The Night Before Christmas
'Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the hutch
Not a creature was stirring;
We'd eaten too much.
I'll finish the poem after I've had some sleep. That whole turkey thing did me in.
But in the meantime I wish you and yours a wonderful ... Christmas? Hanukka? Kwanzaa? Oh, whatever you celebrate -- have a good one.

Rabbitch's photostream on Flickr.
What I've been up to.
In The Halls of the Mountain King
That's where I've been. In the halls, the caves. Caverns.
Sorting shit out.
I will neither confirm nor deny that I was gnawing on rodents whilst in the caves. We will never again speak of this.
I've also been on Facebook an awful lot ... that thing is a drug, isn't it? I never expected it to suck me in so far that I couldn't write for three months though.
To the two or three people who are still reading me, I apologize.
I'm ok. The little black dog of depression bit me so hard that I went to bed for three days at one point, but I'm a mom and any mom who's worth her salt just gets back up and keeps on going, which is what I did.
I shut down my Etsy store for a while, because I couldn't deal with not really having a place to work (the dining room isn't such a great venue) and not having the time to keep the store stocked. I do have a ton of stuff ready to go and I'll be opening it up again in January. I've ditched the "Toe Jam" label and the new yarn will be called "I'm Burnin' For Ewe". There will be some of the same colourways and a few new ones that have presented themselves to me, as well as a repeat of some very old ones I found in my dyebook and want to do again. But, like I said, January ... the next few weeks will just be about my family.
Another thing I've been doing a lot of is going out to the forest and the beaches and taking photos. I'm really getting into photography and the link to my Flickr stream is in the last post. I have a great need to be alone and silent and witness beauty. I think some of those photos are worth looking at.
I promise I'll be posting more ... I just needed to fall down a bit and perhaps reinvent myself. To the folks who are still reading -- I appreciate it. Imma be more interesting shortly.
And Merry Christmas to you. Or Happy Holidays. Whatever works for you.
