[twitter-follow screen_name='ILiveonaFarm' show_count='yes'] Read my blog on Kindle. You can also find my funny short story for knitters, "A Matter of Perspective" at Amazon for Kindle. This is a brief post to share a couple more knitting photos ... it is great to be able to knit more once again.  Little Sweet Pea is being so good about not ripping out my needles any longer.  She actually sat in my lap and watched me work on her little eyelash yarn skirt last night.  I'm going to call this one "Sassafras Tea Skirt", because I intend to have a tea party...

[twitter-follow screen_name='ILiveonaFarm' show_count='yes'] Remember I told you all that my son made a custom Subway Roll Sign style print for me for my birthday back in early August? And, I was going to take a photo of it to share with you all, but I had second thoughts about posting that particular one on the Internet. It has some personally identifying landmarks from my life on it, and I don't feel comfortable broadcasting that out to the universe. Please forgive me, it is not anything personal. However, I did want to share this photo with you of a custom sign...

I was up very late this evening and into the wee hour (1:00 is just one wee hour and I went to bed right after this post which I did at 1:10 a.m. or so, so yes, singular "wee" hour) of the morning. There is a book project I am working on and there was a long, long wait while files uploaded and re-uploaded. While I waited I dreamed I was on a shopping trip in the city on a bus. In my dream I got off at each bus stop and shopped at the store right in front of...

The Advent of Santa: Day Three

The Santa I showed on Day Two of my advent has met with a wee bit of misfortune and is in the shop for repairs.  Meanwhile, the fellow standing in the middle here is his temporary stand-in. For Day Three of The Advent of Santa (which I should have posted yesterday) I offer you Candle Santa.  I bought him at Macy's in Los Angeles about 26 years ago or so. He is a candle, and even has a wick coming out the top of his hat.  Who could ever burn a candle made to look like Santa?  I certainly never...

The Advent of Santa: Day 2

It snowed heavily for much of the day yesterday; after about the first hour or so it started sticking to the ground.  We got several inches of snow, and the dogs had a particularly good time romping in it. In today's Advent of Santa you see a second Santa Claus from my collection.  This one my son bought for me in Colorado when he was about eleven years old.  He was visiting with his father before Christmas, and saw this Santa in a shop window.  I love how whispy and ethereal this particular Santa is, plus he has great sentimental...
