So, it’s a constant struggle to get the cats to the vet. Except for Apple. He’s a dork, he gets in the carrier and then figures out afterward that it’s a bad idea when the doors close. But he never remembers and I pray to Bast this little ball o’fluff never figures it out. But […]

We’re into September–heading into my favorite part of the year! I’ve got my early autumn decorations up (I put them up shortly after Lughnasadh)–the autumn leaves, early harvest decorations. I’m trying to keep myself from raiding the back-to-school sales because I don’t NEED any more office supplies, and I’m waiting for our rainy season to […]

OFFICE SUPPLIES!!! A writer’s crack. I love office supply stores, whether in person or online. I have an incredibly well stocked office and am constantly trying to rationalize the use for whatever new cool gadget, Post-It note, binder, folder that comes along. What’s your ‘crack’ store? Where do you just want to go crazy? And […]

I’ve never been in a ‘real’ castle, but they fascinate me. I’ve always been fascinated with the story of “Mad King Ludwig II” and I think the castle Neuschwanstein is beautiful. I’d love to visit it one day. Castles make me think of epic fantasy, tragic romance, and a time long gone. So, have you […]

Be nice or I’ll be hiding the bodies. *stares sternly* So, I’m going to need things to laugh at. Tell me something funny today! […]

We’re coming up on Lughnasadh, for Pagans, which is one of my favorite festivals, actually. For us it’s a yearly tradition, and I make a Corn Dolly for the house every year to consecrate and hang up. Do you have any crafts that you like to do around this time of year (doesn’t have to […]

Down at Marymoor Park, where I take my Year-Of pictures, they have movies in the park in the evenings during the summer. It’s a little reminiscent of the old fashioned drive-ins, and lazy summer Saturdays watching movies.  For me, I remember the old B-grade SF movies like The Day the Earth Stood Still, and Creature […]

We’re in the middle of July now. Heading into the latter half of the summer. So it’s time to think picnics and summer outings and vacations. I’ve always wanted to visit Iceland, though I think I’d rather go in winter to chance seeing the northern lights. But summer? I’d like to see Alaska–it would be […]

So, today I’m staring at several appointments that interrupt my work. Luckily, it’s planning, not actual writing today. I have very few thoughts for today except: get everything done, and get ready for a weekend visitor. So what’s your Friday/weekend looking like?
