What a Day!!

I have to admit that I have never been this excited nor so interested in an inauguration as I am today.  I have possessed an indifference and boredom to all the past ones, and I have been through quite a few.  They were just a continuation of all presidential eras that rolled into one.  They weren't really different from one another.
I have never watch so many speeches, rallies and all the hoopla and really watched and listened to all the words.  What is being said, how it is being said, all means more to me than I remember anything in the past.
However, I feel so hopeful for Obama.  I feel that there really can be a change.   It seems that he has surrounded himself with people that can make this happen.  We can make this happen. 
But I also realize that these are very tough times for any incoming president.  How could the economy get this bad and how can it be fixed for us and our children?  How can these two wars be resolved?  And so many other issues facing the nation.  I am cautiously optimistic, but ever so hopeful.
I am off to watch all the news coverage.  I am even not going to my Tuesday knitting group!  But I will work on my red, white and blue log cabin blanket!

i have been blogged

It has happened.  I have been blogged.  It could happen to you, too.  I will try not to bore, but I know I will.  I am not that exciting.  And this probably will not be that fun or factual, but it will be from francie.
I have been knitting since girl scouts (and I am not very young, so it has been a long time.) But in intervals during my life.  Now knitting has almost taken over my life, but not bad as others.  I enjoy it and getting more adventurous.  I will see where the adventure takes me.
