Week Two

      No Comments on Week Two

I realised this morning that it’s the second week of summer break. With everyone home last week, I’d sort of forgotten we were on summer break somehow. Not that it mattered much — Z went to work, and the girls and I hung out here doing our own things. It mainly went well, and I even got the girls to… Read more »

Turn It Around

      No Comments on Turn It Around

So yeah, I had to pull out my knitting yesterday and start over. I’ve been busting hump on it today, and I’m about halfway through making up what I had to undo. My arms feel a combination of beefy and sore from wrasslin’ with chunky wool, but I’m (knock on wood) not doing myself too bad a damage. It’s hard… Read more »

Starting Over

      No Comments on Starting Over

I was working on my knitting earlier. It had reached the length that it was supposed to be. I had done the math for the start of the next section. I went to switch to the larger needles… and I’d been using them the whole time. Whups. So I had to pull back all my progress, re-cake my wool, and… Read more »

The Best Things in Life (are Free)

      No Comments on The Best Things in Life (are Free)

In this case, a free dinner compliments of Z’s father. He likes to hit up the chippy on a Friday, and he’s taken to calling us every now and again and seeing if we want some. Hrm, yes please! I’d commented to Z that it was sweet that his parents try to go out of their way to feed us… Read more »

Moon Power

      No Comments on Moon Power

For my sins, I have never given any iteration of Sailor Moon a fair shake. I saw the first episode when I was a kid and didn’t know it was the first episode, so I was super put off by Usagi sitting down and crying until someone helped her. I should probably go back and watch it because it’s probably… Read more »

Give a Hoot

      No Comments on Give a Hoot

Yes yes, I know, again with the terrible jokes. This is a section of my other, less used purse. I love it, but it needed surgery to be appropriately useful. Thankfully, said surgery was completed in the last couple of day, so I think I’ll switch my stuff over to it for a bit and let it be my primary…. Read more »

Floor Below, Fan Above

      No Comments on Floor Below, Fan Above

One of the big things we had to do before moving into this house was get the entire house rewired. It hadn’t been updated since the house had been constructed in the 1960s, and well. We’re a tech-heavy family, and need more than a plug a floor. It also meant that we were able to pick some new light fixtures,… Read more »

The Bookshelf Less Seen

      No Comments on The Bookshelf Less Seen

There are two bookshelves in our lounge. There is a third in the foyer by the front door. Since I’m not usually standing or sitting near it, I figure I’d take a picture to show off its assorted contents and clutter. I direly need to pull out all the bookshelves and re-re-resort them. I also am thinking that the glass-fronted… Read more »

After a bit of fiddling to make hair and tail occur on my unicorn, I declared her completely done this morning. I had to stop knitting because my back and shoulders started aching. They’ve been really crappy all day, even with pain meds thrown at them. Knitting in chunky tends to bother it more than most other knitting, so I’ve… Read more »

Nearly There

      No Comments on Nearly There

I’ve been slowly plugging at my sewing all day, and the unicorn is nearly done. I just have to sew in the blue star (which ended up looking more like a flower), and then start threading the hair and mane in. I don’t know how tedious that may or may not be, but I guess I will see when I… Read more »
