Living, Learning, and Feeding the Soul

Living, Learning, and Feeding the Soul

Living and Learning I am a big believer in trying to find a silver lining or lesson in everything that happens in life.  That’s my way of trying to make something good of situations and experiences that are often anything but good.  Sometimes those lessons are positive; sometimes they aren’t.  But there is always something to […]

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 […]

Sugar Cones… in yarn!

Sugar Cones… in yarn!

I literally just finished the Sugar Cone Skully Hat by Julie of Gleeful Things and I LOVE it!  It is the worsted weight version of her VERY popular Waffle Cone Slouchy Hat.  This pattern was super easy, all single crochet and double crochet.  There was an error in the 4th round, but one that is super easy to correct. […]

Adventures in ink…

Adventures in ink…

Yesterday my eldest went from ink virgin to tatted up.  While I don’t see him becoming as inked and steeled as I am and will be, I foresee more in his future!  He went first, but I got one, too, an admittedly unusual mother/son bonding experience! We started our day at the tattoo place, discussing […]

Negativity and Joy!

Negativity and Joy!

On Wednesday, I wrote a little bit about negativitiy and how I seem to be more and more aware of it, now that I am actively seeking to get away from it.  But I have been noticing something else about it.  It is annoying me more and more when someone is negative over seemingly ridiculous […]

It’s only Wednesday and I am ready for the weekend, which is probably NOT a good sign, huh?!  I blame it mostly upon the juvenile delinquents that live in our neighborhood and a sexist pig in the form of our Slum Lord.  It all began Thursday afternoon after school.  I was in the back of […]
