My Monday

It’s odd to work on a Sunday. The world feels much more relaxed and mellow, and you’re able to go in with a very light heart (despite needing an extra cup of coffee). Sunday night comes, and the world starts to speed up and hunker 

I Wanna Be a Cowgirl

March is National Craft Month. There are plenty of times where I come across the remnants of a client’s craft project, started in a burst of enthusiasm only to be stuffed in a box or some random corner once the new project smell has worn 

Missing Out

When I was little, I wanted to be a long haul truck driver. My parents said absolutely not. A few years later, I wanted to be a cab driver. My parents said not on your life. Well, the plan tonight is to watch Big Rig 


Read more coverage from Japan. Noticed a story about a man rescued at sea from the roof of his house that makes me immensely sad. “Mr Shinkawa told his rescuers that the tsunami had hit as he and his wife returned home to gather some 

Higher Ground

Today has been dominated by news of the earthquake and resultant tsunami. Here in San Francisco, the Great Highway and all beaches were closed, and police are telling gawkers to stay away. I watched a video this morning of footage someone took during the quake

Grits for Lunch

Catching up with the never ending to-do list, and lunch with a friend today. More jeans, more t-shirt, today with my trusty Chico’s scarf (i love that scarf, and don’t understand all the shade people throw chico’s).  Silver pendant is from a trip to Burning 


Rainy Sunday, slightly chilly. Worked with the fine gentlemen of Omega Recoil this afternoon. Straight leg Eddie Bauer jeans, thermal shirt, and gym shoes. They’re my old running shoes, and are also good for being on my feet all day in places where I don’t
