Happy 40th, Amy!


My friend, co-worker and pastor moved back home yesterday. The church let her go and she decided to take the opportunity to go back to school and get her M Div. But before she packed up and left, we had to celebrate her 40th birthday. (If you've been reading my blog for awhile, she's the one who had a pirate party last year.)

I made her a bundt (boont) cake with a flower in it. With a nod toward My Big Fat Greek Wedding. A lot of people turned out to tell her that she was old.


We went to her favorite restaurant, El Molcajete. Great food, yummy cake and a wonderful celebration of her life mixed in with a little bittersweet good-bye.


Happy Birthday, Amy! I wish you a beautiful journey of transition; a banner year of walking closer with God and most of all - true joy.

Not much going on

I haven't had a lot of time to devote to knitting with taking care of hubby and trying out new BP meds for myself. Energy level fluctuates and sometimes, I just don't feel like knitting. Which is a sign that I'm seriously wiped a lot lately.

Here's a few things that I've managed to do.

1. Gather & pet my sock yarns (prep for a future project)


2. Started a scrap sock.

3. Got warped

Pirate Bag!



Made for me by a fellow raveler. Now I can go pirating in style!
