a musical interlude

it's log, it's log!
it's big!
it's heavy!
it's wood!
it's log, it's log!
it's better than bad, it's GOOD!

Thank you Ren and Stimpy.

And thank you to my aunt who wrote to me on day and told be that on an official date she picked out, thus blog became a log.

What can i say? I have been busy.

There is work. There is holiday knitting (29 gifts done, 1 to go). There is charity crafting. (21 preemie hats--go me!) rW and I hosted his mother for Thanksgiving, and hat was also a lot of work.

Since I last wrote I have also designed two shows, visited Ohio, made applesauce and canned it, made tomato sauce and canned it (with the help of rW!), put up a Christmas tree, and blessedly reconnected with my friend penguingirl.

I also made this, which was a lot of fun-but-time-consuming work.

This is the best thing ever...

"oooohhhhh no! i have a pumpkin head! Dad, why are you laughing!?"

the funny thing is that the picture seems to show him doing his best to keep the hat on his head, when in all actuality, nothing could be further than the truth.

I'm saying this is photoshopped.

I'm sorry to be posting this here, but I can't find an email anywhere.

Dear Kittything,

I am helping my my friend and commercial neighbor Dahlia Brown identify operators of small yarn/fiber art shops who might be interested in making a move to our wonderful little corner of the world. Lake Anne Plaza in Reston is the original village center of Reston. It is a mixed use space commercial and residential. We have several restaurants a great used bookstore, an art gallery, community center, hair salon, etc...it is a beautiful little community.

I am a residential real estate agent and have a small store front office on the Plaza, I am also the head of the Lake Anne Merchants Committee, a group of owners and operators that work to promote our businesses and the Plaza. I want to encourage you to consider a move to Lake Anne, yours is the perfect destination type of business that will thrive on Lake Anne. We have an active marketing program that is provided to you at no additional cost. Everyone who has heard Dahlia's idea for a yarn shop on the Plaza loves it, several of us have been actively seeking to identify someone who is in a position to make a move or even to open a new shop. Dahlia feels so strongly about this venture that she will be reducing the rent by 50% for the first year or so to assist in getting the business up and running. If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to call me; I'm happy to do whatever I can to support this effort.
