Procrastination

January 11, 2011 by Maire in Hobbies / 0 Comments

I have a confession. See that?  It’s a Sims 3 household.  It was only a matter of time before it happened.  First it starts with needing to update your iPod using iTunes, and then you wind up checking to see if one of your video games will boot…next thing you know, it’s a week later, […]

A Few of my Favourite Things

A Few of my Favourite Things

January 6, 2011 by Maire in Writing / 2 Comments

The Daily Post wanted to know what makes me smile, and wouldn’t you know it, but a lot of things make me smile.  This lovely mosaic is by no means complete; there are a lot more people, places and things out there that I haven’t managed to take a decent picture of yet! Which, of […]

WIP Wednesday!

WIP Wednesday!

January 5, 2011 by Maire in Hobbies / 0 Comments

I’ve actually gotten a bit done on all my projects this week.  Even the sweater, though I haven’t been able to snag any photos of it.  I’ve finished the increase rows on the February Lady Sweater yoke and am now completing the last couple of garter stitch rows.  Then it’s on to the body and […]

Accomplishments

Accomplishments

January 4, 2011 by Maire in Writing / 0 Comments

Time for another hard-hitting Daily Post question! What’s the single most important thing you accomplished in 2010? Well, I didn’t accomplish much that was too difficult.  Really.  I didn’t solve world peace, or end starvation. I didn’t write a best-selling novel, and I didn’t enlarge the family or find the cure for cancer.  I knit […]

Who Deserves More Credit?

January 3, 2011 by Maire in Writing / 0 Comments

Today’s choice from the ongoing stockpile of Daily Post questions is: Name someone who deserves more credit than they get. And for bonus points, how to change things so they get more.  Of course, we’re not constrained to just the literal question, but can think outside the box if we wish. What occurs to me […]

Three Countries

January 2, 2011 by Maire in Writing / 2 Comments

I have to admit that the Daily Post project looks a little like every other topic prompter so far.  No hard-hitting questions.  Luckily, I’ve let a couple of days’ worth of topics stockpile while I’ve been doing things like my own yearly recap and podcast.  I’m thinking I may continue to allow the stockpile to […]

Stringchronicity Episode 13: Happy New Year!

Stringchronicity Episode 13: Happy New Year!

January 1, 2011 by Maire in Hobbies / 0 Comments

Listen Here! Happy New Year!  Hope yours went well!  I’m still a little scattered-sounding, but at least I’m back to podcasting on a weekend instead of catch-as-catch-can during the week. I talk about how busy the Christmas season was, particularly regarding the amount of households we visited.  I also mention that swag was exchanged amongst […]

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 […]
