But then this happened, and made me doubt myself.. It was quiet and it was pretty. But then this happened and made me a little nervous… A branch on this tree (you know, the three that routinely tosses big sticks at our vehicles?) cracked under the weight of the leaves and snow and came to […]Read More: So, I thought it was still October

For the love of Flickr
Remember when I used to post Flickr Favorites on Fridays? Can you believe it’s been almost a year since I did it last? Yep. Long time. I’ve been favoriting photos since then, but I haven’t been sharing them. Last night I set out to make mosaics of everything I haven’t shared since the last time, […]Read More: For the love of Flickr
Ok, so, I’ve been wearing my new Tea Leaves cardigan everywhere, and pretty much every day since I finished it. I realized maybe I was going overboard when I dropped by my parents’ house last week and my mother quipped, “gee, I haven’t seen that sweater before…” Ok, point taken. Heh.

Reasons to be Cheerful: Fall Edition
It’s a yearly tradition for me to go on and on about how much I love the fall, yet here we are in mid-October and I have yet to fill my quota of autumnal gushing. Clearly this must be rectified at once. One look out the window (or several errands out in the car) this […]Read More: Reasons to be Cheerful: Fall Edition
We went adventuring this weekend, following Neil to Maryland for CapClave, and then going off on our own with our friend Jenn and her little girls to see a few of the sights of Washington DC.

If I waited until I had a finished project to show you before I posted, it would be some time before you heard from me again, I suspect. So I thought I’d show you what I’ve got on the needles, on the hook, and in the sewing pile. I’ve got about a million in-progress projects […]Read More: In progress

Sunday in the Swamp
Today was a beautiful and warm October Sunday. My children were content to spend a lazy afternoon in their PJ’s playing video games, but me? Not so much. So I grabbed my camera and went solo to one of the prettiest places I know: The Great Swamp Wildlife Refuge. Do you see the frog in […]Read More: Sunday in the Swamp

You’re not really a nerd, are you?
I think I’ve figured out something about you. Your eyes kind of glaze over when I start talking about apps and kindles and downloads and stuff like that, don’t they? You’re not really a nerd, are you? Ok, I can accept that. Let’s talk about something else, then. I’m kind of in the mood to […]Read More: You’re not really a nerd, are you?
