It’s Monday sweet people, and it’s a beautiful day to be alive!

Dance party!

Yes, I really am THAT chipper on a Monday morning. I’m allowed having one small coffee a day – that is a HUGE reason to celebrate!

I have to say, my husband is a huge part of why I feel this awesome. He supports my craziness, he helps me emotionally, and he is just plain there for me.

Give me a hug!

My kids too – they are my world. I want to do so much for them and with them. This journey to health and happiness is so, so worth it!

Being weird together as a family is the best thing ever!

My biggest thing is remembering to take time for me. It’s the hardest thing in the world for me to do because, as I’ve said, my kids are my life. I’m not a sit in the tub and read kind of lady.

So not me…

I’m a gamer – my ‘me’ time is usually playing WoW or reading books. I love to go for walks and hope I can get back into that soon. Yoga could be me time too! Hmmm…

I often wonder how my husband puts up with me. Then he kisses me and I know…

Never Not Knitting

“Oh, there you are, Albus,’ he said. ‘You’ve been a very long time. Upset stomach?’
‘No, I was merely reading the Muggle magazines,’ said Dumbledore. ‘I do love knitting patterns.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Honestly – if my hands would allow it, I would knit constant. DAMN YOU CARPEL TUNNEL!!!

I knit up the most adorable little book for my tapestry needles the past weekend. The pattern is from Raveler Carole R (aka Mewsli) and is called Emily’s Needle Book

I seriously love this little thing and the metal Horde Button makes my gamer heart happy!

It’s the simple things in life that can at times bring the most happiness. Now to block that book and make it’s shape more uniform.

KNIT ALL THE THINGS!

Side note – knitting is also awesome for the mental health. It is a wonderful form of meditation.

I found the song below on YouTube but Googled it to make sure I gave credit where credit is due (no singer/writer was listed). As per the blog it came from, Never Not Knitting blogspot (which is now Never Not Knitting), I added the names that were listed.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. All I can say is – wow. I read off the list of cabinet ministers with my mother yesterday. I almost felt like crying. What an extremely wonderful group of people you have chosen to help run our nation. Completely gender equal (BOOYAH!), extremely educated in life, work, and schooling.

It’s bizarre to me how such politics can affect my outlook on my life. I feel positive – positive that positive changes are coming.

Just – WOW.

A bit of geekery for the day

I’ve read most of the novels, I’ve played the game…now I can’t wait to watch the MOVIE.

World of Warcraft The Movie – sidebar – CLANCY FUCKING BROWN AS Blackhand…let that sink in. Here’s a decent overview of what’s to come –

and a leak of some footage (the footage is potato quality, but there you have it) –

Blizzard is also releasing a new expansion – earlier than the normal time frame. World of Warcraft: Legion – it may even convince my husband to resub…ILLIDAN!!!

Guild Wars 2 has an expansion coming out…maybe it’s time for me to get back into playing it?

Here’s Wooden Potatoes overview of Heart of Thrones (I’m kind of posting it here so I can remember where to find it…) –

In a nut shell – my two favourite games…vying for everyone’s attention. WoW always seems to be the front runner, let’s hope Blizzard makes this one better than the last few expansions. Mind you, I do enjoy the garrison from Warlords of Draenor. GW2 for me has been stagnant for months. I know they have the living storyline and all that. But I’m a casual player. I like to log into the game and know where the heck I am and what I’m doing. Time to head back to Lion’s Arch and see the new look (hubby told me it’s rebuilt).
