i can’t say that i have been absent from blogland for all this time….oh, no way! just absent from posting on this blog.
some ways i’ve been filling my time…with new toys, new ideas, old stand-bys, and sure, a few things to waste my time.
i think we’ve moved on. we may have even begun to learn-to-live-without them. and just when they are about to go back to work.
i’m not a huge tv watcher but i do like a good bit of interesting noise coming from that box to knit with now and again. at first i thought i may not be able to live w/o my weekly Grey’s Anatomy fix. well, thanks to the strike i found some new, fun, and sometimes interesting stuff.
gotta love cable. i’ve always had it, just was never dependent on it.
anthony bourdain you rock! fun to watch. this guy goes to everyday and out-of-the-way places but his take on things and his willingness to experience life is over the top. jamie oliver’s new cooking show “at home with jamie”, on saturday mornings of course is amazing. is that really YOUR home jamie? how adorable, where’s jules? does she live there with you? darn! celebrity rehab. (shocking for my list, i know!) a friend got me hooked on this show. and now that i’ve started watching that Dr. Drew is everywhere…talk shows, Oprah’s magazine…so i’m not the only one. hey, it was better than watching all the gossip about brittany everynight on E! interesting tv and the doc, i like him and i really like his assistant. (someone told me i remind them of her, hum? i’ll just take that as a compliment).
i never thought i would enjoy watching shows on a 2×3 inch screen with bifocals.
but my new christmas toy is awesome. and besides all the great stuff ”in my ears” that i’ve shared here before, there’s great stuff to watch on my video ipod.
i been watching a few different series that are offered on the Sundance Channel (which we don’t get on tv).
One Punk Under God…a documentary done by and about jay baker, jim and tammy faye baker’s son who is now a pastor of a very cutting-edge church, trying to pull his life together, and remain sane after being raise by those parents. and….Iconoclasts. pairs up two famous icons in unrelated fields and they share a glimpse inside their lives. like following them through their thoughts, days, and lives. interesting to watch.
yoga, yoga, yoga.
i head to the studio twice now most weeks. love it! and i’m seeing and feeling great results.
all this snow has made for a winter of cozy knitting. this season i’ve knitted through some hats, mittens, scarfs, a sweater…..just to name a few.
i live my life in rows.
i’d like to talk about my new cookbooks and new found blog finds.
