jealous.  I really want to start a pair of socks.  I have plenty of yarn, perfect needles.  Just lacking a little time.  I think I'm going to ban that word.  Time.  It's now forbidden.
In the e update of life:  he is crawling!  Officially crawling.  He's been inch worming all over the floor for months, but now he's on all fours.  He can return to a sitting position from being on his tummy, pull himself up to standing with just about anything.  And, sadly our first cold. Nothing like fishing snot out of a squirmy sad baby.  But I think we're going to make it.  He's napping now and I think I'm going to finish spinning some merino/tencel.  Happy Sunday!

moving on

It's been a hectic few weeks around here.  First I had inventory at the job, then we moved into the most unfortunate teething phase yet.  We are now out of that and fighting a little baby bug.  I'm hoping to drink and sleep it away.  And of course in the midst of all this life is more life.  Finding old friends on Facebook has been a hoot.  I just finished dyeing some samples for the sock club. And I've been spinning.  Life feels very satisfying right now.  I've added a few walks to the week and what a difference a little exercise makes.
I want to wright more but I think e is finally asleep.  Thank you grandma!  I'm going to go finish the bedroom curtains finally.  I better hop to!  
I'll try to be back sooner.

So grandma is here baby sitting.  What a delight.  My desk is in nice tidy piles, I've cleared all the garbage.  I still have to file all the papers for 2008, both the family and business.  There are a many things to do but I want to keep hiding back here (where e can't see me).  So I thought I'd stop by here and say hello.  

Last time I think I caught you up on e.  I think there are new tricks every day.  This all leaves me with the less time to do _____ (fill in the blank).  All of my sitters have been snowed in or out of town.  I think personally I'm frustrated that there are so many projects to work on but no time. One project I'm avoiding is hemming a friends pants.  I almost forgot how long I was supposed to hem them to.  Grrr.  Then there is Knitted Wit.  I think I had an idea of what I wanted things to look like.  I need to readjust my expectations.  I keep reminding my self too that e will only be little for a short time and I can always craft when I'm 60, right?  

On that note, the wee one is fussing.

Happy New Year

It feels wonderful to be in 2009.  I'm not sure why there is such a relief, but I have a good feeling abut this year.  I'm a little sad I didn't do a reflection post yesterday, but I don't want to do one now.  I just want to look forward for some reason.  So how about an update instead!  

e is almost eight months old.  Last night he pulled himself up on his toy bin and stood for a few minutes.  It was pretty amazing.  I was excited that E and I were just sitting around watching all this.  He has seven teeth, I know all of them quite well.  He's been squootching (how do you spell that?!) across the floor to get shiny objects to then eat.  We've been doing finger sweeps in his mouth to prevent swallowing.  I'm pretty sure something sneaked through last night.

Well the tiger woke up too early and I have to move on with the day.  I'm looking forward to being here more, my thinking spot.  I've sure missed it.
