Greetings Friends!

Here I am! It’s so easy to go from one site to another on the Internet and not even remember where you started. That’s how I am, anyway. So, however you found me, I am glad you’re here! I often I have difficulty remaining focused so please don’t expect each post to relate to the one before. I have too many interests and too little time so……


If you are a knitter, you might want to stick around and see some of the crazy mistakes I make (and fix) and we can console each other. I am currently working on a cardigan that has been quite a challenge. You’ll see it soon. I love the yarn…it is a tape yarn from Lang called Sol Degrade. It’s a summer-weight yarn so I’m sure I’ll finish it by November.

If you love dogs, you will definitely see and hear about mine. In fact, you might get more that you bargained for, as some of my friends believe I was a dog in a previous life. Caring for my four dogs (all rescues) and spending some time with our dachshund rescue makes my heart sing. My fur family includes:



  • Brittany mix named Allie and she is 11 years old.
  • Toy poodle named Sophie and she is 15+ years old.
  • Dachshund named Charlie and he is 7 years old.
  • Dachshund named Jack and he is 11+ years old. He is technically my foster dog, but at his age, I’m pretty sure he’ll stay with me. And that is great!

I’ll let you know about books or magazines I’ve read and food that is yummy and probably is not on any “healthy eating” list. Sometimes I try to eat only food that is good for my body and then other times I say #&^% it, I’m going to enjoy it while I can.

And I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I don’t like to talk about it much and I rarely tell anyone how I really feel physically because I don’t want the leave_me_alone__i_wanna_sleep_by_marissavoopity looks and, honestly, I don’t like to think about it myself. But, I do want you to know my reality so maybe if I write about it here it will help us both. I’ve made a lot of changes in my life to help me live with this chronic disease and that’s really what it’s all about, right? Living! I am reclaiming my life!

Oh look! There goes a squirrel!
