As a family, we have worked miracles this summer. ANd here are the two people who have done and achieved the most, IMHO.

Northern California Camp Cog is next up for Camp CogKnitive! Dates TBA!

Philly Camp CogKnitive is still in planning stages--no date yet. Hotel and other suggestions welcome.

Raleigh, NC Camp Cog is a definite maybe...

DFW TX Camp Cog....I really hope so! I am scared off by the Open Carry Protest groups right now, but we'll see.

CFR 6 is coming! Oct 11. 2014!
More information here! Sign ups for everyone continues...

Celebrating our listeners who have joined the CogKnitive 25 – , 50 –, and 75 – Bear Clubs for MBP. You can see who they all are right here. Great work!

Dizzy Blondes: 

I've gotten back my processed roving from Mette and Tom of Ranch of the Oaks! It includes fluff from my llamas + Rashida the alpaca!

Dizzy Blonde Studios Mean Girls' Yarn Club still has openings!

Selective Journaling

Put a Lid On It:

Some cooling down of the weather has led to stews and such in my kitchen.

Aw Shoot!

Okay, so I have discovered that I can use a mild running injury as an excuse to wear a tight skirt and low pumps and walk slowly....

The racing season is upon me!

Summer Running Essentials:
Please remember to hydrate you and any running pals.
Important facts:
one gallon of water weighs 8.3 pounds
Any mammal can carry only up to one quarter of its weight.

Ruffwear backpacks for dogs.

Something I Really Like:
I'm watching Season 1 of the AMC series Once Upon a Time on Netflix.


We have completed an amazing summer. Struggles to get an appropriate educational placement for my son. Thanks to our own well-loved Allison 1031 for her review of Camp CogKnitive on her podcast The Hollywood Knitter.
