Up and/or down(ish)

Hi chums! So 2015 has been a pearler for me so far. Ups and downs, sort of, and we’re only three weeks in. I’ve just completed my training as a yoga teacher and it was the most wonderful thing ever. Guided by the wonderful Heather Agnew of Yoga Trinity, I and 19 other students studied, […]

Corny

Stumped for inspiration, yet finding myself in the kitchen armed with a spoon and a bowl, I turned my attention to the Foodin’ Challenge List! Today’s spectacular triumph: cornbread. Cornbread is so easy I feel a bit embarrassed about listing it anywhere even tangentially connected to the word “challenge”. It’s easier than muffins. It’s easier […]

Poolish Play Part 2: Glory

Lotta pictures ’round here. As I mentioned previously, if anyone can persuade me to rock the slow-rise bread, it’s Bertinet. Having let my lush, silken dough rise for 90 minutes, it was time for shaping. I took about two-thirds of the enormous dough the recipe produced and divided it into ten lumps. After a short […]

Which is a fancy way of saying that they’re taking the NaKniSweMo idea and multiplying it by twelve.  NaKniSweMo is, of course, an adaptation of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month, where you write 50,000 words in the month of November). I personally think […]

Unplanned holiday

Sorry about the hiatus, chums.  I wish I could say that my life has been so glorious and hectic and dazzling that I’ve been kept away from the keyboard, but frankly, that’s not the case.  I’ve just been doing other stuff. Things I Have Been Doing: Finished reading the Harry Potter series.  When I was […]

Extroversion/introversion/retroversion

Did you ever do one of those “personality” quizzes?  When I was in high school, these pseudo-psychological things were all the rage in the vaguer classes such as “social studies” and “health”.  Now that I’m a grown-up and occasionally get bundled off to training courses for work, I’ve learned that they’re still kicking around.  They’re […]

Clouds on the ground

This picture shows the clouds on the ground one morning this winter.  My Dad took this picture, and I think it’s beautiful. Winter scenery never ceases to enchant me.
