Of Books And Friends

The weather outside is one hundred percent fall-like: blowy, stormy, just enough chill to the air to keep me inside, glad I can be inside and just listen to it. I was going to settle down to read this evening, but thought better of it as I have been reading. All. Day. Not that I …

What’s Going On

Hello October! I’m loving the color creeping through the trees, and (some) colder weather. We’ve already been apple picking, and have our pumpkins to carve. I am endeavoring to keep our kitchen island top cleared, and have a few fun things to take the place of junk that used to sit there: candles, miniature pumpkins, …

Stranger Things

Little bit of a rough day today- Luke and I felt that I should see a doctor about the miscarriage, and so I went in this morning. The nurse that had scheduled me gave some pushback: How did I know I was pregnant? Maybe irregularities were happening in my advanced age? and so on. It …

In it are just over a thousand bite-sized pieces of information that come from the different branches of mathematics. Whenever I get the notion, I’ll pull this big tome off of my bookshelf, like …

What Is Wrong

Indulge me for one more post, down in a hole in a log in the middle of the sea. I’ve been down more than I’ve been up lately, and it makes me ponder what might be causing it. Last week about this time I would have thought things were looking up- I had just started …
