flax-golden tales: seasonal technicality

seasonal technicality The equinox has come and gone but winter didn’t seem to pay it any mind. Perhaps it likes it here and wants to stay. An extended holiday. So there are no singing birds. No crocuses pushing up anxiously through the dirt. Not yet. The ground is still mostly frozen and boot-crunchy underneath the […]

bucket in spring

Today is Bucket’s birthday. She is seven years old. Normally she is an equinox baby, but this year the equinox was yesterday. Maybe that’s why she was so cranky about letting me take birthday photos. I tried. I did. She would not look at the camera no matter how I pleaded and waved things. I […]

flax-golden tales: fairy trap

fairy trap All you need to catch a fairy is an old birdhouse and some shiny stuff. You know, like glass and glitter, or pieces of colored plastic or metal things that’ll sparkle when the sun hits them. You can paint the birdhouse, but it doesn’t really matter what color. It’s not like how hummingbirds […]

more about cookies than LOST

The boy and I are LOST junkies, but you knew this. We have a little bit of a bet going this season, regarding the identity of a certain character’s ex-wife. This is the wager: If I’m right, I get the entire bag of Milanos. If I’m wrong, he gets the entire bag. Why Milanos, you […]

unplugged productivity & a kitty in the sunshine

Things I accomplished in my week of little-to-no internets, an unnumbered list. Finished knitting the huge, boa-esque scarf that I have been working on for ages. Photos forthcoming. Of course, now that it is finished it is too warm outside to wear it. I have lousy knitting karma. Read Shaun Tan’s Tales From Outer Suburbia […]

flax-golden tales: the oracle tower

the oracle tower The oracle tower sits in an otherwise empty field, a looming monolith of wood and metal and whatever else oracle towers are made from. It doesn’t move unless it’s being consulted, or it happens to be a particularly windy day. People come from all around to consult the oracle tower. For guidance […]

unplugging, sort of

I’m taking this week off from the internet. Mostly. I’ll be checking my e-mail but that’s about it. Originally I’d intended to do this in order to cocoon myself into the Revisionland Hotel and get large amounts of stuff done rather than little bits and pieces. Now I have the added bonus of also trying […]
