 I’m just back from a weekend in the Big City. This picture does not do justice to the City or to the driving experience. However, any time the driving experience was exciting, I was avoiding looking at it. We started our weekend on Friday night with the symphony. #1 son liked the Haydn the best […]

I’m on #2 daughter’s laptop this morning, trying to be quiet and not wake anyone. When I wake in a strange place, I just want to get up and find a cup of tea, which I have been able to do, and then I can wait patiently for the other people, who never get up […]

You have to be impressed by the ability of the body to heal itself. I cut myself two weeks ago. It was one of those cuts that leaves a great big hole, but I closed it up with climbing tape, and it just grew back together like it was nothing. Wednesday night it seemed completely […]

Yesterday I was having stomach cramps. I whined about it to Chanthaboune, with whom I chat during the workday, but I decided to ignore it. I did lie down for a few minutes between work and my Wednesday evening marathon, and I told my husband I was going to die soon. This is a joke. […]

I heard about GTD (David Allen’s Getting Things Done system) on NPR on February 20th. I spent a couple of weeks getting into the habit of Ubiquitous Capture. I did the Processing and the Organization (though I still haven’t reorganized my planner to a perfect GTD state; I am trying out various paper and computer options […]

Over at Ozarque’s they’ve been having a discussion about men and women and “caregiving,” which seems to be defined to include housekeeping, caring for people directly (as in taking care of children or elderly relatives), and caring for people in the sense of sending birthday cards and remembering to call them. Central points include whether women […]

There is a new Knitty up, and a new Anti-Craft. I have no desire to make anything in either of them. You may wonder why, when I still have Erin on the needles, I would even be looking at other projects. The thing is, I have two prime knitting opportunities coming up, but both are […]

    My carrots cakes turned out to be very cute, though admittedly different from the professional ones in the book. I spent most of yesterday in the kitchen, but the kids went out in the evening and I read The Science of Discworld. I am enjoying it very much, since you ask. The premise […]

The Tenebrae service went well. My solo went well, this time without microphones. There were several comments about microphones yesterday, none of which seemed related to the entry. I think maybe they were about talking rather than singing. That’s okay, of course, but I was really surprised by the fact that the microphone stirred up […]

In yesterday’s performance, the tech guy did insist I use a microphone, and then asked me to back off. “You have such a strong voice,” he said, rather as though that were a problem. Well, yes, I do have a big voice. And we have good acoustics. It’s a church, not a park. I was […]
