Bouncy Bow Pink Bow Purple Bow BLANKET Mousey Mushroom Ears

First, again I apologize for getting off the rails and subtweeting yesterday. Most of my life is good. There’s this one corner where things are kind of off the rails and I don’t know how they got that way or how to fix it. I have tried (and tried and tried and tried (and tried…)) to communicate but there is just no reasoning with some people… … … (Thanks to one of my blahggy buddies for support. You know who you are.)

Today started out with gorgeous sunshine albeit frigid temps. It was a kind of a slodgy day for me. I was looking forward to a Moom Alone weekend to get things done. I didn’t really rise to that occasion. I did do a lot of reading. I don’t really think that’s a bad thing, do you? Today I finished “To the Bright Edge of the World”, a recommendation from my Alaskan daughter. Actually she is my Detroit daughter but she has been to Alaska and loves it there. I hope I don’t lose her to Alaska someday but you never know (and, ugh, planes fly there nowadays). The book? Book hangover? I cried when Tillman died. That is all I can say.

I was cold this morning, sitting on the green couch watching all the dogs go by. I grabbed the blanket in the photoooo. It is a blanket that Mouse has given me for xmas two times. The first time was a long time ago and it wasn’t quiiiiiite finished. This year I received it again, finished! I’m not sure exactly when she began the blanket but it may have been when she was still working at the yarn store. A lot of stuff has happened since then, like college and study abroad and jobs (me and Mouse) and I had kinda forgotten about the blanket. I used it today to keep warm in my seat by the front window.

I am glad that this unfinished prodject was finally finished (because it is beautiful and it kept me warm today!) but not every prodject has to be finished. I have a few UFPs hanging around and I know the guilt involved in starting a prodject and not getting around to finishing it. So, if I had never received this blanket in a finished format, it would be okay. But I did and I love you so much, my beautiful talented Mouse.

    I fell in love with AK when I was there too, but would NEVER want to live there. The winters, OMG! If it was me who helped, I don’t feel like I did. Some issues we just have to let go of. Can’t fix crazy. xoxo

    I like Alaska very much and also like winter but am unlikely to move there. However that was a great book. Two book hangovers in a month!

    I cried when Dumbledore died. I was sitting on the beach reading it of course, because the books always came out the first week of July which prepped excellent beach reading opportunities!
