I’m probably going to cross-post this one, because it’s chock full of news! First of all– woo woo!  I finished my Nano Project.  Not just reached the word limit, but finished the project–and that’s exciting.  The book is called Bolt Hole, and I tackled an African American protagonist in this one, and I love him… Read More

Stanley’s Hat!

on November 25, 2012

Okay, so I’m starting to realize that I knit like I cook. I have a few staples, a few things I do really well, and although I’m capable of reading a recipe, atm, my time and circumstance just does not lend itself to that much fanciness, which is a shame, because I’ve done some bitchin’… Read More

 Forgive me– I’m crossposting like a fiend here– I’ve gotten enough e-mail about these things to want to address them in every blog/website I can:-)  You’ll find this posted in my website both on the front page and in the news page, so it will be accessible for a while:-) I’ve been getting a lot… Read More

A brief prayer of gratitude

So last week at soccer, there was an accident with the supply wagon when Mate was manning the snackbar, and we had a little of this: Now don’t get too upset, folks– she’s fine.  She had a black eye and a scrape across the chest, but all in all, I was looking forward to the… Read More

So it’s our birthday…

on November 16, 2012

It was Zoomboy’s birthday yesterday.  We did many things. We brought cookies to school and then brought home empty boxes afterwards. We went to three different places to find him a fish (which sucked, because I thought ALL places had fish and apparently there was a fish SHORTAGE at the one place where we go… Read More

A Knitter in His Natural Habitat

on November 13, 2012

The Winter Courtship Rituals of Fur-Bearing Critters.  Okay, back last December, I released a cute little novella about an alpaca rancher named Rance Crawford, and his sudden infatuation with his new neighbor, Ben.  I was rather proud of that sweet little story, and everyone was taken by not only Rance and Ben, but by the secondary… Read More

Ukus are the Suckus!

on November 11, 2012

Okay… the last two days… where to begin, where to begin, where to begin… Let’s start in a school bathroom. Wait, no. Let’s start before that. Let’s start Thursday morning, as I was running around, tripping over laundry, thinking about laundry that needed to be done, looking at the giant pile next to my bed… Read More

The Race for the Rowboat is Over!

on November 7, 2012

Can I have my television back?  Please? I mean, I’m awfully glad that my guys won and all (right down to our local representatives, which was sort of cool because THAT election came down to 200 votes.  It was like, “Hooray!  My vote really DID count!”) But seriously– me and politics, not so much of… Read More
