Crafting and Creating; Photography and Poetry
The only completed knitting project of 2011: a farrow rib scarf. It was also my largest project to date.
A much smaller project is now on the needles.

I dreamed of snowy owls the other night, a sign I need to get out and go birding before the irruption ends!

I witnessed a facebook discussion that recently broke out about the book Pagan Polyamory: Becoming a Tribe of Hearts. Well, it was almost a discussion, someone took offense to the very mention of the topic, causing the comment thread to implode upon itself.

I spent last Thursday night setting up and registering the Garmin eTrex Venture GPS unit the boyfriend bought me for Christmas. The Garmin site led me to the OpenCaching site, where I read their beginner’s guide to geocaching. While exploring their maps, I found a cache at the park where I regularly go walking! All excited Friday, I headed out with the coordinates downloaded into the GPS and their app downloaded to my phone.
My first geocaching attempt was a failure. In that I did not find the cache. However, I spent more than an hour out in the fresh air, clambered all over the hillside, got my heart rate up, broke a sweat, and found muscles I had not used in quite some time. I had a ball. And I’m pretty sure I circled the cache several times. Unfortunately, the light and my ankle finally gave up, and I headed down to the lake path to finish my walking.
