Being late on my posting was difficult to handle. I had an eye on the deadline as it loomed. I tried not to fret, figuring if I worked steadily I might just be able to catch up by Thursday morning. Nope, instead I learned another lesson about planning for the recoup-ment of energy as well as the use of it. Continue reading Big Week
Well, enough people have asked after this recipe, that it merits a pub. I made these Baked Alaska bites for a finger-food party. I’m glad I took pictures. For a good turn out, give yourself enough time (at least four days in my case) and a spacious, cold freezer. A cool room to work in would be bonus. Continue reading Flaming Igloos, the recipe
I remain cautious and keep an awareness of my surroundings. Listening for the back door and as well to the stairs from the second floor. I pull out my phone, thinking at least to prepare a dial to 911. It can’t find a signal. I put it back in my pocket. I start to wonder what the outcome of all of this will be.

I keep walking Continue reading No Matter What, part 1
This is all cull. Continue reading Pepper Jelly and Applesauce
You know all that stuff I wrote in October about not being that good at designing web pages? Well, heh, I’ve got a couple web clients and one of them needs a redesign of their look and feel. I’ll be working from existing artwork and I’m feeling pretty good about that, so I think I’m well placed to give it another go. I’ve found myself some good design resources, a cool mentor and a few neat Meet-Up groups.

Winter arrived quite suddenly for the likes of fall, Autumn was barely finished packing to leave. A small interchange of sharp tongues. Bags were hastily stuffed with last minute bits. There was a cramped kerfuffle in the hall as their eyes met. Autumn walked out the door without looking back. A small trail of brown flakes fell across the threshold. Continue reading Kerfuffle
