Until I can find a way around this insult, I won be posting wordless Wednesday…

Toddling off with my knitting and a good book.


Artist is Dennis Cox
And the meme is at Dreamstime.com
This is what I feel like. 
I'm not as broad, either in body or probably in mind.


See you all on Monday for Music

Off the net for awhile…..

 I am so disgusted and sickened by what “they who should know better than to do” are doing.  

My country, also (for one) should know better.  They are a bunch of pussyfoots and assassins.  

I have to remember the important things like: "Memento Mori".

This is the sky on the day of the first-year memorial for our daughter who passed away eight years ago. this year.  

She asked me to ignore politics.. that it was a tug of war..  She asked me, as a dying wish.. her words, to knit short fingered gloves (ones like I'd made for her) for the patients at her clinic.  

It's time I got back to my knitting and just ignore politics... because even war is political, when you think about it.  It's a big game of, "Let's you and him fight".

Three on a Thursday:

 1. Being sleep deprived and trying to catch up by taking naps is sort of a gray haze lifestyle.  I'm beginning to see that there is no other way to get through life at this point.  And I'm watching the Pacific, especially the North Pacific.  All that ice being gone is going to make for very interesting things across the volcanic islands and the Pacific Rim countries.  

2. One of our daughters came for a visit.  I love it when they do that.  I'm smiling from ear to ear.

3. I'm hittin' ma' knittn'.  My DD wants to knit a scarf for when it's cold again.. no time soon... And it's time that some new short fingered gloves were on the the needles.  

Enjoy your weekend.  I'm going to go watch "Cold Comfort Farm". Such a sweet and silly movie.

Three on Thursday:

1.  I'm very tired.  I think it has an emotional component to it.  I've stopped reading about the two wars.  I am so pissed off at our government's support for maniacs and the face saving in Washington.  Look, we get it.  We are in bed with a handful of sickening devils while trying to look innocent of anything they may be doing.  

2. I need to go to Ireland or Scotland to visit my relatives there.  You know.... a change of Scenery.  Maybe I'll stop in at Buckingham Palace and visit the rels...jk

3. I'm slowly making headway through the tons of saved materials for projects to make everything under the sun.  Strawberry Moon Studios needs to divest.  

That's about it for this last week of May.  Ta ta..  

Here is a treat for having read this far.  Be sure to take as many as you want.  I feel cookies help all of us through some of these modern day cases of Angst and folderol.

Three on Thursday…

I'd like to send up a BIG Thank you all for reading here.  Blogging helps keep me going- and out of trouble, mostly - in Instagram and other social media.  

This blog, knitting, and reading like a maniac have helped me to keep my sanity in the face of a world that is about to erupt into World War Three.  

1. I've been thinking a lot about how lies become the truth, if told often enough over time.  Countries do this all the time to avoid having to face the consequences of their "creative narrative" for their origin, and to support their subsequent actions to maintain the myths.  They are still lying.  

So many people believe these weavers of a certain "origin story" that they can get away with murder down future decades and even centuries.  They forget that there is a God who hears all and knows everything done, much of it IN his name.  

2.  Here is something completely different.  A photograph of the surf along the Pacific coast which was made by a family member.  I find it comforting and healing for my soul.  The Eternal Ocean.... 

Coast of California - Monterey Bay

3. I'm struggling with my knitting ..  Actually I haven't knit for nearly a year now.  I'm hoping to change that by starting another project soon.  It will be a pair of Short Fingered Gloves for the chemo-therapy patients in Santa Cruz.  I really have to settle down and do something that will help me feel better.

Navy Diver Drowns & Meets his Soul Family (Near-Death Experience)

In researching many events that have to do with  what has come to be called a "near death experience" I feel that it can't be ignored as some sort of Hysteria anymore.  It's being recounted by far too many people.

I'm now pretty certain that the "Universe" is trying to tell us something....  

In fact, I'm completely convinced of it.

Music Monday: ๐ŸŽถ introducing the Oud.



This instrument is pronounced “Ood”. I have a quite a few tracks of different performers, and have seen some of a woman who plays an upside Spanish guitar in this style.  She’s wonderful but I can no longer find her tapes.  DM me please if you have info on her.  Use the word “OUD” in the heading, please?  ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Three on Thursday:

1. I am so DOWN.  ๐Ÿ˜•

I have self diagnosed and decided that it's the fault of  724 news and horrors show I've been watching in which a country which shall not be named turns into it's own worst enemy.  

So, I'm now staring out my Sanatorium Sanctuary windows with a half-arsed grin on my face, willing the birds of my neighborhood to come eat the seeds, all the while trying to not eat ALL the chocolate in my house!

Ohhhh!  Are those Chocolate Chip?

2.  There is a ZERO chance that I can personally do a single thing to stop the insane Genocide in Palestine from being perpetrated by..... *They Who Should Most Definitely Know Better* than to Do THIS terrible thing to anyone else!  

What the Fracks the MATTER with them??  

3.  Do you all want kittens and puppies?  So do I!  I want a cute little kitten or a puppy to hug and play squeaky toys with.....

My best little knitting buddy

Twin Puppies!
