A few things on our TV right now

A handful of shows we’ve been watching have either ended (CSI, Castle) or are about to start their final season (Bones, Grimm), so we’re looking for a couple of new shows to fill our brain-holes. Here are my thoughts about some pilots we’ve watched recently. Lethal Weapon – I was …

How’s this, now?

I’ve spent the morning, while dyeing yarn, working on this blog…. Becca let me know that the previous layout was odd on phones – one sidebar would cover the middle – so I’ve been looking for something “responsive” that’ll automagically resize to phones and tablets. The problem with [free] WordPress …

Blah blah blah

Huh. I tried to write this earlier this morning, but for some reason a bunch of the code was missing from my WordPress back end — I think it was a browser issue, not a WP issue, because I was having a little laptop confunction this morning, too. All better …

Head like a hole

My head is always so full after Fiber-In. As stressful as it is to get ready for an out-of-town, weekend-long show, being there is actually quite relaxing. I get to spin all weekend long, pretty much any time I’m not helping someone or eating, so I get that zen calm …

Fiber-In, ho!

Not enough hours

I overslept today for the first time in over a year – since we moved out here, anyway. I usually get up when it starts to get light, but I guess between being an overcast morning and staying up too late last night reading (The Taken by Inger Ash Wolfe) …

Dinner and Raku

Amy and Isaac are days away from having another baby, and Tim’s parents are in town staying with them in order to help out with Ranger Baby when the moment comes. So we had everyone over for dinner last night! Cetty fired up the raku kiln and timed the pull …

Remember when….?

Remember when I used to blog every morning, with coffee? Tell you a little about my day yesterday, or wax philosophic, or navel gaze, or just gab? Then I started working at home – which you’d think would make me MORE likely to blog, as a distraction/time-waster? HAHAHAHAHAHA. So this …

Works-in-Progress Wednesday

Another holiday/four-day week, which means my schedule is off-kilter! Do you feel the same way? Tuesday feels like Monday, Wednesday feels like Monday too….? In ceramics, I’m working on getting pieces done for the Florida Fiber-In, next week. Eeep! I need to fire the kiln two or three more times …
