(*I didn't intend those words to all start with "p", but it amuses me, so I'm leaving… Continue reading Happy New Year!
Just a bit of a random post today. I was feeling nostalgic, so I looked up several knit-bloggers I used to follow, and most of them are gone. Some have announced a move to posting on Instagram or some other social media platform, but many have just vanished. It makes you think. Ten years ago,… Continue reading Sunday Musings
It's been a while since I had a post about smartphone apps, so let's have another, shall we? First off, I have to start off by saying that we are an Apple family here, so I don't have any apps on my list which aren't on Apple's list. Hopefully there is some Android cross-over for… Continue reading Misc Monday ~ in which we talk about apps
Yup, you read the title right. No pictures. I don't blame you if you want to stop right there and leave since there will be nothing to look at but words. I have been knitting, though not a ton. Mostly on the second lace cowl (the one with the beads). I still love that pattern… Continue reading WIP Weds ~ in which there are no pictures
I did something this weekend which I have been wanting to do for a while: I donated blood. No big deal, right? Yay me. But, it got me thinking. (Part of the reason for the thinking was some of the paperwork & promotional material they had on hand at the donation site.) Why had I… Continue reading Misc Monday ~ in which I become one of the 3%
It seems today is my WordPress Anniversary. I have been blogging here for 10 years. Hard to believe, isn't it? TEN years. That's a long time. (This isn't really my Blogiversary, though. I don't remember when that is anymore. I started blogging on Blogger quite a long time ago and switched to here 10 years ago.… Continue reading Anniversary

I love so many aspects of it, but adding pictures that I don't upload to WP has gotten increasingly difficult and stupid. I really don't like the hoops they are making jump through. Between what WP allows me to do (this… Continue reading WordPress Woes
Wow. Can we just pretend this last week never happened? I mean, as far as the Round of Words goes. Because really, it was a great week. Don't get me wrong. I had a lot of fun. But it seems like most of the ROW80 stuff slid by the wayside, and was either not done,… Continue reading A Round Of Words ~ Let’s Pretend This Never Happened
I'd like to wish a very merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate, and Happy Holidays to those of you who celebrate another holiday. There are so many at this time of year, and they all focus on peace and goodwill... AND PRESENTS! 🙂 Yeah, okay, so maybe that last isn't part of the… Continue reading Christmas Surprises!
Have you ever seen those toy helicopters in the mall? The small remote-controlled ones that look like so much fun to play with? Well, they *are* fun. But cats don't like them much. (And that means they make a great cat-deterrent for things like protecting flower arrangements from getting chewed on.)
