Read my blog on Kindle. You can also find my funny short story for knitters, "A Matter of Perspective" at Amazon for Kindle. I have another "As seen in..." to report, dear readers. Interweave Knit's Holiday Gifts, 2011 issue will hit newsstands on Tuesday, September 6, 2011 and our Knitter's Eye Charts are featured in the issue in the Gifts for Knitter's section. They wrote to me earlier in the summer, and of course I was very excited to learn they wanted to feature our Eye Chart in the issue. Both Interweave and Vogue (Vogue Knitting Fall 2011) had me...

Recipe: Deconstructed Eggplant Parmesan

New! Get my blog on Kindle. And, too good not to mention ... Flying Junction is having a Buy Two, Get One Free sale on all paper prints in his online store.  Plus, free shipping.  Gotta love that! This is my Deconstructed Eggplant Parmesan recipe ... shared with love.  I hope you give it a try.  It is especially good if you can get your hands on eggplant from a local farm market rather than at the grocery store.  I have noticed the eggplants we buy at the farm stand are more tender and have less seeds than those I...

I'm off caffeine. I'll just let that sink in for a minute ... I love coffee. I love English Breakfast, Earl Grey, and green teas. Along with loving the beverages, I love the fact and the act of having a cup of coffee with someone I love or with a good friend. Saturday and Sunday mornings, sipping coffee while chatting with my husband ... sweet. Late weekday mornings sipping coffee or tea with the readers of my blog ... very nice. However, for health and energy reasons I am off caffeine. The truth of the matter is, I feel much...

[Good News! The photos that have been missing from my earlier blog posts are now back. So sorry for the delay.] Please say hello to my new teddy bears ... they arrived on Christmas morning. Thank you Mom and Dad, and Carol. These are two-too sweet. Another thank you to Dale ... the cypress ball ornament was a dear surprise in the Gracious Parcels box you sent. Viewpoint is an interesting thing. So often what you experience and feel and see around you is a matter of your own perspective and attitude. Today it is just over 50 degrees, rainy...
