Linkity’s just watching the snow fly by


Mayhem looking very action-packed!

Poor sleepy Harry…

Linkity longs for spring


Mayhem focused on something, looking very action-packed!

Snuggling siblings!

Linkity’s gotta whole lotta “WHA…?” going on

Reading Update
Every War Has Two Losers: William Stafford on Peace and War by William Stafford. This is probably best for fans of Stafford’s poetry. Until I read this, I had no idea the US had camps for conscientious objectors during World War II. Strangely, that was never mentioned in history class…

Sometimes Mayhem and Harry can just quietly co-exist, no squishing involved!

No lentils in linkity

I have fallen down the rabbit hole that is “Magical, and Some Weird, Home Tours” on tumblr. Brace yourselves! 😉


Harry sitting on top of Mayhem. The “SO DONE” expression on May’s face!

Polly being her usual cute self.

Some socks I knitted for myself from ancient Trekking yarn:


Harry staring into your soul…

Polly upsidedown cake!

Linkity lost in time

Reading Update
Creativity Takes Courage: Dare to Think Differently by Irene Smit and Astrid van der Hulst. Very good book/workbook filled with ideas to help unleash creativity.
Knitorious Murder Mystery series (1-12, starting with Knit One Murder Two) by Reagan Davis. Enjoyable cozy mystery series set in a small tourist town in Ontario.


Silly Polly is silly and adorable!

Harry keeping an ear on things.

First linkity of 2022…..

Oh hi… :waves: We’re all alive! Thanks to everyone who checked in – those were bright spots in some dark days.

So far I’m giving 2022 a 0/10 (do not recommend), to be honest. On New Year’s Eve day, I fell on ice and felt fine at the time but felt less fine over the next few days and then spent most of the next two months in bed. My hip and lower back feel SO much better now and I’m even back at work. And when I venture outside, I’m wearing something called EXOspikes on my shoes to deal with the snow and ice.


These look great, don’t they?

I hope they don’t just dissolve when my SIL wears them – I knit them from Poem yarn, which does NOT seem durable at all. Partway through, there was a knot and (although I couldn’t tell at the time) the colorway was attached backwards. 😮 Again, 0/10 (do not recommend) this yarn.


Mayhem on her way to a routine vet appointment.

Thoughtful Harry is thoughtful.

Linkity will see you in 2022!

Happy, healthy, and safe New Year to all of you!


Awwww, Polly!

“Harry, STOP IT.” -Polly

Linkity will take snow over December tornadoes, thanks

Reading Update
Take a Look at the Five and Ten by Connie Willis. Lovely holiday short! I read this in a collection, but it was years ago.
The Hungry Dreaming by Craig Schaefer. Very suspenseful and intense paranormal thriller about saving the past and future of New York City. (Don’t be alarmed that it seems to be the third book in a series – it’s not, really.)
Wabi-Sabi: For Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers by Leonard Koren. Ok, but there’s not much to it. And I’m not sure it lives up to its ambitious subtitle.


Drowsing Harry.

Polly by the window, with snow in the background. Most of that snow melted when it was 58F/14C on Wednesday. NOT normal for Minneapolis in December.

Polly asleep, Mayhem mildly annoyed/inconvenienced by Polly’s presence/existence.

Art journaling, reading, knitting, and cat parenting. It's a wild life.
