Almost but Never Babies

I have had a hard time letting go of some of my daughter’s things from her baby and toddlerhood. I’ve kept so much –filed away school papers, accident reports from Montessori and Community PreSchool, little scribbles that look kind of like happy dust mites. It’s been so very hard to look …

Two dangers constantly threaten the world: order and disorder. Paul Valery

  Everything in its Place I want a clean and orderly place to sit and think, or make a thing. I want an unstained and fur free couch to watch The Doctor or turn a page. I want an unmuddled and chaos free desk to sit and write  or play …

oh I don’t know –Random Pinging with haiku

I’m just herping and derping around. I’ve messing with my blog plugins. Wondering if I need to change the theme, considering learning how to write a wordpress theme. Except I really like the Steampunk feel to it. I’m thinking about all the things I need to do around the house …

Cleanliness is next to impossible!

How about some Halloween

Well, I don’t think I ever posted any of this years pics. I’m out of words today. I got barked at at work (people really get peevish about computers –seriously peevish) and even though the situation was a case of more work than I have time for, and that I’m …

unpacking

We’re here, we’re halfway unpacked. Maybe later when I’ve had a chance to take a deep breath. Already took some clothes to the Red Cross and some $. Went by the Unitarian Fellowship today and got info for this Sunday. James is out with the Bean picking up some snacks. …
