Yeah, That’ll Do

      No Comments on Yeah, That’ll Do

Okay, I really like this picture I just took. I’m thinking — new Facebook profile picture? I love the last one I took, but it was with transitory glasses, so isn’t an accurate reflection of the actual now-me. But I don’t like changing my pictures that often either because it gets *really* annoying when people change their pictures all the… Read more »

One Pain or Another

      No Comments on One Pain or Another

Today has been an annoyingly ouchy day. General pain aside, I got slammed with a brutal headache earlier. I’m pretty sure it was trying to head towards a migraine, but extra caffeine + codeine seems to have beaten it to the pass. So of course, while I’m celebrating that, I start cramping out of nowhere… sigh. At least being in… Read more »

Love is Mint

      No Comments on Love is Mint

There’s a certain sort of mint Turkish delight that my in-laws like, and one that’s somewhat difficult to get any of it due to how quickly it sells out in their candy shop of preference. They’d sent me a box via Z a few days ago, which made me smile. It also made me quip that it was the time… Read more »

Today’s planned outing was to go wander around the grocery store, in part to acquire needed staples like biscuits (cookies). In short, it was an excuse to get the girls out of the house for a little bit, ha ha. I took this picture of Littler while we were waiting for Z and Smallhausen to finish checking out. As usual,… Read more »

My Needles Are Still Too Big

      2 Comments on My Needles Are Still Too Big

So, my straight needles are 40cm (just under 16 inches). I somehow managed to make do with them last night… but not so much here at home. They kept getting in the way, so I switched to my circular… which is 100cm long. It’s slightly less ludicrous on some ways, and more ludicrous in others. I went ahead and put… Read more »

My Needles Are Too Big

      No Comments on My Needles Are Too Big

Like, absolutely too big — they’re 40cm long. But it’s either that, or use a fixed 100cm circular (tempting at this point), or normal sized bamboo needles (much less tempting). Of course, it doesn’t matter when in seconds I’m going to be cramming it into my bag and running for the hills, ha ha. Time is sneaking away from me… Read more »

Whee

      No Comments on Whee

Let’s see, what did I do today: Got all the work caught up. Took care of childling, singular. Baked more cinnamon rolls. Some of the knitting. Getting childlings (plural) into bed before eight, le gasp. In short, I’m feeling fairly productive. Or at least, like I have been. I’ve slammed into the slug wall, and am taking advantage of having… Read more »
