Yes, I said it. Long time, no blog? I have excellent reason! I didn't know it at the time, but I had a bad case of sinusitis the first week of July, kept on feeling crummy. Wasn't until this past week that my allergist ordered an x-ray of my sinuses... Continue reading

ha! I said I was going to get a Little Swift and I did. I also figured it deserves its' own special blog post as well. Isn't it lovely? It's the Cork version of the Little Swift which is a bit spendy, but well worth it for its beauty. I... Continue reading

Yes, it is March already, ladies and gentlemen! The Good & The Bad News: Got my tax return, splurged on putting more $$$ into my ROTH IRA, then purchased a replacement knitting project bag for the one that broke its string, and a new Coach wristlet via their Coach Factory... Continue reading

joy, joy. I may have used that as a blog title in the past, but I don't even care. I was among the first 10 or so people in the door to the fiber market at Madrona Fiber Arts on Thursday and scored 3 skeins of Goth Socks, my main... Continue reading

If you haven't been watching the news, lemme fill you in! Snow. Lots of it. Enough for it to cover me up to my calves in places, and enough for me to spend nearly an hour scraping off snow from my car. Let alone going to work. Let alone picking... Continue reading

Sorry, can't get that song out of my head from the Kohl's Ad on TV. :-) Wow, how long as it been? Yes, I've been to California and back in one piece! San Diego to be more specific, but I think you caught onto that by the photo above. Oh... Continue reading

It's been forever, I know. My post title should hopefully explain why that is so. There's something unjust about working a job that does not give you weekends off. It'll be five straight weekends that I've worked by the time I leave for San Diego in a few weeks...seems like... Continue reading

is underway! Hello, all. I have been a horrific blogger. My one class, volunteerism (I won't say how frustrated I was to find out someone else with a master's degree in a completely unrelated subject is getting paid to work in the field I'm trying to break into made me),... Continue reading

Long time, no blog! Classwork and this marginal new job has been taking up my time (and I do mean marginal, definitely not "support yourself money"), but I digress. Knitting and gardening have been on my plate lately. What about you? Finally got around to planting my poppies. The yellow... Continue reading
