I must have become a true Californian during my 12 year stay there, because there is nothing like snow to make me jump out of bed, and, like a a 3 year old, jump up and down in front of the windows. Mind you, the big storm that was supposed to bring us feet of snow is only going to bring us a few inches, which is better that no snow at all. SO I AM HAPPY!

As a true Californian, I bundled up the children and off we went out in the cold and wind to see more snow. We took the T and decided to go to the Boston Commons.

When you go the Commons you are sure to see ducks ice-skating on the pond, policemen riding proud horses, people just standing there staring at the snow, and a caring person feeding the pigeons... and if I could only knit with my arctic gloves on, you'd find me there too, knitting my socks!

Hi ho from Petaluma. Our knitting circle is going strong. Anywhere from 5-13 people attending on Saturday afternoons. There is a second time at the cafe on Tuesdays from 2:30-5:30 pm. I plan to be there this week as I have the afternoon off.

This has been the highlight of my week for the last 7 weeks. I am a tad worried that it won't be the same for me when traveling soccer starts for my son.

This past week I was in Monterey at a very serious retreat on Pediatric Palliative Care. It helped to knit in the plenaries and workshops. Many knitters came up to me and some rushed out to get yarn. peace through knitting?

Or at the very least a wonderful way to contemplate, focus, make beautiful things and make wonderful friends.

Dear Mimi,

Petaluma is rocking. Great knitting groups, the yarn harlot coming in June, what am I doing in Boston? I guess I am enjoying the snow and knitting socks!
