on working and technology

After almost a month of questionable network connectivity and trying everything we could think of to fix it, our Time Capsule (Apple wireless base station/backup device) was declared dead at the Apple Store yesterday. They gave us a new one. The network is now much, much happier and back to being quick like a bunny, […]

books & links

I am in more of a reading mode than a writing mode lately, though I am attempting to switch back and forth. Reading often puts me in a writing mood, which is helpful. This is my current reading pile, more or less. I have some random nonfiction things floating around but this is the fiction […]

equinox

It’s cold outside, but we bought flowers to make the inside more springy. This little potted ranunculus that’s now living in a blue glass goblet, and some snapdragons. I have Cadbury Mini-Eggs, the true sign of spring. And I’m having computer network issues that I am ignoring in favor of chocolate & flowers & springtime.

someday i will tell the tale of why her name is bucket*

A few days ago I got some firmware upgrade for our Airport/TimeCapsule and my internet went from happy to grumpy and slow. Just figured out how to downgrade the firmware and my internet is back to happy. Still not sure exactly what went wrong, mostly just glad to have pages loading at something other than […]

i *heart* friday the 13ths

Two Friday the 13ths in a row! They are one of my favorite types of day. I got married on a Friday the 13th, which probably adds to the fondness, but I liked them before that, too. I’m wearing BPAL‘s latest 13 blend today, too. A sweet, comforting base of dark chocolate and brown sugar […]

I sometimes have difficulty explaining the tone of my fictional circus. It’s not a traditional circus. It’s not clowns and elephants. It’s stuff like this. I love that there are people […]

knitting & tea & editing

I am not much of a knitter. I like the actual rhythm of knitting, I love pretty yarn. But I don’t absorb patterns well, so anything that requires a chart is usually too much for me. Also, I’m a slow knitter. I’ve been working on the same scarf for the boy for about a year. […]

on boston and watchmen

The boy had Friday off from work so we took the train into Boston to see Watchmen and go out to lunch. It was still snowy but not terribly cold, which was nice. (Yesterday was downright tropical. 60 whole degrees!) I’d been eagerly anticipating Watchmen for awhile. Not nearly as long as most people who […]

in memoriam

Had a lovely day today which I will post about at length over the weekend. But my mom called tonight to say that Lucy, who has been the family cat since my junior year of college, died today. She was all white so she was easy to spot when she would sneak into the backyard […]

finished bunnies & suggestions welcome

The Phantomwise Tarot 10s are done, remarkably ahead of schedule. You can see the set in the tarot minors gallery on phantomwise.com or over here on my art-based LiveJournal. Someday I might combine that blog with this one. Today is not that day. Here are the finished bunnies, in bookish tea party glory: I kind […]
