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.

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

“You’re not the boss of me!” -Harry

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.

It’s beginning to look a lot like linkity, all around the town

Mayhem, concerned that I might pick her up.

Harry glamor shot!

Polly, very focused on something outside the window.

Polly and Harry on my bed.

Linkity’s looking forward to the end of 2021

My surgery went well, everything was benign, I’m healing fine, and so far I’m coming up negative for covid. Hey. Living the dream! (Some family members who stopped by to visit and drop off Thanksgiving leftovers for me on Black Friday [masked, as was I] have tested positive for covid. So!)

Reading Update
The Book of Raven: Corvids in Art and Legend by Angus Hyland & Caroline Roberts. Lovely book, exactly what it says on the tin.

All three cats on me! You can see marks from my fingers on Mayhem’s head.

Harry under the “EEEEEEK” blanket from Target.

Sleeping Polly.

Harry smug, Mayhem annoyed.

Last linkity of November!

No linkity next week! I’m having surgery Tuesday to remove a (most likely not cancerous) ovarian cyst, plus the ovaries and tubes. Send happy laparoscopic thoughts my way!! (And I am soooo ready to be done with 2021 and all of the health fun it’s brought my way.)

Polly and the Very Dirty Paw.

That bit of vine outside the window torments Harry so!

Sleeping siblings. Awwww!

Harry knows if you’ve been bad or good, apparently.

In which linkity contains a photo of completed knitting! (I hope you were all sitting down.)

Socks for me from Sparkly Grainbow yarn (Artistic Yarns by Abi) – Nicole knit herself a pair of socks from this yarn and I HAD to do the same. (Guest appearance by Polly.)

Polly upside down cake!

Intent, focused Harry is focused and intent!

Mayhem suffering Harry’s presence.

“Wha…?” -Polly

Mayhem looking, as someone commented on Insta, “not just tragic, but French levels of tragic.”

Intent Harry is intent!

Happy not-Halloween-yet linkity!

The cute! It burns!!!!!!

Harry does not approve of your shenanigans.

Intense Polly is intense.
