Aidan turned 15 on Thursday (yikes!) and I got a new laptop. This, in fact, is my first blog post from the new computer. So far, so good.

Just a little chit chat on this Wednesday morning. It's been a while since we've done that.

Sometimes I'd rather run off and watch TV than come up with a witty teaser line. Sorry about that...

You realize just how worth-the-effort it is to squirrel away summer fruit, when you are breathing in the smell of a June farmer's market on the last day of January.

The good news is that I had no problem at all lazily scrolling through my Instagram and Flickr feeds to pick out some nice images this week.

To look at this week's mosaic, you'd think this week was all about food. Junk food at that!

Bowls and mandalas seem to dominate the latter part of the week.

The top drawer in our bathroom cabinet was stuffed to the gills with make-up, perfumes, lotions, and jewelry, about 90% of which I haven't used since 1999.

Well, looking at this week's pictures, it would be hard to deny that it's winter.

Story

Polka Dot Cottage
Introduction
I raise boys, take pictures, knit sweaters, keep a less-than-perfect house, blog memories, sew skirts, play with clay, daydream about beach weekends, avoid home improvement projects, crochet blankets, and spend slightly more time looking at screens than I probably should.

Thinking of adding me? In case we don't know each other personally, here are some circles that would be a good fit for me:
  • crafty
  • polymer clay
  • sewing
  • loom knitting, knitting, crochet
  • photography
  • slice-of-life blogger
Bragging rights
I have a camera and a basement full of craft supplies, and I'm not afraid to use them.
Education
  • Drew University
    Computer Science, 1989 - 1993
