  • Life Dispatch, Vol. 3

    We are thick in the heart of Fall. Here it’s the Final Days. The decent weather is coming to an end. Daylight savings is next week. It’s time.

  • Meet the Neighborhood Alpacas

    Meet the neighborhood alpacas: Nicoli, Jedidiah, and Don Peru. Those are the males, anyway. The females are in the neighboring field. Sadly they can’t reach us to enjoy the tasty alpaca pellets we share with our furry friends that live a few houses down. There’s a silly fence in the way. Apparently fences are the …

    Until last week, my hand knit accessories lived in a tangled, disorganized pile in a dirty storage bin in the bottom of the bedroom closet, chaotically disorganized amidst the non-knitted accessories. Plus a few old cottons tees. I will pause while you gasp and then regain your composure. It is criminal, I know. A hand …
