A Dry Spell

Some readers have noted that I'm not posting much. Everything's ok. Actually, everything's pretty good.

I'm back to work now, trying to fit in a few days a week without ditching Mr. Smak too often to deal with the radiation beast on his own. Work is quite busy, our usual summer lull has been overrun by my cut in hours and the departure of a colleague. Home is busy too, we haven't quite caught up from the chaos of the last 6 months. We're getting close, though.

Henry has had a great week. Whatever made him so sick last week is no more, and he spends his days after morning radiation eating nonstop and virtually vibrating he has so much energy. Since we had a negative head CT last week, I can stop dreaming up horrific things every time he stumbles, at least for another few weeks.

My garden is growing, but I'm not spending nearly as much time tending it as usual. And I find that I'm not reading the blogs the way that I used to. It may be because I'm a bit busier, but it's also because I'm a bit obsessed with my new hobby, knitting. You can't knit and blog at the same time.

Tonight as I've gotten caught up on my favorite blogs, it appears that mine is not the only dry spell. No one seems quite as prolific as usual this month. Maybe it's vacations, maybe it's summertime.

Or maybe everyone else started knitting too.

Knitting is a good thing to do while waiting during all Henry's stuff. What are you making?

Ad of course, there is the whole vast world of knitting blogs awaiting you!

Ramona - I've graduated from scarves to hats and sweaters. I'm much better at starting projects than finishing, though...

I've been toying with resurrecting the family tablecloth project, a giant cross-stitching effort that now crosses three generations. For all the reasons you knit.
