I Know I Should Be Blogging

Instead I am knitting and watching movies on the computer.

I’m getting close on this cardigan.

After Glow??

Maybe, maybe not. But the wedding is behind us and I am recovering from the festivities. One month married and I am still surviving! Wedding recap and other marriage related stuff to come. I’m hoping to finish this out before the end of the year. It was such a great day and such a great party, but it is definitely time to move on from wedding planning and wedding talk in general.
Not to mention, I am ready to get back to my hobbies. I am living in a much colder climate now and I don’t have nearly enough knitted accessories.
Happy Holidays, my friends. May God bless your Christmas!

There are Butterflies In My Sky

I wrote this post some time ago and lost track of it in my blogging software. But I ran across it in my end of year digital clean-out effort. There are a lot of iPods, iPads and iPhones that will be unwrapped in a couple of days. If there are children in viewing area of these devices in your life, please consider this app recommendation.

People always ask me about my reading and wonder how I came to love reading so much. All I can say is that I owe so much of who I am culturally to Reading Rainbow and The Catherine T. and McArthur D. Foundation that sponsored so much of the public television programming that I grew up watching.
LeVar Burton has revamped Reading Rainbow for the technology that has invaded our lives. This experience is optimized at the moment for IOS and the iPad so I won’t get to try it out, but I am excited about it none the less.

If you have children in your life, please introduce them to this little bit of our past recreated. In this crazy world we live in, they need a few butterflies in their sky.
