Cable Knitting Without Cable Needle

I discovered this video. (It was not made by me, but is from KnittingHelp.com.) It is extremely useful. I have always wanted to know how to make the crisscrossing cable stitches in my knitting. Now I know. When I finish my next knitting project, I’ll post it!

Some people, no matter ho…

Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty – they merely move it from their faces into their hearts.

Reading, Reading, Reading

Reading….reading….reading.  My favorite thing to do.  The one activity that relaxes me and rids me of all my anxiety.  The only activity that gives me a warm, soft, happy, contented feeling in my heart at the very mention of its name.  Reading.  I’m crazy about it.  And I’m not ashamed to say so.

Before I could even sit up, my mom would lay on the ground next to me, hold a book above me and read to me.  I loved it.  When I could sit up, I went through huge piles of books and made up stories to go with the pictures.  I loved it.  When I could crawl outside, I decided to stay comfortably on my picnic blanket with a stack of books while my brothers ran around me on the grass entertaining themselves.  I loved it.  When I learned to read, (which I did rather quickly,) I started reading and reading and reading.  And that’s what I’ve done ever since.  I love it.  I loved it.  I’ll always love it.  At ten or eleven years old I fell in love with the classics.  At five years old I decided to be a writer.  Have I ever changed my mind?  No.

This is what I do.  I read.  I envelope myself in books, in the varied cultures, people, and places.  My imagination takes me out of this world and into another one, and that is where I am truly happy.  A coffee shop, a cozy chair, a porch swing, a soft bed, a trampoline or the green grass are all places where I can and will be perfectly content.  If I have a book.

It’s magic.

Watership Down Book Review

Image

Title:Watership Down

Publication Date: November, 1972

Author: Richard Adams

Genre: Classic, Heroic, Fantasy, Fiction, Novel, Animals

Description:  Watership Down is a warm tale of adventure that requires a certain amount of energy, imagination, and patience.  This is a book that moves slowly, with artistic writing, expressive word-choice, and creative characterization that provides you with characters whom you consider as friends.  Author Richard Adams eloquently creates rabbits with their own culture, language, poetry, mythology, proverbs, and civilizations.  Some people may say that this book is slow and boring, being about rabbits.  I believe that you just need to delve into it to appreciate it and learn to love it.  I personally love to sit down in a cozy armchair in the winter and snuggle up to a worn but well-loved copy of Watership Down, which forever remains one of my favorite books. 

Rating: ***** Five Stars

A Rainy Day

Image

The silver streams of rain decided to fall today,

Just like my tears did.

The gray clouds, white fogs, wet grass.

Salt tears, big eyes, pink cheeks.

I ran outside on the pavement,

Barefoot.

And I yelled up at the sky,

I told it of all my misfortunes.

I let everything out,

Blaming, yelling, crying.

The rain washed away my hard life,

It cleared my mind, my heart, my soul.

It let me pour everything out,

Just as it poured out all its rain.

And for the first time,

I was free.

Now I’m free.
