For a few weeks now I have been thinking about a tangle that would resemble a knot.A couple of nights ago I wasn't sleeping well so I got up and tangled a little bit.  After looking at pictures of knots on the internet and on my shoes, I came up with an idea that I will share with you here. I call it Not-a-knot.

I also looked at the poinsettia in my dining room and came up with a pattern I call Settia.

Here is Not-a-knot.

Music Monday2

Yesterday I saw the St. Olaf Christmas Festival concert at a movie theater in Madison.  It was broadcast live.  I think back to when my son, Paul, was a student at St. Olaf and performed in these annual events; it was always a wonderful way to begin the Advent season.  Now my niece, Jennifer, is a student at St. Olaf and was in the concert this past weekend.

For those of you who have seen it live or even on a local PBS station you do know what I mean when I say it is a wonderful event.

I am including few you tube videos here of the St. Olaf Choir performing.  Enjoy!!!

Foto Friday December 2, 2011

Photography has never been my thing but I do appreciate good photographs when I see them.  I am going to try an experiment for the next year.  Every Friday I am going to take a picture (actually two pictures and post them in my blog. One will be a picture of the tree in our front yard and the other will be a view from where I do my Tai Chi in the spring summer and fall.  It is in Fowler Park about a mile from our house.  I like to go there in the early morning, take my iPad with and do my Tai Chi right next to the lake.  I will be taking pictures of the view there. We will see how the weather changes the view.
