Thinking of him...

Well, my stacks are getting larger.. I am not crocheting quite as voraciously as I was, but the work is progressing slowly on my brother's blanket. For those of you who are new to my blog, my brother is currently serving in Afghanistan.

Last night I kept my eyes open long enough to watch the Diane Sawyer interview with Randy Pausch about his Last Lecture at Carnegie Mellon. Oh, it was wonderful. Truly sad, but uplifting and enlightening all at the same time. Now, I have a new item for my wish list, his book. If you are unfamiliar with him, please check out the site! It is worth every minute! You can also watch his last lecture here.

Have a happy day!
gggrrrr... blogger is still acting up.. 2/3 of my sidebar is gone.. can you see it? and comments still aren't working right..

I watched that program last night and was very impressed with Mr. Pausch. Pancreatic cancer is heinous, but he is an amazing soul.

You're making great progress on the blanket. Your brother will love it.

Do you write sonnets? :>

Abbie said...

Nope, this is really the only writing that I do. Typically I can barely get a proper sentence out!

I just read about Randy Pausch's book this morning when Borders sent an email announcement.

Your stacks are looking good and I know your dear brother will appreciate your act of love in making the blanket.

Your blanket looks like it is coming along, there is nothing like the feel of a cricheted blankie under your chin to feel like home!

Thanks for the info on the music, I was one who inquired (well, it was my hubby!)

Good luck with your seeds!

You have been a busy gal!

hello Abbie girl, I love you! I can't wait to see the entire blankiet for your brother. What is his name?

I watched the show last night too. I still have to watch the lecture, or get his book.

I watched the Randy Pausch interview. One of my favorite lines was something his wife said, "It is what it is. No matter how much I want to change it, I can't. It is what it is." That couple is handling such a difficult situation with so much grace.

Love the stack for the blanket; your brother will love it.
