Too busy!

So when I was cleaning up and changing themes last week, I was thinking…hey, summer life can’t get much busier. I CAN find time to blog!

And then it was the fourth, and then Lilia enrolled in a local kids theater and is in a production of the Wizard of Oz. And the husband is […]

New Domain!

I decided to get my own domain, just because…well I really have no reason. It’s the cool thing to do!

Not really, but I wanted my own domain and hosting, and here we are.  So things are slowly being transferred from the old site to the new.  I’m sure I did this the hard way, […]

Blessed Be

Happy Halloween, and Blessed Samhain.

The end of summer (aka, I’ve been MIA again)

It’s been awhile.  This summer feels a bit like it flew by.  Where I thought I might be ready to blog again, it turned out I wasn’t.  I won’t say I was depressed so much as I was simply grieving and letting myself go through that process.  Instead of writing and dwelling, I got “out” […]

Spring Summer

I love the smell of rain.  We skipped ahead a little to summer, and May brought little rain thus far.  We are getting some much needed rain today, and that on top of the cooler temps feels really good.

Things sort of faded away with some of the chaos that came in my life.  On […]

Spring time

It’s so nice to have the weather be warm and sunny again.  While cleaning out my garden beds isn’t exactly fun, there is a zen like quality to it.  It’s hard to focus on anything other than the task at hand, which is really nice, particularly when there’s a lot on your mind.

Half […]

‘Nuff said

If I wasn’t excited about FFXIV: Heavensward before (I was…), I certainly am now.  I’ve been bouncing around since watching the opening video, and June cannot get here soon enough.

So really, all there is to do now is share the video.  But be warned.  There are some SERIOUS spoilers regarding the end of the […]

Musical fun times

Ah, it’s so good to have my two older kids back at school.  It’s back to quieter mornings, just mom and Mei.

My kids are really into “Teen Titans, go!” at the moment.  It think it’s a kid thing, because I recall my sister doing the same, and I probably did as well, but man…kids […]

Hook happenings.

Tamara’s Kismet- my first square

Starburst Square- really loved this one

I haven’t worked much on the CAL for this week.  Well, technically, I have.  It’s a square made up of four mini squares, sewn together, and I completed two of them.  But, they are too large, and I am not happy with […]

It begins again…

The first of our crocuses.

Mother nature is angry.  Last week we went from the 20’s to the 60’s and then back down again.  We had two “warm” days, and I managed to get at least one day of garden clean up in.  It’s ugly.  Really ugly.  I had to buy mud boots ugly. […]
