Vacation Woot

I’m heading to TX on Thursday for Memorial Day weekend. I haven’t seen my mom in three years and she moved over to the Galveston area from Daytona Beach. Since she’s much closer now than she was in FL it seemed like an opportune time to visit a place I’ve never been before.

The weather is 30% chance of rain for the weekend, so I’m taking plenty of rainy day stuff to do, including my Roland Garros knitting project. I decided to make it with short rows to create a wedged effect. So far it’s coming out nice, though Rafa has only played the first round so far. For more information on that, read my post here.

Mom lives on a boat, so I’ll get to experience that while I’m down there. I’m looking forward to it. There is a small marina here that has some house boats anchored, and every time I drive by I think it would be kind of awesome to have a house boat, even just a small one-room affair. Hers isn’t a house boat, it’s a sail boat that has several cabins in it. If the weather is nice enough we will probably even sail, which would be amazing.

So until Thursday I have a laundry list of things to get done, one of which involves hunting for my camera’s charging cord. No way do I go on vacay and not have a camera with me!

Have a shiny day.

Roland Garros Freeform C/KAL

(C/KAL = Crochet/Knit A-Long) Developed by NCC-1701 for V Studios I came up with an idea for a fun knitting or crocheting project which will run during Roland Garros this year. The clay court tennis tournament runs from May 23-June 5. The object is to make a visual “record” and wearable (or displayable) object of… Continue reading Roland Garros Freeform C/KAL


Beautiful. Evil.

A beautiful short story, almost more poetic than prose. Reblogged from the original post. See below 🙂


Sixeighty Writing

A story I quickly threw together based on something from mySestina.

Once, the world split into twins.
One, a beautiful creature of protection, peace and calmness.
The other, as beautiful, yet behind its mask, a storm of rage and hatred.

They existed in harmony, watching over there people. For as the left gave, the right took away.
And yet, for all the time they spent together, they hid the true nature of their visage for the angel, forever wearing a beautiful smile upon her face to disguise the pain she felt at the betrayal of her sibling.

The sibling, wearing a face identical to her sister, took from the world the love her sister gave, destroying happiness and causing tragedy the world over.

Sorry this isn’t my best, I wrote this without planning or much time to do so.
