Oh, good grief

I haven’t blogged in two days, but I’ve thought about it. And now that I finally have some down time, I can’t seem to stop watching TV. I watched my usual Friday night episode of Stargate: Atlantis, and then I should have turned off the television and started writing, but I didn’t. And now, we’re […]

It must be spring.  My thoughts have turned to nature and fabric.  I’m thinking about dogwood blossoms, skirt-making, and cheery colors this week.  The windows are open wide today, and I’m in my favorite living room chair, typing and enjoying the breeze in the hour I have left before preschool pickup.
