Okay, let’s face it, there has been enough bad and ugly in my life the last week or so. This post is all about Good Things. Good: As you may recall, before I had that Life Changing Thing happen, I finished the Adamas Shawl. I blocked it one day last week (it’s sort of a…
I’ve been postponing a Good, Bad & Ugly post for about a week because I don’t really have enough bads and uglies to even things out. So, this time, it’s almost all good. And that’s not bad or ugly, is it?
Good: My nephew Steve earned the rank of Eagle Scout on Sunday. Dale, who has been both Assistant Scoutmaster and Scoutmaster of Steve’s troop was so proud. The whole family was in attendance for the ceremony and reception and it was wonderful.
Steve, Lisa (Steve’s mom and Dale’s sister) and Dale. Too bad there’s no family resemblance, eh?
Good: I know I said it was great to see the whole family at Steve’s party. But can you guess who I was most excited to see?
My adorable granddaughter!
She just gets cuter all the time. And I managed to get her measurements so I can knit her some stuff. Yay!
Good: Since joining the Y I’ve lost 5 pounds. I’ve also lost 5 inches from various parts of my body.
Bad: You all can guess where I’ve lost the most inches, right? The only place I actually don’t mind keeping inches.
Good: A rainbow in my backyard Sunday night. It was a lot more vibrant before I took this photo. So bright that I gasped when I saw it.
Good: I hosted another spinning night at the library. Five people came, including Martha, Maggie and Blogless Sharon. Also in attendance was a woman who is a member of the Harlow House Heritage Crafters. She owns an original Canadian Production wheel. It’s actually the one that David Paul used as his prototype for his reproduction wheels. It’s gorgeous and I was very excited to meet this particular wheel. And, I learned to Navajo Ply! And, Maggie brought me some of her soap! I’m loving this group, I’ll tell ya.
Good: Speaking of Blogless Sharon, her daughter Heather has started a blog. Go on over and say hello, wouldya?
Good: I’ve finally met Melanie and her twins. The babies are adorable and Melanie is a sweetheart. I’ve been able to visit twice and can’t wait to go again.
Good: Prizes and Prezzies. In the past couple of weeks I’ve received a Martha’s Vineyard postcard from Deb and official Maryland Sheep & Wool notecards from Norma. Clearly, I’m not on the shit list if I’m getting gifted, right, Vicki? I also won a custom made bag from Julie as a prize for donating to her Relay for Life fundraiser. You can still donate. Maybe you’ll win a prize, too. Speaking of donating and prizes, don’t forget to pledge to Claudia’s MS Bike Ride. You could win some great prizes there, too.
Good: Massachusetts Sheep & Wool is this weekend. And now that I know how to Navajo Ply, I can gleefully purchase all those lovely multicolored rovings. Yippee!
