So what else am I thankful for?? My ipod is my best friend while the boys are at school. I have discovered many podcasts that I enjoy listening too. If I ever get my rear in gear, I will link them in the sidebar. I do have music on my ipod, but rarely listen to it during the day. I think it's the sound of talking that keeps me company while knitting, sewing or keeping house.

I've started my Christmas knitting so pictures of my finished projects won't be seen until after the holiday. I've decided that my little sister will not be getting the cashmere cabled hat because she made fun of MY Christmas wishlist ( maybe I will feel differently about this tomorrow). Seeing that she lives in NYC I requested ANYTHING from Purl. "oh, Jane" I heard from the other end of the phone. I could picture her rolling her eyes and trying to plan when she could go so no one would see her entering a yarn store...So uncool in her eyes! Little does she know how cool it is...but I won't tell her. So she told me to send a few ideas along so she would know what to ask for and ultimately cut down on the time she is in said yarn shop. I have a few ideas...but my number one idea is some Koigu. It's not sold around here and the colors are luscious. Maybe some Habu...oh, the choices are endless. I'm curious, what would you wish for!

Oh, how I LOVE this sweater! It was quick and easy to knit. I would highly recommend it for a beginner knitter. I enjoyed knitting with the Cascade Eco-wool. (Plus it's pretty inexpensive!) My only worry is that the sweater will pill quickly.

I guess we need to work on the spelling .
It's been long and emotional. I've said some things that I never thought would be uttered across my lips. I disengaged from the facts and became disgusted by the hatred for supporting another candidate. I became cynical about everything.
I'm searching for the idealist that I once was in my twenties. I'm not sure where she has gone. She was there, as she traveled through nasty, nasty streets to help educate the poor. A young woman out to save the world and change young lives. A young woman that has so many stories of children, in our own country, that need desperate help. I need to find her again and help her to raise her own young sons to know how important it is to help others. To let them know that no matter how beaten down and useless that it may seem at times, that somewhere they will touch the life of at least one person and for that, our world will be a better place.
