Chop wood, carry water

It didn’t rain this weekend! At all! I celebrated by committing mayhem with the pruning shears. and also the other side of the house, and started the semi-annual ivy removal project. Can you tell? No really, that’s an “after” – I took all three photos at the same time. Now it looks like an ordinarily […]

Three-hour tour

I was so on the ball: I got the photos from Peters Valley Craft Center posted to Flickr the day after I got back. The accompanying text? Not so much. Peters Valley Craft Center is gorgeous, out in the woods in the Delaware Water Gap. Most or all of the former village of Bevans has […]

Pack all the things

And I have: Tablets, yarn, tools and equipment of all descriptions, plus a goodly pile of books. I’m off to the Peters Valley Craft Center tonight to get ready for my class tomorrow. Everything came together quite well, I think, despite the short notice. Linda Hendrickson’s help was invaluable, especially her rapid shipping of a […]


That was an earthquake! No, really. Twitter tells me it was felt all over the east, very nearly, and into Ohio, including right here in my very own office. There were three separate but close together rumbles in my upstairs office. Nick and the critters completely missed it: so much for the earthquake predicting powers […]

Photos! On Thursday!

And they’re even this week’s! The list: Bug Feet Seasonal chore Multicolored Time They all came from work, taken in between interminable and frustrating sessions of banging my head on the keyboard. Resolved now, I think, but several days of agony were involved. Bug: Tamie’s screenbug, possibly the best thing I’ve gotten her for cat-sitting. […]

Ply-splitting and tablet weaving

Got some spare time at the end of August? Want to spend that time playing with string? I’ve got just the thing! I will be filling in for Linda Hendrickson as the instructor of a five-day ply-split and tablet weaving workshop at Peters Valley Craft Center. It will be awesome, and there’s still time to […]

Right then

Thursday photos? We got those. More than I’ve been able to upload, as my home internet has been wonky for weeks, and I’ve been far too busy at work to sneak in a few minutes of photo uploading there. But the home internet seems to be functioning today, and I got the photos uploaded. I’m […]

Bad blogger, no biscuit

Look! Over there! A Viking! The Saga Of Biorn from The Animation Workshop on Vimeo.

Computer woes

I have a netbook, and it goes everywhere with me (nearly; the Nook Color is much smaller and has superseded it for some excursions). It’s in the kitchen a lot, for looking up recipes, playing music, chatting while I cook. I’ve gotten flour in it, chocolate, all sorts of things, but it’s a robust little […]

The rest of the story

Besides yesterday’s sugar-laden photo opportunity, I took a complete set of more usual scavenger-hunt photos, and I’m even posting them less than a day later. (See everyone’s results.) Squares Shadow I was hoping to spot something more interesting, but at least it wasn’t raining this Thursday as it has for the past couple weeks. Teenager […]
