Fall Foliage Photo Contest Voting Now Open

You can now cast your ballot for who has the best fall foliage in knit bloggerland :) You are limited to one vote per day but you can come back and vote everyday if you'd like. All of our participants will receive goodies but the winner will receive a basket of goodies that will include some self striping sock yarn, stitch markers made by moi, cute sheepie socks and some other yet to be determined yummies but surely chocolate will be involved. Many thanks to those of you who shared a piece of your world with us. Stay tuned to see who wins on Monday, Nov. 29th.

I also need to take a moment to thank those of you who helped me put things into perspective (I'm referencing my Nov. 12th post). Us Scorpios can be very emotional people from time to time and I think I got overwhelmed with the amount of negative energy that a small number of people generated in the KRSP programs. However, we all know that the squeeky wheels get the grease and I've had some really squeeky wheels that required a great deal of attention. I lost perspective and I apologize if I made anyone feel bad in the process. I did not feel that Kerstin attacked me individually nor am I angry with her. I DO believe that we need to use our power, influence and abilities to make the world a better place instead of wasting it by spewing venom at one another which seems to be what I've seen in the media, on the forums and in our blogs.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my ramblings, leaving bits of encouragement, laughing at my corny jokes and being wonderful virtual friends. My life is richer with you in it :) Have a great weekend!

Meeting you was such a joy in my life. Remember that lots of folks in the knit blog work think you are just a marvelous little lady. Keep on keepin' on! And have a great weekend, too! Hugs!

I'm a fellow Scorpio and just as emotional. I've been a bit behind on my blog reading, so I've just now read your Nov. 12th post. I'm glad you've regained perspective on everything, but I have to say that I agree with a lot of what you said. I joined RAOK and one of the Secret Pal programs as a way to meet others and to try and brighten someone's day. I've been saddened to see emails sent by other RAOK members to say that they're leaving the group because they feel that they can't afford to send out gifts. I also feel guilty for not being brave enough to speak up and say something about it, but that's my non-confrontational personality coming out. :-)

Sorry to be so wordy, but you touched a sensitive spot.

Your children are adorable.

I'm still learning all the abbreviations, so I still assumed it DSS was another abbreviation of an endearment for a son.
