Oh, hi there!

Wine and hexes. Considering pie. Everyone else in bed. #hexchat

  • It's been a crazy week, much of which I'm sad to say, I can't share with you all. Boo. (Nothing bad, just not my story to tell.)
  • I can tell you that on Wednesday the Pirate's school got out early. I had no idea. Until they called me. Oops.
  • Thanksgiving was nearly perfect. The food was all completely excellent. It was just the five of us, no stress, all relaxation. I took a nap! (If you know me at all, you know this is amazing.)
  • The Bug is struggling with impulse control and wildness this week. He sometimes seems completely oblivious to the fact that if he acts like a brat, no one else will want to play with him! It is insanely tiring.
  • I'm trying to get some sewing done in the shop for Cyber Monday. Right now there is just one new item (this lovely purse), but I just completed a set of e-reader cases and have more cut and ready to go. You can see a preview of the cases on the Facebook page. They are sized for either a Kindle Fire or a Nook Color.
  • I'm up to 228 hexes for my pink and gray quilt! (only 3772 to go!) I am definitely gonna need more fabric. 
What I Read This Week:


  1. Impulse control is so hard for little ones around the holidays.

  2. I totally agree that that book could have used some better editing. Oh well. . .

  3. I need those wine glasses. Since I mostly drink in bed (I know, so weird but I do it while reading), the stem of the glass gets caught on my comforter. I want a glass that I can drink without having to sit up to take a sip. So lazy, huh? I shouldn't be leaving this comment...

    Both of those books sound like heavy reading! I'm reading a book for book club right now called I'm Down--about a white girl whose dad thought he was black. The writing is terrible but I'm going to try to power through.

  4. I hope the Bug gets over that phase soon! Glad you had a great Thanksgiving. :)

  5. Sorry to hear you're not enjoying The Warmth of Other Suns; it's one I've had my eye on for quite a while. Hmm, maybe not going to rush to it any time soon.

    Glad you had such a lovely Thanksgiving!

  6. Running Away to Home sounds like a great read! I hadn't heard of it before not but I'm adding it to my TBR list, and I can't wait to hear your thoughts when you finish. Pickle is struggling with the terrible twos/almost threes...I'm not sure which is worse at this point. I do know that I feel your pain. I keep telling myself that he will grow out of it but ugh!
