So, I finished Oscar Wilde’s THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY this week. (On a side note, I was shocked to see how few books I’ve read this year. You’d think I was busy doing other things, or something. My guy offered to spend less time distracting me so I could read more, but – lovely… Continue reading Friday Reads ~ The Picture of Dorian Gray
Oops. Today's post is a bit late, and very brief. But... I can't resist new yarn.
1. Weather seems to have been universally weird so far this year. Or at least this spring. I have friends telling me they’re being flooded, other area are getting lots of more dramatic weather than is normal (tornadoes, I’m looking at you – though thankfully not ACTUALLY looking at you, out here in California), and… Continue reading Making Monday Good
Summer is nearing, though you’d never be able to tell based on the weather California has been having lately. However, it’s mid-May, and time to start thinking about vacation reading. Some people do a lot of their reading on the beach (or other vacation spots) if marketing is to be believed. You’ll find displays of… Continue reading Life’s a Beach
So here we are at another WiP Weds, and I have two projects to show you that I've shown you before. One of them, at least, won't be seen much longer, because it's pretty darn close to being finished! The Swan Maiden Qiviuk Mitts are just about done. All I have left is a few… Continue reading WiP Weds ~ 5.18.11
I like my M-W-F blog posting schedule. But I haven't had much to say about writing these days, and Monday was set aside for writing posts. This makes Monday content pretty boring. Unless I write random posts on Mondays, instead. Like this one. Bulleted and numbered posts are hard to write on WP mobile. But… Continue reading Monday Musings
Hi there blog readers! I have a question for you: what’s your take on the classics? I mean classic novels. The kind you read in High School (and/or college) English class and have to write essays about. The Great Gatsby. Frankenstein. To Kill a Mockingbird. War and Peace. Shakespeare. Dickens. Austen. Steinbeck. Have you read… Continue reading Classical
WiP Weds For today’s WiP Weds post, I want to do something different. I want to focus on ONE project, rather than everything I have on the needles. Or on the hook, as in the case of today’s project: The Babette Blanket. I really like this blanket. I like the variety it provides: even though… Continue reading WiP Weds 5.11.11
Well, I haven’t been doing book reviews as often as I wanted to at the start of this year, but at least I’ve been talking books on the blog more than I used to. However, I still want to do reviews. What’s that? Today’s a good day for a book review, you say? Okay, sounds… Continue reading Friday Reads 5.6.11 ~ Review Time!
But that’s okay. Sometimes life gets wonky on us. I certainly hadn’t planned on sleeping late this morning, nor on traffic being heavier than expected. I had planned a blog post, already written, just waiting on WiP pictures. And then I didn’t take the pictures last night (deciding to wait for this morning’s sun) so… Continue reading Not What I Had Planned
