  • Confession…..

    Confession…..

    I never watched the original Sex and the City. Several reasons, the main one being that when they were originally, on, I didn’t have HBO. Heck, we barely had cable. The second reason was that I was a twenty-six-year-old mom with a four-year-old, in the middle of Central Louisiana, far from the bright lights of…

  • Happy New Year I’ve been knitting!

    Happy New Year I’ve been knitting!

    Happy New Year! I know we say this every year, but I can’t believe that the last year flew by. I had lots of personal changes, all good in 2022, which is definitely an improvement from the previous three years. I’ve also picked up my knitting needles again, and knitted this lovely wrap for my…

    Weekending

    Last week was Homecoming Week at work,which was a sad state of affairs given all the measures that we have had to use this year in order to be able to even be in school. One thing that has remained constant are the War Drums that are played from 7:30 am until kickoff at 7:30…

  • Tis the season! It’s that time of year when both Blogmas and Vlogmas start popping up in feeds all over the internet. It’s been years since I’ve participated and frankly, the thought of 25 days of holiday blogging is daunting. One, because I’m not one to overdo Christmas anything and two, well, it’s a lot…

  • A Night with Amy Tangerine

    Let’s get this out of the way. I am a MAJOR fan of Amy Tan of Amy Tangerine fame.  I love her spirit, her quirkiness and her ability to make me want to get out of my rut and craft something. When I heard that she was going to be at Whim So Doodle in…

  • We’ll see how this goes.

    Twelve years ago, this blog started out as a knitting blog. Over the years I’ve developed other hobbies, but  I’ve continued to knit. I also went through a phase where I listened to podcasts, then I stopped, but within the last year started up again.  One of the reasons is because I got a new…

  • Daily Life

    For the last year or so, I have had and on and off love affair with my Midori notebooks. Some months, I am pretty good about journaling in them, and then others, well, not so much.  This year, one of my goals has been to print and preserve photos. Well, I’ve managed to print a…
