The world outside is hard and disappointing

So, I didn’t blog yesterday because my RA has flared up and I couldn’t get out of bed all day.  I think it’s the cold weather.

I told you I would tell you about my experience with the Writers Meet Up that I attended on Thursday night.  Well… it was a great disappointment.  Read the rest of this entry »

I did a Scooby…

Today I have updated my other blog, the one dealing with book reviews, and I have shamelessly begged through email and Twitter for readership.  I figure it’s like that silly method of testing if spaghetti is done or not; you throw a few strands to the wall and if they stick they are done and if they fall they still need more cooking.  Well, I figure that I would do the same with my blogs.  I would throw out links and beg and cajole (well, not really, but it feels that way), and then I would see if they stick or not.  If not, then I figure my blog is still very “raw” and then if they stick, then I figure they are actually interested on what I may have to talk about.   It is a very humbling endeavor.  I can imagine how tough it is for an author to submit manuscripts to agents and publishing houses.  It must be really emotionally exhausting to receive a rejection or to have your book shelved as “something good but without the market for it at the moment”.

A Quiet Day

Today I dedicated myself to updating my event and social calendars.  I am not a social butterfly, but I have decided to get away from the computer and out into the real world more often, so I went onto Meet Up and looked for things going on around my area.  I found a few events that interest me and I will be talking about them as the week progresses (if I have time).  School starts next week and although my calendar won’t be as busy as last semester’s calendar I will be dedicating my free time to volunteering with Nourish International, and I still will pursue my voice and piano lessons so I will be an extremely busy and happy bee.

Getting Back on the Saddle


After quite a few months of inactivity, well, at least on the blog side of things, I have decided to once again try my hand at keeping up with this blog.

While I was away, I was involved in a few projects, some of which I have finished, some that are still waiting for me to complete them.  An example being my Leaf Pattern Scarf.

It took a few weeks to finish.  I finally got it blocked and ready to go a few days ago.  I got the pattern for it from 60 Quick Knits in Cascade 220. Read the rest of this entry »
