Happy birthday to me!

That’s right!  I’m 45 today!  And it’s a pretty good day (aside from the sore throat my body decided to give me as a birthday present, but I’ll overlook that).  My garden says it’s definitely spring, calendar be damned.  Dwarf irises are blooming, which was an absolute delight, because I forgot I planted those! In …

Feeling Reflective

Yep.  I guess it's that time of year.  Time to reflect back on the past year and think about what I want next year to be like.  2010.  The first thing I need to do is figure out how to pronounce it.  I keep reading it as "two thousand ten."  I hear people saying "twenty …

A Finished Object

No, I didn't finish a knitting project.  And no, the store isn't ready (almost though!).  But Fairy Yarnmother's Blog is ready!  Yay!  Other than that, I've been dyeing a lot, and I need to buy a dehumidifier, because all the stuff hanging in the basement to dry just isn't drying with the dyepot steaming the …

Howdy

Ok, so it's not that I've been absent from the internet.  I've just found Twitter way more addicting than I anticipated.  And then I created a Facebook page for Fairy Yarnmother, only to discover I couldn't only put up a business page; I also had to have a personal account.  And that's been way more …

Oops

I meant to write on my Blogiversary.  I knew it was coming up some time around now.  I looked to see when it was, and oops, it was two days ago.  Well, happy belated Blogiversary to me. I still haven’t finished the sweater I was knitting a year ago.  Or rather I finished it, but …

What’s going on

Several people have been emailing me over the past week to let me know that Ken's site is down.  Yep, it's still down.  Yep, it sucks.  This is the 5th anniversary of Ken's death.  It's just really rubbing salt in a wound to have his site down. I do maintenance on his site, but I …

Oh, am I actually supposed to post once in a while?

So, I guess I just haven't really felt like blogging lately.  Stuff happens, and I think "oh, that would be a good thing to blog about," and then I never get around to it.  The blogging bug seems to have un-bit me.  But I'll see if I can give you a pathetic rundown of what's …

Oh, you want an update of what I’ve been doing?

Yeah, I thought so.  I haven't been a very good blogger lately.  I've been doing stuff, but not showing you.  What fun is that? So.  It's Show and Tell Day here at Acme Acres.  First off, I finished my punk grrl socks.  They rock, as they should. Now that the bus socks are finished, the …

Tick tock

I meant to write a post looking back over 2007 before 2007 actually ended. And then somehow the year ended, and the new year came, and we’re several days into it already.  I seem to be time impaired.  This is one of those left brain/right brain things, I think.  I’m just not very time oriented. …
