Not Really a Book Review, but a Rant

Yesterday, I admitted one of the books I was reading turned out to be a great, big, Did Not Finish. In fact, if I hadn’t been reading this one on a rather expensive electronic device, it would have been pitched across the room and straight into the trash. While...

Holiday Cheer

A friend shared this with me. I honestly cannot see either one of my cats sitting still for this — unless they were blissed out on...

And All My Sins Remembered…

So the husband and I exhausted ourselves at Disneyland yesterday, and when the park closed at six (they were doing a private party in the evening, so early closing), we headed over to California Adventure, which was open until nine. Our goal was to hit Soarin’...

Running Away to Play

The husband and I will be celebrating our anniversary in a week, so we’re taking the day to run away and play at Disneyland. We would have done it next Monday on the day itself, but the annual passes hit the Christmas blackout dates starting that day, so...

Quick Look: A Countess by Christmas

I’ve been determined to write up at least quick reviews or comments on the books I’ve read. For one thing, it’s going to help me keep track of what I am reading, especially since I’m trying to do a book a week. For another, since I’m...

Sunday Roundup

Status 100 words for 100 days: Am now at 11 days straight. It’s getting surprisingly easy to get the words done, which is good; writing regularly hasn’t been a habit for a while, so these baby steps are good for getting my feet back under me. Knitting:...

Cover Me, I’m Going In

The husband has an engagement this morning, so I’m going to pin my Aeolian Shawl out to be blocked. Considering it takes up half our bed in the unblocked stage, it will likely take up the entire thing for this process. So I need to get him out of the house, dunk...

Before Glee, There Was Blackpool

Yesterday, Lucy March wrote about the fact she’s on the verge of breaking up with Glee. I watched the show the first half of the first season, but didn’t pick it up again after the Christmas break. I love the concept, not just that it’s a glee club...

Simple Pleasures

The temperature is definitely dropping, even here in Southern California. We may joke about braving the sixty-degree winters, but Los Angeles does sit on the edge of a desert and the temperature drop at night can sometimes be quite severe. This means we curl up under...

Caro Kinkead

I'm a writer doing the "work a day job/write when I can/whip things into shape for submission/actually submit once in a while" dance between family responsibilities, finding time to read and adding to my knitting stash. In the meantime, I'm trying out some new things here and we're going to see what bubbles up.
