(title thanks to the Handsome Furs) The apartment is clean, and I think I am ready for the new year. 2013 was ram-packed full of *stuff* Four library conferences. Three sweaters (you'll see the other two in a teensy bit). One ginormous blanket. My first Coachella. KITTENS More time with Melba, the best puppy in … Continue reading Here Comes the Future
Hello again everyone! Analog week is over, and I'm back. Normally, I'm not into stunts or fasts or tests of endurance, but going analog for a week was pretty awesome. I didn't go 100% analog: there was a day where I went online to apply for a job whose deadline was within analog week, and … Continue reading Back Online
School's out, the job has ended, the thermometer's rising, and I'm taking a week off. I'll be taking a vacation from blogging, too. Don't worry, though, I'll be back before you know it 😉 Have a great week, everyone!

So I'm trying a rawther novel approach: instead of writing about knitting, I am actually going to knit. It's so crazy, it might work. I am also making kale chips. Kale is inexpensive … Continue reading A New Tactic
Inexplicably, it's November. I'm off to a bit of a rough start, beginning with a lack of coffee in my kitchen, but things are as clear and dry as usual here in Phoenix. Good thoughts to everyone back east--may you November end much, much better than it started.
I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, I swear. I've been doing some undercover crafting for a very special someone's birthday. Big reveal after the gift has been received!
There are days where I'm busy, but just busy enough to stay focused. There are other days where I'm busy, but so busy that no matter what I do, I can't achieve any sort of accomplishment because there's so much to do I can't diminish the towering pile of things to be done. Today would … Continue reading Wanted: One Empty Day
