Interesting Times

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

It has been a crazy week with lots of ups and downs, and now the snow and sleet are coming down just to add to the excitement. #1 daughter and I had an exciting skype meeting, solidified our 2013 goals, and now need to get our strategies and tactics together. I work with some wonderful […]

2013 Goals

Sunday, January 6th, 2013

The Chevalier mittens begin to look like a dragon’s tail. #1 daugther’s birthday scarf is coming along, but I definitely will have trouble getting it finished in time. I need to spend more time knitting, I guess. We had our annual meeting yesterday, #1 daughter and I. We identified the areas we need to improve […]

Getting Out of Hand

Thursday, October 11th, 2012

We’re having our third quarter meeting tomorrow; admittedly, this is late, but things have gotten a little bit out of hand. This is evident from the picture of my desk. Actually, they’re getting back in hand now– hence the meeting. I wish I had made good notes at our Q2 meeting. I know that the […]

Present Two: Blue Sky Alpaca Needles

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

My next present — well, I bought these, so it’s not a present, unless it can be a present from myself to me — was a couple of sets of dpns from Blue Sky Alpaca. I rarely use straight needles. Circular neeedles work perfectly well for flat knitting, and you don’t have the problems of […]

Everyone is Awesome!

Saturday, September 22nd, 2012

Here is the completed Southern Snowfall scarf made from Folk Center handspun, all tied up. It is narrow enough that tying it up a bit seems like a good thing to do. It’s still too hot to wear it. This has not kept me from beginning another scarf. This one is Henry, a manly herringbone […]

Gentleman Mathematicians

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

I did get around to cleaning my living room, though I forgot to post an After picture. Things have been going very well at work. Our team is great — we’ve added several new people, and it’s going very well. I’m still very busy, but I can tell it’s a good team and we’re feeling […]

New Leads

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

We have a lot of things in the pipeline. Somehow this always makes me think of oil pipelines, or the pipes that carry grape juice at the winery. Since the things we have in the pipeline include news sites, a sort of talent agency for athletes, a service for lawyers, a bed and breakfast, and […]

CRM Software

Sunday, February 5th, 2012

My whiteboard is getting fuller, but my office is still tidy and pleasant to work in, so I have no complaints. We’re trying to streamline our systems so we can get more work done in the same amount of time. The rest of the house is not tidy, and we’re filming an intereview here tomorrow, […]

The Office

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

My office is a work in progress, but I think it’s becoming more pleasant. Things got out of hand while #2 son was living in this room over his semester break, frankly, but I spent several hours yesterday cleaning out files, picking stuff up off the floor, removing stray socks, and otherwise getting things in […]


Sunday, August 28th, 2011

I felt rebellious yesterday. I knew I ought to work, but I didn’t feel like it, so I didn’t. My husband will be coming home today from the fleshpots of Las Vegas (I bet they really have fleshpots there, whatever fleshpots are), so yesterday was, in addition to being Saturday, probably the last perfect opportunity […]
