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 …

My excellent New York adventure

Or the story of Vogue Knitting Live 2012. Wow. Just wow. That’s the short version. The long version is much longer. With lots of pictures. Ok, let’s get started. We left Wednesday morning with Rob’s van loaded full of all of my yarn, fiber, wearable art, booth fixtures, our clothes, and so on and so …

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 …

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 …

Uncle

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 …

Like I’m not already a picky enough eater

Back in January Donna left a comment regarding migraine and gluten intolerance.  I looked into it a bit but got kind of distracted so didn’t read that much about it.  Then last month someone else mentioned it to me.  Ok, time to really look into it. I found that celiac disease has 250-300 symptoms.  It’s …

Wow, a new year already, huh?

I’ve actually been meaning to write for a couple of weeks, but I’ve been so busy doing stuff, I haven’t had time to write about it.  Some people are able to make time for both, and I envy them, but my brain doesn’t seem to be constructed that way.  And so, of course, the more …

I am thankful

A while ago Jennifer suggested writing a gratitude list with at least 100 things you’re grateful for.  I liked that idea, so here, now on Thanksgiving, is my list. I am thankful… that I have a roof over my head. that I have clean running water. that I have a working furnace. that I have …

A quick update (because that’s all I have the energy for)

So last week I got the second set of botox injections.  I think they actually worked this time.  Hard to tell, because now I’ve got bronchitis, and I’ve had a few headaches just from coughing.  I don’t think they were migraines though.  But, um, yeah, all I’ve been good for the last few days is …
