Where I've Been

Mostly I've been sitting on my ass doing nothing. It truly amazes me that one fractured toe could sideline me so completely. Actually, I got back to work on limited basis, two weeks ago, and that has kept me busy.

As those who were at Rhinebeck saw, I finished Tim's sweater in the nick of time:

When I say in the nick, I mean it. At 10:30 the night before Rhinebeck, the sweater came off my needles.

Unfortunately, that's the last Finished Object that I have to share. I have 4, soon to be 5, projects on the needles and while I'm working on at least one of them every day, I feel like I'm making no progress at all.

I'll try to grap photos of WIPs to satisfy everyone's photo lust.

Did You VOTE Today?

Today's election might just be the most important election we will see in our lifetimes. So many issues are in flux: Women's Health Rights, Marriage Rights for ALL People, the Economy, the War in Iraq (and Afghanistan) and maybe, soon, Iran.

Who you vote for today will shape the history of this country. You will be shaping the history of this country.

Of course, I want to tell you all to Vote Obama/Biden, because I think they're the best choice for this country, but more than anything else I believe that voting is the most important privilege we, as citizens, have.

We saw, in 2000, how just a few votes could make a difference. 2004 was also close. We're hoping that 2008 will be a landslide, but you just never know.

So, if you're registered, get out there and vote!!! You'll be glad you did.

Remember, if you don't vote, you forfeit your right to complain.
