Short Blog Break

I realized yesterday that I have updated my blog only 7 times in the last month, and only twice since the beginning of this month.  There are a lot of things going on in my life right now, and committing to writing a 50,000 word novel (NanNoWriMo) by the end of November has been sort of the last straw.  Rather than feel guilty about it, I won’t be blogging until the first of December, unless I have some sort of Knitting News that just overwhelms me with its importance.

I will definitely be back, and I expect to start blogging around the first weekend in December, so please check in around then.  I know how annoying it can be when you keep checking a blog for days on end and there is just nothing.  Those of you who use Bloglines will automatically get notified when I post again.

Here are a couple of pictures for you in the meantime.  The first is so I don’t get kicked out of the puppy/kitty rings.  Riley the wonder dog and Willie the lunatic cat who thinks he’s a dog clearly love each other.


Here is what it looks like in the Pacific Northwest today:


It’s been a bit gloomy here the last few weeks, so the glorious sunshine today is just a gift.  No offense to those of you who live elsewhere, but this is just  the most lovely place on earth.  I’m sure the place that you live is quite nice, but I just wouldn’t move anywhere else unless somebody held a gun to my head.  Maybe not even then.

See you all in a couple of weeks!

  1. Good luck with your 50,000 words. I’d like to try that sometime. My daughter tried last year, but gave up after two weeks. Persevere! We will all be waiting for you when you return to blogging.

  2. You’ll be missed – please come back! And I couldn’t agree more about the Pacific NW. I’ve been here for 25 years and can’t understand why everyone doesn’t live here – but am glad they don’t! Good luck on your novel.

  3. Wow, what a neat thing- NaNoWriMo…I have to look at that site further. You can do it!
    I’m a totally understanding reader! Is the house next to you for sale?

  4. Have fun with the writing.
    The Pacific Norwest is beautiful. My sister once lived in Tacoma, and I loved visiting here there. I liked driving around and seeing Mt Rainier all over, and my husband loved the feel of the place. We talked about moving there, but we would be too far away from our families.
    I love living in Charleston, South Carolina. It’s a beautiful place in a different way than the Pacific NW. It does gets too hot in the summer, and hurricane season makes me tense, but there is generally good weather, little snow, and nice beaches.
