Celebrate the Small Things

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. In my defense the past couple weeks have been crazy!

Turkey & Things

Well, I have pretty much made it through another NaNo. I have a shiny new image and everything! I’ve also been reading getting ready for Thanksgiving. We have a turkey defrosting in the fridge, and this takes forever. It takes planning and stick-with-it-ness. Which is a word, spellcheck! (Apparently spellcheck also does not think spellcheck […]

A few more pictures: Berlin’s Celebration of Lights at the Brandenburg Gate Snow in Austria All right, that’s it! Back to work.
