Unexpected

Hi, everyone.

Thanks for your patience with the recent inactivity on my blog. After our camping trip—which was lovely—a death in the family took me out of town and away from the blog. Uncle Blair was my mom's older brother, a higher math teacher retired from Titusville High School and the University of Pittsburgh. He taught me chess, loaned my mom the old ribbon-style typewriter that fascinated me so much I started writing stories in early grade school, introduced computers to his schools and to me, and always graciously helped when I called him with questions about my calc homework in high school. His death was not expected so soon. I have just returned to Seattle from the funeral and family activities in Western Pennsylvania and Northeastern Ohio. An unexpected trip home. Simultaneously, we've discovered other unexpected expectings... which I'll be blogging about much more in the near future.

I do have several finished knitting projects, spinning, and other fibery endeavors to share and will start putting some posts together.

My cup runneth over with the unexpected—some sad, some good, and some downright exciting!

Best wishes and good health to you all!
-Z
