Well Hanane, thank you for holding down the blog fort so to speak, during my absence! Hugs to you!! Oh so much to talk about, questions to answer, knitting to brag on…..sigh. Thanks to all the kind people who left comments too, both of us really appreciate your kindness and support! So let’s get right to it.
Moving! Yay!! Surprisingly, things are going pretty well. I wish I had more time for simple things like blogging but I will be back with a vengeance in late August!! So until then, I will be lurking about and try to post when I can. A sneak peek at my new backyard! I tell you, I am not kidding why I say I cannot wait to leave this neighborhood!!!
So knitting content…because we are about knitting right??? I have been making small projects. Right now I have three scarves on the needles and I am most pleased with my chevron scarf from “Last Minute Knitted Gifts”. I used STR byBlue Moon Fiber Arts, and while I have always been a small needle knitter (anything over size 10 makes me shake) I honestly want to poke my eyes out from the sheer repetition of the pattern, but who can argue with the results. Sure it’s finished NOW and being blocked as we speak, but here is a picture of it!
So next up…the questions…… No I have never worked for a Jewish Organization. I would think that it would be just as difficult as Hassan working for the Muslim Organization though. Purely my opinion but I think when members of the same faith get together, there is bound to be some clashes, even if we are all supposed to believe in the same way! I will mention this question to my mother who worked in a parochial school for YEARS!!! I do vaguely recall problems but I am not sure if they were religious or just “estrogen fueled”. You know how it goes when there are too many women in the workplace…meow!! Ha ha!!! But I don’t know if either of us have mentioned, we are BOTH converts to our respective religions from the Catholic faith! Hanane, maybe we should touch on this a little bit?? Might make for an interesting topic, Don’t you think??
On the movie front, I did see “Evan Almighty”. It was cute and not as bad as the critics claimed. While it was no “Casablanca” or “Gone With The Wind”, it was a wonderful two hour diversion. And as far as “Apocolypto”….. I have no desire whatsoever to see it. I don’t mind subtitles at all (I loved Pan’s Labyrinth) or some gore, but I can not get past Mel Gibson for his anti semitic comments. Drunk or not, that was uncalled for and I cannot and will not support that. And I really loved him in “Braveheart” (being the Anglophile that I am) and I cannot even watch that any more….sigh…..
Phew, this is a long post but I guess I needed to post a “good one” to make up for all the one sided posting these days!! And Hanane, I am so PROUD of you for all your schoolwork, and joining Weight Watchers!!! Way to Go Girl!!!
So I guess I will sign off for now. I PROMISE I will get back to posting soon…….and now, back to packing!!!!
