Got nature?

A few weeks ago (this Spring is just racing past) we went to Wekiwa Springs for a few days, to stay with Amy and Isaac as Amy and Tim’s parents were in town. Cetty and Joe, having just spent almost a week with us, went down as well (Cetty could …

Shake off the dust

I can’t believe I’m just copying and pasting this from Facebook, but… it’s where I wrote it first, and I’d rather take a long hot shower this morning than rephrase and rewrite it. #Honesty I had such a great time at ICFA I almost don’t even know where to start. …

Barrayar

Barrayar by Lois McMaster Bujold My rating: 4 of 5 stars I finished the first one and cracked open (well, if you can “crack open” on the Nook) the second book on the same night, so it really felt more like I was reading one looooong book. One long, good …

OMG RSS WTF

Not that I’ve had many days in the last month that have allowed for this, but usually I have a routine when I wake up — get my first cup of coffee and sit down in front of Google Reader and scroll through all of the blogs and news sites …

Shards of Honour by Lois McMaster Bujold My rating: 4 of 5 stars I liked what another reviewer said – “What are these sensible, mature adults doing in the middle of my space opera?” Over the Christmas holidays last year, Aunt Gay recommended this series to me. She said it …

#include

The other week, Craig joked on Facebook (or at least I thought he was joking) that he wished there was a weekend beer delivery service because if anyone needed it, it was me — then he showed up and brought me a Growler of Swamphead! Cottonmouth, which I love! I …

Brain! On! Fire!

I want to thank the entire Conyers (et all – I don’t think I even know *everyone’s* last names!) clan for letting me borrow Colette for the week — the last few days have been so fun, so enlightening, so amazing, and since I’ve had these ideas in my head …

Scheduling

About three months ago, I took a harsh look at my work schedule. I do three main things (ceramics, soaps, and yarns), and with bringing the lip balms and lotions in, I was looking for a better way to do things than a few minutes of ceramics every day, soap …

Welcome

I’ve had the cat welcome sign for a while, and just found the dog one on Ebay. I don’t know why I bought it, the cat one hardly ever sells – in fact, I’ve given about three times more of them as gifts, than have sold – but I couldn’t …
