Month: January 2012

Postponed …

Christmas (with my dad) has been pushed back – his household has ‘the crud’ (URI).  And while I love him very much, I would prefer he keep that to himself (and my uncle is immuno-compromised due to transplant).  So … another week… Read More

Wow – Mother Nature is not happy …

As I look outside, seeing the snow blowing sideways across our yard … Brrrr!  I’d much rather stay in the studio today – but my other (real) job beckons … I do hope folks stay inside tonight! I continue with my successes, failures… Read More

Did I mention …

I love my studio!!  It’s true – I do.  Even when experiments don’t come out as planned … it’s not as painful.  I just moved on to other projects, letting the set-backs ruminate for a bit … They’re almost cute – darn… Read More

Happy Birthday Old Guy …

WWU: Lots of feast to famine this weekend.  Sunday night started as SRO in my little ER – I don’t think I stopped running (ok, ‘walking briskly’) until 1130-12mn … infant IV’s, conscious sedation for dislocations, cellulitis requiring admission, kidney stones, arrhythmias… Read More

I’m supposed to be sleeping …

But the moon is getting full – and that seems to be stressing me … not that last night was bad – but I didn’t know the lunar status last night.  Now I do … With the larger-than-desired condition of the moon… Read More

Slightly creative with a curious mind = BRAT!

Yep – that’s me … While packages are still arriving with my new-found embossing hobby, I spent a few hours last night researching yet another interest … Still in the research phase (which means I’m eyeing some books), I haven’t spent any money… Read More
