knits & plants

aah, the simple life. almost.

Wednesday, January 11, 2006


Welcome to knits & plants. I've been feeling the urge to jump on the blogging bandwagon for a while, and my powers of description could certainly use a lot more exercise than they're currently getting. Reading about the exploits of literate and witty kindred blogspirits just isn't enough anymore. Sigh. Plus, it's January in Vermont. I need something to do.

So. The first order of business is to explain what you're likely to find in my blog. Hmmm. That's not so easy to explain. My brain is usually spinning faster than is good for me or those around me. But it's a good bet that I will most likely wax prolific on the following subjects:

Knitting. It's good for the soul. And my sanity.

Gardening. The completely absorbing world of trying to make teeny seeds produce a flourishing and (mostly) edible product is still very new to me. It's hard. And therefore, I want to be good at it. Obsessive-compulsive behavior at it's best, ladies and gentlemen.

Cooking. It's what happens when you marry a chef. Didn't think the making Kraft Macaroni & Cheese was a crime? Well. Me neither.

Pets. Yes, yes, I'll try to keep it to a reasonable level.

Life in Vermont. The mountains. The trees. The short but glorious period between June 15 and July 1 that we call summer. This will include, but is not limited too all the things we do to keep us warm/active/entertained/sane. And perhaps occasionally I will poke a little fun at my inability to understand some of the more puzzling Vermonter culture. Like ice fishing. And finally,

The Technophile Files. In which I will attempt to resolve my love of gadgetry and computers with the fact that we live without television, high-speed internet access or cell phones.

So there you go. This will be fun. And maybe, just maybe if I find a community of like-minded folk, I can stop harassing my friends and coworkers with the droppets of my life that they just don't get. Like why I continue to pant over yarn sales and seed catalogs. Well, maybe not. Welcome, and enjoy!

Does this mean we can get regular updates about Murphy? How is that puppy?

Murphy is his usual happy self. But there is a story. I'll put something up tomorrow.

Since when did you become such a computer nerd...? Weren't you into maps of the Ural Mountain range and stuff like that? I'm confused...
