For the 12th year of blogging…

…my true love gave to me…

A weekend camping and mostly unplugged. Kind of fitting, eh? 

I strolled through those first few months and WOW, was that painful!

I was a cross stitch blog, then knitting, then Squish, then farm, and then nothing for almost a full year. I’m not sure what kind of blog this is anymore. 

My first blog picture 

It seems like ravelry killed knit blogs. Most of the people I started following no longer have blogs. Margene and Cheryl are still around as well as a few of those North East people. Some people quit knitting. Some moved on to weaving and other crafty endeavors. In the past 12 years, I’ve met a few of y’all in person and I swear next year I am going to Alta to finally meet some of those Utah ladies. 

Because I am in a mood, I am going to give away a prize. (I was a comment whore in the beginning, and I apparently still am) Leave a comment letting me know how we met (blog, Ravelry, Facebook, Twitter, real life) and I will use a random number generator to give the winner their choice of :

1. The yarn and pattern for the baa-ble hat


2. A scarf woven by me


3. A skein of Beaverslide sock in Geranium and a Ravelry pattern.

Happy Saturday y’all!

I forgot to take a picture

It has been cold an rainy and I finally get to wear my Halloween pj’s. Yes, 70’s and low 80’s can be cold when we were triple digits last week. 

Happy Tuesday y’all! Don’t forget to show me What’s for Dinner tomorrow. 


Three days of keeping up with Rosie made me just want to sit on the couch and weave. Ok, 3 days of Rosie and two nights of not sleeping well. 

There was no What’s for Dinner Wednesday because I picked up rotisserie chicken from Boston Market.  Texas didn’t want to go to the gym after work, so I had to come up with dinner on the fly.

F.N. Pope (Fish Nugget) died last night, so I cleaned the tank and picked up Eric IV aka Quad Shot today. Fishy was a “rescue” fish, so he came with his name. With Quad Shot went back to naming all of our fighting fish Eric. The first two commited suicide and Trey (Eric III) was just belly up one day. 

What are you doing today?

UM…  711

Because the thing I wanted to do today has been derailed, here’s a list.

Selected ::  drafted

Sharpie :: organize

Campus :: college

Personal :: space  

Wedge :: sex

Smoke :: quit

Polish :: Pope John Paul II  

Ultimate :: Fighting Championship  

Threadbare :: linens 

NOtification :: mail

What’s for Dinner?

Since it is Wednesday, here is what is for dinner:

Garlic quinoa, roasted butternut squash and sweet potatoes, and pulled pork loin. 

Just proof that pork loin can be pulled. I use about a cup of broth, cumin, adobo, garlic and put it in my Power Cooker XL (far less expensive than that pot everyone is talking about and works fabulous) for 40 minutes. Voila!  Pulled pork loin.
