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

oof! what a week!
Last night Mom, Dad and I went over and met Molly Elizabeth, Cousin Ranelle's newest addition to the family. She is sooo stickin' cute it should be illegal. I'll try to finangle a picture out of the folks so that everyone can experience the cuteness.
And the realllllly important news is that I have finished the baby blanket. That's right, 4 months of knitting on one project is over! I am going to Jane's (knitting guru) house this evening and she is going to help me sew up the loose ends. Literally. I will then be free to learn how to knit socks, which I have added to my 'Things to Learn Before I Turn 30' list. The others are currently only pie in the sky.... by I have 8 months and counting to get things done. grrr... I am she-woman, hear me roar...
Other than that, I'm still scarf knitting and making everyone's Christmas gift. This year (in case you haven't heard) is going to be a Merry-Homemade-Christmas.
Oh, one more thing.... tomorrow is Hope's 10th Birthday. That is right.... Cousin Jamie's oldest will turn 10. I cannot imagine having a 10-year-old, but since Jamie and I are the same age, it is possible. Oy vey.
