I found another

Art work that grabs my attention. It’s the colour that gets me first. That blue is spectacular. And then I found another. Well two anothers. That foot! I think it’s almost time for me to get my finger out and try to do some serious work. Look at this stuff. It’s not wrong of me […]

Well gosh.

Now I think I need one. – In other news … The quilt is back on. The corners are all but done. I decided to add a little red to the prongy bits, and the background is complete. Still not sure if the whole thing is drab, and, have to admit I felt a little […]

No really, it’s good. Trust me.

I’m kind of getting my food cravings in a twist. I’m not really sure if they’re actual cravings or just romanticized rememberings. Here’s my latest. The famous, Melton Mowbray Pork Pie. (I wanted a bigger picture, but perhaps that will just make my craving worse.) You’ve got to taste this to know how good it […]

Well, it was a nice day for it.

According to this site we are now in overtime. Just over 9 hours (and counting) since the end of the world – in Sydney, Australia. All that worry … for what? I tried asking Siri why the world didn’t end today, but she didn’t understand me. I asked my question slowly, I asked with careful enunciation, I […]

Well, tomorrow’s the big day.

Spencer doesn’t seem that bothered. He’s decided to relax into the trauma of the world ending. I doubt he’ll even bother to get out of bed. I don’t think Scientific America seems that bothered either. They’ll probably get up though. – What does Siri think. Me: Do you think the world will end tomorrow? Siri: […]

The meaning of life …

So, prepare yourself for the next couple of days, or more likely weeks, when the hypochondria sets in, once again, as I’ve just finished sanding S’s room and found, wait for it, white stuff under my mask. Yes, I should have brought out the big mask. The, oh my god it’s so uncomfortable but I […]


(drum roll) I have finished the book! (I know some of you were really worried about how it was going). And it was good. Sadly inevitable but good. I’ve just sent it to my sister, and, as I was buying it on amazon u.k. took the time to read the reviews. A few of them said […]

I can’t stand,

The hatred. The anger. The discrimination. The fear. I can’t stand ignorance. Prejudice. Violence. Terrorism. Anything, in fact, that presumes one being is more important than another. I can’t stand the fact that we can’t seem to get that we are all here together. That we are one. That we shouldn’t need guns to allay […]

Oh no, I did it again.

Is there no hope? I’m not even in jewelry making mode right now. I’m in quilt making mode with a slight leaning toward painting. To complicate everything, the pottery niggle is getting pretty strong also, but, I can’t cope with thinking about that right now. So why? And, (save me now). All I can say […]


Decided to pose for us. Albeit reluctantly. You’ve got to love her. She has issues. Fat issues. I try not to draw attention to it as I want her to feel comfortable in her skin, but, she lay on my chest last night and I felt as though she collapsed a lung. She’s been dieting, […]
