I can't believe another client deadline of 8/31 is nearly here but on the other hand - did my brother really get his kitten only three weeks ago? I thought he had her for two months now. What… Continue reading It’s That Little Souvenir of a Terrible Year

Good morning, friends! As I type this, I am drinking coffee, have a knitting project on my lap (I needed a break from the llama amigurumi torso) and am wondering when the Twilight Zone marathon is starting (edit: it's already started, YAY!)  I can hardly believe it is already New Year's Eve. What a year.… Continue reading 2018 Recap
