To Whom It May Concern | 3.31.23

I have not done a 'mail bag' post in too long. My witty-ness seems to have been on hiatus. But then this week provided me with a few letters to send out on the inter-webs. Dear Highly Recommended Physical Therapist, I left my ortho appointment with the delightful Dr....

Unraveled Wednesday | 3.29.23

Greetings Unravelers! March is almost over, April is right around the corner! (And I hope that April will be bringing the nice weather! I am so over cold, grey, rainy, windy, snowy weather!) I have been working a bit on the Easter Gnome – meet Gnormanda! She still...

Inside Authenticity | March 2023

Inside Authenticity | March 2023

March was a month of heavy lifting... interior heavy lifting... which is not always the best blog fodder. Ali Edward's team did not make this month's work any easier... they suggested having a conversation with our word, and so I spent a great deal of time in quiet...

March RIFFing | 3.24.23

March RIFFing | 3.24.23

By March, the worst of the winter would be over. The snow would thaw, the rivers begin to run and the world would wake into itself again. Not that year. Winter hung in there, like an invalid refusing to die. Day after grey day the ice stayed hard; the world remained...

Unraveled Wednesday | 3.22.23

Greetings Unravelers! A small delight filled my brain as I typed the palindrome date... such a simple thing but delightful none the less. Which is perfect because it has been a week of delights! Delight Number One: A finished collar on my handspun sweater. It is...

Sometimes Monday | 3.20.23

It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart. ― Rainer Maria Rilke It has been a March of All The Weather... we have had very warm days (72° F on the first!!), some very cold days (a low of 18° F over the weekend, sigh), winds, rain, snow,...

A Gathering Of Poetry | March 2023

A Gathering Of Poetry | March 2023

Happy Third Thursday....aka Gathering of Poetry Day! In my search for a poem to share with you all, I read a lot of poetry. But one poem has stuck with me and I have thought about it every single day since I read it. It is a poem by Mary Oliver, who seems to have a...

Unraveled Wednesday | 3.15.23

By March, the worst of the winter would be over. The snow would thaw, the rivers begin to run and the world would wake into itself again. Not that year. Winter hung in there, like an invalid refusing to die. Day after grey day the ice stayed hard; the world remained...

Museum of Me – Science For Real Life | 3.10.23

Museum of Me – Science For Real Life | 3.10.23

If I look back on my school days... which I do with some regularity in my 60's... and I note two key things: If I was good at something, I wanted to do it all the time.  If I was not good at something, I found ways to avoid doing it at all costs.  Those two things sum...

Unraveled Wednesday | 3.8.23

Greetings Unravelers! It's been a week of incremental making... bits of knitting on several projects. First up, I finished Gnedward! Gnedward has had a wandering life... and along the way if he saw a button, he picked it up! He has an impressive collection of solitary...

Hello March | 3.6.23

Hello March | 3.6.23

March came in that winter like the meekest and mildest of lambs, bringing days that were crisp and golden and tingling, each followed by a frosty pink twilight which gradually lost itself in an elfland of moonshine. ― L.M. Montgomery L.M. Montgomery's quote seems to...

Friday Finds | 3.3.23

Friday Finds | 3.3.23

The First March Friday... is very March-like. We have winds heading our way... and rain. And windy March days always, always brings Maurice Sendak's Chicken Soup With Rice book to the forefront of my mind. I especially love the poem for March: So bring on those...

Unraveled Wednesday | 3.1.23

Unraveled Wednesday | 3.1.23

Greetings Unravelers! It's Wednesday. It's March. And I have some making *thoughts* to share! I have been contemplating that gorgeous corduroy I got some months ago... that I have done nothing with. I had the idea that it would work for this pattern and I even made a...

An Authenticity Manifesto | February 2023

An Authenticity Manifesto | February 2023

Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer. — Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters To A Young Poet. I hinted Friday that this month turned into a delightful adventure. But it certainly did not start out that way!...

RIFFing to bid February Adieu | 2.24.23

RIFFing to bid February Adieu | 2.24.23

This week has been a Weather Roller Coaster... we have had temps in the 70's and the 30's. Let me just say that this mornings 30° felt bitterly cold after yesterday's 72° and I was so glad that I had mitts tucked in the pockets of my coat for Sherman's morning...

Unraveled Wednesday | 2.22.23

Unraveled Wednesday | 2.22.23

Greetings Unravelers. It is a day of many things; it's the last Wednesday the month and it is Ash Wednesday which brings return of "Fish Fry Season" (at least in my corner of the world!) And it is, of course, a day to share what we are making and what the books have...

Sometimes Monday | 2.20.23

Sometimes Monday | 2.20.23

Is a continuation of the weekend. I thought I'd share some of the things that have made my weekend extra wonderful! First, I saw this on IG and I had a batch of focaccia in the fridge... so on Saturday I did a bit of a riff on it. One russet potato, a couple of...

Mid-Winter Friday Finds | 2.17.23

I don't know about you, but I have found since I turned the "50's" corner, I have struggled mightily each year with an ever worsening case of the dreaded Dry Winter Skin! Usually, by mid-February, there is not enough moisturizer in North America to make a difference....
