Aldo Tanners! Where Are Your Manners?!

This cute children's book was written by a friend of a friend.  It's available for free (for now) here on Amazon.com as a Kindle version so go ahead and grab it.  If you don't have a Kindle, you can download a free Kindle reader for your computer, laptop, tablet (but not Nook unless yours is rooted) or smartphone.  Enjoy, we sure did!

No Interest in Knitting - Scary!

I didn't get much knitting done this weekend.  Not because it was Father's Day ergo I was subject to my hubby's whims.  It was mostly because I was having such a nice time not knitting with my family. Strange, I know.  Especially since we were floating around in a little boat fishing for five hours which normally would be ideal time for knitting.

First, we found our own private island and had a picnic. 
 No interest in knitting while Bit ran after the fiddler crabs
Next we found the perfect fishing spot.
You can see that it was a glorious day.
Matthew finally hooked something other than little sharks and it was BIG!
He was letting run a bit when I took the picture but there were times when he was fighting it that the rod was practically bent in half.  No knitting done for about an hour as he fought it.  Too much excitement.

Finally, the big one got away.  It was getting late and we were a ways out so we headed back. By the time we got home, cleaned the boat, made dinner and got Bit to bed, we were beat.  One glass of wine and one or two paragraphs of my book and I was out.  No knitting until tomorrow.

New Directions

As I read through my blog entries (sparse as they are) I realized that if I am going to get back into blogging, the name and description needed to change as much as my life has changed since I first started it. 

For one, and most importantly, it's really not about just me anymore.  Also, it was started as a craft type blog but truth be told, I don't do many crafts anymore.  I am however, hopelessly addicted to fine yarn and knitting.  Finally, I've been through many life changes and challenges and as things finally start to look up, I'd like to blog about them too.  So, I came up with P3Tog because it really should be more about how, as an older first time mom, my activities are more closely related to knitting my little family together.

Please have patience with me since this is more a WIP rather than a UFO.  

Off the needles...
