I did some sketching over Christmas week, and I had one that turned out surprisingly well. Something about this one turned much better than my usual efforts. Something about the eyes maybe? Anyway, I'm proud of my efforts on this one, and I'll be painting it in gouache at some point along the way. *smile*
This post is entirely for your amusement. I found that I had taken photos of the worst bread fail - the craggy mountain bread. I didn't think to take photos of the dripping bread, but this one looks worse at least. And the bottom: We had to cut out the paddle. So not only did … Continue reading Bread Fail
This is my seventh year blogging we're going into, and I'm sitting at 860 and change posts thus far. I haven't gotten much traction, but I don't focus on any particular topic. Instead I just do life updates, which I'll admit are not that exciting. But I enjoy having this record of my life. It's … Continue reading Year End Thoughts

KODAK Digital Still Camera Now, the reviews say the recipes are good but to bake it under white bread because the gluten free setting doesn't have enough time to rise set into it. I tested the breadmaker … Continue reading Gluten Free Breadmaker?
I moved my plants indoors for the winter, and I didn't notice soon enough that the sequoia was too tall for the grow lights and not getting enough light. I switched things around, but it was too late. So, I moved the dead tree to the deck where the cold will kill the fungus gnats. … Continue reading RIP Sequoia Tree
Now that I've completed HB90 again, and I've laid out my goals, I updated my Kanban Board. I moved all the old post its down since the quarter isn't done. And I put the new goals in on sticky tabs since I didn't like stacking the post its so much. And a close up of … Continue reading Updated Kanban Board
So, I've decided that after the Girlie series, I want to write something with a card master as the main character. To do this, I've ordered some books on tarot, and a set of tarot cards. (Actually two sets.) BUT, I also bought the Card Captor cards. I used to have one of these sets, … Continue reading Card Captor Sakura Decks
