I'm starting to come to terms with the fact that I need to slow down. At least a little. At least temporarily. The last two and a half months have been rough. Between deadlines and social/family obligations, I'm getting burnt out. I knew July and part of August would be bad. I was not expecting… Continue reading The Worst Kind of Busy
The last two weeks or so have been insanely busy. I'm not complaining, though. This is the kind of busy I like. Village season is in full swing. I made a new skirt for House Divided, our big Civil War reenactment (pictures...eventually. I have some really bad ones right now, but I'd like to get… Continue reading The Best Kind of Busy
I'm really glad the weather has turned. Really. Being able to see the sun and go out without a sweater is wonderful. My flip flops were feeling neglected, and I've got my eye on a new pair of ballet flats. I can wear skirts to the office without freezing from the waist down, even with… Continue reading Thanks, Ohio.
I'm back! We have officially moved into our new place. I'm still trying to find where I put everything (including my sanity), but we are moved, the cats are fine, and we made it to Cinici. Moving was...let's just say hell. Our truck got overbooked and had to be back 5 hours early. Then the… Continue reading GIVEAWAY! Also, chatter.

Lately I've been going through and cleaning up a few things around the blog. Mostly, this means fixing some tagging issues with older blog posts--like, the really, REALLY old stuff from the first year of this blog, back when it was still on Blogger and I was in college. It's been kind of fun going… Continue reading Blast from the Past
The last few weeks have gotten away from me. After being sick for over a month (bronchitis, my old friend, I did not miss you), we wrapped up October with a massive remodel--which has now stretched into November. In theory, all work is supposed to be done by the time I get home from work… Continue reading Wait, it’s November?
The Goals: Be active for 30 minutes 5x per week. This is getting nowhere. I need a new goal, because obviously, this one isn't working for me/accomplishing what I want. I do go for a 30 minute walk pretty much every day, but this just isn't working. Polish 3 manuscripts 1/3 complete! Pay off 2… Continue reading June Wrap Up
I'm finally getting some of my crafting energy back. Not sure what the trigger was--no, scratch that. I think I do. I was sick for part of last week and spent the better part of three days in bed with Netflix, watching When Calls the Heart, Great British Castles, and Raiders of the Lost Art--and… Continue reading Finished
This week has blown past at top speed. One minute, it was Monday and I was trying to drag myself out of bed, and then this morning I got to work and realized it was Friday. Even though I’ve been busy, this is one of those weeks where everything is in progress, and I don’t… Continue reading Whiplash
