My First Public Post

Well, now that this scatterbrained foray into the blogosphere is now public, I’ll bet that anyone who sees the post below this one will probably be very confused by it. If memory serves, it’s title refers to the fact that I reached my desired word count during the April edition of Camp Nanowrimo.

I’m not really sure what I’ll be writing about in the posts to come, but I can tell you that each of the following will be mentioned at least once:

  • Language study (Spanish and Korean)
  • Typewriters (I’m waiting on on my newest one, and there’s sure to be a whole post devoted to it 🙂
  • History/Anthropology
  • Books
  • Anything from WordPress Daily Prompts that catches my fancy.

So, I’ll just see what the next couple of weeks bring. Until then, have a great rest of July! 🙂


Misadventures in Sewing


As a warning, this blog will have little continuity from post to post (except by sheer coincidence).                                                                                                                                     In keeping with this prediction, I will transition from the soul-searching words of Emerson, to a description of what is only my second completed foray into the world of handsewing. The finished product is supposed to be a rabbit, but it resembles one of Alice Tinker’s “elephants” from The Vicar of Dibley.  I only completed this project by hand because my sewing machine repeatedly jammed and vindictively ate my fabric. However, I will continue on as my new semester schedule allows, and if I can manage to fit my sewing machine into my suitcase. Only time will tell.
