Because I needed another blog to neglect...

I've started a gratitude blog here.

It's just for lists of things I am grateful for. I know I've neglected this blog. I'll try to get here more often.

Current projects:

Knitting for the holidays
Finding support locally for some educational stuff.

oh, and a little one,

Figuring out what we as a family want for our future and helping that future come to pass.

How it is going (the 101 things)

Well, I failed my third attempt at the UK driving liscense and to save my sanity I have given up on that list item. I haven't decided for sure what to replace it with yet. I'll let you know when I do.

But, I am working on numerous list items. In no particular order they are:

learning to crochet
learning to spin wool (with a drop spindle) I have the basic idea, I just need a spindle and some
roving so I can get the technique down.
recording an album of ballads
learning Alice's Restaurant (I don't know if I will ever get this perfect, but I will at least get it
enough to play it)
learning to speak a foriegn language (Spanish)
knitting sweaters for everyone in my immediate family (working on sweater number one)
Reading Jane Austen (halfway through Emma)
Participating in NaNoWriMo

And already I have done a few items to completion. I have my etsy shop up (though I haven't sold anything yet) and I am now a sock knitter. Miss Mousie is very pleased with her socks. She keeps looking down at her feet but falls over because of her Dunlap's Disease (her belly dun lapped over her belt).
