I’m not feeling well this morning. Probably allergies. Yesterday was a beautiful fall day, so I went outside and breathed, often a mistake for me. I got the grocery shopping done, though, and finished and sent a proposal for a website. I also cut out a nightgown of green silk, something I should have done […]

Since I had to get up at 4:00 a.m. this week I woke up at that time today, too, even though I could have slept in. The dogs also woke up early, and have been barking and carrying on ever since. I still have some work to do for the week, and had imagined that […]

I’m suffering from insomnia, which I sometimes do, so I thought I’d catch up over here. Sunday I went with La Bella, La Tenora, and Egypt to see Urinetown. It was very good, and thought provoking. Monday I wrote the website for the scientist; I’m expecting to make changes on that in the next day […]

I’ve enlisted my little toy friends to spread the lace out a bit so you can see it. No, I realize that you can’t see anything. Lace is like that. Here’s a conversation I had with #2 son, by text: “Can I bring some of my teammates to stay the weekend of Nov 6 and […]

The Habitat house was a fun experience, and it looks to be quite a nice house. I don’t think that I was very useful, actually. It took me 12-25 strokes to hammer in each nail, where I think it’s supposed to take about four. The woman I was working with was worse than me, and […]

Here you see the beginning of the Silk Fountain colw from Luxury Yarn One-Skein Wonders: 101 Small Indulgences. The pattern claims that it can be made from the quantity of yarn you see here. If so, I can make a whole wardrobe of these from lovely yarn I have around the house. The yarn here […]

In addition to the catalogs coming to my door (and may I say that copywriters at the Vermont Country Store, who have always been able to make underwear sound as utilitarian as frying pans, have now achieved the feat of making vibrators sound like a special medical thing for elderly people, like nose hair clippers?

Today I got to go to a lab and see an amazing machine involved in special military stuff. The Computer Guy came to the door to let me in and take me back to meet the scientist. We peppered her with questions  designed to winkle out the best keywords: “Could we say ‘RF and microwave’ […]

I was being snippy about 1980s hymns last week (and I don’t plan to take it back) but there were some good ones written in the 1990s. I really like this one, new to me as of yesterday, from 1994: Praise the Source of Faith and Learning, by Thomas Troeger Praise the source of faith […]
