21st Century Skills

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

Here’s one of the products I’m working with. Lucky me, eh? I’ve also got a llama farm to make a website for, and that ought to be a lot of fun. Other new jobs yesterday included a writing assignment for oDesk marketing; that was an audition, really, where they’ll compare my work with that of […]

Here are the gargantuan, floppy, not-yet-felted slippers. I got these finished up yesterday, and made cookies to donate to the AAUW’s Gridiron Show, and  put two casseroles in the freezer, and took the smaller dog for a walk. Much of this knitting took place while I watched Leverage. I’m enjoying this program a lot. The […]

A Domestic Day

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

Yesterday was a lovely day. I wrote a website and fielded some correspondence, but otherwise had a domestic day. I bought a size 13 circular needle, since really big dpns were not to be had at the big box craft store and the LYS is down in the thick of the biker festival.I had actually […]

Crafts Report

Saturday, September 26th, 2009

I got up at 4:11 today, since my husband had to go in to work early, but I went back to sleep and didn’t get up again till 7:24. This means that I feel groggy, but I hope that I’ll end up more rested than if I had stayed up and worked. I do have […]

Bathing the Dog

Friday, September 25th, 2009

Last night we bathed our big dog. The dogs have been having a rough time lately anyway, since we have been descended upon by bikers and they roar up and down the street at all hours even though we live on a dead-end road and there is nowhere for them to go. The dogs spend […]

Interviewing a Billionaire

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

I’ve lost (or completed) three Dark Art Clients this month. This isn’t a bad thing at all, for a variety of reasons, but it did make me think I might need new jobs. Fortunately, I have a new website to write for a new agency client, and have also been asked to interview with an […]

In God’s Image

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

My new Tuesday class isn’t much on deep discussions. We had the question, “What does it mean to say we’re made in God’s image?” in our materials, and I tried to explore the question of what conclusions we could draw about God’s image from current evidence, and the other ladies clearly thought I was crazy […]

Digital Studio

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

This not terribly enthralling video is what I made with my new toy, Corel Digital Studio 2010.  I notice that xanga cut off the last couple of seconds, so that I say “That’s all there is” rather than “That’s all there is to it.” You can also make fancy things with titles and music, and […]


Monday, September 21st, 2009

The cat, Nadia, was very relaxed yesterday. I wasn’t quite that relaxed, but very nearly. I cleaned the living room (though I didn’t succeed in getting my menfolks to help me move the office furniture out of there), made a nice spinach and mushroom quiche, bought a new vacuum cleaner (amazing sale at Target), and […]
