We as a family are so glad. The Sox have long been Tim's team, and the win combined with Pinter's Nobel and Tim's 50th birthday in a few weeks make it a special time. Plus, Tim and I share the Halloween-junkie thing. I miss him, I love him, and I know he's grinning away right now.
Working on some Christmas presents with the sticks and string thing. Thanks to the delightful Gale, I have added Branching Out to my list of Christmas cheer. I love leaf patterns, and this one looks eminently do-able. I may even attempt chart navigation! (Tune in next time to see if I survive!)
