Good morning/afternoon/evening/tomorrow. I really am going to write more this spring. My brain is finally cooperating and not being an asshole to me, which helps. I am done mourning a certain knitting site, which is not the only playground in town, didn’t always exist, and I don’t miss that much. So… happy Spring!
We’ve had our Easter Snow, and it’s a beautiful sunny day here in the foothills. BabyGoth is home for the weekend. DadGoth and I maybe getting a vaccine this week (I have an appointment, and we’re working on his). It’s a good weekend.
I am also getting within the end of the Boreas Cardi project. Yes, I am really not enjoying sewing the seams. No, I am still stubborn enough that this will not stop me. And I’m still determined to finish up the Ball of Roving. Plus there are a bunch of other spinning projects I intend to work on this spring/summer.
Here’s some evidence of Spring at last.
And here’s a picture of BabyGoth’s Easter candy, from http://Lagustasluscious.com, placed in and around one of my already completed projects. They are a woman-owned company, they make vegan chocolate, and I love both their chocolates and their political stands they take.
The nest was made back when BabyGoth was a actual child. I’ve made a bunch of things holiday-related for her. There have also been tiny bunnies and chicks, crocheted and knitted. I’ll post pictures as I find them lying around the house.
Today’s also the 8th day of Passover, which ends at sunset today. We never really celebrated Pesach while I was growing up, but my Dad still kept up his childhood habits: making matzoh PBJs, matzoh brie on the weekends, matzoh ball soup. Those became at least my habits, even though we never had a lot of contact with his family while I was growing up.
I’ve gotten out of the habit of regular writing. Mostly that means I still have a hell of a time figuring out how to end things. It’ll get better if you hang in there with me, I promise. May you have a beautiful Spring. People may not be able to gather the way we used to, but try to enjoy being outside and enjoy what you can of the world. See you later.
