My scary office

I work from home. I also have my own computer, a couple printers (including a laser printer I got because I did a lot of printing in my last job and I wanted duplex capabilities). And the router, a dual-line phone, lots of pens, papers, a big screen (saves me when I have to work […]

Another back in time post…

I’m still playing catch up. So in January I went to a retreat. Not just any retreat….a fiber retreat. In all its fibery goodness. There were a mixture of attendees, the common thread (get it? I slay myself) being that we all love fibers in one form or another. Now I’m the queen of […]

Celebration, Pain, and Connection

If you’ve been reading along, you know that my father-in-law passed away a couple weeks ago and was buried on March 14. What I didn’t write about was the fact that my sister-in-law’s birthday was March 15. We were gathering at my father-in-law’s home on the 12th to take care of business, do […]

RIP Donald Fearn, Sr.

All my bags are packed….

Leave a little for the birds!

Just after reading Pharmaknits’ blog, I walked upstairs and looked out the kitchen window. We have an active (and well fed) battalion of marauders squirrels in our back yard. No cake of suet is safe, and it took a couple tries before we found a bird feeder that could keep them from eating all the […]

Morning Visitor

Oh look! I had a visitor this morning. As I was just starting down the stairs to my office, open laptop in one hand, coffee carafe and cup in the other, I spotted something in the tree. I gently backed into the kitchen and tried to remember where my camera was…In my office, of course. […]

Alright, alright already!

Last Wednesday, I was having a bad day.  A really bad day.  There’s a lot of stuff going on these days that creates a certain degree of stress.  Not all stress is bad stress, but even good stress can be overdone!  And the combination of too much of  both, coupled […]
