My Life. My Blog.

Here's a cool meme I found at January One's. So , I downloaded the form here, took a self photo, I was cracking up by the way, and here you go.

I'm in Meg's room cause she has the best self pic photo op in the house.



I've been caught up in all the Christmastime glory-The shopping the wrapping the decorating and man am I tired. I hope to get in some good knitting tonight. I finished 3 squares for Firefly and they're ready to ship. This was the most realistic way I could participate in the Knit Unto Others put together this year by Margene and Carole.



I always want to do way more than I can and when I was younger it was always all or nothing. Now I realize I can not look at this as a "Go big or go home" thing. If I do just 1 thing that helps another, then it's good. If I just wish I could do a lot, I've DONE nothing. I'll continue to do what I can. Of course, The Betties knit things all the time for whatever is calling to be done. That's our group's only requirement: 1 item per year for charity, whatever you want, however big or small. I can live with that. Girl One made a sketch for me (in about 15 minutes no less) I think you'd enjoy. she draws all her sketches with black ink and colored pencils. It's her knitting insert large smile here.



PS, I don't think the meme page is large enough to read. Blogger and Photoshop are playing tricks on me. Don't worry if you can't read it, it's not that exciting. OK, I checked, it's tiny. If you click on it, it's readable, but still not terribly exciting. Happy knitting!

Where I can get your beautiful cheekbones and flawless skin? As Yoda would say, "Very pretty you are."

I love the sketch Girl One made. Very charming and well done.

Nora said...

You look gorgeous! x

Ok, now I'll read the rest of your post...

You're so cute Carol! Thanks for the compliments and always being so sweet!

It is SO nice to put a face to the name of my cyberbuddy!! And quite a nice fact too!! Now, if I run into you in ShopRite or Stop & Shop... I'll know who you are (yeah right?!).

Hi there! It's always fun to read and see what our blogpals are like.

I did a cut and paste on your meme, then pasted it into Microsoft Word. That allowed me to open the link and see the whole thing larger and more clearly (because even with trifocals, I can't see a lot of things). Who knew you would admit to being an ax-murderer?? (A joke, albeit a poor one ...) Anyway, it's very cool.

The picture was great too. I have such a poor imagination, I realized I had just imagined you looking like my other friend Carol!

The drawing is great - I would love to be able to draw even half as well ...

Cara said...

Very nice! I love Charing Cross Road is one of my favorites as well.

I whole-heartedly agree with you about doing something, just something - I've also always been the kind to either do everything at once or nothing at all, and somehow found out it doesn't work this way. One thing at a time, I think, and every tiny little thing you can do is already something, and that is perfect in its own way (argh - do I make any sense here?)
So, I really love the squares that you did, and they sure *do* make a difference!
I could read your meme just fine by the way - yummy, this Banana Split thing sounds divine and you look lovely on that pic!

Robin said...

Great self-portrait! We never see pics of you on your blog so this was a treat! And on the meme, I LOVE Audioslave. One of the 20something guys I go to school with turned me on to them a few months ago. I always liked Chris Cornell and Rage Against the Machine so they are a great combo.

I love that drawing!

Now I can see the face behind Carol!

What a cool post. It is so nice to put a face behind a (blog)name. I love the squares that you did for Firefly and I totally understand what you mean about always putting too much on your plate. Something is always better than nothing. If more people did something then there would be so much for the others to do. :-)

Thanks for the chicken soup hug...it worked wonders.

Ha! I am like you with the alarm clock. If I need to wake up in the morning, even if I always wake up at that time anyway I can't sleep well if the alarm isn't on.

A face! A face! And I just LOVE that drawing. Especially the chubby feet.
