Two Last Photos from Florida

Sunday, March 15th, 2009

The photos I took in Florida are taking longer to show you, than the amount of time we were down there! I guess it is nice to reflect on time away. It is so easy to forget those times when we hit the ground running as we return home.

Here is a truck full of oranges. We were near the Tropicana Juice factory (yum).

Imagine how many trees, and how many people were involved in getting that fruit to the place where my favorite juice is made. That is a LOT of oranges!

We then proceeded on our trip, visited Brian’s parents and relatives, saw Bok Tower Gardens, went to see Kathy and Pedro, and came back to Lakeland.

While we were away, Mom had been busy inviting the world to our concert. When it came time to sing, there were 38 people in the audience!

Now, Brian’s family brought a van with 5 people in it from near Tampa. However, everyone else came because my mother had invited them. She rocks.

We really had a fun concert. The folks there were quite enthusiastic and paid rapt attention to every song. It just was a lovely afternoon.

Thanks for making it happen, Mom!

A Package (Very Exciting One) in the Mail!

Sunday, March 15th, 2009

I got this package in the mail last week:

It is Donna Druchunas‘ new book, published by my friend Deb Robson (blog: The Independent Stitch) of Nomad Press. Tbe title is Ethnic Knitting Exploration (Lithuania, Iceland and Ireland). I’m excited about Donna’s way of presenting the material and I’m excited by the ideas that could be brought into fruition with the help of this book.

Donna is having a blog tour for her book for the month of April. It starts with Keyboard Biologist on April 1, I get my turn on April 4. You can see the blog tour schedule on Donna’s blog.

Meanwhile I’m really checking out all the possibilities in this exciting book. The topics could take a knitter in so many possible directions!!!
