  1. Good morning! Hope you have nice wool socks on, along with that flannel nightgown even as I write! My news is: I am driving. I am practicing with a cane. I am working hard and feeling great. LM has appointed herself my “girl friday” so last night she came with me to a social justice network meeting, helping me to carry some of my gear. She slays me when she gets this very no-nonesense, serious, determined look of “out my way folks, I’ve got important things to do.” God I adore my kid! Have a fun knitting in public and celebrating Princess’ b-day. 🙂
