kj : schnibbles of my life

My grandfather always used the word "schnibbles" to describe the bits of things on the floor, or bites of snacks that you sneak. Sometimes that's all I can get organized to keep in one place. Schnibbles.

For those of you wanting to see it, a photo story of my vacation amd hiking can be found here: https://plus.google.com/115751571128241073483/stories/ba7cc770-bc1a-3d94-b14e-f1386e92b55a1482e9fe322?authkey=CKmK6ubthpWg3QE

I was just combining our photos from our trip so I can make prints for Steve’s dad, and it turns out Steve snapped this photo of me at Yosemite.  I hope he sees this kind of sparkle in my smile whenever I look at him, because I think he’s pretty much the greatest.


First sock off the needles, taking my time with these, I think I burnt myself out a bit on that blanket!!

Yarn is Twisted Limone and the colourway is Floating By. I’m using my usual 2.5mm needles for this with my standard sock recipe.

Love this.

Love socks.

For Erik and George…the mountain fire district station near the peak and our condo.

We hiked a lot of trails, we downed a lot of these…LITTLE CHOCOLATE DONUTS. (at The Ridge Tahoe)

Why do I have to be so socially awkward? I just want friends. BE MY FRIEND

Sounds good to me.: )  (Perhaps if no one is birb-phobic, maybe Misha and Conrad can join us too. )

I don’t know about the rest of them but I like birbs fine.  :)

I’m game, let’s do this!

I’m even currently in the state of Nevada, which puts me closer to the southwest than I usually am. Let’s do this! :)

(Actually, miles of hiking planned, so perhaps will need to fly out at another time for this party.)

So, climbed a mountain today. No big deal. Just kidding. I was super excited. #Tahoe2014 #squawvalley (at Emigrant Peak, Squaw Valley)
