Let's pretend the blog hasn't been lying fallow for over a year and jump right in. The world seems to be full of suck right now on the global level and the local level and I have lots to be thankful for. I haven't had to take three consecutive bereavements leaves because my family is dropping like flies, I don't know anyone who has faked a pregnancy, my mother didn't commit suicide, my home hasn't been ravaged by disasters (natural or man-made), I don't live in a conflict or war zone, I don't got to bed hungry and I'm not homeless or abused. Basically, right now the things that make me sad or frustrated or blue are all things that I have the power to change and for that I am supremely grateful! You may notice that I have added a sidebar on the blog for the charities that I support. I hope you will check them out as they are great organizations. I would love to hear about the charities or organizations that you support.
Now for some lighter fair! Right now I am working on knitting a scarf out of a bulky yarn so it should be a quick knit. I needed something quick to get my knitting mojo back. And yes, it is another scarf. Some people are sock knitters, some are shawl knitter, some are sweater knitters but I think I'm mostly a scarf knitter. Once finished the scarf will probably go in my charity box until the winter rears its ugly head again and then it will be donated.
Enough blogging for tonight. I have to get ready for work and I didn't stretch before blogging so I don't want to overtax myself! Take care internet readers and I hope that your personal corner of the world is suck-free.
