Raindrops are falling on my head

Raindrops are falling on my head …and the shower is over. Sigh. That was a lot of fun – I’d managed to prepare enough of the food ahead of time that I wasn’t trapped in the kitchen the whole time. The games turned out great! One of them had teams creating bridal gown fashions out … [Read more…]


Bravo I just want to say, even though I didn’t vote for President Bush (and when forced to choose sides I lean a lot more towards being Democrat than Republican), that was one heck of a speech last night. I know, he didn’t write it, but that’s not the point. At the very least, he … [Read more…]

Over the Rainbow

Over the Rainbow This morning I saw a rainbow on my way to work. It was very distinct, with every color rainbows should have, even green! <tangent> When my brother was about 5, he tried very hard to convince us all that green couldn’t be in a rainbow because it was never in the colors … [Read more…]


Baseball Last night was strange. We watched baseball. It was hard to watch it – the players weren’t all that into it, the fans really weren’t enjoying it, and the announcers kept reminding us during the whole game how everyone’s hearts weren’t really in the game. Then why play? Why go? I, for one, thought … [Read more…]

Once again

Once again, I’ve failed to blog over the weekend. Part of it was, as usual, being busy and unwilling to look at a computer. Most of it was because I’m still coping with the emotions this attack has caused. I’ve had to turn off the news for most of the weekend – I can’t watch … [Read more…]


How does anyone return to normal after this sort of event? I can’t even think of anything to blog about – the little things I think about don’t seem to be very important in the grand scheme of things anymore. I’m almost done with the christening gowns. Somehow, even that isn’t so very important – … [Read more…]

I don’t know how

I don’t know how to put into words my reaction about today’s tragedy. A lot of people lost their lives today. Many more than that lost their husbands, wives, children, parents, friends. I struggle between my belief that revenge won’t help anything and my need to see someone suffer for what happened in our country … [Read more…]

I’ve noticed

I’ve noticed that my weekends tend to be blog-free. This is not because I don’t have anything to blog about on weekends; rather, it has more to do with the fact that I avoid computers like the plague when I’m not at work or working on my master’s project. And lately, I’ve been avoiding my … [Read more…]

A last-ditch attempt

In a last-ditch attempt at finding one more summer day, we drove down to the local ice cream shop last night. It was weird to go for ice cream when it was so dark out – I didn’t realize how early the sun has been setting lately… But they had pumpkin ice cream. Intrigued, I … [Read more…]

I did it!

I did it! Last night I managed to sew (correctly, too!) the lining into one of the christening gowns. I feel I can finally publish a picture or two – they’re not scary-looking anymore. :) Now, you have to use your imaginations – pretend the bits of green thread aren’t there, and that there’s a … [Read more…]
