Where's My Mojo?

I've lost my knitting mojo.  And my spinning mojo.  I don't know where it went, but it's gone.  This has happened before, but never so abruptly or completely.  At least that I can remember.  I have started plugging away on the cable sweater again, after a break during hot weather.

I'm feeling well enough to get out more and start making new friends, though, which is great.  I chatted up a guy on Friday night, and we went out Sunday.  He's from out of town, but a good date is a good date!

I'm Going to London!

I was trying to think of a clever title for this post but excitement got the better of me.  In Oct I'll be flying to London for a week!  I'm a bit overwhelmed right now, so I haven't started compiling a list of Must See Places.  A day up at Oxford is high on the list, with a stop-and-gawk at the Bodleian library.  I'm really looking forward to checking out the V&A, too, which has been on my wish list for over a decade.  And art!

What's hilarious are the weather warnings.  It sounds exactly like Seattle in Oct.

Six Years Ago

I stood in Superior Court and swore that my marriage was irretrievably broken.  I rebuilt myself and remade my life.  I've made new friends, live where I'd always wanted to live, and am altogether happier than I ever was back then.

You'd think this would be a more important anniversary, but most years it passes unremembered.  Recently someone was asking about my past, which caused it to come to mind.  That and my building's windows are being washed the same day, and repeatedly seeing the notices jogged my memory ;)

Ch Ch Ch Changes

In the past month I made some big med changes.  Long story short, I feel like myself again!  I can read and remember books!!!  I've finished The Scarlet Letter, now onto Brave New World, and have a whole stack of books waiting.  The library is my friend again :)  My vocabulary has mostly returned as well, which is awesome.

I have so much more energy, though so far that's tempered by side effects as my body recalibrates itself.  I've started taking a self-paced college Algebra class online, and am hoping to brush up on my very rusty German.  EdX has some amazing courses, too, which I hope to take advantage of at some point.

The social prospects are the most exciting.  And I may even begin sewing again.  I definitely want to design, knit and publish at least one of the lace knitting patterns in my design notebook!

Google [Censored]

Not only is Google bent on world domination, that world will be censored.  Anyone try out Google's voice recognition?  No luck for dog breeders, cat fanciers or anyone who ever uses four-letter words.  Why so Nanny State, Google?  Apple software will happily dictate any swear word you throw at it.  Apparently Google doesn't see the world comprised of grown ups, but clients waiting to be told what they should or shouldn't say.

And no, the irony that I'm posting this on Google's Blogger is not lost on me.  At least Google still lets us web search for their World Domination plans???
