Wednesday's Musings


Good morning! Thank you all for the lovely comments on my post yesterday :)  I appreciate all of you who take the time to visit this blog.  I am humbled by your loyal reading and commenting.  And yes, even those of you who are silent readers.  I used to be a silent reader for years.

Did you know that I was the kid who never stopped talking? The sisters at my Catholic school used to be frustrated with me.  If only they would stop seating me alphabetically (W - last row last seat).  Everyone knows you put the talkers front and center in a classroom.  Make them work for that gabbing, jeez!

Because of my love for talking to just about anyone who will listen, this blog space has been a creative outlet for me to express myself.  The best part is I don't have to leave the house :)


Ginny wrote a beautiful post last night on new beginnings and life changing.  We all face changes don't we?  Sometimes we seek it and sometimes it seeks us.  The challenge is being open minded and accepting.  I'm not sure I do any accepting with grace, I'd like to believe that I do.

I've been focusing on two projects this week.  My sweater which is at the body shaping phase.  This project is my go to tv knitting.  Also I've been knitting my husband's cowl (another great tv knitting project).



Thank you also for noticing the blog changes.  All free and courtesy of new blogger themes.  I changed the photos and some minor colors styles.

  1. If there are new blogger styles, I should go look! I just finished C's sweater so now I need easy TV knitting as well!

  2. I love your thoughts on how being the gabby kid in class has translated so well into your blog. I so enjoy your creative combination of words, knitting and photos!

  3. That's good you have your blog to chat on now. I agree it is nice to be chatty on blogs, we don't even have to leave the house! I love how your sweater and cowl are coming along. Have a good day!

  5. This Blogger theme is very different. More free and flowy? I like this soothing color. Hooray on project progress and being able to multitask.

  6. It is fun to do a little "remodeling" on the blog! The kitchen window photo is lovely! Such a lovely cheerful glow from the sun! A welcome treat with all that snow!

  7. I saw the new styles, and will check them out in more detail this weekend.

    I had to laugh at your description of being a talker in school. When I was in the fourth grade, Sister Whoever It Was Then moved my seat next to Cindy Myles, who was the quietest girl in the class, so I would learn to be quiet. Next grading term, my conduct grade was the same, but Cindy's had gone down ... :-)

  9. Your new blog-look is very spiffy. Life does change it is the accepting with grace part that is sometimes challenging for me.

  10. We blog for much the same reason. It is a creative outlet for me. I'm home a lot so this way I can talk and kind people who leave comments become people whom I look forward to "visiting" with on a regular basis.

    Acceptance is definitely a key when it comes to change. I'd like to think that I handle change with grace, but I know it isn't always true.

    Have a wonderful remainder to your week, Karen.

    TV knitting is bread of life. I'm going to have to go check back to see what all I've missed in the last week (spring break... the boys were here)! blessings ~ tanna

  13. I love your new blog, I used to indeed be a silent reader for the longest time but am trying to go about commenting much more frequently now. I agree with you, blogs are such splendid places to ramble on about everything. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed week!

  14. I change up my blog header and colors every quarter... I think my mom is the only one who ever notices, but it makes me happy! Isn't it great to have a place to talk without getting into (too much ;-) trouble!!
