keeping some balance

with all the hulabaloo of getting presents made for my loved ones i am taking time to stimulate my brain; reading holy cow and fairy dust is going to be a good break from knitting. i love knitting but, my arms and wrist are in dire need of rest. i want to make time for some baking as
well! so many fun things to do and i will do it all! almost finished with yet a 3rd curly scarf & a hat. after the holidays i intend on making myself a couple of shrugs & finish my mohair scarf.
it's been quite chilly so my coffee comsumption goes up just to keep warm. happy holidays!

seasons of life

can't believe how quickly this year has gone by. i am also stumped by how fast my life is going by. birthdays have come and gone. one day i found out how vulnerable i really was about my age when i had to choose which age bracket i was in. egads! 45-60 yrs. of age. whew, i am suddenly quite tired; once i could salsa dance all night long. now, you can't even get me out to go dancing. although, i do dance at home i felt cheated; no lights, no heart thumping verberations of house music. so, this is how it feels to be older. somedays i am so light and cheerful i know that it is the inner child i have that holds it all together. i plan on salsa dancing til the day i die ;)

some of my favorite books

so much to knit and seems like not enough time! i love the sensation of knitting. while i lived on maui (2003- 2004) i knitted every chance i could. people ususally looked at me as though i belonged in a looney bin but, hey! what an excellent vice to have. now, everywhere you look trendy knit is in.

christmas in the city of lights

i think that there are a great many romantic places to spend the holidays. i would love to go to europe for christmas especially paris. as it is already called the city of lights the holiday festivities could only enhance the charm & seductive embrace of a city full of such love. one day, i will take my family & friends, rent a little place outside any city and enjoy the rural celebrations. to me, it doesn't
matter if it is spain or japan. the experience of cultural immersion is what i long for. how to better understand myself and my neighbors. my family has always traveled. the times that we settle down, the long periods in between short jaunts to see family friends is needed; mostly, we love to see how others live, love and celebrate life.

keys, locks & other necessities

gold key
You're a little gold key, and you unlock other
people's hearts. Your kindness and willingness
to be there for those you care about lets
people open up to you knowing they will be
accepted. People will rely on you, but be
careful not to give more than you have.

What sort of key are you and what do you unlock?
