The weather in Berlin got very cold and blustery suddenly, which made me think of a nice long weekend trip that we took to the Baltic Sea, to a little town in Poland, that the Germans call Misdroy. We spent a lot of time sleeping, wandering around and eating cake.

Apparently the W-Z on the cake stands for the polish word for highway, and I was told that it was very popular to eat in the late 80's and early 90's.

Happy Sunday.


Here I am again, after a long pause. I've been wanting to post for weeks now, but have had trouble finding the time lately. Things are crazy busy around our household and there are no signs of our lives slowing down. I just need to learn how to balance everything better.

After taking two months off work this summer I've started working again, and volunteering, and I'm still trying to socialize regularly and have time for family while trying to crank out as much handmade stuff as I can. I've been feeling very overwhelmed and am hoping that I'll find my rhythm soon so that it all falls into place effortlessly. Maybe I'm crazy, but I'm not willing to cut anything from my list of things to do. The result is that the blogging falls by the wayside. I'm hoping that I'll also find a way to fit this into the routine and post at least once or twice a week on a regular basis.

I've been knitting in full force lately and hope to have a couple of sweaters finished before the really cold weather hits in December. We've been holding off putting our heat on, I think, mostly because we're in denial that winter is on its way. Even more reason to add some new sweaters to the wardrobe.

Our lovely friends at The Wardens Today did a very sweet post about me a few weeks back. I wish that I was on top of it to thank them earlier!

Happy Sunday.
