once more, with feeling

Hey all - 

Another quick note to say that I am indeed again still alive, and once again ensconced in Southern climes...
Dad's doing very well, and the hip is settling in nicely.
This time, it was Mom's turn - we're getting the final word on some mammogram results, and she'll go get something suspicious removed in a few weeks.

Ever feel like you are having one of those years where the turkey button just popped, and everything happened all at once?

Yeah. Like that.

Makes a girl feel like she should just have one of these installed in her kitchen.

But there has been knitting!
And there's that other sweater, too. A nice bit of loveliness in and amongst the craziness of this summer.
