Okay, I'll try to keep this up better.

I'm trying to figure out if I can add pictures. I THINK I can. Yay, I DID it!!! Here is one of the several Knitty Kitties I've made for the World Wide Christmas (probably should be "Holiday" to be more inclusive, but I wasn't consulted!!) 2009 Drop by Toy Society Members all over the world (next weekend). Go to toysociety.com to learn more about this cool street art project. I'm a fan of street art--I think art belongs EVERYWHERE!!!!! It's inspiring, and will lure closet artists out, I'm sure. The world needs more art--I'm sure of that, too. These are pretty significant atatements for me because there AREN'T a lot of things I'm sure about. For an older person, I've got a surprisingly open mind (maybe stuff is falling out?), because it's still not made up about a lot of things. But it IS made up about art. I LOVE all forms of art and want to see more of it everywhere. I've loved being part of Harbor Art Guild and our Six Rivers Gallery in Hoquiam. Art lights me up--it lights up the world, too, I think. I hope it lights up YOU, too, my friends. Everyone should feel "lit up" by something; for me it's art.

Cold today!

It's gotten ALL THE WAY UP to 36 Degrees F by 3:00 p.m. today. Sun will go down soon, so that's probably as high as it will go. At least we have no snow to contend with, as so many others do. I think it got down to 15 or 16 last night (I have started sleeping with a pillow over my head, to keep that part of me warm), cold for here at the coast, but I realize that would constitute a heat wave in many places now. So I'm not complaining--what is more futile than complaining about the weather or any other condition you can't change!!!
I have been knitting little Knitty Kitties for the Toy Society World Wide drop next weekend. I have close to 20 little toys to drop now and plan to drop them all around our county, which is bigger than RI, I think. Will try to post pictures of the kitties, but I am new to Blogger, so will have to see if I can do that. I'm "OLD" in some peoples' eyes (not mine, of course!), but luckily, I have some computer skills thanks to working for the Aberdeen School District for 11 years--without that experience and training, I'm not sure I'd be able to do much on a computer, but then again, maybe I would have gotten skills anyway, as I DO like computers.
