happy & new

I have sparkling pinot noir and whiny kittens. We had sushi earlier and watched Baz Lurhmann’s Romeo & Juliet and now there is only a measly half an hour left of 2008. 2008 was a weird, tumultuous sort of year and I’m not entirely sure I liked it. It wasn’t that bad but it wasn’t […]

winter

We have lots of snow! Later I am going to bake cookies and then tomorrow is Yule and there will be presents and candles and solstice. Well, solstice first, since I think technically that’s at 7am my time. And then more cookies. And possibly martinis. Merry merry. With snow and joy and peace and all […]

oh, beloved puppycam

I have been addicted to the Shiba Inu puppy cam since it was first posted on Cute Overload in October. The puppies are going to be off to their respective new homes starting this weekend, and I shall miss them terribly. I am tempted to do nothing but watch puppycam until then, but I have […]

things you find when you’re not looking for anything

We went for a walk this morning because the weather is beautiful and the leaves are mostly fallen in piles of yellow and red and orange on the ground.

there will be time, there will be time

I have been meaning to post here for days and keep getting distracted. The time gets away from me, I get distracted by a hundred things. I wonder where the day went, and then the week. Tricksy time, going ever onward without stopping. Apologies. Here is a picture of birdies to make up for it. […]

reading pile, october 2008

I am mostly in a fog of edits and adjustments on the novel, trying to get it in the best shape possible before it goes off to a handful of very lovely beta readers next week. I’ve noticed I tend to read less when I’m busy with writing things, so I’m attempting to rectify that. […]

conveniently inconvenient

My refrigerator is broken. Yesterday while I was making my tea I happened to open the freezer (I don’t even remember what I was looking for, there wasn’t much in there other than frozen fruit and vanilla vodka) and discovered that my ice cube trays were full of water rather than ice. And the water […]

curiouser and curiouser

First blog posts are always difficult. This one is especially problematic since I’m not entirely sure what I want this blog to be just yet. At least it looks pretty. I have been blogging in various forms for several years, though this is my first WordPress endeavor and I am vaguely overwhelmed with shininess and […]
