So here’s the thing about knitting… Today, I neglected my house, my shopping, and even my job a little, to sit and watch television and knit. I was making a project for someone who had asked for it, and she had offered money. I refused. Because– I make money at my job. When I take… Read More

 So, my children, once upon a time, before Squish and Zoomboy, mommy lost her job because Big T cried so very much, and he and Daddy, Mommy and Chicken all ended up living on a stretch of property in the middle of nowhere. It looks very picturesque I know, but–yes. It’s cold in here. Yes,… Read More

Hey, all– Yes, we’re all a little grumpy and the work madness starts tomorrow. Chicken and her father leave tomorrow, and Mate is flying back up on the 29th.

Happy Solstice/Merry Christmas/Winter Holiday Madness HUZZAH!

So Mate and Chicken arrived last night– I greeted them with food and hugs and conversation– and Mate fell promptly asleep at nine o’clock.

Dog’s Hate Christmas

on December 22, 2015

It’s true. Dogs hate Christmas. I know my dogs are totally baffled. We went from walkies nearly every day to being ignored for most of the day. There is no sausage patty from McDonalds, strange shit has invaded our living room cage-match space, and at night, after the mandatory snuggling hour, there is this weird… Read More
