Same Show, Different Channel

So, I have decided that it is time for me to go beyond the walls of MySpace and venture out into the webworld of "official" blogging. I hope all my old friends and followers can find me here. If I had any...

Not that I have not been throwing my words to the masses that for the last several months, but since I do not normally allow my exhibitionist side to reveal herself--I figure it was go public this way or marching topless in Toronto this weekend in the Pride Parade. Trust me, this needs a lot less support.

Well, summer has officially begun here for me. The niblets are off to their grandparents for the summer, although my daughter will be coming back next week for three glorious weeks of summer camp. She was all excited for this until she received the information that Grandma was getting a pool for the backyard. Then I had to remind her that staying with Mom for a while and seeing friends and going on trips without her brother was really a good thing.

But, until then, I get to eat food that does not come from a Tyson bag or contains ketchup as a condiment, and indulge my baking skills with an apple torte I saw demonstrated this past weekend on the Barefoot Contessa. I also just received a copy of Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch. Since I do not have the time to indulge in a class at WEBS, and having been inspired by the visit here by the lovely
Yarn Harlot, it is time to teach myself to knit socks.

I have also stocked up on the bar, as I believe that will become necessary for this project.


  1. Yea for summer freedom! And Kristi, I'll follow your blog anywhere. :)

  2. Ahhh...tell Abbey pools are 'overrated'. They make your skin wrinkly and then you smell like a chemical factory. Although that hasn't deterred me.... And I'm just curious. Why, specifically, does knitting SOCKS require a bar? I think summer freedom most definitely requires a bar : )

  3. Your blog looks great.

    Our company has been representing authors for the past twenty years. We would love to add you to our database to receive press releases from them regarding books applicable to the genres you review.

    Thank you in advance,
