An old year ends, a new year begins

Yes, I meant to write this post about two weeks ago, but time passed. But time passing is kind of what this post is all about, so hey, it’s appropriate. 2012 was a pretty good year. It was the first full calendar year of my being completely self-employed, and I still have a roof over …

Am I coming or going?

rest area flowers

The Indiana Fiber and Music Festival was a lot of fun, despite my barely being alive still recovering from pneumonia. Highlights from the trip included: These flowers at a rest area in Kentucky on the way down. What are these? I don’t think we have these in Michigan. One of my customers came just to …

46 for 46

Today is my 46th birthday. I decided to tell you 46 random things in honor of my 46th birthday. If you go to Zingerman’s on your birthday, you can get 6 free bagels. Their bagels are delicious. I’m eating my third bagel today. That makes me feel kind of like a pig, but I only …

More woolly goodness, and I suck at blogging

So, I’ve been adding stuff to my store and remembering to tell folks on Facebook, Twitter, and Ravelry, but I keep forgetting to blog about it. (You might want to click on the links in the upper right hand corner over there to keep up with my informative posts plus lots of inane chatter.) Anyway, …

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 …

Business = busyness

No, I didn’t forget about you guys.  I’ve been really busy getting stuff ready to send to Susan for the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival, which is next weekend (if you’re in the area, check it out!).  I’ve been dyeing yarn and fiber and making jewelry, and I didn’t get as much done as I …

I give up.  I tried the gluten-free diet for nearly 10 weeks, and I didn’t see any decrease in the frequency or severity of my migraines.  In fact I spent a couple of days this week feeling like there was an elephant standing on my head.  So screw it. I just had an Amy’s Roasted …

Hey, I’m famous!

Well, maybe not.  But I wrote a guest post for Ann Arbor’s getDowntown blog and it was published today.  Check it out! Other than that, I’m kind of too migrained out to write much.  Anyone know how long it should take for a gluten free diet to make the migraines stop if it’s going to?

Review: 2 brands of gluten-free spaghetti

Well, I don't usually post twice in one day (wow, I'm lucky to post twice in one week.  I'm really on a roll here), but I just finished lunch.  I use spaghetti as Chinese noodles, and when I first went gluten-free, I bought a couple of different brands of gluten-free spaghetti to replace the whole …

In praise of the Chickpea

So since I'm always on the lookout for new foods to try, and since I'm not getting as much protein from bread as I was (I did find some decent bread — Glutino — but the pieces are small and it has to be toasted, so it's not really good for sandwiches.  It makes good …
