Weekending: My Little Valentine
Faked out

Ten on Tuesday: What's up?

Ten on Tuesday:  10 Things I'm Looking Forward To Right Now

1. The Madison Knitters' Guild Knit InI'm going with my friend Ann and we're making a weekend of it, leaving early Friday morning, even, so we can make stops along the way. It's been a few years since I've gone to the Knit In, and I'm truly looking forward to it!

2. Annie Modesitt's Mad About Plaid class on Saturday morning (hopefully, she's feeling better by then!).

3. The Beer and Fiber Pairing on Sunday afternoon. There's a Wine and Yarn Tasting, too. Ann is doing both on Saturday!

4. I've been to the Madison area many times but have rarely eaten at a restaurant, so I'm excited about checking out the food scene! Red Sushi, Umami Ramen & Dumpling Bar, Graze, and The Coopers Tavern have all been mentioned, as well as Grampa's Pizzeria.

Let's see, what else?

5. The Oscars on Sunday night. Unable to take part in the Best Picture Festival this year, I've only seen a few nominated movies. That's better than last year, though, as I'd seen none and was grateful for the BP Fest.

6. Daylight Savings Time begins at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 8th! We are currently gaining daylight at the rate of approx. 3 minutes per day and that just increases everyday from now until the Summer Solstice. Yay!

7. My 10-year Quit-iversary on March 18th!

8. My 11-year Blog-iversary on March 20th, which is better known to most as the First Day of Spring!!

9. Dyeing some yarn. It's been a while, and there are a couple of projects waiting... with any luck, that will happen later today or tomorrow.

10. NO PLANS! It's all good -- Mexico, my grandson, the Knit-in -- but the last weekend of the month is the only weekend in February that's not pre-booked.




The first day of spring is definitely something to look forward to. Hopefully it won't still look and feel like winter then!


What an excellent list! I may have to try some of my own fiber and beer/wine pairings!


Annie is a wonderful teacher. I hope she is feeling well enough to get the class in. Beer and fiber? Now that's a win-win!

May I send you my share of DST? I know it's announcing spring and I am sooo looking fwd to that, but not DST. Oh well…

Sounds like your trip to Madison will be packed full; have fun!



I like Bonny's idea! And sincere and wonderful congratulations on your 10 year quit-iversary. That is such an accomplishment.


Yes, to DST. I didn't know it was coming so soon. More sunshine in our lives will be a good thing Hope your week is great


Looking forward to hearing about your knit-in!
I love March! So many great things to look forward to. Maybe even winter.


So many neat things on your list. Enjoy!


Great list with so many fun things coming up! Have a GREAT time in Madison!!!


Great stuff on your list. I must mark my calendar for DST. Thanks for the reminder.


I'm so sorry I missed the Knit In! (but I'm not sure Sara really wanted me there for a whole extra week :-) And you're the first person I've read who's been happy about DST - I like my extra time in the morning, so it makes me a bit grumpy...at first.
