Friendsgiving

R and her husband are here for Friendsgiving. We have played the requisite Drawful, and have just finished cramming food in assorted faces. Z did a fantastic job as usual, and I definitely ate too much. I’ll find room for a pie though hopefully, since R made and brought one with her. *says goodbye* So yeah, a good day, as… Read more »

Sock Party!

Yes, I finished the pair I was on. Which means that I have, of course, already picked another pattern and caked up the next skein of wool to get the next pair started, hee hee. I’m slightly annoyed because these came up a tiny bit bigger than my other pairs, so not quite as snug. The fit is still more… Read more »

I have said in the past of our love of all things stationary. So needing to replace our old shredder was a thing of happy rather than a pain in the ass. I was also pleasantly surprised that we were able to find a better replacement for, I’m pretty sure, less than the outgoing one costs my in-laws 5+ years… Read more »

Even though we have a foot-powered can press, I’ve fallen out of habit of using it. Call me old, but the bending and the up and down were wearing on me.

((of course, referring to the most excellent Death Cab for Cutie song)) But yes, willingly went out of doors. I had an idea of what I wanted for lunch, but I had neither Italian dressing, or the white vinegar to try and make my own. So I went to the Post Office… which had neither. But at least it was… Read more »

Progress Shot

La, there is a sock. And a half. I’m making good progress on my row goal for the day, and will probably exceed it, considering that it’s several hours earlier than I thought it was. I’m not sure I’ll ever get used to how early it gets dark in the autumn/winter, even if I am mainly okay with. For example,… Read more »

Ready to Party

One of Smaller’s classmates had a birthday party today, so this was prepping the card. She drew a little picture of a person with, I think, a magic wand, and then finished up with her signature. She’s been able to sign her name for ages now, but it’s finally starting to look like a signature rather than an abstract shape…. Read more »
