Impromptu Holiday

Saturday, May 29th, 2004

I never plan my holidays very well. I know they’re coming up, but I just don’t sit down and figure out a plan for what I want to do until the last moment. Case in point: it’s Memorial Day weekend. Months ago I had planned to drive out to Big Bend with some friends. Well, […]

Second violin recital

Tuesday, May 25th, 2004

Yesterday I attended my second violin recital. Unfortunately, this time I didn’t take a camera with me, which is really too bad because we got to do in the sanctuary of the church this time. It was a lovely space with really great acoustics. Once again, I screwed up my first piece. I don’t play […]

One Ride

Thursday, May 20th, 2004

I have only ever been on one bike ride in my life. The ride started one weekend when my father gathered up my brother, my sister and I and took us on a trip to the chapel at Camp Bullis. We lived in a little suburban community called the Woods of Shavano in North Western […]

Looking Forward

Just to jot a couple of quick notes to myself: Main projects for the coming year: colored candleflame shawl aran pattern

Chipping at the shell

Sunday, May 16th, 2004

I went out to a fundraiser for a local women’s center last night. It was the Bling-Bling Fling, a silent auction of local art. They also had DJs, a coupld of bands, and a buffet. I met up with Thomas and Kelly there. Jane, my violin teacher, showed up as well. It was a very […]

Almost numb

Friday, May 14th, 2004

Why, oh why, do I agree to take on freelance gigs? Oh yeah. Money. Plus the fact that I love solving problems. The thing is that I tend to tackle problems with absolutely no concept of time budgeting. Case in point: my dear friend Thomas, who recently kicked butt in his first triathlon, just got […]

Daddy got a new pair of shoes

Monday, May 10th, 2004

Friday was a really cruddy day. I was irritated when I got into work – I forget why now – and immediately started hitting technical problems. Normally I like solving problems, but these were web server configuration issues. I hardly ever work with web server configurations, so I don’t know much about them. Sometimes I […]

Well crap.

Friday, May 7th, 2004

Halfway to Hunt today, I suddenly realized that I left my second skein of mohair at home. Dammit!!! This means that grandmother is going to get a preview of the fertility shawl on Sunday. I’ll have to finish it when I get home. On the plus side, this means I’ve got more time to finish […]

I’m getting worried

Thursday, May 6th, 2004

I have used almost half of the yarn I’ve got for this project already. This is not looking like it’s going to be a full-sized shawl to me. Fiddlesticks. I’ll keep at it though. Is it just me, or does the curling of the needles in that picture make the whole thing very reminiscent of […]
