what Lincoln said

Abe is quoted as saying "People are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." I want to remind my darling daughter of this the next time she decides to make up her mind in advance. Before you do, decide to have a good time!

green leaf socks, originally uploaded by alicethelma.

Earlier, I took a break from my latest obsession of selling old newspapers on eBay to hunt down a child sized person to model the green leaf socks. A. did a splendid job. It turns out that her mother also has very small feet - a child's size 2! I have never met anyone with such tiny feet, me coming from the land of Germanincaly big feet.

A.'s sister T. also took part in the photo session. There is nothing more satisfying to me than finishing a pair of socks. *sigh*

Oh yeah, look for me on eBay as, you guessed it, "alicethelma". I'm selling all kinds of fun stuff - even yarn!
