a must read!

Pearls Before Breakfast

Renowned violin virtuoso Joshua Bell does a social study in a metro DC train station, dressing as a street performer. Click on the link above to discover what happened.

"The violin is an instrument that is said to be much like the human voice, and in this musician's masterly hands, it sobbed and laughed and sang -- ecstatic, sorrowful, importuning, adoring, flirtatious, castigating, playful, romancing, merry, triumphal, sumptuous."
- Gene Weingarten

Don't miss this one.
Thanks Ali!


here it sits, waiting for me to click my sticks around it, longing to become something fabulous!

having trouble with my latest knit project. details to come, i'm sure. maybe it's just me. maybe it's my mom saying perhaps i picked too challenging of a project. maybe it's my husband scolding me for sitting on my ass knitting all day, which all of us knitters know is impossible *g*.

i'm going to try again tonight. last night i couldn't even make a k1, p1 rib look good.

funny how knitting teaches all sorts of lessons that have nothing to do with the yarn.

crafting is on hold

we're still trying to get settled in the new house.
i can't believe how long it's taken.
the house is pretty much a box-free zone thank gawd! but the office is filled with cardboard.
i can't believe how out of sorts i feel without the familiar around me. it was time to sit and pay monthly bills. i was lost without the calculator on my computer! i'm hoping there is no major error in my bill paying as i'm digging through boxes trying to find payment books and registers.

i think i have it under control but all this has been such a reminder of how organization is GOOD. it makes life so much easier.

since i'm not currently crafting i wanted to share a picture.inspired by 3191 (and reminded by Cathy z) i wanted to share a shot from my everyday world.

welcome to mundania.
