i forgot about my kids old desktop computer
that's what i'm on now
i took photos today, burned them to a cd on my ailing laptop
for some reason the photo manager is still running,
put the disc in here and hey! i have a post!
saturday i went here with my m.i.l.
and she bought me these lovely paintbrushes
and book from the 1800's
so i painted her a not quite finished
thank you card with sheep
because she told me a sweet story from her childhood
that included them
the rest of the pictures are of the
view out all the open windows
of my house
except the tiny tangerine,
which was sitting there just looking so very cute
here's my news...
i've decided i'd like to teach knitting!
and i've signed up for a class
to become certified
and here is the very exciting part
the three day class is at...
the fashion institute of technology FIT
in New York City
i am not the best knitter
nor do i know every technique
but i think i can help a person with a desire to learn
be a person who can knit (oh i've got so many ideas,
i'm thinking friendly, encouraging, fun! nothing complicated here).
it's something i've thought about
for a long time
and a thing i've heard for years (you should teach)
it's only taking this decision
over the last few days that feels impulsive
maybe it's because
i've only just made up my mind
and i leave for nyc in eight days
that i'm nervous scared excited afraid
but i'm going to try (she keeps telling herself)
more exciting news
involving photography and a new bookclub
but it will have to wait, this computer is almost done too
i think i need to get off now
i have knitting homework, already!
p.s please leave a comment so i can find you, many of my favorites are saved on my other computer!
