Goodbye and goodnight, 2010

Goodbye and goodnight, 2010

December 31, 2010 by Maire in Events / 0 Comments

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by, and all the things that have happened between then and now.  It seems yesterday I was waking up on January 1st, and now I’m putting the capper on another year. I decided to put together a little photo-mosaic of all the really nice shots I’ve […]

A post per day?

A post per day?

December 30, 2010 by Maire in Writing / 0 Comments

I belatedly came across the knowledge that November was NaBloPoMo* (National Blog Post Month).  There was a part of me that was a wee bit upset that I missed it.  After all, posting every day and actually having something to share is one heck of a challenge.  I suppose that it’s a good thing that […]

WIP Wednesday

WIP Wednesday

December 29, 2010 by Maire in Hobbies / 2 Comments

I saw this particular little weekly feature on Turtlegirl’s blog and thought I might follow suit.  Of course, afterwards I googled WIP Wednesday, and apparently it’s not a new idea…so now I don’t feel quite so cheesy! My Noro striped shawl is shaping up quite nicely.  It’s getting large enough to take more time to […]

Merry Christmas!

So far, today has been nice and relaxing, aside from a little traffic.  We went for a wonderful breakfast, and picked up a couple of things that Robin needed from one of the stores (not the mall, thank goodness).  We’re now taking a little time to rest up for the main holiday events. I’ve been […]

Dark side of the Moon

Just a quick one before dashing off to work on the shortest day of the year… Stayed up way too late last night to watch the beginning of the Lunar Eclipse last night.  I even took a few pictures!  When I get home from work this afternoon, I’ll go through them and see if any […]

Black Holes

Black Holes

Well, the thing about a black hole – its main distinguishing feature – is it’s black. And the thing about space, the colour of space, your basic space colour, is black. So how are you supposed to see them? –Holly, Ship’s computer, Red Dwarf (episode: Marooned) You see that sock?  It’s black.  And the thing […]

My Travel Mug is trying to Kill Me

My Travel Mug is trying to Kill Me

December 8, 2010 by Maire in Hobbies / 2 Comments

A few weeks ago, I was nuking some leftovers for lunch at work.  A co-worker came out, inspected my chili, deemed it savory-smelling enough, and then commented that he had the exact same plastic tubs at home but was hesitant to use them.  When pressed, he muttered “Bisphenol-A” and left it at that. That’s my […]

Surviving the Mall

Surviving the Mall

Aside from the weird colours of “plaid” displayed at the local Tommy Hilfiger shop, we found this sweater that had to boldly assert the fact that it is, indeed, fair-isle.  WTF? Seriously, if the husbeast wasn’t already aware of what Fair-Isle knitting was, this would stump him.  I can see men all over the world […]

Sometimes it’s the simple things

Sometimes it’s the simple things

December 1, 2010 by Maire in Hobbies / 0 Comments

Remember that whole pretending to be grown up thing I was talking about?  We’re making a pretty concerted effort to be more aware of what’s going on, and it’s really paying off. This is what it looks like around here tonight.  We’re finding that with both of us working on our respective writing, we can […]
