Let there be light

It's been a very stressful few weeks here at Casa de Dear. There have been highs and lows (mostly lows), but the fog appears to be lifting at last, or at least it feels like it's going to lift soon. I won't go into details, but suffice it to say that we've all been riding quite the emotional roller coaster, and while we still haven't left the amusement park, I'm hoping we can move ON from the crazy Loop-de-Loop of Mayhem :)

There's been precious little knitting, of course, but that doesn't mean I haven't been thinking about it. I've been fantasizing about entire days spent drinking tea (OK fine, sometimes I substitute with the occasional glass of wine), eating yummy baked goods and knitting scrumptious luxury yarn. Cashmere, alpaca, silk... You name it, I've been daydreaming about it.

While I probably won't be fulfilling that particular dream any time soon, tonight I'm not too far off. I've got a cup of green tea, a (second) slice of homemade apple pie, and a date with The Boy Who Lived and my trusty Cascade 220. Not a bad way to spend an evening, if I say so myself.

Happy Knitting Everyone!

Here's to fog lifting.

This too, shall pass -- thank goodness!

Then you'll be able to return to your regularly scheduled programming. Hope it happens soon for you :)

BTW ... has anyone else mentioned having trouble with your word verification process? The security word shows only a red 'X', but if I ignore it and only put in my username and pswd, it will tell me 'error' and then give me a word on the 2nd try. Your's is the only one I have problems with. Go figure!

Sorry to hear you're going through a tough time. I hope things improve for you soon. I know how all-consuming stress can be, so make sure & mind yourself. A glass of vino & a movie sounds perfect.

Hate to hear you've been having a rough time. I hope it all works out for the best. Fog begone!!!!
