Hello to everyone:

I would like to meet at people's houses . . . but my house burned down on Monday (also my first day at a new job) and I am living a nightmare right now.  So please keep me in your thoughts and prayers and keep me in the loop on what we decide to do because I do want to stay a part of the group I just don't know when my life will be normal enough to make it.
My kids and I made it out ok (though the youngest didn't grab shoes first), and the dog.  The cat died.  Some things from downstairs are salvageable but the upstairs is a complete loss.  Imagine having to watch all your knitting, and all your wonderful alpaca and cotton and linen and silk and mohair yarns go up in flames.  Not to mention all your clothes.  And all your books.  And all the memorabilia from your grandparents and great-grandparents.  And I haven't been here long, as some of you know, so I had no renter's insurance yet (no lectures please) . . . but it wouldn't have mattered so much anyway because the "things" that mattered the most to me insurance couldn't replace.
Anyway.  I do count my blessings.  I do.  Because I know it could have been much, much worse.
Sorry to ramble, all.  And thanks for listening.

I really like relaxing at Starbucks.  Many times that is the only day in a week that I allow time to knit, and the situation there seems conducive to handwork.
