NZ day 1: Customs let us into the country! And we stayed awake *all day* despite jet lag & a crappy night of sleep sitting up in a plane. I'm jet lagged and basically cribbing this post from a Facebook update. If you're not into words, scroll down for today's meager pics. Our generous hosts … Continue reading NZ Day 1
First of all, I want to apologize for falling behind in reading everyone's blog; I feel like we have an unspoken agreement by following each other and I'm not holding up my end. I hope to get back in the swing of things next year. Next year!?!? Yes. I've mentioned before that we're going to … Continue reading Vacation and Possible Blogcation
Yes, I think I'm funny, and no, I know I'm not the first person to make this joke, but I can't help it - it's too deliciously punny to pass up. Have a great Friday and an adventurous but flying-monkey-free weekend!
This week marked the end of both season 2 of Indian Summers and season 1 of The Durrels in Corfu on Masterpiece Theater (PBS in the States). There were no surprises with either show; they both ended in a predictable happy and satisfying, though unrealistic, way. I won't say more so I don't give away any … Continue reading While I was knitting …
I got to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them! And it was great! One of those movies that I wouldn't mind seeing again while it's in theaters. And also one of those movies that I didn't knit during, mostly because I finished Henry's hat and didn't want to work on the Green Wood cardi … Continue reading While I was knitting …
Follow Gemma Correll on Instagram: you won't regret it. She's a very funny, sometimes serious cartoonist and artist. She has a website, she's on Twitter, she has a blog (or two!), she's got books out (that I need to investigate), she's even on GoComics, but she appears to post most often on Instagram. Check her out!
This week, I watched all of The Crown while I was knitting. I didn't mean to watch it all in one week, but once I got started I couldn't stop. It's a Netflix series and Netflix makes it very easy to binge watch, even with the "Are you still watching?" query every 3 hours or so. Claire … Continue reading While I was knitting … November 15 edition
It's been a very trying week for me, and not just because of the election. I'm switching one of my medications to something else so that maybe I can stop clenching my jaw, grinding my teeth, and biting my tongue and cheeks. But of course, my insurance plan (which we pay for out of pocket, … Continue reading Follow The Awkward Yeti
Wind the Clock For Tomorrow Is Another Day, E. B. White via Letters of Note As long as there is one upright man, as long as there is one compassionate woman, the contagion may spread and the scene is not desolate. Hope is the thing that is left to us, in a bad time. I shall … Continue reading Wordy Wednesday
Saturday, I drove to Richmond, VA with a friend and her daughter, who's taking a class from William and Mary for gifted students. I went along to keep Becky company and hang out while her daughter was in class. I somehow forgot to knit on the way down - it was dark when we set … Continue reading While I was knitting … November 8 edition
