Murder Mystery Mood

Finished Brownies and Broomsticks today. I really appreciated the more down to earth approach to magic and spellwork. I especially liked the connection between quantum physics and magic. My only real issue is that there are two fellas equally interested in the protagonist and that scenario always makes me uncomfortable. She handles it well, though,Continue reading “Murder Mystery Mood”

Seriously Anxiety!

I’ve taken a few more days off from working out than I had been planning. My mom’s visits usually do that. But now I’m suffering the consequences. Today’s anxiety is sort of like an unexplained dread. I’m starting a new adventure (I am taking on a second massage job) and the great unknown is unnerving.Continue reading “Seriously Anxiety!”

A Magical Bakery Mystery and Knitting

I finally decided to go ahead and let myself read the books I really want to instead of not reading at all. I have every intention of continuing to make my way through Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs, but it takes a lot of focus and I really want to knit at the same time.Continue reading “A Magical Bakery Mystery and Knitting”

Now that I’ve got the four patterns established, it should be pretty quick to make a bunch. Then IContinue reading “I Got Distracted”

I cooked the pasta and put the frozen corn and peas in the oven with butter. After heating that for a bit I mixed in the beans and ground turkey. Salt, pepper, mincedContinue reading “Cooking with Nothing”

Mixing Seed and Basketweave

These are some of my favorite stitch patterns. Simple. Repetitive. Yet varied enough to keep me engaged. I’m really enjoying this cotton yarn, too. The brown one is a diamond stitch with a basketweave border. The green is moss stitch. It took me a bit to get the stitch count right so the patterns work.Continue reading “Mixing Seed and Basketweave”

Trying Some Self Care… Again

Well, I’m at it once more. Trying to start a workout routine. I’ve been in too much pain and feeling really weak. My anxiety has been leaving me flat and tired way too often. It’s time to make a change. Again. So, I’m trying a new approach and maybe even a bit of my ownContinue reading “Trying Some Self Care… Again”
