Snapshots and an Award


It is taking me a bit to return to my stride, since my Western Adventure. Maybe, it is because although my trip was action-packed, I got what a vacation is for, a relaxed daily rhythm. I find it a struggle to resume my usual pace, it seems too frantic, and with all that doing, I feel as though I'm missing so much. I so enjoy doing nothing! And doing non-work (my own work that is) things:
I went to Ducktrap at low tide with my friends, and sloshed around. I went to a funeral and got lost on dirt roads with names like Rabbit Run, with my brothers-in-law and sister-in-law . I saw Blade Runner * on the big screen. I participated in the Stiletto Run, to benefit New Hope for Women, and then just hung out in town with my friend and her kids, where we went to friend Phil's Restaurant, Boyton McKay, for brunch, and read the New York Times. I knit, just to please myself. I didn't take any pictures of it. I neglected this blog.

I offer some last shots of Idaho, and I'm pleased to accept an award bestowed upon me by a blogger much more worthy of the honor than me, the eloquent Jackie, of
nearby the sea

2. Each of the blogs must have a purpose

Lisa of Jungle Dream Pagoda, mistress of the stage and screen, frequent flights of fancy, Doppelganger Barbie Slumber Parties, and a wardrobe you won't believe!

Fellow knitting sister, Kat Coyle at Coiled. An amazing painter as well as designer of some of my favorite knitted things. When I was the stylist for Interweave Knits I couldn't wait to see what Kat would send in, always brilliant!
