On Saturdays, I love to walk around Green Lake. When I’m running that usually involves running rather than a walk but that’s beside the point. There is a little shop near the end of my wok called cake movie. After my walk and or run, I usually stop there for coffee and a cupcake.
Now that my cooking project is basically under control and I can get back to my regular routine. I am back to my Saturday cupcakes.
Maybe yesterday I got a little bit too carried away with the cupcake. Because I forgot to blog it.
Dues ish Green Belt. West Seattle.
I can jury rig with the best of them. No flat screwdriver? Hand me that knife over there will you and I’ll be good to go. On the other hand ~
Apparently I have paint issues. Husbeast didn’t tell me he had loosened the lid.
Madrona Fiber Art’s Retreat is over for another year. I almost didn’t go this year and at the last moment I had a change of heart and went for the day on Saturday. Then I had the opportunity to spend the night, so I had a bit more time than I thought I would have had!
Here are my favourite moments from the weekend:
I have no words. Which isn’t precisely true, given that words are being typed across the page and appear before me. I can not begin to describe the shock and horror that is flooding me right now as news broke about the shooting at a Connecticut elementary school. As a parent, one of my deepest fears is losing a child. I am acutely aware of the frailty of life and that our time here on earth is so fleeting in the grand scheme of things.
I began writing this post way back in December, but decided at that time that I couldn’t finish writing it. Then came the holidays and after that the non stop challenges of juggling work and life. It never seems to ease up. Then came news that a dear friend of mine from forever had lost her Ben, her son, to that dark place of depression. And again I have no words, for I know that dark place of my own, struggle with it and fight against it. Of this too, I am acutely aware of the steep and slippery slope of that journey.
So the last couple months have been about the lack of words. I still find my vocabulary wanting.
Anybody out there? I’m still here, I am just been really busy with work. No promises, but I am going to try and make a better effort to blog more often.
So much for consistency. Life is fluid and that includes titles for blogging. That is my story and I am sticking to it. Today I walked down to join some knitting peeps at for a bit of the day. I didn’t take any classes, but perused the vendor market for a while. Went to lunch and started on a cowl for my Godmother’s Christmas present. All in all a busy day.
