A little bit of insight…

A little bit of insight…

I had a homework assignment this week for my Craft and Practice in Creative Writing class.  It was an “observation and reflection” free-writing exercise for which we were to take 20-30 minutes in some familiar setting.  For the first 10-15 minutes, we had to simply observe on our surroundings, considering the external aspects of our environment.  For […]

College and Crochet

College and Crochet

A little bit of Hermione… I am truly loving most of my classes this semester!  I only have one that is a traditional classroom setting, albeit an online one.  That is my Mythology and Modern Life class.  I really am loving my class in terms of what I am studying.  My professor is amazing; I’ve done […]

Crafty Witch and Pseudo-Hermione

Crafty Witch and Pseudo-Hermione

The Crafty Witch I spent part of yesterday afternoon updating PDFs for my own crochet designs, offered here as well, and setting up a Ravelry store.  All of my goodies are free, at least so far.  I found a couple of great Ravelry plugins for my site, too, in my side bar.  One (Ravelry Goodies) shows […]

Tryin’ to get my learnin’ on…

Tryin’ to get my learnin’ on…

I have never in my life tried so hard to learn something in my life and it is frustrating as hell.  Before this semester, I was so looking forward to my two independent study classes, Women of Faerie and The Faerie Realm in Folklore and Literature, both taught by the same professor.  I registered for them last […]

Catching up…

Catching up…

Time flies… It's been more than a month since I last blogged.  I had been good about blogging regularly, but I needed to take a bit of a step back, I guess.  I have been taking a bit of a social media hiatus, light on the blogging, light on the Facebook.  I have been kind […]

Faeries in my future

Faeries in my future

Today is a big day in my world.  It is registration day for next semester and, of course, it is Election Day.  I have registered for 4 classes, although I may need to add another.  Then there is the question of financial aid.  Will I still be eligible if I find out that I need […]

I was so ready to move…

I was so ready to move…

I was so ready to move to Arizona this summer, so ready.  After the last several years, most particularly this last one, starting over in a new place sounded wonderful.  We are still going to move, but nearly as soon as we initially thought, which was within the net few weeks.   Corey has sleep […]

Bus accident

Bus accident

Pretty scary stuff, since this accident happened just down the road from us.  We live just outside village limits and this bus goes the opposite direction on the same road.  Fortunately, there were only 5 minor injuries, like bumps and bruises.  I didn’t even know about it until I was at dinner and overheard some […]

The Army vs. Family

The Army vs. Family

Where does the time go? Donovan decided on a college last night.  He is a future University at Albany – SUNY alumni!  That is the same college I went to as a freshman and 1 semester as a sophmore before I went into the Army.  He also got accepted into the Honors College, which sounds like something […]
