She doesn't even really want a pair of my hand knit socks.
They feel weird, she says.

But I will continue to knit.

My grandma just knit a long scarf-like object. It wasn't for anyone.
I don't remember her making gifts.

She knit to knit.

I like that I am like my sweet grandma.
Her name was Julia.

I like to do things with my hands.

I like to: cross stitch, needlepoint, quilt, knit and play Tetris on my Gameboy.

When I am watching television, which is often, I am always doing something with my hands.

But guess what I just realized. You can't knit or play Tetris when you are watching a foreign film.
I have so many foreign films in my Netflix queue...what's a girl to do?

I have taken all of your great advice about getting your children to drink water to heart!
Thank you!

Katie now is told to drink water before she drinks a Capri Sun and
She is carrying a Chapstick in her pocket and taking it to school.

I bought her some bottled water that I will put in containers we have around the house for now.

It's a step in the right direction and I appreciate your wonderful ideas!


“She has a wonderful vitality and a natural optimism. That’s the best medicine anyone could have.”
The Bells of St. Marys

This morning on the way to school Katie and I talked about having a positive attitude.
A positude, I told her.

I told her being enthusiastic and positive would get her everywhere.

Being a Debbie Downer would get her no where.

And that's what we talked about on the way to school.

I think about this a lot.

In business and life and love and influence....

Be ye positive.

I Am Legend

"I think we can't go around measuring our goodness by what we don't do, by what we deny ourselves, what we resist, and who we exclude. I think we've got to measure goodness by what we embrace, what we create, and who we include.”

“Life is to give, not to take.”
Les Miserables (1935)

Positively Yours,
