Some censuring Readers will scornfully say, why hath this Lady writ her own life? Since none cares to know whose daughter she was or whose wife she is, or how she was bred, or what fortunes she had, or how she lived, or what humor or disposition she was of? I answer that is true, that 'tis to no purpose to the Readers, but it is to the Authoress, because I write it for my own sake, not theirs. ~Margaret Cavendish in 1655

i'm a nerd and here is an example why

I have finished the baby blanket, after 4 months of knitting! I also now have the pictorial proof of said accomplishment. I know that it doesn't look like a typical baby blanket, but Cousin Nichole is a typical mom.

I think that the blanky will be big enough for 4 kids, but it will enough for him to grow into. And warm for winter! Good grief! I was sweating by the end everytime I knitted on it.

Friend Alison came up for a visit and we had a good time. We went over to Kenton and met up with the folks and went to a movie and Chinese buffet in Bellefontaine. The Holiday with Kate Blanchett and Camran Diaz was a fun chick flick. Other than that, we hung out and we didn't quite make it to the Regal Beagle. That will have to wait for another day.

The holidays are upon us and I am almost done with Christmas purchases.... just one or two more things. I promise.

Check out Princess Megan's blog about fruitcakes (no, not the ones you married/dating). As for more comments about married/dating, read Crazy Aunt Purl's blog and maybe you too can put forth your own dating horror story. I did date a married man for 1/2 of a date, until he told me he was married, but that she was in Canada and all he wanted was 'friends'. I asked to see a picture and he whipped it out with no hesitation. I don't believe that I left so quickly in my life and I can't remember any more if I saw him afterwards. I told Friend Laura about it(she had encouraged the date) and we were both outraged and I believe relieved (better to find the cretin out before the second date). I think that I left the country the following Feb. But that is another story for another time.

Laura, I can crochet, but not knit. Maybe we should bring suppplies to the next family gathering and teach each other.
