Life is Good


Ever do slowly does this blanket grow.  One day I shall be finished with it.  When I started this blanket, first my son claimed ownership, then my daughter and my husband.  I declared "it's mine!" but really let's be honest, the blanket belongs to Frodo.  He sees me working on it and jumps up and sits beside me on the sofa.


He gives me upside down spiderman glares (reference to the first spiderman movie where there is an upside down kiss) until I place the blanket on him.  If Frodo could speak he woulds say "ahh, finally she understood me".  He sleeps in his woolen cocoon until I leave the sofa.

The vet called and Frodo does not have Lyme disease, phew.  He is just taking his time getting over his teeth cleaning.  Maybe he was a little disgruntled about the whole process.  I also think he is  tired of winter.  Whatever his reason, he has perked up and it will be quite a while before he needs to have his teeth cleaned again.


We celebrated my husband's birthday this week.  There was cake and there was german chocolate brownies.  Sugar in massive amounts just doesn't agree with me any more.  Gone are the days of eating a piece of cake and not feeling the effects.  Sometimes getting older isn't much fun.  However, I celebrate that I can walk just about anywhere (weather permitting) and can do my yoga and have good health overall.  I intend to be fit and healthy to the best of my abilities.

Truly life is good.

Have a good restful weekend!

  1. Yes life is good!!!
    Frodo's blanket is coming along so nicely, I do love all the happy colors. I'm glad he doesn't have any bug bites and hopeful soon he can be running around outside protecting the yard from bunnies.
    Happy birthday to your husband. I hear you about sugar and just 'junk' in general, it makes me feel lousy. Hooray for yoga, I've practiced two weeks straight!
    Enjoy a great weekend.

  8. I am so impressed by your blanket progress and am so glad your Frodo was not diagnosed with Lymes. Is that a dogwood blossoming? It's supposed to be almost 70 here this weekend! :)

  15. Frodo is getting an amazing blanket! I'm so glad he is feeling better. I used to get Magnificat monthly back when I was able to go to daily Mass. I miss it! And it is true Karen - as long as we have our health we are truly blessed.

  16. IF we can get past this day when we say goodbye to our oldest dearest cat, then I can rest. She deserves to be in peace. how is the rosary book going?

  17. I love this blanket and am not surprised that Frodo covets it, he has excellent taste! Popeye has been acting oddly as well and like you I can't help but wonder if it is cabin fever. He is so used to nice long walks and this winter they have been far and few between! Have a lovely weekend, Karen!

  18. I think it's great the blanket has taken on it's own story and Frodo has taken it on for himself! The last picture full of happy things makes me, well ... happy!

    You have to have cake now and then. It's required!

  21. Your blanket is so pretty. I love the story that comes with the knitting. Sugar is a culprit. I am with you. A little is a treat but too much and I don't feel good. Yoga and walking make me feel better though. Have a good weekend.

  33. Life is wonderful from where I'm sitting... With you on the sugar thing : We are even in a process of reducing dairy, gluten... Every time we take something out of our diet, we think ourselves ridiculous because we don't feel THAT bad, but then we feel better... How much "better" can one person feel? It's got us curious! :-) So happy Frodo is happy and healthy and I cannot WAIT to see your blanket finished.
