Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. ~ Winston Churchill I missed last week's WFH post. Now that life is starting to take a new shape, we're getting busier again. I must admit we like the slower pace of life. I'm…Read more Working from Home: Weeks 16 and 17
Oh, the lovely fickleness of an April day. ~ W. H. Gibson Spring days in April can have all four seasons mixed in or it can rain at the drop of a hat even when there are now clouds in sight. Normally, I like to do a weekly group shot of all the Malabrigo March…Read more The Last Monday in April
Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome. ~ Arthur Ashe Happy Monday! I missed doing a Malabrigo March update last week. To be honest, I really got into my marathon blanket projects and didn't have much to report on the Malabrigo March front. I've been attempting…Read more Malabrigo March Monday
"Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer." The Godfather, Part II. Imagine if aliens could invade without being seen.

Now imagine that aliens…Read more TP-91
By being yourself, you put something wonderful in the world that was not there before. ~ Edwin Elliot It's March 30.

"Elementary, my dear Watson." ~ The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, 1939. The snow has mostly melted. Okay, we actually still have quite a bit left, but the road conditions have cleared up enough to travel into work. Commuting sure does cut down on my knitting and snuggling time. Snow or no snow Friday night typically…Read more Friday Night Heist
When snow falls, nature listens. There is something about snow that quiets the entire world. The morning commute conditions were actually worse than yesterday's. Not surprising since it's about 10 degrees colder than yesterday. Eek, it's cold! Today's view looks pretty similar to yesterday's. Does it look any colder? The view out the front window…Read more Snow Day: The Second
When it snows you have two choices: shovel or make snow angels. It's the first snow day of 2020. It's rare my house has snow in January.
